    '24' continues to distinguish itself as the most original show on television. [27 Oct 2003]
  2. The first hour... is as kinetic as any episode the show has done. [26 Oct 2003]

    The shows starts somewhat slower, but the second half and endgames are amazing. A lot of shocking moment happened in this season, a 24 specialty. Gets better and better Full Review »

    Early seasons set a high bar, and this one did not disappoint -- for about 20 episodes. After a compelling set-up (albeit with the usual amount of characters set on fire by Mexicans at 9 pm and leading an assault upon criminal mercenary strongholds in LA at 5 am), the plot begins to spring more leaks than a Burundian submarine. Disappointing finish with multiple characters behaving in a way that beggars belief even by 24 rules. Full Review »

    I have yet to see a show like this. Incredible in every aspect and exciting in every second. The season finale is one of the greatest episodes of all time. Full Review »
