When this program originally started all of my friends said it was brilliant and that i should watch it but i wouldn't, i thought it didn't look very good and the idea of filming it in 'real time'(every episode is an hour of the day,every series is one day)wasn't a very good idea.Until recently when i flicked over to BBC 1 and it was on, i sat down and watched the first two episodes of this season and i was immediatly hooked i couldnt wait till the next week to see what happend next so i went out and bought the season on dvd and i because i was so hooked i watched all 24 episodes in 2 days! it is brilliant!!!!
The extras are also quite good as well they include an alternative ending which is quite good it also shows you a season 2 teaser ad an exclusive season 1 introduction by Kiefer Sutherland(Jack Bauer).
The season starts off at midnight on the day of the californian presidential primary, Jack Bauer (played by Kiefer Sutherland) head of the los angeles CTU,has just finished a chess game with his daughter Kimberly(Elisha Cuthbert). But the cozy family moment is shattered when Kimberly disappears out of her bedroom window.Before Jack can go look for her he is called in to the office to deal with a sudden emergency,leaving his wife Teri(Leslie Hope) to track down thier daughter.The night only gets worse when Jack learns an assasination attempt will be made on presidential candidate senator Palmer(Dennis Haysbert)within the next 24 hours.As Jack and his team rush to discover who is behind the assasination attempt.Teri tries to locate Kimberly-whose night of partying has suddenly turned into a struggle for her very survival!!
Because of the great story line and how every episode leaves you wanting more i would reccomend 24 season 1 to anybody.
Hope this review helps!!
