In a subsequent interview, Atkinson said that her audition for the role of Martha Logan had gone well, but that Jean Smart was perfect for the part. In addition, she felt a stronger connection to her role as Karen Hayes. See more »

Superb Television
12 November 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

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!
