An excellent series that grabs you and doesn't let go- holds up 18 years later
Verified purchase
It’s hard to believe that the series “24” is 18 years old and for fun I decided to go back and revisit Season 1 of this ground breaking show. I’m happy to report that for the most part it holds up well. Sure, it’s amusing to see all the antiquated tech they are using; flip phones, Palm Pilots and such but the real time format remains compelling. Kiefer Sutherland brings a credible intensity to the starring role of Counter Terrorist Unit Agent Jack Bauer and as the hours click by the viewer palpably feels the stress that he’s under. For Jack the ends justify the means and he is willing to abandon his moral compass when necessary making him a force to be reckoned with.

It’s the day of the California Presidential Primaries and an African American candidate is the front runner to beat; but there’s a terrorist threat to assassinate him. Senator David Palmer is everything you’d want in a chief executive. Dennis Haysbert is superb in his portrayal of the stalwart Palmer and makes you wonder if President Obama took any cues from his style- seems like it to me. Palmer’s wife however is another matter and her scheming and plotting to make sure she gets to the White House puts her at odds with her spouse. The plot is complex, earlier in his career Senator Palmer was in leadership of an oversight committee that greenlit a mission is Kosovo that ended up with the target Victor Drazen (Dennis Hopper) dead but his wife and daughter as collateral damage. The then Spec Ops leader of the team that conducted the mission was none other than Jack Bauer. The sons of Drazen want revenge on Bauer and Palmer and will stop at nothing to get it. Jack’s daughter and wife are kidnapped and used as leverage to make him infiltrate Palmer’s security detail and kill him. To make matters worse there is a mole (or two) at the CTU Los Angeles HQ so Jack doesn’t know who to trust.

It all works but after awhile the constant peril daughter Kim (Elisha Cuthbert) finds herself in becomes laughable; how one person could have such bad luck is hard to believe. Wife Terri Bauer (Leslie Hope) also finds herself frequently in danger too; get rescued, get caught again, repeat. If he were smart Jack would get Kim a new identity and ship her off to some remote Swiss boarding school, she’s too much of a liability to him and his job.

The ending is harsh and the duplicitous traitor in CTU isn’t revealed until the penultimate episode and you’re kept guessing until then. Enough false doubt is placed on a couple of other players to make you wonder but when the true mole is exposed it’s a surprise. I watched all 9 seasons, the movie, and the recent failed reboot. Towards the end of the original 8 season run things began to get repetitive and predictable; Jack’s invincibility became increasingly hard to swallow. Still, ‘24’ is an excellent show in its earlier years and well worth watching.

Great binge series!

My best friend told me to watch this series years ago but I never seemed to find the time. This past week I've been down with a severe sinus attack so it seemed a good time to check out "24". WOW!! Non-stop action and intrigue, just the way I like it. I'm not a big fan of gratuitous violence and many so-called intrigue shows have a lot of that but "24" doesn't. Oh, it has its share of violence, some of which was new to me, but at least it made sense to the story. I admit I was a tad perturbed at some of the stupid choices a few of the characters made that put them in harms way, but it's easy to armchair those situations. Ditto the fact that there's a lot of rogue activity in the agency which immediately puts a business owner on edge because of the gaps in protocol, but overall, it's a great series. I've watched 54 episodes already and unless they get too political, I'll probably go the distance with this one. (It's a pet peeve of mine when producers rewrite history to suit their programming.) I must say, before this series the only exposure I had to Kiefer Sutherland was his character in "A Few Good Men". He's terrific in this series, as are the other regs. Lots of great action and good storylines!

The best, smartest, most creative, most innovative action-intrigue show I have ever seen
Verified purchase
I am not a tv watcher, per se. I generally am disdainful of people who like tv shows. But this blows me away. This is the best, smartest, most innovative action/intrigue show I have ever seen. It has covert-agent action-intrigue, national-level political intrigue, office politics, family politics, intense action (not crappy "tv" quality at all! But motion picture quality), taut, intense drama, and astounding twists. A season is 24 hour-long episodes. The 24 episodes represent 24 hours in a day. So, a season is events that happen in a day. It works because it gives tbe writers astounding room to flesh out the intimate aspects of a story. In most other tv shows, things are resolved in an hour. This takes 24 hours. We have been binge-watching and are half way through season 2. And, going back for more tonight.

Still one of the best
Verified purchase
Watched this season at least three times in my life. Jack Bauer and Senator Palmer are true heroes. The excitement and tension is top notch. Super action with a good political intrigue. Excellent villains.

