Mac or Jack????
OK, so lets pretend for minute. Lets say you are in some life threatening situation and need to be rescued. Who do you want to rescue you? MacGyver or Jack Bauer???
Most people know who MacGyver is. The ever adorable Richard Dean Anderson, later to become Jack O'Neill on Stargate SG1. Mac was ever so clever, didn't believe in guns and used his mind to get out of situations that people still talk about!
Jack Bauer is the character played by Kiefer Sutherland on the series 24. This is an intense series that just began its 8th season. My son, Chris, discovered this series I think on HULU and then started buying the DVD's. I spent several summer weekends with my blood pressure raised sitting on the sofa watching 24. Jack Bauer is a government trained agent doing what ever it takes to save the day.
So, rather than talk about the weather, I thought we could get a discussion going about TV characters! Think about it, who would you rather have save you? The intellectual guy who makes something out of nothing and can 'Jerry' rig anything, or the gun blazing fist blowing federal agent that is going to save the day time and again?
