Crazy Credits

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 »

Alternate Versions

In the UK, the show was broadcast on BBC 2. The BBC does not run commercials during programming. Because of this, the episodes do not run in "real time". To account for this, every episode cuts out the opening line, "Events occur in real time". See more »

Everyone has bad days....
3 June 2019 | by newmediatalentSee all my reviews

Ostensibly a government procedural, bordering on a parody of the self-important histrionics of this genre, 24 tells a much simpler, yet more profound story, against a backdrop of national security with the fate of civilization (and a few political careers) on the line. 24 is about those awful days we all have, that start out bad and just keep getting worse, where nothing seems to go right until the very end, and even then it takes days (the offseason months) to recover.

Jack Bauer, an everyman with top security clearance and a federal badge, personifies the everymen and everywomen in the audience who have had days so terrible they'll never forget. His stories are our stories: betrayal by our friends and coworkers, office politics, bureaucratic nonsense, and all kinds of mishaps designed to thwart us in our fight of the good fight.
