5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning series, 23 Aug. 2006
This review is from: 24: Season Five DVD Collection [DVD] (DVD)
Before this series of 24, I didn't believe that the programme makers could bring us another series on a par with Series 1, or even anywhere close to it. This series blew that theory out of the water.

Quite simply, it is unbelievable. The explosive opener is mentioned as one of the strong points of the series, but it is really eclipsed in my eyes by the fantastic level maintained throughout all 24 episodes.

The characters and character development is an essential aspect of the show's success this year. There are now characters you genuinely care about, truly despise or even feel sorrow at their respective demises. And Christopher Henderson is the greatest character creation in the show since Nina Myers.

And then there's that 3 or 4 episode run round about middle of the series that is by far my favourite storyline in 24 history - so dramatic and emotional at the same time. One of those particular episode is among the greatest achievements of TV drama that I have ever seen: my jaw was open for the entire hour and I actually must have cried at least twice (which is remarkable for me).

Don't have any hesitations about whether or not to buy this series. Make sure that you have seen the previous 4, then order your copy and enjoy.
