In this concept drama, each season takes place within one 24 hour period. Day 1: Jack Bauer is the head of field ops for an elite team of CTU agents who uncover an assassination plot targeting Presidential nominee David Palmer. 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
The Season 6 plotline involving hostiles taking over CTU headquarters and Jack's nephew eluding them by crawling through air ducts almost exactly parallels a plotline from 24: The Game (2006), except that in the game it was Jack's daughter Kim eluding the terrorists. See more »

Ryan, is there anyone you'd like to talk to?
To say goodbye?
To say whatever you have to.
I have a brother I haven't talked to in years... I don't have that many friends, only the people I work with. So, no... there's no-one.

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