’24’ phone number a direct line to cast

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Over 50,000 fans of 24 in the US have called a phone number which appeared on the show.

In the most recent episode to air in the US, a shot of a phone number was displayed on a character’s mobile phone. Thousands of die-hard fans have dialled the number, and have found themselves speaking to members of the 24 cast.

And so it is confirmed. There really are people out there who are unimaginably sad. Why would anyone in the right mind phone a number they saw on a mobile phone in a TV series?

do you think Audrey is really dead or it’s all a lie that Jack’s brother set up to throw Jack off if he escaped(which obviously he did)?
