Important to note if you are buying this package having not seen the show before (having heard about it from others but too late to join in watching it on TV) that there are spoilers all over the presentation. the enclosed booklet includes short summaries of every episode and not much else, so don't look at it until you've seen the whole show. Similarly the menus feature clips from the show which is nice to watch if you aren't worried about information being given away, as the clips on the menu for each disc tend to reveal major plot points.
Also, the DVD extras are actually pretty poor. The alternative ending is dull and obviously only shot to keep the true ending secret. The teaser for season 2 comprises only Kiefer Sutherland talking in very vague terms about the general concept of 24, with no real information about the second series.
Worst of all is the fact that the footage on the discs is only the footage that was originally broadcast IN THE US. In the UK the broadcast footage included an extra couple of minutes for each of the episodes 7pm - 12pm. This footage contained scenes that was cut from the US broadcast for adverts, whereas in the UK 24 was shown on the BBC where there are no adverts.
These scenes ranged from nice additions to important points: one cut scene had a major impact on the crucial events in the final episode and another even greatly improved the climactic battle between Jack and the bad guys.
Fox haven't included this footage on the DVD versions in either the UK or the US, meaning that us poor Brits have scenes that we miss and this has led to calls for a recall and replacement with the full footage. For the US viewer, this is actually worse, in that you are never going to see these great scenes. There are no running time issues on DVD, unlike on TV, so why not let those fans willing to pay for the box set have bonus footage integrated into their box sets?
Bizarrely, this doesn't affect the VHS British release of 24, only the DVD, so if you want those extra scenes you'll need a PAL compatible TV and VCR.
Why not drop Fox an email congratulating them on making such a great show and asking for them to include the full footage as was broadcast on the BBC?
The show is absolutely incredible. It runs in real time, so each episode takes one hour, with each thread of action happening concurrently. Starting off with Jack and his family in the living room, it quickly goes from there to kidnapping, espionage, and an attempt to thwart an assassination on the black candidate for president, played by Dennis Haysbert. I WISH this president could actually run, interesting dynamic to see his incredibly strong integrity in tension with those around him and how that impacts the overall story.
Sutherland is the perfect star for this show - family guy, not the standard tough guy, but smart and resourceful. He is a very well-balanced character. This is truly the longest day of his life, and you get to share it every step of the way with him. There are a few really key surprises that will shock you.
I have found only a few small mistakes throughout, sometimes something gets misplaced slightly, etc., but not something that bothers you unless you are an editor for a living.
Watch this show, but be warned, it is incredibly addictive, and with so many seasons, you and your family will need to accommodate!
And, remember, this all takes place in one 24 hour period, the number of times things happen at exactly the last second to completely change the direction of events - unbelievable - truly NOT believable. Just as a person is about to push a button, or shoot someone, or be found out, or whatever - just at that last second - something happens to save the day or change the course. It's ridiculous at times.
In hour 23, Teri Bauer says, "When is this going to end?" and I laughed saying to myself - I agree! When??
All that said, watch it if just for the concept which is killer by the way. Ok I'm going to hit the submit button ... unless something happens at the last second to stop me!