It used to bother me that some of the plot twists were too unrealistic as were the surprise traitors, and mean people turning good, but these become established 24 tropes. It's all in good fun to keep us on the edge of our seats. It is pure entertainment in good spirits.

Warning: once you start watching, you will not be able to stop!

Be careful - this will suck you in and you won't be able to stop watching! I had always heard how good this show was, but I just never got around to watching it when it was popular. Now I'm glad I didn't because I don't have to wait a whole week in between episodes to find out what happens next - how excruciating that must have been with all the cliff-hangers in this show!

I started watching Season 1 on my Amazon Fire Stick on a Saturday and ended up binge-watching the entire season that weekend. The story is so fast-paced and riveting, that you can't stop watching. It's like a good book that you can't put down - you have to find out what happens next.

I'm on Season 2 now. :)

"Trust me" as Jack Bauer would say, this series is excellent.
Verified purchase
I have loved this series since it first aired in 2001. I never missed an exciting moment from the very beginning to the very end. This show created a new kind of TV drama, there had never been any show in "real time" to my knowledge before this one and I did hang on ever second. That little clock ticking down the time just heightened the suspense. The plot(s), the characters, the actors were are so spot on. I had to re-watch and the third viewing for me (maybe more) and it still has me as hooked as it did the first time I ever saw it.

What's all the hype about this series?
Verified purchase
Interesting approach - unusual story. I missed the series when it first came out - but it was highly recommended. I found myself questioning many times why this was supposed to be worth while. I still wonder whether 180º turns are genius by the writers or just stupid tricks (like a revelation that the prior scenes were dreams - and not real) - but I am leaning toward the latter. I am hoping that the person recommending this series was right - just recommending something later than Season 1.

And, how many times can a person be kidnapped in a 24 hour day?

24: A flawed jewel
Verified purchase
Writing for a TV is a skill, and not one that many have. Having to maintain pace, coherence and continuity within sharply limited six or seven-minute segments is a remarkably hard thing to do. That the writers of 24 succeed, and have done so over several years, and more in a context that imposes even more limits --the action in each episode takes place in real time of the hour, so that each TV tear ultimately is composed of twenty-four consecutive episodes, all making up one full day-- is even more noteworthy.

And they DO maintain the dramatic interest at a fairly high level. That's a notable acvhievement. In some ways, Season One remains the best of the series, although later years introduce some compelling characters.

But as good as the writing is, it's still good only in the context of television, where the general level of dramatic (and comedic) writing is terrible. In part, that is because network writers are, as a group, limited in their knowledge of so many of the subjects they write about. Worse, they all, or almost all, have a tendency to use the mindless cliches of TV land, when faced with the need to develop a situation. A case in point: Law Enforcement personnel are trained NEVER to give up their weapons in a hostage confrontation, for obvious reasons --drop your weapon and you have effectively become a hostage yourself-- but in 24 that happens all the time. CTU is, on the face of it, the most incompetent organization ever: Over the course of several seasons, it has twice been attacked, each time with horrific casualties; there have been at least half-a-dozen moles acting within the unit, and on two occasions, lose a much-needed witness to a shooting, once by the widow of a slain CTU agent, who finds her husband's gun in his desk while cleaning it out, and once by a teenage girl, a victim of a sexual predator, who kills him with a gun in his apartment after he is captured by CTU and while he is preparing to lead them to the other perpetrators. Both scenes are preposterous: No organization would leave a weapon, and a loaded one at that, among an employee's effects, and no competent law enforcement would fail to immediately search for weapons upon securing a crime scene. In addition, CTU is always losing a witness or suspect they're holding or transporting to ambush, to thr point where you can almost bet with certainty that if a bad guy is captured a few episodes before the last, he will escape, somehow.

But that's how the writers advance a story. Does it take away from the overall effects of the drama? It depends on who you are, I suppose. Most people --as evidenced by the show's popularity-- are undismayed by such things. Even I can overlook them, or at least suspend my displeasure, and enjoy the narrative skill and the fairly good acting --Kiefer Sutherland's performance, overall is excellent, and Mary Lynn Rajskub, who does not appear in Season One, is a treasure.

Contrasting 24 with another popular and long-running series from roughly the same period, Lost, 24 is much better written, far more cohesive and, for the most part, more believable. I would advise that, if you buy or rent the series, that you draw it out and not view too many episodes at once. Things get rather breathless if you do.

Dspite its flaws, 24, for a network TV drama, is a fine effort, and makes for an enjoyable evening.
