5.0 out of 5 stars A great piece of TV returns in style!, 20 July 2006
This review is from: 24: Season Five DVD Collection [DVD] (DVD)
From the opening shocker, to the final denouement, the clock of 24 ticks with greater intensity than ever before as Jack Bauer's false death at the end of Season 4 is exposed by unknown parties. Soon, he is the most wanted man in America.

Like Seasons 1 and 3, there is an extremely strong 'personal' aspect to the plot, meaning that the characters are far more strongly attached to the events in motion, and wow, what an emotion it is!

Of course, having characters tied to events in a far more intricate fashion doesn't mean they will be good if the actors are awful, and thankfully the actors are in the top form that we are accustomed to in this TV series. Keifer Sutherland, as usual, rocks, Kim Raver returns as Audrey Raines, and she performs far better than in Season 4,and there are plenty of pleasing guest actors, including Sean Astin (Memphis Belle, and Lord of the Rings), and Julian Sands (Who recently appeared in Stargate SG1).

And another tradition of 24, is the shocks and twists we've come to expect (And not expect, if you know what I mean), and they are in truly great form, particularly involving a conspiracy that is throughout the whole 24 episodes in clocks and daggers. And what will we do without the action? Of course the classic gunfights and explosions are back!

At this point it is unknown what kind of extra features will appear, but doubtless they will be icing on the cake.

On the whole, if you love 24, particularly Season 1, you will enjoy the hours the Season has to offer, as it passes it's milestone 100th episode. That long ago eh?
