In Season 2 Episode 2, it is shown that Michelle Dessler was on the helicopter with Jack Bauer at 05:42 minutes into the episode, but it is shown later that Michelle Dessler is at CTU headquarters at around 08:30 into the episode when George Mason got off the phone with Jack who just landed the helicopter 2 minutes ago. It is not possible for Michelle Dessler to get back from the helicopter in time in any ways if the show runs on a real time schedule. See more »
What? What's Funny?
No, nothing really. It's just that, when I wanted you to pull back, just let things be, you were a shark. Now that I've asked you back. I need you to be a shark.
I can still be, whatever you need me to be.

Each episode of the show opens with a title screen and Kiefer Sutherland's voice-over saying "The following takes place between (hour) and (hour)" However, the first season of the show had a slightly longer intro, adding "...on the day of the California Presidential Primary." In addition, various episodes have featured the "Events Occur in Real Time" title. See more »
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!
