Jack Bauer saved the president during the events of Day 1, and his name is mentioned in news everywhere. There should be a high probability that his pictures are released somewhere on the internet or news too, meaning it's not possible to keep his other covers intact like those in Season 2. See more »

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+++
