24 Update

The earlier post on this topic is here.

TV Week: "In’s exclusive Backlot Talk podcast, David Fury -- who wrote the “Day 6: 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM” episode of Fox’s “24” -- today defended the show against criticism that its depictions of torture may be influencing the behavior of U.S. military personnel.

“It’s disturbing to think that members of our military learning their techniques and training are getting it from entertainment like ‘24,’” Mr. Fury said in an interview with TelevisionWeek Publisher Chuck Ross. “One would think that their training would be far more extensive in the real world and that they’d understand that this is a heightened reality.”"
