I was glued to my TV set from DVD #1 to DVD #6. Non-stop, interesting and riveting plot. The best drama series I have ever seen. Great cast too.

Being the typical television cynic, I read the advance reviews of 24 and seemed intrigued by the premise of one 24 hour period shown in real time, but decided there was no way Fox would keep it all year. I didn't want to waste my time starting a show that would never have a conclusion. I was wrong.
I never watched season one on TV, but I became hooked on season two. Wanting to know the back-story of all the characters' pasts, I bought this DVD set. Watching this season and knowing going in what happens to some of the characters (I won't spoil the plot twists they way our friends at Amazon have done) can sometimes be bad, but I will say that I watched Nina's actions with an eye I wouldn't have if I had not seen season two first.
I had the opportunity to watch this DVD set in large gulps, three to four episodes at a time - I was in Germany on business and with no English TV to watch, the DVD sets I brought gave me something to watch on my laptop. Watching the show this way is very satisfying. There's no waiting for next week to see how things turn out...just click on the next episode.
I was never a big fan of Kiefer Sutherland, but after watching his range of range of emotions dealing with all that is going on to him as a professional with a job to do, as a father of a teenager, and as a husband trying to repair a damaged marriage, I'm impressed. He really makes you feel his emotions. You get the feeling you know Jack and want to see him make it out of this in one piece.
Another reviewer mentioned this show is the story of three families, The Bauers, the Palmers, and the Drazens. I agree completely and will not rehash their thoughts, but I would like to add another family, the one at CTU.

The 24 concept was a risky one. It was a show that, as likely as to become a hit, was likely to be an utter failure. It took great writing, fantastic directing and brilliant editing to make this strictly real-time show exciting enough to work; and though the concept began to fail in the following (still excellent) seasons, in the first one the real-time rule is very strict indeed. Each episode takes precisely one hour (including commercials); the event occurring in each episode take precisely an hour in the reality of the show. By keeping a steady rhythm of non-stop action and suspense, as well as truly surprising plot-twists, and top-notch editing which uses excellent and original technique (split screens, showing different events occurring in different places at the same time), 24 is one of the most suspenseful, exciting programs seen on television.
Risky, I say, not only because of the real-time concept, but also because it is absolutely essential to watch every episode of the season to truly appreciate it. It's very difficult to make the viewers interested enough to watch every single episode. That is why most series give more weight to each episode as a whole, rather than an entire season; in 24, the whole is much, much more than the sum of its parts. Each season of 24 functions as a complete work, more like a 24 hour movie than a TV series. In that aspect, it may be the most impressive product of American television since the first season of Twin Peaks (the one directed by David Lynch). That is why, like Twin Peaks, 24's first season is well worth owning on DVD. I actually know many people who, seeing only some of the episodes while it was aired on TV, were not too interested, but became hooked when they saw it from the beginning on DVD.

Season 1 of 24 stars Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer. Jack Bauer works in the Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) based out of Los Angeles California. He puts his all into his job and ends up juggling the demands of protecting Senator David Palmer and his family from being assassinated (Senator David Palmer is played by Dennis Haysbert also known as the Allstate Insurance guy) and looking after his daughter Kim. Kim ran away when Jack Bauer and his wife Teri were about to talk to Kimberly about a personal family issue. Things get even more complicated when Jack Bauer learns that there is a mole within his own agency and his daughter Kim and her friend Janet have been kidnapped. Of course, there is so much more to 24 than what I just listed an Season 1 of the 24 series definitely keeps a person in suspense. There is even information online about certain key addresses such as for 2350 Dunlop Plaza in Los Angeles California to be an office building location for the hour sequence of 1-2 am in the 24 tv series of season 1 (listed via online wikia).

Kiefer Sutherland stars as Jack Bauer, a counter-terrorist government agent. In one, very long day, he will see his family kidnapped, be involved in the assassination of a presidential candidate, and uncover a spy among his colleagues.

This series will take your breath away. Jack faces certain death every 15 minutes in a series of jaw-dropping scenarios that are both exhausting and exhilarating to watch. Production values are high, with frequent split screens following several subplots, music that enhances the terrifying story, and acting from a top-notch cast.

Sutherland is absolutely convincing as the fearless and endlessly-resourceful agent. He fills the screen with his charismatic presence and gives a riveting performance. Dennis Haysbert is perfect as the noble presidential candidate who must cope with public enemies and domestic disasters. And Sarah Clarke is unforgettable as Jack's ex-flame.

With a stellar supporting cast and spine-chilling script, this is a must-see dramatic series.
