    '24' isn't getting off to the spectacular start that it did in its debut season when the focus was singular and clear-cut. [29 Oct 2002]

    A nuclear bomb will go off somewhere in Los Angeles in some point over the day and it is Jack Bauer's job to find it before that happens.A nuclear bomb will go off somewhere in Los Angeles in some point over the day and it is Jack Bauer's job to find it before that happens.

    The second season of the show provides more of the same and is great again, with it being noticeable that the whole season was planned out in advance, unlike the first time around. The main plot was topical then and is still topical today, with the Iraq War still fresh in everyone's minds.

    Whereas the first season was personal to Bauer, this is more about protecting his country and his and Palmer's stories are again gripping, with some of the supporting characters also getting great arcs. The subplot involving Kim Bauer and her quest to stop an abusive father, which has nothing to do with the main story and flits from one different, unrelated situation to another isn't particularly great but it doesn't spoil the season
