    This is a very average season and nowhere near the heart pounding drama and ingenious twists of season one. The real time format has been all but abandoned and the producers of running a story that lasts for more than two episodes in case the viewer watches something else, much unlike seasons one and two. The sub-plots are annoying, predictable and pointless and jack has been relegated to This is a very average season and nowhere near the heart pounding drama and ingenious twists of season one.

The sub-plots are annoying, predictable and pointless and jack has been relegated to another face, lacking the edge which made him so great in the first two seasons. Don't be fooled by the high ratings - this is a poor shadow of its former self. Expand

    "24" should now really be titled "120" - which is, coincidentally, about the number of ways this show is overrated.

    This season is filled with poor writing. For example, I think the subplot of Jack's father, Phillip, is beyond ridiculous. Nothing to do with his motives, just CTU's apparent apathy to even question him, let alone allow to freely tamper with evidence, spy on them, etc. I cringed while I watched how dumb that was.

  1. A heart-pounding, mesmerizing adventure unlike anything else up or down the dial.
  2. It's the most thrilling premiere hour of "24" yet.

    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.
