Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) is one heck of a CTU agent. Unfortunately, this superagent has encountered trouble in every shape and form over the last eight seasons of 24, from former CTU agent-turned-mole Nina Meyers to President Charles Logan to Jack's own father. TVGuide.com takes a look back at the best baddies in Jack's wake.

24's Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) and less-than-plausible story lines have always had an uneasy alliance. Every really bad day of Bauer's packs so many plot devices into 24 hours it's hard to always keep things fresh. Here are a few of the most ridiculous plotlines the writers of the Fox series conjured up over eight seasons:

Nothing brings a family together like a bunch of purloined suitcase nukes. Or so we gather from 24 this season, which apparently has split the fan base over whether it was a good idea to reveal the Big Bad from this and last season to be Jack Bauers own brother: the sniveling Graemplayed by one of TVs most reliable go-to villains, former ER irritant Paul McCrane. (Think maybe Jack can arrange for a helicopter to fall on this creep as well?)As usual, Im willing to go along for the ride, trusting it wont take us into Kim Bauer-meets-the-cougar territory. This storyline is just the latest of many risks taken by this show, which has ruthlessly killed off favorite characters (starting with the death of Jacks wife Teri at the end of the first season) and brought Jack back from the dead, both literally and figuratively, prompting allegations of shark-jumping almost from the start.
