A military hero who returns to the U.S. with a whole lot of trouble following him back. With nowhere else to turn, the man asks CTU to help him save his life while also stopping one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.
Due to a political conspiracy, an innocent man is sent to death row and his only hope is his brother, who makes it his mission to deliberately get himself sent to the same prison in order to break the both of them out, from the inside.
In this concept drama, each season takes place within one 24 hour period. Day 1: Jack Bauer is the head of field ops for an elite team of CTU agents who uncover an assassination plot targeting Presidential nominee David Palmer. Meanwhile, Jack's strained marriage to his wife, Teri, is pushed to the brink by the sudden disappearance of their troubled teenage daughter. What will the next 24 hours hold?Written by

The booming-beeping clock effect at the commercial breaks alternates between two pitches, but the pitches do not consistently match up with the even vs. odd seconds displayed. See more »
I'd like nothing more than to hang you as a traitor and watch you jerk until you die.

Each episode of the show opens with a title screen and Kiefer Sutherland's voice-over saying "The following takes place between (hour) and (hour)" However, the first season of the show had a slightly longer intro, adding "...on the day of the California Presidential Primary." In addition, various episodes have featured the "Events Occur in Real Time" title. See more »
I really enjoyed watching seasons 1, 2, and 5, the latter being my favourite for its little twist.
Although I am not completely sure that any human being could keep such a pace, it is very clever, breathe taking and all the actors are excellent.
Probably one of the greatest US series of its generation.
