A creative and revolutionary television program that could best be described
as "High Noon" for the 21st Century X and Y generational groups starved for
cinema-like ideas and executions. "24" (representing the number of hours in
a day) runs an hour a week, in real time, and advances to a staggering
climax as an anti-terrorist specialist (Kiefer Sutherland) races against the
clock to save the day. Assassination attempts, germ warfare and
anti-American enemies are constant obstacles for Sutherland, daughter Elisha
Cuthbert, president Dennis Haysbert and an innumerable cast of others.
Regulars come and go, guest stars make lasting impressions and cliff-hanger
sequences will leave you gasping for air and possibly grasping your chest to
calm your heart down. So many things happen over the course of one day on
this show (you would not believe everything that goes on over such a short
period of time) that it is sometimes hard to remember everything and at
times many situations are trivial anyway (there is so much time to fill that
it is near impossible to make every minute count). Sutherland and Haysbert
(who made their names on the big screen) are top-flight performers and they
prove to be the biggest assets. Excellent direction and good scripts (for
the most part) have lingering effects on the audience as the clock ticks and
tocks to a mind-numbing finale each season. 4.5 out of 5
