Goofs

In Season 2 Episode 2, it is shown that Michelle Dessler was on the helicopter with Jack Bauer at 05:42 minutes into the episode, but it is shown later that Michelle Dessler is at CTU headquarters at around 08:30 into the episode when George Mason got off the phone with Jack who just landed the helicopter 2 minutes ago. It is not possible for Michelle Dessler to get back from the helicopter in time in any ways if the show runs on a real time schedule. See more »

A Bona-Fied TV Classic!
12 May 2002 | by (Iowa City, IA) – See all my reviews

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+++
