Did You Know?


The series was originally titled 24 Hours. Presumably, the Hours was dropped to avoid confusion with that news mag on CBS. See more »


The 747 that explodes over the Mojave Desert is stated to have flown direct from Berlin, where the assassin is supposed to have been hired. Berlin doesn't have an international airport, and won't until the new Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport is completed around 2010. The Schoenfeld, Tegel and Tempelhof airports that currently serve Berlin cannot accommodate a 747, and any flight from Berlin to the U.S. would have to connect from Frankfurt or Munich. See more »


Kimberly Bauer: So, is she still giving you the cold shoulder?
Jack Bauer: If by "she" you're referring to your mother, I'd appreciate if you called her by her name. Mom. And no, she's just busy.
Kimberly Bauer: She's busy a lot.

Warning!! Riveting and Incredibly Addicting!!!
24 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was never a big fan of television until I watched 24 for the first time. I got into the series very late. Season 5 ended before I even saw my very first episode. It was an episode of Series 3 that was on my parents DVR (digital video recorder) box while I was house sitting for the weekend. It took that one episode for me to be hook line and sinker into the world of Jack Bauer. And boy was I hooked!! I watched the next six episodes without blinking an eye. The next day I went to Blockbuster and signed up for an unlimited month pass for twenty something dollars and needless to say it has been the greatest blockbuster money I've ever spent. I watched the first three seasons in three weeks. That's 72 forty minute episodes!!! I will say that finding out what happens next is easier on DVD than waiting an entire week. I can only imagine the anticipation of watching Season 6 week to week!! I find it mildly torturous and cruel but I'm going to give it a try and watch it just like the rest of America!! The DVR is set and you can bet I'll be chomping at the bit!!
