Jack Bauer to take a nap during an episode of ‘24’

Even in it’s seventh season, FOX's hit show “24” is still one of the most exciting hours on television. Yet that hasn't stopped many from criticizing the show and show's writers want to try and answer this criticism.
"Ever since 24 went on the air, people have been calling into question the show's realism," said Joel Surnow, creator of the hit series. "Not really about the terrorist plots, we all know that's believable. People just don't believe our characters can go through 24 hours without taking off some time to rest."

For that reason, plans are being made to have main character Jack Bauer take a nap in an upcoming episode, a nap that may stretch over two to three episodes.

"Having Jack take a nap does three things for this show," said Surnow. "One, it makes the show more believable. Second, it will give us a chance to develop some of the other characters. And third, we can build up Jack's return. How long will he nap, did he set his alarm? People will have to keep tuning in to find out."

"I think it's a great idea," said Kiefer Sutherland, who plays Jack Bauer. "It brings a touch of realism to the show. If it were up to me, I'd also like to see Jack sit on the toilet for half an episode; fans of the show could watch him poop and I think it would be a good way for them to relate to a character that may otherwise seem, well, superhuman."
