Trivia

The writers put in Tony's ankle injury during the fight with Jack because in real life Carlos Bernard injured his ankle. If you look carefully you can see Bernard limping slightly in earlier scenes before the on-screen fight gets his character's injury matched with the actor's injury. Bernard stated in an interview that the writers planned for the fight between Jack and Tony to be more elaborate and longer, but they had to cut it down when he was injured. See more »

The quest for the truth begins
14 June 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

The premise of Season 1 (the attempt on David Palmer's life) occupied only eight episodes, with the remaining sixteen devoted to dealing with whoever organized the threat. Day 2 follows the same pattern, but reverses the proportion, since the nuclear bomb is out of the way only now, with nine more episodes to go.

With the nuke out of the picture, Jack returns to CTU where Tony has been appointed director, which means the man who secretly helped him in Day 1 is likely to become an annoying bureaucrat now. In fact, Tony insists everything be done by the book, especially since a recording found in Syed Ali's apartment indicates he was backed by three Middle Eastern countries and effectively closes the case. Or at least it would, weren't it for Ali's claim that the conversation featured in the recording never took place. Jack and Michelle (Reiko Aylesworth) believe him, but have a hard time convincing Tony and President Palmer. Ali being taken out by a sniper doesn't help that much either.

Whereas other drama shows, like The Sopranos, have calm moments after particularly eventful episodes, 24 can't, by its nature, stop for one second. Major explosion that killed a recurring character? No problem, it can be followed by an assassination that casts doubt on everything that has happened so far. That's the beauty of this series: it never allows you to take it easy.
