24 Hours!!!

In this concept drama, each season takes place within one 24 hour period. Jack Bauer is the head of an elite team of CIA 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?

Edge of your seat stuff!! Original!

24 is one of the best action drama to come out of Hollywood in years!The story is about a presidential candidate who is an assassination target and the race is on to stop the would-be killers.It has twists and turns and you never know who to trust.I can't wait for the second season to be released in SA.Its available in Europe for those lucky enough to afford it!

Excellent Stuff!

I watched this one on TV and found that the realtime concept was brilliant! The way it was done was very clever. The premise is that an assassination of a Senator in the running for the Presidency is to be done on the day of the California Primaries. The Head of CTU, Jack Bauer, has had his family kidnapped and the story reveloves around the 24 hours of that day and all the things that occur on Jack's worst day ever. The DVD is presented with each episode in it's entirety. and can be viewed individually or in a single sitting. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys action and tense situations all crammed into a short space of time.
