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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.

If you are a fan of 24, you already know that it's great. If you are not or never seen 24, buy this first season and if you like this kind of action, you will be hooked.Published on Aug. 28 2009 by Josee Begin
I just love watching this TV show and I missed some of the first season, so I was glad I was able to get a copy from Amazon.caPublished on Feb. 6 2009 by Ceilidh
In retrospect, this season of 24 is one of the weaker ones. It gets its due credit for being the first however. Read morePublished on Aug. 29 2007 by Virus

The writers just went overboard on the twists and turns of this series. Maybe it work its popularity mainly from viewers seeing a segment every other week. Read morePublished on March 21 2005
