    Yes, that bugged me also. In fact there was one scene where some US good guy backups arrive and shout "Federal Agents!" at the bad guys. Huh? US Federal Agents in the UK means nothing!! In the real world of course the UK would take the lead with maybe some help from the US but this is the world of 24 and ONLY Jack and his backups are allowed to solve the world's problems!!!

    If you took 1/2 dozen people, and they all pronounced nuclear correctly, THAT would be something that would stand out. Not people mispronouncing it, which a huge number of people do.

    I never understood why it's so hard. Take away the first 2 letters, and the rest is "clear," a real English word that nobody has trouble pronouncing. Yes, technically it's "clee rrr" but saying "clear" would get you most of the way there.

    new-clear sounds less grating to me than nucular.

    when i was very young, i remember the endless line of comedians making fun of president carter's "new-kia wah".

    after slowly fading into history over 2 decades, we were then blessed with president bush's "new-cue-lure wahr".

    nearly 40 years, across the ideological divide, not much has changed. :)

    I think we assume Jack recovered it from Cheng.

    I think it happens when people haven't seen it written when they learn the word. They learn it wrong, and by the time they see it written, it's drilled in their heads incorrectly so much that they just don't bother.

    There was a time when I thought "nuclear" was a bomb, and "nucular" was the family. I looked it up, found out I was wrong, corrected it, and moved on. Many people have trouble with that. Like when you point out to someone the word is "ask", and not "axe", so they roll their eyes and continue saying it wrong.

    This song must REALLY annoy you then. Skip to 3:15.

    I remember one of the other military guys (not Philip Winchester) pronouncing it correctly. Prior to that my wife and I had decided the director was forcing them to mispronounce it because we couldn't stomach the idea of handsome devil Philip saying it incorrectly.

    So out of the entire show and that is what they complain about? People pronounce different words different ways. I wonder why people even watch TV . It seems like people expect too much from it. TV has always been this way.

    It's Alan Sepinwall, you're lucky he didn't complain about Chloe's fake tattoos.

    you drop nukes

    so nukes must be short for nuclear

    so it must be
    nuke - ya - ler

    Yeah, it's just people who have never had to say or hear the word on a regular basis, and never learned how to say it.

    Which I can see for the President, I suppose (who we can assume was not in a line of work pre-election that required him to say or hear the word a lot), and certainly for Jack (who is really just a thug, albeit the world's greatest thug), but not at all for the military adviser (who presumably says and hears the word many times a day, and would never have been taken seriously enough to reach his position if he didn't know how to pronounce it.

    Ah, I didn't remember that (I was pretty bored with the show by then). So there's no excuse for him, either!

    Probably just stupid/ignorant actors. ;)
