Last season at Blogs4Bauer, we counted every death on the kill counter. Others copied the system and now every other 24 site has someone counting the bodies before they hit the floor. We're going to do things a little different this season. Jack Bauer's body count is going to work on a points-based system that was first developed by the evil geniuses who brought us the BCS system in college football.
This season, it sounds like we don't have enough fingers or space to tally up the number of bodies left behind Jack's wake. In today's New York Post, they review the upcoming Jack Bauer Power Hours and state (what Tyler and some other hacks already know) that we have been under attack for some time before the President Palmer picks up the phone and orders a #45, which happens to be a tortured Jack Bauer and a side of rice.
As the sixth season of "24" begins, we learn that the attacks have been underway for about 11 weeks in at least 10 cities. - NY PostToo many bodies, so little time. So therefore we are laying down some guidelines for this season's Kill Counter©.
Kill Counter© Guidelines
1. Only kills made by Jack Bauer will be counted.
2. Jack Bauer has to be present in order for a kill to be counted. No mind-control crap.
3. If Jack Bauer kills himself, a paradox will be created thus ending any future use of this kill counter and/or could end the world as we know it.
4. If Jack Bauer dies, the Kill Counter© will go on. Because...
5. If Jack's ghost kills someone, it counts.
6. Bonus points will be awarded if Jack goes beyond the call of duty in killing someone by taunting and/or torturing before killing them.
We will still post a weekly Blogs4Bauer Kill Counter Challenge, where you guess the total number of points that will be added to the counter during the week's show. The closest to the actual number will be the winner. We will post the first challenge on Friday and it will cover the firs two hours on Sunday. The second one will cover Monday night's hours and will be posted Monday.

Got any other additions to the points/bonus system like how we can incorporate a Combo System so Jack gets multiple points for bulk kills? Enter them in the comments.
