A fast-paced action thriller in which the safety of the country is at stake and every second counts. 24 pits Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), a counter-terrorism expert, against the clock. Each of the 24 episodes in a season correspond to one hour of the day, and Agent Bauer will use any means necessary to neutralize the threat in time.
24.. ah 24.. Was my number 1 TV show of all time. (I like to number these things in my head) Toppled by Battlestar Galactica. Purely for the ending. 24 did not have a good ending. The last season was 12 episodes, rushed and didn't have the flow it did when they had the full 24-hour-episodes - obviously.
24 is a little pro-US government for my liking - but very much backing the underdog - although he's not always the underdog... Kiefer Sutherland - well known - but blew up his name with this show, and fully deserved, entirely great show.
