  1. A heart-pounding, mesmerizing adventure unlike anything else up or down the dial.
  2. Having seen the first four episodes, you need to be a part of this. You need to doff the skepticism and get on the ride.
  3. Four hours in, living up to past standards no longer is in question. Setting new ones is what's going on here, as "24," partly by cashing in on our knowledge of and commitment to previous seasons and characters, gets off to its best start ever.
  4. 90
    The first four hours confirm that 24 remains powerfully addictive.

    I didn’t know how 24 could top last season, but so far it’s working. And the edge of my seat is already frayed.

    At least in the first four hours... the show reminds us of the intense thrills it can provide even without threatening to blow up the entire planet.
  7. "24" still provides an irresistible blend of iPodish computer wizardry and "Perils of Pauline" cliffhanger suspense.

    Beautifully Scripted, wonderfully cast. Incredible plot twists that keep the audience entertained and satisfied. This season is the best oneBeautifully Scripted, wonderfully cast. Incredible plot twists that keep the audience entertained and satisfied. This season is the best one since the first. Benefiting on a mesmerizing performance from Kiefer Sutherland in each and every episode, the show has yet to die down in its complexity. There are no words in the English language that can accurately describe the effects that 24 has on the human mind. Expand

    The inconsistencies of the plot are fun in themselves but of course the main attraction is the most thrilling show, perhaps in television The inconsistencies of the plot are fun in themselves but of course the main attraction is the most thrilling show, perhaps in television history. Watch the Sopranos now and see rather tired shadow - watch 24 and you are watching a show that grows and grows. Aside from Mr. Sutherland's wonderful performance, the actor who played the president easily takes the cake as an absolutely outstanding actor. BRAVO!!!! Expand
