Product Description

Product Description

24: Season One


Such a simple idea--yet so fiendishly complex in the execution. 24, as surely everyone knows by now, is a thriller that takes places over 24 hours, midnight to midnight, in 24 one-hour episodes (well, 45-minute episodes if you subtract the commercials). Everything takes place in real time, which means no flashbacks, no flash-forwards, no handy time-dissolves. Every strand of the plot has to be dovetailed and interlocked so things happen just when they should, in the right amount of time. Not that easy.

Creator Robert Cochran and his team of writers and directors have done an impressive job of putting the jigsaw together and keeping the tension ratcheted up high, as federal agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) runs around L.A. trying to stall an assassination attempt on an African American presidential candidate and rescue his wife and daughter from the clutches of the Balkan baddies. Twists, turns, revelations, and cliffhangers are tossed at us with satisfying regularity. It's not perfect: we get some hokey plot devices (instant amnesia, anybody?); the final twist makes no sense whatsoever; there are altogether too many huggy family moments; and as for Dennis Hopper's "Serbian" accent....

Even so, this is undeniably mold-breaking TV. Sutherland, rescuing his career from the doldrums in one heroic leap, fully deserves his Golden Globe. Sets and locations are artfully deployed, and Sean Callery's score is a powerful, brooding presence. Like Murder One and The Sopranos, 24 is one of those series that future TV thrillers will be measured against. --Philip Kemp

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.

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.

Okay, let me begin by saying I love this series and I'm confident you will too. However, there are some faults with both this DVD package and the overall storyline of the first season. This, however, will not keep you from enjoying what is essentially a 24 hour movie packaged as a weekly television show.
Kiefer Sutherland stars as Jack Bauer, a federal agent for the Counter Terrorist Unit in Los Angeles. Around midnight, Jack is called into work where he meets up with fellow agents Nina Meyers (Sarah Clarke), and Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard), among others. Jack soon learns that one of his own people might be working against him in a plot to assassinate presidential hopeful David Palmer (Dennis Haysbert). As if Jack's troubles aren't enough, wife Terri (Leslie Hope) calls with news that dutiful daughter Kim (Elisha Cuthbert) has snuck out with a friend and is missing. Jack's day only gets worse from here.
24 is presented in a real-time format. Each episode represents one hour in Jack Bauer's struggle to protect Senator Palmer and his own family. Each hour is complete with surprising twists, and first-rate acting. You'll be stunned more than once.
There are a few problems with the first season that lower the rating of this set. These problems are understandable however. Initially, it looked like the show might be cancelled in the middle of the first season's run, which forced the producers to conclude some story aspects early. Then the show was picked up for a full season, and they were forced to regroup and keep the story going for more episodes. This lead to some lame twists in the middle of season one, though I won't reveal them. Of course, if you've already read the Amazon review, at least one of them has been spoiled for you (note to Amazon, great job with that by the way!).

for a long time this has been one of my favourite shows. Incredibly paced, great acting and most important, believable characters. Each season of the show is 24 episodes highlighting a continuous 24 hour span in the life of CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit) agent Jack Bauer. Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) is an emotional actor who wears his heart on his sleeve. Sure he may at times be over the top (during interrogations) but that is part of the fun in the series.

At the conclusion of each episode they usually leave you with a scenario that always makes you want to watch just one more episode...damn cliffhangers ;)

Kiefer is backed up by a great/memorable cast of characters that you'll find yourself more drawn into with each passing episode. Dennis Haysbert, Elisha Cuthbert, Carlos Bernard, Xander Berkeley to name a few. The first few seasons of 24 were something really special (before the show slowly went off rails). It easily ranks up there with Lost season 1 & 2 as some of the best hours to ever be seen on television

With the onset of reality TV, the first season of 24 breaks new ground. Keifer Sutherland is absolutely fantastic as Jack Bauer.
"24" sets the course of the day for our hero, Jack Bauer, and for a long and riotous 24 hours. The first episode begins with the beginning of Jack's day and each episodes continues with the next hour till Jack's day is concluded.
This is definitely an ambitious TV series. But, let me tell you, each episode leaves you hanging. To watch this on DVD is much better then waiting a week in between episodes. I spent one whole day watching them, fighting sleep and hunger. I thought I was crazy until I heard other people's ideas on the series. And, I realized I wasnt the only one. Unfortunately, for me, I work nights so I can't see the TV series during it's time slot. But, thankfully, the DVDs are available.
There are so many twist and turns that Jack's 24 hours become your twenty-four hours.
Seriously, this is some of the most amazing television I have ever seen. You will love this! And, not to give away the ending, it's fantastic! You will not believe it.
So, buy season one and two together so you won't be dying to find out what happens. And, if season three is as good as I have heard then go forth and buy that too when it becomes available.
Happy Watching!!!
