In his last TV Madness battle, Jack Bauer ended up in a tie with Malcolm Reynolds. Since the tie-breaker goes to the character who had the longest running show in episode total, Bauer moves on to face Seven of Nine. Let’s see which of them will go to the finals.
Bauer is right where I thought he’d at this point in the tournament. Seven of Nine is sort of a surprise. I didn’t really expect her to make it this far, but she’s outlasted some great competition along the way. Now we have to wonder if Bauer has enough left in him to take on a cyborg from the future.
Jack Bauer – Not much more needs to be said about the man. He took down Malcolm Reynolds, a character who’d faced down his fair share of extraterrestrial bad guys. It was a very tough fight and came down to a tie-breaker, but Bauer has shown that he is one of, if not the, pre-eminent badasses on television.
Seven of Nine – I thought for sure that characters like Fox Mulder or Raylan Givens would’ve been her demise, but Seven of Nine has powered through. Now she finds herself going up against a threatening man – but that’s just it; he’s just a man (though I like to believe that Jack Bauer has superhuman powers). She’s done well against earthlings thus far. Will she continue?
Final Word: I don’t know much about Seven of Nine, but I remember that clip from ‘Star Trek: Voyager’ where she wrestled The Rock and lost. She bragged about being a superior fighting machine, and then proceeded to get her butt kicked. She’s vulnerable and won’t be able to dodge every bullet coming her way from the muzzle of Bauer’s gun. Bauer FTW.
