Advantages: Great acting, great storyline, lots of twists, non-stop action
Disadvantages: Poor performance by Elisha Cuthbert (Kim Bauer) and the season has a very slow start
24 is the fantastic action-thriller TV show from Fox about a government department called CTU - the Counter Terrorist Unit. Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), who is director of CTU finds himself in a catch-22 position when terrorists kidnap his daughter and threaten to harm her unless he kills Senator David Palmer, who's running in the election to become the first black president of the United States (this was written before Obama's time).
Whilst a little slow in the opening episodes, 24 is a brilliant nail-biting ride, as twist follows twist follows even more unforeseeable twists. Kiefer Sutherland and co put on a spectacular performance of acting, and Scott Callery provides a chilling soundtrack.
A great start to a long running series, with some great performances and enough drama to encapture the hearts of the audience right up to the adrenaline pumped finale. Can Jack save his family and the world in just 24 hours?
Summary: Good start to arguably one of the greatest TV drama series of this century. Highly recommended.
