The Most Addictive Programme To Hit Televsision ... Ever,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 24: Season Three DVD Collection [DVD] (DVD)
24 is currently the most original piece of television I have ever seen. It has so much suspense and drama that it will leave you at the edge of your seat from the moment the clock starts ticking until the final episode! For those who have not seen this series, 24 is a programme that moves in real-time (i.e. one hour in the show equates to the hour you are watching it in, although it is actually 45 minutes as it has to allow for commercial breaks in the States)following the life of Jack Bauer, an agent trained in field operations and working for CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit)as well as the loyal and honest President David Palmer. At the end of each episode, you are left wanting to watch the next one and then the next one and then the next one and so on! In this third season of the series, it follows Jack Bauer as he tries to foil the release of a deadly virus into American society by terrorists, as Palmer tries to win re-election in office for a second term. From what I have seen of this series ( I am on episode 20 ), it has superseded season 2 and is definitely on a par with season 1. If you have never seen 24 before, you have to check it out as this is something you will definitely not regret experiencing. However, if you want the true 24 experience, watch 24 from season 1, as it will provide a richer experience of this amazing programme. Do not blame me though if you do not sleep for 24 hours after watching all 24 episodes in one go due to the sheer addiction and adrenaline pumping episodes that is 24. 24 has set a new standard and raised the bar in innovative television drama and it will be hard to beat!
