1.0 out of 5 stars A BAD SOAP-OPERA WITH BITS OF ACTION, 5 Feb 2005
This review is from: 24: Season One DVD Collection [DVD] (DVD)
I am surprised how many people like 24. I actually found it very DISAPOINTING. The show supposedly describes events happening in real time which seems to be a major drawback on its own. There are actually NO events. 80% of each episode comprises of people holding phones talking to each other and of soap-opera like pointless lengthy dialogues suitable only for below average IQ people and not for senators and high ranked CIA (or CTU, whatever) officials. Add some very poor performances (Sutherland most of the time and for no particular reason is whispering instead of talking which is very annoying) plus the fact that every relationship among the characters even if it starts with a mutual dislike it ends up ideal and super-friendly and you get a very bad show with a highly predictable plot giving you boredom instead of excitement and often making you laugh with its stupidity and its pretentious gravity.
