Product Description

Amazon.ca

There's not one cougar to be found in 24's dynamic third season, and that's good news for everyone. After Jack Bauer's daughter Kim (Elisha Cuthbert) survived hokey hazards in season 2, she's now a full-time staffer at CTU, the L.A.-based intelligence beehive that's abuzz once again--three years after the events of "Day Two"--when a vengeful terrorist threatens to release a lethal virus that could wipe out much of the country's population. Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) attempts to broker a deal for the virus involving drug kingpin Ramon Salazar (Joaquim de Almeida), whose operation Jack successfully infiltrated at high personal cost: to maintain his cover, he got hooked on heroin. That potentially deadly triangle--drug lords, addiction, and bioterrorism on a massive scale--sets the 24-hour clock ticking in a tight, action-packed plot involving a potential traitor in CTU's midst; the return of TV's greatest villainesses in Nina Meyers (Sarah Clarke) and former First Lady Sherry Palmer (Penny Johnson Jerald); a troubled romance between Kim and Jack's new partner Chase (James Badge Dale); and a scandalized reelection campaign by president David Palmer (Dennis Haysbert), who monitors CTU as they struggle to (literally) save the day.

The intricately woven subplots that are 24's greatest strength are masterfully developed here, and character arcs are equally strong, especially among CTU staffers Tony (Carlos Bernard) and his wife Michelle (Reiko Aylesworth); CTU director Ryan Chappelle (Paul Schulze), who is season 2's tragic bargaining chip; and the annoying but well-intentioned Chloe O'Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub), who makes pivotal contributions with by-the-book efficiency. It's 24's superior casting that overcomes the series' occasional lapses in credibility, and season 3's twists make marathon viewing a nerve-wracking delight. By the time it's all over, with a high body count and the surgical reattachment of a main character's severed hand, 24 once again leaves you gratefully exhausted. As always, Sutherland anchors the series in the role he was born to play. When Jack takes a private moment to release 24 hours' worth of near-fatal tension and psychological anguish, Sutherland proves that 24's dramatic priorities are as important as its thriller momentum. DVD extras include behind-the-scenes featurettes (about the prison break sequence, climactic F-18 Hornet air-strike, and real-life bio-weaponry) that pay welcome tribute to the series' hard-working crew, who create Emmy-worthy television under pressures as intense as 24 itself. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Great series, but season 3 not the best Nov. 22 2006
Format:DVD
24: Season Three was a good season, but not the best I would say so far. The beginning couple hours could have been taken out and brought right to Jack breaking out Salazar where the real plot begins. They definitely have some great plot twists and action throughout the whole series, and some hours were action packed and made us want to get right to the next episode. It is a very addictive series, especially when they being in old characters and introduce new ones. Jack Bauer was marvelous as always with his acting and even shows he is human after all.

However, the only thing I was disappointed in season three was the ending. In season 1 & 2 the season finale in the last 5 minutes were jaw dropping, throw you back in your seat "where the hell did that come from" ending. Season three had no climax ( with a large twist like the others) and didn't explain where they want to take it and what was to happen. It felt like there should have been another episode after to continue on, but there wasn't. I watched the previews for season 4 and I know what it's about, and how they left the ending in season 3 did not fully point to the direction where season 4 was heading to. They could have easily put a few words of dialogue at the end for foreshadowing to lead to the changes coming up in season 4. Some of the episodes ended better than the season finale.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is what TV is all about. Sept. 26 2005
By Eric
Format:DVD
Groundbreaking. Innovative. Intense. 24 is all of these things and more. But the question prospective viewers really want to know is, "Is the series worth watching?" The answer is a triumphant "Yes."
Jack and his counter-terrorist crew return in Season 3 to battle an impending bio-terrorism threat from a pair of Mexican drug lords. As is always the case, not everything is as it first appears. Along the way, new friends are made, shaky alliances are born, and trustworthy partners become enemies. It's all in a hard day's work for Jack, and viewers will undoubtedly get a kick out of watching all the plot twists play out.
24 has always been about putting the viewer through a high-intensity thrill ride, and Season 3 holds up wonderfully in that regard. Key characters are constantly put in the line of fire, and it's anybody's guess who will make it to the nail-biting next hour. There is one episode in particular, about two-thirds of the way through the season, that is incredibly frenzied, even by 24's lofty standards. Without giving away any spoilers, that is one episode in which I had to take a break from 24 for day or two afterwards and let the craziness of the events settle in - such was the ferocious emotional impact.
Besides the non-stop action, the next best quality of 24 is its razor-sharp dialogue. Again, Season 3 does not disappoint. All of the characters are given lines that either flesh out their personas marvelously, or contribute to the madcap pacing of the show. It's a joy to watch Kiefer Sutherland switch between his gruff, angry interrogation techniques and his more diplomatic tone when he talks to his superiors.

2.0 out of 5 stars Melodramtic April 30 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
My friends highly recommended this show to me, telling me how addictive it is.
After 3 months of trying to get through the DVDs, I just don't get what the fuss is about.
Off the top, I can't get past the bad dialogue and melodramatic acting. I understand it's a tense plot, but even the bits that aren't life or death or career ending for the characters are played with the same level of seriousness so that there are no ups and downs to the show, just all ups. I can't get into the characters' problems from being distracted by all the capital-A Acting, particularly in the case of Sutherland. The dialogue is as overwrought and corny as a Vin Diesel movie or daytime soap opera. Really, just listen to any of the dialogue between Salazar and anyone. It's cringe-worthy.
I also can't get past the art direction: it stretches the imagination quite a bit to picture elite hackers dressing that impeccably. Counter-terrorism requires a business dress code? And after spending money for the level of technology they'd need and the experts needed to operate it, I don't see how a government agency could justify spending that much money on custom architecture and interior design, unless they snapped up the building at a bankruptcy sale from the previous dot com owners.
I can suspend my disbelief for any one or pair of these problems, but not all of them together.
On the plus side, I do like the real-time hook for the show, one day, one season, one hour per show. I find this is the one inspired element of the entire show. Although knowing what develops early in the show, one gets the sense that things will twist and turn like a mountain road as the hours go by. I don't find myself hooked at the end of each show as my friends had promised.
