| One of the best series ever made for television
24 is a great TV series. It's design and story lines are really a thrill to experience. The day out of the life of agent Jack Bauer is one of a kind. The series plays in real time (including the commercial breaks).

I can certainly recommend to watch this series. It's even more fantastic, if you not watch it as it's aired, but record some episodes and then watch them in in a pattern of 2 per evening for some days after another. In this way you find yourself addicted to the adrenaline which 24 unleashes.

This is TV as it was designed. I must admit that I look forward to the movie which is planned. I hope not that it's a normal movie, but that they put elements of the real time (or something similar) into it. At least the thrill should be similar.

I just finished Day 6 (season 6) and now have to rehab from my 24 addiction again.

Quotes

Jack Bauer: The only reason that you're conscious right now is because I don't want to carry you.


Goofs

Many times in the series, the next episode starts at a point where not enough time has passed for something to have happened. For example, when Kim and her boyfriend are arrested by one cop and are have to lie down on the ground with their hands behind their head and then we see the clock beep for the usual 3 seconds into the next hour. Then the next episode begins, with several cops arrived at the scene, Kim being questioned by officers, sitting down, wearing a blanket. All of this could have not have happened in just 3 seconds. This happens several times throughout the series.


Crazy Credits

For some of the narrated introductions, Kiefer Sutherland adds "My name is Jack Bauer and (today/this) the longest day of my life."


Alternate Versions

UK version of episode 2.6 was edited to remove some dialogue about a terrorist recruitment center. Original dialogue is: "You ever hear of the Finsbury Park mosque? It's considered to be one of the main recruitment centers for Islamic terrorists in the west. Our main targets are European Muslims with Western education, passports and the potential to blend into Western society. And do you know, where that mosque is located? Your hometown, London. So tell me Reza, how is my racial profiling going now?" This was changed to: "Our main targets are European Muslims with Western education, passports and the potential to blend into Western society. So tell me Reza, how is my racial profiling going now?"
