Editorial Reviews

Arguably the series' best season to date, season 5 of 24 literally starts with a bang and never lets up, with an intricate executive-level conspiracy to control Central Asia's oil supply. Piling crisis upon crisis in an escalating series of deceptions, twists, and deeply hidden agendas, the day-long ordeal begins with a devastating political assassination connected to a disgraced former CTU agent (Peter Weller) and a radical group of Russian separatists (led by British actor Julian Sands) threatening to release lethal nerve gas in Los Angeles to protest a U.S./Russian treaty about to be signed by President Charles Logan (Gregory Itzin). As Logan's unstable wife Martha (Jean Smart), Secret Service agent Aaron Pierce (Glenn Morshower), and chief of staff Mike Novick (Jude Ciccolella) gradually uncover the conspiracy, CTU maverick Jack Bauer (series star Kiefer Sutherland) emerges from self-imposed exile to aid his CTU colleagues in a life-threatening quest for the truth. Meanwhile, CTU chief Bill Buchanan (James Morrison) is thwarted by an inexperienced, overbearing superior (Sean Astin) and an executive takeover of CTU led by Homeland Security chief Karen Hayes (Jayne Atkinson), forcing Bauer and his CTU loyalists to "go dark" and work independently to honor the memory of a slain friend and leader. Also figuring in are CTU's resident hacker-nerd extraordinaire, Chloe O'Brian (played to perfection by Mary Lynn Rajskub), Bauer's estranged daughter (Elisha Cuthbert), and his beloved CTU colleague Audrey Raines (Kim Raver).

Pivoting on a declaration of martial law and a mysterious cabal of unnamed conspirators, "Day 5" shocked even loyal 24 fans with a high body count including several important supporting characters. It all adds up to an exceptional season that earned Sutherland a well-deserved Emmy (for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series), equally deserving Emmy nominations for Itzin and Sharp, and an Emmy win for co-executive producer Jon Cassar's direction of the riveting season premiere. And while the breathtaking twists of 24 don't always hold up to intense scrutiny, these 24 episodes (running about 43 minutes each) are tightly written and flawlessly directed with an involving emphasis on thriller plotting and dramatic focus on the complex and operatically tragic relationship between President Logan and his traumatized wife. Add it all up, and you've got an addictive reason to look forward to season 6. --Jeff Shannon

On the DVDs
Discs 1-6 contain four episodes each, with several episodes including optional viewing of extended or alternate takes of selected scenes. A total of 12 full-length episode commentaries are provided by 24's primary cast and crew, allowing listeners a comprehensive appreciation of the series' extended "family" of talent, along with a wealth of production anecdotes, revealing observations about plotting and character, and a welcome overview of individual personalities and contributions. Disc 7 is packed with features, beginning with a season 6 prequel that offers a tantalizing glimpse of things to come, with an interrogation and escape scenario set seven months after the events of "Day 5"; by comparison, the season 6 trailer offers little more than a recap of season 5. The featurettes are all well-crafted and worth a look, beginning with a "Supporting Players" profile of 24's extended cast (including some surprising glimpses of their off-screen hobbies and activities); a detailed documentary about 24's innovative and hard-working camera crew; a profile of music composer Sean Callery, who demonstrates his versatile mood-setting techniques; a detailed exploration of the "Presidential Retreat" set with production designer Jonathan Hodges and colleagues; a "100th Episode Reel" with tightly-edited clips from seasons 1-5; and a sampling of cast and crew photos from 24: Behind the Scenes, a picture book published in November 2006. Kudos to Sparkhill Productions for continuing to provide 24 bonus features as well-made as the series itself. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

Eighteen months after faking his own death, Jack Bauer is forced to return to Los Angeles when it becomes apparent that the only four people who know he is still alive are being systemically targeted for assassination. The assassinations coincide with the signing of an anti-terrorism treaty between Russia and the U.S., leading Jack to suspect a link between the assassinations, the treaty, and a group of Russian terrorists. But as events slowly unfold it becomes apparent that the day's horrific events were originally set in motion by someone within our country's own administration – an individual with the power and resources to thwart Jack's every move.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Season of the Best Show on Television October 27, 2006
By mljkb
"24" is quite simply the greatest show to appear on television in a good long while and season five is its finest hour. Five seasons in, series creators Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran continue to spring one unpredictable surprise after another, sending super agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland, by equal turns lethally charismatic and emotionally bruised) against his most formidable foes yet that include everyone and anyone from Russian Separatists, authoritarian double agents to high ranking members of the government. Fans of the season will know exactly who these baddies are, but for those unitiated, the head-spinning surprises are best left unsaid. What can be said, is that for this fifth season the crack writing staff took a good hard look at the state of geopolitics and the authoritarian neo-conservatism championed by the Bush administration and worked in a cautionary tale about oil-lust and hubris taken to extremes. Besides Sutherland, special recognition has to go to Gregory Itzin as the weak-kneed President Logan, Jean Smart as the harried first lady and Mary Lynn Rajskub as the nerdy Chole O'Brien. For the show, this season presented a tricky balancing act between the shows' signature slam-bang action scenes (there are still spectacular) and the sobering political commentary, but Surnow and Cochran nail it, making "24" a thinking man's thriller that is far smarter and far more relevant than anything else on television.

