5.0 out of 5 stars Addiction at its best, 9 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 24 - Season 1-8 and Redemption [DVD] (DVD)
This set is presented in a slipcase with 10 normal sized DVD cases. The first 8 contain 6 DVDs for each season. Box 9 contains 6 bonus discs (Seasons 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8) The final box contains the single DVD edition of Redemption.
(I thought they might have included the Extended 2-Disc Collector's Edition here, but not so).

For the uninitiated 24 is the most addictive TV series ever shown, it only slows down in season 6 momentarily and then back up to full speed in season 7, my personal favourite. (Redemption is a prequel to season 7)
24 follow's the events of a day in the life of Agent Jack Bauer (played by Kiefer Sutherland) in real time.

24 is an extremely well produced series with a great cast and guest appearances. It is the perfect vehicle for Kiefer Sutherland's talent. 24 is the only TV series I have managed to watch completely from start to finish. I have previously owned 24 - Complete Seasons 1-6 [DVD] [2001] now that this set has been delivered I intend to watch everthing again from start to finish.

As far fetched as 24 can seem at times, its not to far removed from reality in America. I want to be on Jack Bauers side

Can you tell me what's on the bonus disc for season 8? Since the separate season doesn't have a bonus disc and just 6 discs...

Or maybe post a picture of the box and its insides?

Thank you very much...

Excellent review, just the kind of review for Amazon. I'm a big fan of 24, i have the first 6 seasons and the CE of Redemption, haven't bought the other seasons yet because i thought i'd wait until a great collection comes out, gives me some new discs to view. It's a shame about the 2-disc version of Redemption, Fox could've given it, but at least they gave the broadcast version which is all that matters.

Great review!

Can you tell me what subs are available per season? I really love the show and I want to buy the box, but Im Dutch and subs would be a real asset to me. Otherwise I will wait for the box to come out in Holland...Thanks in advance!

Hi,
I hope someone can help me.
Is there only English on the session?

Thanks for answers

Weskerfan says:
The UK Box has only the english language version, additionally dutch subtitles

In reply to an earlier post on 25 Dec 2010 02:48:57 GMT
Im still not sure about this. The last answer says "english language". EVERY season and Redemption have english subtitles?

Thanks a lot!!

Weskerfan says:
Hi! Every Season and Redemption have english subtitles for the hearing impaired, but no 'plain' subtitles.

I'd just like to take a moment and give credit to the reviewer here as this is how you're supposed to review DVD & Blu-ray if you're not going to do a scores breakdown....run down of the show itself, run down of the physical packaging and/or extras that come with it. Most people from what I see here tend to just wax lyrical about the items either they love it or they hate it but I rarely see a deconstruction or description of the said item especially for dvd & blu ray. So job well done to this reviewer imo.
