This DVD set is one of the most anticipated of 2004. Featuring seasons 1 - 3 of the hit BBC/Sky One Show, 24! All 3 seasons have won numerous awards including Emmy for Best Drama and Best Actor (K. Sutherland).
SEASON 1 - This DVD set was dissapointing although the actual series was in my opinion the best so far! The DVD features a season 2 preview, an alternate ending and timeline book with pictures. Synopsis - Government agent Jack Bower is about to live the longest day of his life. He is working with a spy, his wife and daughter have been kidnapped and terrorists are trying to kill the a presidential candiate.
SEASON 2 - This is a great DVD set. Features 7 discs with 1 disc of extras. Features over 40 deleted and extended footage, 3 amazing documentaries, commentary on almost every episode and again a timeline book with pictures. Synopsis - Jack is back and has to work with past mistakes as terrorists plan to explode a nuclear bomb over LA. New faces join CTU as things get a lot more dirty.
SEASON 3 - The features for this DVD have not been confirmed as of yet, but it is a 7 disc set so expect deleted and extended scenes, behind the scenes footage, a timeline book, commentary and rumoured interviews with the cast and a series of 5 special internet only q and a shows with the cast and producers. By far, the darkest series yet. Synopsis - Jack is back once again with even more new faces joining CTU. This time, terrorists plan to release a deadly virus into LA and Jack and his team have to stop it. There's one problem, to do it Jack needs to go undercover, lie to the President and his team, become a drug taker and most of all, once again, rely on old faces for help. This series was my joint second favourite becuase while it didn't have the same action as it did in season 1 or 2, it was full of suprises and a lot more suspence.
Keifer Sutherland stars as Jack Bower and Elisha Cuthbert as Kim Bower. Also staring Sarah Clarke as Nina Myers, Leslie Hope as Teri Bower, Karina Arroyave as Jamry Farrel,Sarah Wynter as Kate Warner, Carlos Bernard as Tony Almeida, Xander Berkley as George Mason, Sarah Gilbert as Paula SchaefferPenny Johnson Jerald as Sherry Palmer, Dennis Haysbert as President David Palmer, Reiko Aylseworth as Michelle Dessler, James Badge Dale as Chase Edmunds and a cast of hundreds more.
Acting from all the cast is A standard especially Elisha Cuthbert (Girl Next Door) and Sarah Clarke.
24 is gripping drama at its best a must for anyone. Your DVD collection would be naked without it.
