Superb Television
I didn't watch "24" during its original, first-season run, so I can't comment on how it played, week after week; but, I did watch all 24 episodes on DVD, over a four day period. WOW! From beginning to end, this show is the most riveting and suspenseful thing ever captured on film. It is a masterwork of deceit, and its success is in the fact that it never allows the viewer to relax for a second. You are never sure who you can trust. Certainly one of, if not the best 24 hours of television, ever! Highly recommended!

Trivia

In season three, it's revealed that Jack received an intricate tattoo on the inside of his left forearm as part of his previous deep-cover operation with the Salazar brothers. Instead of spending several hours in the make-up chair on days when the tattoo needed to be shown, Kiefer Sutherland opted instead simply to get the actual tattoo.


Quotes

Jack Bauer: This will help you with the pain.


Goofs

Many times Jack and others are seen stealing a car by quickly reaching under the dashboard to yank down some wires and intermittently sparking them together to make the engine start. This is impossible on many levels. Beginning in the mid nineties with the introduction of 2nd generation on board diagnostics (OBD II) all cars have theft protection that requires electronic input from the key or the computer will either shut down the fuel injection or not allow the starter motor to engage. Only a manufacturer's program (or a black market version) through the scan tool connector could bypass this. On an older car you would still have to remove the panel below the steering column (several screws) and even then the wires from the key lock and other controls are tightly molded together in bundles requiring a razor knife to separate and strip them. You would then have to connect constant power to the ignition (distributor or coil pack) and then hold the wire to the starter motor together with power for the entire time the engine needs to crank to start until releasing it, not just arcing it a couple of times.


Crazy Credits

For the season finale of the first season, and many episodes in the following seasons, a warning for graphic violence was added.


Alternate Versions

The version of '24' that was shown on BBC2 in the UK had roughly a minute of added footage missing from the U.S release. The small extensions take place in the last 5 episodes and contain such as Terri telling Nina that she is pregnant and Jack Bauer reloading his guns at the pier shootout.
