    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

    Exciting, fun, completely and utterly unbelievable. This is not a show for the squeamish. But a show for America as a whole. Good performances all around. Great plots.

    The show gets even better as the stakes have gotten way higher. One of the most action packed and dramatic shows to watch. This season has the worst teri story line

    The second season of 24 kept the outstanding action and script from the first season, the series is good for not being so patriotic and for being directed.

    The action packed and considerably better plorted Season 2 of 24 continues the exhilarating thrills and twists of the first season with added suspense and emotion.

    24 strains credulity here and there... and some of the season premiere's doomsday dialogue smacks of parody. But the real-time format builds tension week-to-week as well as scene-to-scene, and Sutherland keeps adding depth to his portrayal of a man staggering slightly with the weight of the world on his shoulders.
