24 is presented in Real time, with each season depicting a 24-hour period in the life of Jack Bauer, who works with the U.S. government as it fights threats on U.S. soil. Bauer is often in the field for the fictional Los Angeles Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) as they try to safeguard the nation from terrorist threats. The show also follows the actions of other CTU agents, government officials and terrorists associated with the plot. The first six seasons of the show were all based in Los Angeles and nearby locations — both real and fictional — in California, although occasionally other locations have been featured as well — most notably, Washington, D.C., where a significant portion of the action took place during the fourth and sixth seasons. Promotional materials for the seventh season have already established that, departing from tradition, it will be set primarily in Washington, D.C.[1] Real time is a term used to describe a motion picture, television or radio program, or computer game wherein the events depicted take place entirely within the span of time that lasts from the beginning of the depiction to the end, and at the same rate. ...

After leading actor Kiefer Sutherland won a Golden Globe for his role in the first 10 episodes, the ratings of the show increased, leading FOX to order the second half of the season. There have been six seasons of 24 produced. On May 15, 2007, it was confirmed that FOX has ordered seventh and eighth seasons.[2] A motion picture based on the show has been written and was scheduled to be filmed in 2007 for a 2008 release but plans for production were put on hold to focus on the TV series.[3] Kiefer William Frederick Dempsey George Rufus Sutherland (born December 21, 1966) is an Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning British actor, well known for his lead role of Jack Bauer on the television series 24. ...

The seventh season, originally scheduled to premiere on January 13, 2008, was initially postponed in the wake of the 2007-08 Writers Guild of America strike to ensure a non stop season, a trademark of the show since the start of its fourth season in January 2005.[4][5] It is now officially postponed until January 2009.[6][7] is the 13th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ... 2008 (MMVIII) is the current year, a leap year that started on Tuesday of the Common Era (or Anno Domini), in accordance with the Gregorian calendar. ...

Elements

Real time

An example of a 24 split-screen with the running clock, from the season 4 premiere.

24 is a thriller which is shown in "real-time," with each minute of airtime corresponding to a minute in the lives of the characters.[12] Commercial breaks are placed at times when non-essential plot is taking place (e.g., characters driving somewhere will begin when a commercial break starts and arrive at their destination at the end of the commercial break). This allows for the show to actually occur in real time without compromising action. The real time clock of the show continues to roll during the commercials, emphasizing the reality of the 24 hours of the season in which the characters work. Finally, 24 does not use slow motion techniques, even on moments of rapid action or sleight-of-hand, which other franchises might choose to emphasize in that way. The thriller is a broad genre of literature, film, and television. ... Real-time is a term used to describe a motion picture, television or radio program, or computer game wherein the events depicted take place entirely within the span of time that lasts from the beginning of the depiction to the end, and at the same rate. ... Slow motion is an effect resulting from running film through a movie camera at faster-than-normal speed. ...


Actual show run time without commercials is between 42-44 minutes, as is typical for hour long television shows on many commercial stations. However, the effect only works if episodes are shown with commercial breaks during the show and then only if these are inserted at the right points in time and have the same length, which may not fit in with the normal programming of a commercial station. A television advertisement or television commercial (often just commercial) is a span of television programming produced and paid for by an organization that conveys a message. ...


Watched continuously, each season would take approximately 17 hours to finish. This real-time nature is emphasized by an on-screen digital clock appearing before and after commercial breaks, with a distinct beeping noise for each second, alternating between C and D tones. This time corresponds to the in-universe time of the show. The characters will often place time windows (such as the common "within the hour") on certain events such as terrorist threats, thus strongly hinting the attack/event will occur before the end of the episode. In music theory, a diatonic scale (from the Greek diatonikos, to stretch out; also known as the heptatonia prima; set form 7-35) is a seven-note musical scale comprising five whole-tone and two half-tone steps, in which the half tones are maximally separated. ...


