Meanwhile, Jack's strained marriage to his wife, Teri, is pushed to the brink by the sudden disappearance of their troubled teenage daughter. What will the next 24 hours hold? Written by
Jack was only an official CTU employee for 3 of the 8 seasons; in season one as the CTU Director, in season 2 his credentials are reinstated after being "inactive" for 18 months and in Season 3 as Director of Field Ops. During each of the other seasons, he was "contracted" as a freelance and given temporary clearance; in season 4 he asks Erin Driscoll to reinstate him on a provisional basis. (With the exception of season 7, as CTU had been disbanded) 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+++
