Due to a political conspiracy, an innocent man is sent to death row and his only hope is his brother, who makes it his mission to deliberately get himself sent to the same prison in order to break the both of them out, from the inside.
A military hero who returns to the U.S. with a whole lot of trouble following him back. With nowhere else to turn, the man asks CTU to help him save his life while also stopping one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.
In this concept drama, each season takes place within one 24 hour period. Day 1: Jack Bauer is the head of field ops for an elite team of CTU agents who uncover an assassination plot targeting Presidential nominee David Palmer. Meanwhile, Jack's strained marriage to his wife, Teri, is pushed to the brink by the sudden disappearance of their troubled teenage daughter. What will the next 24 hours hold?Written by
When the series was continued after the success of the first season, there were plans to abandon the real-time format, and resume with more conventional episode formats (i.e. cutting out time periods and making episodes more stand-alone). However, several series prominents, including main star Kiefer Sutherland, successfully pleaded to keep the real-time format. See more »
Many times in the series, the next episode starts at a point where not enough time has passed for something to have happened. For example, when Kim and her boyfriend are arrested by one cop and are have to lie down on the ground with their hands behind their head and then we see the clock beep for the usual 3 seconds into the next hour. Then the next episode begins, with several cops arrived at the scene, Kim being questioned by officers, sitting down, wearing a blanket. All of this could have not have happened in just 3 seconds. This happens several times throughout the series. See more »
This show is why America is the most hated country in the world
Alright, so Americans are obsessed with the end of the world and their own annihilation. This leads them to be overly aggressive when dealing with any situation. This show does nothing but make them feel like there's something to be afraid of, something that needs to be either shot or blown up. I guarantee this show is responsible for some very bad treatment of middle eastern civilians, cause they are of course the enemy. so as far as his show goes, its not only bad, its not only poorly acted, poorly written and poorly shot, its also a shining example of just how simple minded people are, if you're reading this thinking to yourself how good this show actually is, then take a gun, shove it up your own ass and pull the trigger, cause morons like you should just go away and let the rest of us live in our normal, non terror filled world, because to let you in on a little secret, the taliban was created by the U.S government and chances are you will never be killed by a terrorist