The action switches between different locations tracing parallel adventures of different characters involved in the same overarching plot. As a result, there may be long sections of unseen narrative for each character, in which case a character may only be seen for a portion of an episode's overall running time.[13]


Storytelling and visual style

24 employs fast-paced and complex plots. Though each day's events typically revolve around thwarting an impending terrorist attack, the series maintains an episodic format by requiring its characters to investigate leads on said terrorists, with each lead taking roughly an hour and introducing the next episode's lead in its closing minutes. The exact objective of the day may also change over the course of the season, as the terrorists adapt their plans, execute contingencies, or are discovered to have been mere pawns in a larger, more insidious scheme. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


A recurring theme of 24 has characters faced with the decision of whether to let something tragic happen for the sake of a greater good. In Season 2, a Dept. of Defense staffer has the chance to warn CTU of an imminent attack on their building, but argues doing so would put the culprits on alert and thus cause a valuable trail to go cold.[14] A similar situation occurs in Season 5, when terrorists plan to release a canister of nerve gas inside a busy shopping mall.[15] In Season 3, the President and CTU agents must choose between the life of a high-ranking CTU official and the imminent threat of further attacks,[16] while Season 4 is notable for a scene in which two men — one of whom possesses crucial information about a nuclear missile strike, and the other is the husband of a major character — lie dying in an emergency room, creating the ethical dilemma of whom to save.[17] In addition, the sitting President often has to deal with a similar quandary. For example, in Season 6, President Wayne Palmer asks Jack Bauer to sacrifice himself in exchange for the location of a known terrorist.[18] 24 is an Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning American action drama television series. ... This article or section on a Television-related subject may need to be cleaned up and rewritten because it describes a work of fiction in a primarily in-universe style. ...


The first season began and ended at midnight,[19] and during its ninth episode (8:00 - 9:00 AM) Jack mentioned that he had already been awake for 24 hours. Later seasons have tended to use a different time window, starting in the morning[20] or early afternoon[21] to allow filming to begin in the summer when there are more daylight hours available.


For the first two seasons, 24 frequently used split-screen action to follow multiple plots, although from Season 3 onward this was scaled back somewhat and confined mostly to phone conversations and shots leading into and out of commercial breaks.[22]


Creative influences

Immediately prior to 24, series co-creators Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran executive-produced La Femme Nikita for its entire five-year run on USA Network. Both series deal with anti-terrorist operations, and the lead characters of both series are placed in situations where they must make a tragic choice in order to serve the greater good. As a result, the on- and off-screen creative connections between 24 and La Femme Nikita are highly pronounced. Numerous actors from La Femme Nikita have portrayed similar roles on 24, a number of story concepts from La Femme Nikita have been revisited on 24, and many of the creative personnel from La Femme Nikita currently work (or have worked) on 24 in the same capacity.[23][24] Joel Surnow is an American writer and producer best known for being the creator of the Emmy winning television series 24. ... Robert Cochran (also credited as Bob Cochran) is the co-creator of the television series 24, which is currently airing on the Fox television network. ... La Femme Nikita (Nikita in Canada) is a television spy drama based upon the original French film directed by Luc Besson, co-produced by Jay Firestone (Firestone Entertainment) and Warner Bros. ... USA Network is a popular American cable television network with about 89 million household subscribers as of 2005. ...


In addition, 24 borrows some aspects of the 1997 film Air Force One, namely the plane itself and the use of the 25th amendment. In Seasons 2, 4 and 6, Air Force One can be seen and the series reused the same set as the one featured in the movie.[25] Additionally, four actors featured on 24 — Xander Berkeley, Glenn Morshower, Wendy Crewson and Spencer Garrett — played roles in Air Force One. Terrorist Egor Korshunov (Gary Oldman) confronts the President of the United States (Harrison Ford). ... For the current aircraft, see Boeing VC-25. ... Xander Berkeley (born December 16, 1955) is a well-known American actor, who, despite having had few leading roles, has appeared in more than 80 motion pictures. ... Glenn Morshower (born April 24, 1959 in Dallas, Texas) is a popular American character actor perhaps best known for his recurring role as Secret Service Agent Aaron Pierce on the television drama 24. ... Wendy Crewson (born May 9, 1956 in Hamilton, Ontario) is a Canadian actress. ...


