24 To Cut Back On Torture

24 Executive Producer, Howard Gordon has told the Philadelphia Inquirer that the show is going to scale back on the abundance of Jack Bauer torture scenes this season. But Gordon insists they're not making the changes because viewer groups or the military have pressured him to do so. "What was once an extraordinary or exceptional moment is starting to feel a little trite. The idea of physical coercion or torture is no longer a novelty or surprise. It's not something that we, as writers, want to use as a crutch. We'd like to find other ways for Jack to get information out of suspects," says Gordon.
