Such a simple idea--yet so fiendishly complex in the execution. 24, as surely everyone knows by now, is a thriller that takes places over 24 hours, midnight to midnight, in 24 one-hour episodes (well, 45-minute episodes if you subtract the commercials). Everything takes place in real time, which means no flashbacks, no flash-forwards, no handy time-dissolves. Every strand of the plot has to be dovetailed and interlocked so things happen just when they should, in the right amount of time. Not that easy. Creator Robert Cochran and his team of writers and directors have done an impressive job of putting the jigsaw together and keeping the tension ratcheted up high, as federal agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) runs around L.A. trying to stall an assassination attempt on an African American presidential candidate and rescue his wife and daughter from the clutches of the Balkan bad guys.

In the second season, Jack is no longer on the government payroll; unfortunately for him, this small fact doesn't seem to matter to the president and the NSA, who call him back in to the CTU and give him 24 hours to infiltrate a terrorist organization that is planning to detonate a dirty bomb in the city of angels. Fans of the original won't be disappointed, as there are more than enough shock moments in the first few hours to hint at the climactic build-up to come, while newcomers can quickly get involved in the lives of Jack and his family.

In the third season--three years after the events of "Day Two"--a vengeful terrorist threatens to release a lethal virus that could wipe out much of the country's population. Jack attempts to broker a deal for the virus involving a drug kingpin, setting the 24-hour clock ticking in a tight, action-packed plot involving a potential traitor in CTU's midst. The intricately woven subplots that are 24's greatest strength are masterfully developed here, and character arcs are equally strong. It's 24's superior casting that overcomes the series' occasional lapses in credibility, and season 3's twists make marathon viewing a nerve-wracking delight. As always, Sutherland anchors the series in the role he was born to play.

As a retiree living on a fixed income, I thought long and hard about spending the money for all three seasons of 24. But when I looked at the product details, I realized I would be getting 72 episodes on 20 discs for about 120 bucks. That is only about $1.75 per one-hour episode. That's a fantastic deal for the most exciting, thrill-packed adrenalin rush possible on television. You can't come close to that much entertainment even by renting the DVDs, or what it would cost in monthly cable or satellite fees. I give this a five-star rating not only for the content, but for the deal.

"24" is one of the only primetime TV dramas I hold in high regard. For three whole seasons, and currently working on its fourth, "24" has met my criteria in what I would consider a high quality TV drama. However, it has also surpassed my expectations especially in the areas of suspense and predictability. The show centers itself around the character Jack Bauer, a CTU(Counter Terrorist Unit) Agent, whose job is to protect the United States from any Internal or External Terrorist Attack. The show takes you over the course of a single day (one episode covers one hour of that one particular day) in which Jack has to face a certain threat to national security. For the past three seasons, Jack has already faced the threat of assasination of a presidential candidate(season 1), threat of a nuclear attack on U.S. soil(season 2), and the threat of a nationwide biological attack(season 3). Kiefer Sutherland plays the role of Jack Bauer and does an awesome job in portraying the harsh, cold and relentless personality that Jack is given. But what really gives the show its edge is the level of suspense it has and how each separate event weaves itself into the personal life of Jack. And the show is extremely unpredictable because of the way it manipulates the characters to take on different roles, and who you thought would be the good guy, actually turns out to be the enemy. Sometimes you won't see what's coming until you've seen it all from beginning to end. So if you want suspense, and if you want action, I highly recommend "24".

I only started watching 24 during the 4th series - so I never saw series 1-3. What an absolute treat these DVD's are! Many have already explained the you get something like 18 hours of solid viewing PER SERIES! - That's over 50 hours for the package. But here's the thing... it's totally addictive. I'm sorry, but I watched this thing almost back to back - it's just very powerful stuff. I'm a 24 junkie now... Shoot me... send me to rehab... Definitely the best value for money you could ever wish for and an amazing gift if you want to give something special - something really special. Series like Sopranos and Wire and stuff like that look very poor in comparison... and believe me, I'm a big fan of those too. 3 seasons of 24 for 100 bucks or so is just a no brainer... DO IT!

Where to start... I started watching 24 after the first season came out on DVD just because a couple of friends and a lot of hype said it was great. I can attest that nobody lied. This show somehow obtains a level of stress for the viewer and sustains it in a way never matched by any show in my 40ish years ov watching TV. I could go into great detail but that is a waste, get the DVD's watch them, or get the starter set (waste your money to get the addition) and you will end up right back here :) TV was never better. Oh, and make sure you got some time off from work you can use, you will not want to stop for anything, you don't believe me now, but you will :)

I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT. CAN'T STOP WATCHING--JUST CAN'T BELIEVE THE SUSPENSE AND INTRIGUE. WHERE HAVE I BEEN WHILE THIS HAS BEEN AIRING ON TV? HOWEVER, IF I HAD TO WAIT A WEEK FOR THE NEXT EPISODE, I WOULD PROBABLY SHAKE THE TV APART TRYING TO GET IT SOONER.

Well. OK. I don't really mean that. I guess there is coverage for national tragedies, there are excellent stories about powerful women and men that sometimes capture the imagination of viewers with inspiration and promise, and there is the reporting on the funeral of aging prelates and the like that on occasion exceed 24 in quality. But stories, you know, the things that capture us, shows that bring together great writing, great acting, great photography and little or no pandering are few and far between. 24, the 3 seasons, is one of them.

First of all, the casting is fantastic. Kudos to Sutherland, who hasn't asked for more money, given interviews on how he kept his integrity, or been arrested for drugs, sex or rock 'n roll. He has stayed in the background, given props to his fellows and been charming. Tony Almeda and President Palmer likewise. And the women are attractive and yet not pawns. There are no shower scenes, and the relationships that Jack gets into are issues of the heart, not other things. It's not gratuitous. And the women are tough and bad. Remember Michelle pumping 4 rounds into that dude? COLD!

Jack's kind of like Reacher, another great Jack, in the Lee Child series, always alone, extremely loyal and with in the words of a pretty good wordsmith from the '60's, 'with a code, that he can live by.'

The indication from the first of the 72 hours that this was going to be different was that it left you breathless. Each show, with few exceptions, never failed to plumb the depths of your imagination, nerves and interest. When Jack shoots a colleague in the early episodes of 1 and then the colleague lives and then turns out to be a triple agent, you're so confused you don't know what's up. I believe that's one of the hallmarks of 24.