Counter Terrorist Unit

Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) is a fictional U.S. government anti-terrorist agency and is similar to the real-life FBI/NYPD Joint Terrorism Task Force, the CIA Counterterrorist Center's Special Activities Division and the National Counterterrorism Center. Its headquarters are in Washington, D.C., with satellite operations in major cities where threats are likely. CTU's primary mission is to disrupt and destroy foreign and domestic terror cells hostile to the United States, as well as protect it from terrorist attacks. With an office in nearly every major city, CTU also has a role in creating security policy and fighting groups of organized crime, which fund terrorism.[26] ... Terrorism is a controversial term with multiple definitions. ... The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is a federal criminal investigative, intelligence agency, and the primary investigative arm of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ). ... The New York City Police Department (NYPD) , the largest police department in the United States, has primary responsibility for law enforcement and investigation within the five boroughs of New York City. ... The Joint Terrorism Task Force is a section of the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation charged with taking action against terrorism. ... The CIA Seal The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is an American intelligence agency, responsible for obtaining and analyzing information about foreign governments, corporations, and individuals, and reporting such information to the various branches of the U.S. Government. ...

CTU offices are run by a Director, also called the Special Agent in Charge, to whom the Director of Field Operations and the Chief of Staff report. Departments within a CTU office include Communications ("Comm"), Logistics, and Tactical ("Field Ops"). Communications and Logistics personnel report directly to the Chief of Staff, whereas Tactical personnel are deployed into Tactical Teams ("Tac Teams") by the Director of Field Operations.


The Los Angeles CTU Field Office houses several areas. The first floor contains the Situation Room, as well as the main communications complex and command center, often referred to as "The Floor." On the second floor is the Director's office and Field Ops office. Situated elsewhere in the building are the Information Technology department (I.T.), an in-house Medical clinic, Meteorology department, several Holding Rooms used for interrogation and confinement, and Tech Rooms, which contain the bulk of the physical computer hardware used by CTU.


The CTU offices within a region report to a Divisional Office, overseen by the Division Director. Divisional offices cover a larger amount of territory in their jurisdiction. Finally, the Divisional office and all other offices report to a District Headquarters, overseen by a Regional Director. This title implies each District Headquarters has jurisdiction over an entire region of the United States. However, in Season 1, the reverse was implied: the District Director, George Mason, reported to District Manager Richard Walsh (who was killed in the second episode), and then Ryan Chappelle, the Regional Director from Division. However, in the Season 2 finale, Chappelle referred to a Mr. Vaughn, the District Director, as his superior.


CTU often suffers setbacks for the sake of plot. Despite the high-profile and high-risk nature of its duties, it is frequently infiltrated by double agents, and several times has been attacked or seized by terrorist forces.


It has been confirmed by the Season 7 Trailer that "CTU is gone" and Jack Bauer is on his own while Chloe has to help him. According to issue #11 of The Official 24 Magazine, CTU has been disbanded at some point between Day 6 and Day 7, although it is possible that this is only a ruse, and that the organization has actually gone underground.


Recurring plot devices

There are some plot devices which are used frequently on 24.

