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
After the show had become wildly popular, a tag line in reference to the main character circulated among viewers; "How many lives does Jack have?" (Stemming from the extreme circumstances that Jack faced each day.) In Speed (1994), Joe Morton's character Lt. McMahon asked the same question of the main character Jack Traven. See more »

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 »
The premieres of season 2 and 3 originally aired commercial-free and were about 52 minutes long. There are also 44 minute versions for syndication that have had several scenes edited out. See more »
What i found amazing is how can anyone criticize 24 ... The actors are not boring, they all have their own role on the show. Each season speaks about a terrorist problem, and what's the problem? do they look so much alike? no! If you start to watch a episode with all the suspense and REALLY GREAT action, you'll keep sit on the couch till it's end! Watching 24 won't make you smarter or add anything new to your brains, but will definitely entertain you more than any other TV show for 43minutes and you'll pray till next Monday arrives! If you expect a drama, or worst, a similar show to any of those recent movies such as "body of lies", you can turn your head to the other side, 24 only offers what best the TV got, the pleasure of be inside the screen..
It's a perfect 10 in 10 for 24 and Jack Bauer!
