Many of the agents (not including Jack, who carries a H&K type pistol most of the time) carry Glock manufactured pistols which do not have external safeties or hammers but throughout the series, you can hear them either cocking a hammer back or dis-engaging a safety. See more »
Remember that time we came into work together about a month ago? Mason made some wisecrack remark, and you came up with this really great BS story, early breakfast meeting with District 3. I was really impressed with how convincing a liar you were.

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 »
This show definitely has re-written the book on intelligent and credible suspense on TV. Extremely well acted, written and directed. Truly gripping, heart-stopping suspense from one hour to the next. The show is so well done that you can easily forgive the very few plot devices that seem a little weak. When a show gets 99% of everything right, it's very hard to quibble. Keifer Sutherland has never been better as the flawed hero. "24" deserves to be a model on which all future TV suspense thrillers can be compared to. A+++