  • Weapons of mass destruction: WMDs, especially nuclear weapons, are constant threats on the show. Seasons 2 and 6 have been based around the threat of nuclear weapons. In Season 3, it was a weaponized virus. Season 5 was a fictional nerve gas variant. Season 4 featured the threat of a nuclear weapon also, but the entire season did not center around this plot.
  • Ineffective field operatives: When arriving at a crime scene or a suspected location of a sought-after character, CTU field agents will often call for establishment of a security perimeter around the area. These tend to be ineffective and the culprit will evade detection and escape.
  • Traitors in the government: CTU is often compromised by moles. A major subplot in Season 1 was the presence of a so-called "dirty agent" working with terrorists. As it turned out, there were 2 dirty agents in Season 1 (Nina Myers and Jamey Farrell). Jamey Farrell was originally thought to be the only dirty agent, but it was later revealed that Nina Myers was also a dirty agent. Since then, another agent was found to be dirty in Season 4. Two traitors in the White House were exposed in Season 5 (Walt Cummings and President Charles Logan). Many others have been accused of espionage.
  • Invocation of the 25th Amendment: Section 4 of the 25th Amendment states if the Vice President and a majority of the President's cabinet votes that the President is unable to fulfill his duties, he will be removed. It was first invoked during Season 2, to stop then President David Palmer from aborting an attack, which would propel the U.S. into war. He was removed by one vote, but ultimately prevented the attack. It was invoked on Seasons 4 and 6, after assassination attempts injured, but did not kill, Presidents Keeler and Wayne Palmer. Mike Novick was involved with it being invoked in both the 2nd and 4th seasons.
  • Insubordination in CTU: Characters at CTU frequently go against their superiors' orders. Jack Bauer is, by far, the most guilty of this action; he has broken CTU protocol at least once in all six seasons, and often manages to convince other agents to help him or cover for him (usually Chloe O'Brian, Tony Almeida or Michelle Dessler). Occasionally he resorts to assaulting his superior (Almeida or George Mason). Supporting characters have also been known to go behind their superiors' backs, but generally when they feel the current director of CTU is incompetent or inefficient. Almost inevitably, these characters are granted amnesty for their actions, which are proved to have been towards the greater good; the sole exception has been Tony Almeida, who was imprisoned after Season 3 for succumbing to villain Stephen Saunders' blackmail.
  • Frequent change in command: So far on the series, there have been six on-screen Presidents. Only three of those six were actually elected into office, and only one served for a full term. One President resigned, one ex-President was assassinated, another was incapacitated by a bomb, another was arrested, and another was seriously injured when Air Force One was shot down. Also, there have been twelve directors of CTU, many of whom have also either resigned or been killed.
  • CTU directors: in general, the current head of CTU LA (be it Jack, Tony, George Mason, Bill Buchanan, Michelle Dessler or some other) is depicted by the writers of the show as being willing to compromise protocol for the sake of progress. Frequently, Division sends over a new, by-the-book director to (in the words of Alberta Green) "slow things way down" and reassert control over the maverick department;and, in doing so, oppress or reduce the efficiency of CTU LA employees attempting to perform their jobs under deadline. About half these directors have eventually evolved from agents of bureaucracy to allies and partners-in-crime, facilitating CTU's work even at the expense of protocol; almost inevitably, these "reformed" directors (Ryan Chappelle, Lynn McGill) sacrifice their lives in a heroic fashion, with only Buchanan having yet survived the process. Just as inevitably, they are eventually replaced by yet another bureaucrat.
  • Threatening family members to force compliance: Villains in the series frequently kidnap and threaten to kill close family members of the main characters in order to force them to work against CTU or the government (usually covertly). In addition, Jack has threatened to (or advised others to) execute in exchange for crucial information regarding an imminent terrorist attack.
  • Revealing information in exchange for immunity: Many terrorists/villains with major knowledge that CTU desires will often require they be acquitted of past crimes. These characters include Nina Myers, Mandy, Jacob Rossler, Collette Stenger, Christopher Henderson, Dina Araz, and Dmitri Gredenko.
  • Torture: Jack and others employ the use of torture or threats of torture in nearly every situation in order to extract information. In most cases, the torture is justified as serving the greater good, although there is sometimes a conflict of interest in which torture is also motivated by revenge. CTU has also used hyoscine-pentothal, a fictional pain-inducing drug, in interrogation sessions where quick results are needed.[27]. This has been used on both agents and antagonists. Its effects are completely unlike the effects of real hyoscine and pentothal. The show has been criticized by human rights groups for its over-use of torture scenes[28] [29]; in response the show's writers have said that they will try to include fewer torture scenes in future episodes[citation needed].
  • Retribution: While antagonists in 24 usually are dealt with a sense of justice, some are intentionally killed by Jack after he deems that their usefulness and danger are over: Victor Drazen (shot repeatedly after he falls into the water), Nina Myers (shot while injured in CTU detention), Conrad Haas (executed by Jack after an incapacitated Haas confessed to shooting David Palmer) and Christopher Henderson (shot while unarmed atop a submarine). Similarly in Season 3, the wife of a victim of terrorism activity kills Stephen Saunders while both are in CTU.
  • Jack's absence from CTU: The only time Jack is a CTU agent between seasons is before Day 1 and in between Days 2 and 3. Prior to every other season, Jack is always somewhere else where his skills are not being practised. Before Day 2, Jack was retired from CTU after the death of his wife, Teri. 15 months before Day 4, Jack began working for the Secretary of Defense, James Heller, after he was fired from CTU by Erin Driscoll because of his heroin addiction. Before Day 5, Jack was working at an oil refinery. Before Day 6, Jack was in a Chinese prison.

Main casts

Season 7 cast

24 is known for making major changes to its main cast every season — the sole exception being Kiefer Sutherland, who is the only main cast member to star in all six seasons to date. Glenn Morshower, who plays Aaron Pierce, is the only actor besides Sutherland to appear in all six seasons. Due to the unpredictable nature of each season's storyline, main cast members are added and dropped frequently. In a few cases, guest stars have been upgraded to main cast members during the course of a season.

