Jack Bauer VS. Ethan Hunt

I'm a big '24' fan. I've been watching every episode since episode one of season one. I think Jack Bauer is the man! This season, his 'manness' has increased even more due to that amazing bag he's been carrying around. That bag, which I call the 'jack pack' has everything in it! With Jack and his pack, there's no problem too tough.
I'm not a big 'Mission Impossible' fan. I've seen the first two movies and didn't like either one, so I went to see the new M.I. a couple nights ago feeling less than enthusiastic. Man, was I in for a suprise. I really liked it!
So, while we were watching '24' on Monday night, I mentioned that I thought if Jack Bauer were to face off against Ethan Hunt that Ethan may actually be able to take Jack out. After I realized the heresy I had just uttered,I quickly corrected myself to avoid the ridicule of my family and friends.

But I must wonder. Jack....or Ethan....?

Hmm, my first reaction was to have a desire to excommunicate you from the Church of Bauer. But...I saw mission impossible yesterday and I have to say Ethan Hunt is also the man. I mean, he took out that stinking drone plane with a machine gun. I think I prefer to think about it as Jack and Ethan would be really good friends seeking to eliminate evil from the world.

Hey Kurt-

I have been meaning to post on your blog when I discovered it after listening to the SYM podcast. By the way, have you considered joining up with your other junior high people and doing a simply junior high podcast? That would be sweet for all of us "just junior high pastors" . The only problem is there aren't very many of us. However, it would still be cool.

Anyway, you probably don't remember me but my name is Josh and I sat down with you and a couple of other JH pastor types in Anaheim 2 years ago at YS conference after one of your sessions. Whoa that was a really long run-on sentence.

It is fun to see you are blogging. And thanks for all the help you give so many JHer workers.

Sorry this comment has nothing about 24. I really tried to get into the 3rd season of 24, however I missed a few episodes, got lost and quit watching.

Comparing Jack Bauer to Ethan Hunt is like comparing Paul to Peter. They are both amazing but function in different contexts. Today's over-spiritualization is brought to you by...

That is a tough question. I'm a huge fan of 24 and I had the same reaction you had when I watched MI3 (I also was not thrilled with the first two.)

IF I had to choose I would have to go with Jack. Jack is just the man! Besides Ethan Hunt doesn't have a 'jack pack.'

i'm with mike lovato.
they'd be unstoppable if they combined forces!!

Vato- The Church of Bauer?? There's a church that I'd love to be on staff at!

Seriously, gotta go with Bauer on this one. Have you guys heard the list of all the JB's who are kicking butt? There's Jack of course, then Jack Bristow (ALIAS), Jason Bourne (Bourne series), and of course James Bond. Interesting...I think I know which initials I'm using to name my next kid!

BTW- Love the blog Kurt! Welcome to the dark side. =)

Jach vs. Ethan?
There should be NO CONTEST! Jack is the man and could take him down. Obviously you need to brush up on some re-runs. But since you realized what you said, this member of the Bauer church forgives you.

Guys...I'm just wondering about the use of gadgets. Until we saw Jack fizzle the PDA of the German spy, we had never seen him use gadgets. Ethan is a gadget hound...

David Sternberg said...

Let's not forget that Chloe can take Ethan Hunt too- she's the woman version of Jack Bauer. In fact, maybe even Miles could take Ethan.

Jack wins hands down...jack would torture his own mother to get useful intel..so IMO he is a total badass..