5.0 out of 5 stars Manic. Taut. Exhausting. Addictive. March 2, 2007
I miss President Palmer but President Logan is certainly the guy we love to hate. A brilliant acting job portraying such an insipid weasel.

Jean Smart is a brilliant mess in Season Five as our hearts are wrung from us for the tormented First Lady.

I am going to count Chloe O'Brien as a dependant on my tax return - she is like one of the family. Smart, tactless, sincere, and just-in-time. Besides, she is the only one who ALWAYS believes Jack.

William Devoe deserves an award for his portrayal of Secretary of Defense Heller. While no Bill Cohen, he is an earnest patriot who (usually) comes down on the right side.

I hope Michael Novak isn't Clinton's chief of staff - he is a pragmatic insider who loves being the consummate political operative.

This is an ensemble cast working as few other casts have in television history. Always at risk, never a pause, cascading crises force them to somehow work together to save the country.

Season Five is an award-winning season with a now-legendary cast - such as it is after some thinning.

5.0 out of 5 stars 24 Regains its former glory!!(spolier free review) September 12, 2006
After a disappointing 4th season, i wanted to continue watching because i owed it to the series some of the best seasons on tv ever, so i didn't get my hopes up much, i didn't even think there would be a creative attack, plot or anything...

I was dead wrong.

This season opened with an unbelievable first episode that blew me away, and the suspense stayed all way. Now, i have watched every season, i have watched alias, i have watched lost,blablabla..i have come to learn to predict and expect most of the twist and turns here and there along the plot. This time, they caught be my surprise every time. It is simply incredible! This season presents a complete new chapter for jack bauer. It regained all its glory from season 2 a few blocks back, and it kept going. Since the story is one of the main elements of the series, i will do my best not to reveal any of it

Here are just a few of the pros of this season:

A complicated plan and intentions from the bad guys pulling all the strings, totally passing the mediocre plot of "Kill americans and that's it" from season 4

A terrefic episode featuring a brief but great apperance by jack's daughter

Old and new characters mixing well together

Mind blowing plot twists that made my jaw drop to the floor.It is simply great, as you watch, the show totally transmits every feeling necessary to make these episodes keep you glued to your seat every week.

A clif hanger that leaves you wanting for the begginning of the 6th season.

Great acting from the cast, martha, jack, karen, secretary heller, everyone...

Overall, they totally deserved this emmy. The show had a message in other seasons: If things are bad, don't worry, they can always get worse (well, in the 4th season it was the opposite, but no matter).

This season is ground breaking, 5 Stars, 2 thumbs way up, outstanding. Watch it or buy it, you won't regret it

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern days' Job October 7, 2006
It seems like things cannot get worse than they are before the dawn of day 5; the tragedies and catastrophes Jack has suffered from throughout the previous seasons would have been unbearable to most human beings - but Jack endured.

Comes day 5 to demonstrate that things cannot always get better - as Jack comes back from the presumed-dead to face an immense loss and immediately continue to save a nation from formidable new enemies - foreign and domestic.

At its fifth season the show is interesting, vibrant, energetic and possibly better than previous seasons; "24" is still in its development phase - it appears that there's a lot more to do and tell in the future - and it's admirable to be able to say that about a series at the point where most other TV shows are long beyond their glory days.

The series itself and Kiefer Sutherland as its leading actor finally won the Emmy they deserved this year. It came in a good time - when TV modern days' Job and probably ultimate hero showed how to get over, move on and get the job done.

New DVD packaging - like or dislike?
I really dont like the new dvd cases because it does not fit with the rest of the 24 dvd's. Maybe if they were going to release everything in the season 5 format, it might be neat, but i havent heard anything of that. If i were to not base it on any other season, id say it looks great. But next... Read more
