It took me 5 years to find it, but I am glad I did,
This review is from: 24: Season One DVD Collection [DVD] (DVD)I never understood the hype around 24. I never got to see the first episode on TV of any series, and couldn't dedicate the time to it, so never gave it a chance.
Someone recently said it was like the Bourne Identity, which I loved and the box set was very reasonably priced on amazon at the time, so I thought I would give it a go.
WOW!!!!!!!!!!!! By the second episode I was hooked. The pace keeps on going through each episode, with more twists and turns than a roller coaster. OK so some of them are a little contrived, but you forgive the show, cos it is so clever. It sucks you in, to thinking you have worked out what is going on, then it twists the other way and you have to rethink everything.
Be warned though. It will take over your life, and you will not be able to turn it off

24 is by far the best television show I've ever seen in my life. The acting is excellent, the pacing and storytelling is phenomenal. It's just purely a serial adrenaline rush! And Kiefer Sutherland's qualities give it that unique kick and flavour. I fail to see how any young male can dislike this show as it really is like a weekly Hollywood action movie and it doesn't take long to get into it as it is a tense affair! But once you do catch your breath, strap yourself in because you might be there a while. Gleefully.
So far I've found a lot of good tv shows before and after I finally got around to 24....but nothing even comes close to 24. As much as I enjoy Lost and things like that, 24 is king of the hill by some distance.
