Bonster's TV Show Recommendations

24

24

Starring Kiefer Sutherland as federal agent Jack Bauer, working with the Los Angeles branch of CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit), 24 is a fast-paced, nail-biter of a show on Fox that began airing in 2001. There are government conspiracies, plots, emotional family matters, deceptions, torture, explosions, etc. all in the name of patriotic duty. Each show follows a strict, real-time timeline, so that in 24 episodes only one day has passed. They are the longest days of Jack Bauer's life. Also starring Dennis Haysbert, Carlos Bernard, Elisha Cuthbert, Reiko Aylesworth, Sarah Clarke, Penny Johnson Jerald, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver, D.B. Woodside, William Devane, and more.

"Love it. It is like crack. Jack Bauer pwns."

Aqua Teen Hunger Force

Aqua Teen Hunger Force

Aqua Teen Hunger Force (a.k.a. ATHF) is an animated comedy shown on Cartoon Network as part of (and the most popular show on) Adult Swim. The series features three fast food items, the Aqua Teens, whose purpose is to solve crimes. As the series progressed, the crime-solving was abandoned, though many episodes still involve villains. The title of the show is a misnomer: The characters have no major affiliation with water (though many episodes involve their neighbor's pool), they aren't teenagers (their ages are never really established, but they do pay bills and live on their own), and they are rarely shown as any kind of a force. "Hunger" seems to be the only word that has a bearing on the characters' lives. There is also little emphasis on continuity between episodes: virtually all of the recurring cast members have died at least once. The focus is instead on character interaction and a pervasive form of brutal, ironic humor.

"One of the highlights of Adult Swim. Biting wit, groovy characters, and an all-around fun time."
