Product Description

Product Description

Eighteen months after faking his own death, Jack Bauer is forced to return to Los Angeles when it becomes apparent that the only four people who know he is still alive are being systemically targeted for assassination. The assassinations coincide with the signing of an anti-terrorism treaty between Russia and the U.S., leading Jack to suspect a link between the assassinations, the treaty, and a group of Russian terrorists. But as events slowly unfold it becomes apparent that the day's horrific events were originally set in motion by someone within our country's own administration – an individual with the power and resources to thwart Jack's every move.

Arguably the series' best season to date, season 5 of 24 literally starts with a bang and never lets up, with an intricate executive-level conspiracy to control Central Asia's oil supply. Piling crisis upon crisis in an escalating series of deceptions, twists, and deeply hidden agendas, the day-long ordeal begins with a devastating political assassination connected to a disgraced former CTU agent (Peter Weller) and a radical group of Russian separatists (led by British actor Julian Sands) threatening to release lethal nerve gas in Los Angeles to protest a U.S./Russian treaty about to be signed by President Charles Logan (Gregory Itzin). As Logan's unstable wife Martha (Jean Smart), Secret Service agent Aaron Pierce (Glenn Morshower), and chief of staff Mike Novick (Jude Ciccolella) gradually uncover the conspiracy, CTU maverick Jack Bauer (series star Kiefer Sutherland) emerges from self-imposed exile to aid his CTU colleagues in a life-threatening quest for the truth. Meanwhile, CTU chief Bill Buchanan (James Morrison) is thwarted by an inexperienced, overbearing superior (Sean Astin) and an executive takeover of CTU led by Homeland Security chief Karen Hayes (Jayne Atkinson), forcing Bauer and his CTU loyalists to "go dark" and work independently to honor the memory of a slain friend and leader. Also figuring in are CTU's resident hacker-nerd extraordinaire, Chloe O'Brian (played to perfection by Mary Lynn Rajskub), Bauer's estranged daughter (Elisha Cuthbert), and his beloved CTU colleague Audrey Raines (Kim Raver).

Pivoting on a declaration of martial law and a mysterious cabal of unnamed conspirators, "Day 5" shocked even loyal 24 fans with a high body count including several important supporting characters. It all adds up to an exceptional season that earned Sutherland a well-deserved Emmy (for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series), equally deserving Emmy nominations for Itzin and Sharp, and an Emmy win for co-executive producer Jon Cassar's direction of the riveting season premiere. And while the breathtaking twists of 24 don't always hold up to intense scrutiny, these 24 episodes (running about 43 minutes each) are tightly written and flawlessly directed with an involving emphasis on thriller plotting and dramatic focus on the complex and operatically tragic relationship between President Logan and his traumatized wife. Add it all up, and you've got an addictive reason to look forward to season 6. --Jeff Shannon

On the DVDs
Discs 1-6 contain four episodes each, with several episodes including optional viewing of extended or alternate takes of selected scenes. A total of 12 full-length episode commentaries are provided by 24's primary cast and crew, allowing listeners a comprehensive appreciation of the series' extended "family" of talent, along with a wealth of production anecdotes, revealing observations about plotting and character, and a welcome overview of individual personalities and contributions. Disc 7 is packed with features, beginning with a season 6 prequel that offers a tantalizing glimpse of things to come, with an interrogation and escape scenario set seven months after the events of "Day 5"; by comparison, the season 6 trailer offers little more than a recap of season 5. The featurettes are all well-crafted and worth a look, beginning with a "Supporting Players" profile of 24's extended cast (including some surprising glimpses of their off-screen hobbies and activities); a detailed documentary about 24's innovative and hard-working camera crew; a profile of music composer Sean Callery, who demonstrates his versatile mood-setting techniques; a detailed exploration of the "Presidential Retreat" set with production designer Jonathan Hodges and colleagues; a "100th Episode Reel" with tightly-edited clips from seasons 1-5; and a sampling of cast and crew photos from 24: Behind the Scenes, a picture book published in November 2006. Kudos to Sparkhill Productions for continuing to provide 24 bonus features as well-made as the series itself. --Jeff Shannon

24 is clearly one of the most well written shows out there. I only started to watch 24 -Season 5 last season and I got hooked right away. During the summer break, I watched all 4 seasons of 24 and I can't believe the show is full with interesting and mesmerizing characters. The storylines are very exciting and intriguing. I must admit watching the DVDs are better for the newcomers like me. This is because you don't need to wait until the next episode. That's why you should watch all the 5 seasons on DVDs before Season 6 starts.
Season 5 is by far THE best. From the death of few well loved characters by many fans, to the dirty of politics that can easily keep you off your seat every second.So it's never too late to start watching this show.
Of course, who needs superheroes when you have Jack Bauer to save the world.

I happen to be one of 24's biggest fans. Watched a few episodes and I got hooked. I can seriously say that season 5 is the best season of 24. Season 5 has everything: romance, action and so many good plot twists and characters killed to keep you watching.

The plot of the season goes like this: someone close to Jack Bauer is killed which gets him out of hiding. As Jack progresses during the season and saves the world again, it turns out that someone inside the White House has been orchestrating everything, so Jack must bring him down.

Brilliant plot twists keep this season alive. The main villian at the end of the season was by far the most brilliant twist the writing staff has ever done. Brilliant acting by everyone, including Sutherland, who deserved his emmy this year and Gregory Itzin as the President of the United States

If you've never watched one season of 24, I urge you to watch this one, then watch all the season 1,2,3 and 4. This show deserved the emmy for best drama series this year and 24 is by far the greatest show on television and I hope it stays on the air for a good long while

24 is one of the most innovative, thrilling and acclaimed drama series on television. Each episode covers one hour of real time, and the season's entire story will take place in one day (24 hours).

Season five opened with Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) forced out of hiding and then becoming the most wanted man in America.

The story may change, new characters may arrive and leave but one thing always stays the same... the underlying story of the show is about one man's fight to do what is right.

There is a first-rate acting all around in this show. Keifer Sutherland does a marvelous job as an anti-terrorist agent.

Outstanding season! Highly recommended!

I always watch this show with my Dad, for something to do together. (We don't have many similar interests.) As someone who normally wouldn't watch the show, but who has now seen every season, I must say season 5 is by far my favourite. I don't want to spoil anything, but the reveal of the main bad guy took me completely by surprise. I also really love Martha Logan who, despite being mentally unstable, always tries to do what's right.

Basically, if you like 24, you must watch season 5.

Simply the best season! You'll enjoy all 24 hours in this season. Unfortunately, I'll stop going further with the remaining seasons to avoid disappointment.
