Trivia

In season 3, it's revealed that Jack received an intricate tattoo on the inside of his left forearm as part of his previous deep-cover operation with the Salazar brothers. Instead of spending hours in the makeup chair on days when the tattoo needed to be shown, Kiefer Sutherland opted instead simply to get the actual tattoo. See more »

Goofs

In many episodes in season one, you can see cameras on stands and men walking carrying them, such as when Nina is in the abandoned building in the construction site. Or when Jack is walking through the basement of the building where Senator Palmer is holding his breakfast meeting. See more »

Quotes

Kalil Hasan: I think someone is anxious that I get to where I'm going.
Omar: What makes you think that?
Kalil Hasan: I just got stopped by two cops who let me go in very little time.
Omar: And?
Kalil Hasan: This is a stolen car.
Omar: Maybe the driver has not reported it yet?
Kalil Hasan: A cop was approaching me with his hand on his gun. He gets a call: suddenly there's no problem.
[Omar grimaces as he realises Kalil is right]

10/10 always!
17 February 2009 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

What i found amazing is how can anyone criticize 24 ... The actors are not boring, they all have their own role on the show. Each season speaks about a terrorist problem, and what's the problem? do they look so much alike? no! If you start to watch a episode with all the suspense and REALLY GREAT action, you'll keep sit on the couch till it's end! Watching 24 won't make you smarter or add anything new to your brains, but will definitely entertain you more than any other TV show for 43minutes and you'll pray till next Monday arrives! If you expect a drama, or worst, a similar show to any of those recent movies such as "body of lies", you can turn your head to the other side, 24 only offers what best the TV got, the pleasure of be inside the screen..

It's a perfect 10 in 10 for 24 and Jack Bauer!