Viewership increased midway through its second season when the mega-hit American Idol became the lead-in to 24 starting in February 2003. For its fourth season, FOX gave the show a vote of confidence by moving 24 out of the post-American Idol time slot (to make room for the eventual hit drama, House) and placed it on Monday nights at 9:00 p.m. Eastern (8:00 p.m. Central) while it aired the show in consecutive weeks, beginning in mid-January of 2005. The consecutive-week schedule was also implemented for 2006, beginning in mid-January 2006. American Idol is an American reality-competition show airing on Fox. ...

In comparison to its 2005 season, 24 in 2006 was up 16% in overall viewers and 14% in viewers of the advertiser-friendly 18 – 49 age demographic.[41] Thus, the series has so far reached its ratings peak in 2006.


The sixth season's two-night, four-hour premiere gained its largest audience ever, scoring an average 15.7 million viewers.[42] At one stage, ratings peaked at 16.3 million viewers. The first 4 episodes of season 6 gained an average of 33 million viewers.


Viewership has increased steadily for 24, except for a slight fall in the third season. FOX was able to continue gaining audience share in 2005 and 2006 with non-stop seasons and the number of viewers was up over 60% in season 5 vs season 1.[43]


International broadcasters

24 is widely broadcast in other parts of the world, including Africa, Europe, Latin America, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East. Its viewership in the UK, however, decreased when the BBC lost the rights to satellite channels Sky One and FX after the second season.


Critical reaction

Because of the "real-time" storytelling approach to 24, and the series' willingness to directly address the threat of terrorism, the implementation of torture as a way to acquire information and the use and misuse of government authority, the series has generated a sizeable critical reaction, both positive and negative. The series and the main character Jack have been accused of promoting the use of excessive violence and torture in the minds of the voting public, in part to support the policies of the current federal government.[44] Because of the real-time storytelling approach to the Fox Network television series 24, and the series willingness to directly address the threat of terrorism, the implementation of torture as a way to acquire information and the use and misuse of government authority, the series has generated a sizeable critical...

DVD releases

The release of 24 on DVD has had a significant impact on the success of the television series. In an interview with IGN in 2002, Sutherland revealed, "[24's] success in England was phenomenal. It was the biggest show the BBC has ever had. It was the number one DVD there, knocking off Lord of the Rings, which is unheard of for a television show DVD to actually knock-out every feature DVD available. And that's because they showed it without commercials."[45] The U.S. sales of the Season 1 DVDs increased the audience size of Season 2 by 25%.[46] IGN - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia /**/ @import /skins-1. ... This article is about the Peter Jackson film trilogy. ...


At CES 2007, Fox Home Entertainment announced the complete first season of 24 would be released on the Blu-ray disc format in early 2007[47] although this has not yet come to fruition and no date for the Blu-Ray release has been confirmed. Blu-ray Disc (also known as Blu-ray or BD) is an optical disc storage media format. ...


The Region 1 DVD releases of 24 strictly emphasize actor Kiefer Sutherland on the cover art for all six seasons to date, while the Region 2 & 4 DVDs instead echo the series' split-screen format by featuring the major players in each respective season. This presented audiences who had not seen the TV broadcast (since the series moved to premium channel Sky One) in the UK with a large spoiler on the front cover of season four — which featured 'surprise' special guest star Tony Almeida.


A "limited special edition" of Day Six is also available in the United States. In addition to the DVDs, the box includes a booklet with an episode guide, each major character's job description and biographical information, and script excerpts.


In mid-2007, the first four seasons were re-issued, featuring slim-packaging in line with the season 5 release, and improved video quality, especially in the first season, which was initially rushed to DVD. The metallic "24" logo has also been dropped in favor of the seven segment display logo. A seven segment display (sometimes written as 7-segment display) is a form of display that predates the now ubiquitous dot-matrix displays. ...


Fox has announced a special edition re-release of season 1, which was released on May 20 2008. The new set includes a 7th disc packed with bonus features, while disks 1-6 contain all 24 episodes with deleted scenes, audio commentary, and 5 extended episodes.

The success of 24 has led to the series being extended into other arenas, including media specifically created for mobile devices and the internet.
