24 - 24 hours to save the world



24 when it first came out won a lot of awards for being an amazing show. It was unlike anything that was made before it. People were amazed at just how good of a show it was.

The show is based around real time. In other words, there are 24 episodes that cover just one day in the life of Jack Bauer.

24 is based around terrorist threats. Jack Bauer is a part of a special covert team who go and take out threats like these. Jack is the best in the business and he has just 24 hours to save the world. The shows are really amazing. It can sound kind of corny when I mention he has 24 hours to save the world, but the truth is the show is actually great.

It ran for 8 seasons on Fox. It would not have ran that long if it was not a good show. The show has quite a bit of violence and was toned down in later seasons because of this. The fans got upset over toning down the violence but honestly it was played off well.

The show plays out in real time which was what set it apart in the first place. Of course the commercials means that a whole seasons is not quite 24 hours. The show is actually believable in many areas so it does not feel too fake. In a lot of shows the action feels fake and so you get bored with it.

Even though each season is based on a different terrorist threat, there is continuity. Jack of course is in every episode and so he is a regular character on the show. Other characters from the special anti terrorism unit are also in each of the seasons.

Verdict

If you like a real and true action hero type show then you will love 24. The action and suspense are cutting edge. This is a show that will still be great for many years to come even though it is no longer being produced.

Summary: Groundbreaking
Review: Review: 24 24 is perhaps the most innovative thriller in some time. 24 is a remarkably well made series about Jack Bauer, Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) key figure, and his fight against terrorism. Each episode depicts the last hour of his life, or better said 42 minutes because there is some space left for commercials, and each season depicts only one day of his tumultuous life. The clock you will notice counts the hours and minutes Jack spends fighting against terrorists, always in a truly tight situation where tough decisions need to be made in only few minutes. The clock also accounts for the minutes allocated for the commercial purposes, and this gives the series even more authenticity. When you think that the season practically depicts only one day, you might think that it is a dull, boring series. However, 24 is the exact opposite. This is one adrenaline packed, continuous action series and the main character Jack Bauer is fantastic. He is a veteran member of CTU and a true patriot willing to sacrifice his life in order to save others and always ready to answer severe national security threats. The only thing he won’t jeopardize, and keep in mind that he is willing even to kill a friend in order to stop terrorist from killing innocents, is his daughter Kim (Elisha Cuthbert), herself future CTU member. I don’t want to talk about the story too much because it would be a spoil, suffice to say that in every season Jack must handle critical situations and ultimately save the world from nuclear catastrophes and so on. Kiefer Sutherland is perfect for this role, and his career took a nice turn with this much acclaimed series. Verdict: Die Hard fans and action series seekers should watch 24 right-away. If you don’t mind a few clichés here and there and some cheap sentimentalism on some occasions, the by all means go for this incredibly fun and fast paced action series. You won’t be disappointed.
