Season synopses

Every season so far follows a similar format, centering on Jack Bauer and the elite Counter Terrorist Unit dealing with a central threat posed to national security, including terrorists in later seasons. Surprise sacrifices, backstabbings, and other plot twists are common. Besides the central threat, each season has several major subplots that span the majority of the episodes and become interwoven with the main plot, which itself tends to change once or twice as a season progresses. Throughout each season, Jack Bauer often faces intense personal anguish in addition to his tasks to stop the terrorists. Official CTU Seal The Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) is a fictional U.S. government agency in the television action series 24. ... A Plot twist is a change (twist) in the direction or expected outcome of the plot of a film or novel. ...


Each season runs in "real-time" and starts at a different time on different days. The show is set largely in Los Angeles, so the "time" is set in Pacific Standard Time. Each episode portrays one hour of time, and one season is comprised of 24 episodes. The Pacific Standard Time Zone is a geographic region that keeps time by subtracting eight hours from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). ...


This real-time nature gives the show a strong sense of urgency, emphasized by the ticking of an on-screen digital clock appearing from time to time. Throughout every episode the action switches between different locations, following the parallel adventures of different characters all involved in the same story. 24 has received critical and popular acclaim, and has become a true "watercooler" show.

Popular and Critical Acclaim

24 has received critical and popular acclaim, and has become a true "watercooler show" . However, the necessities of its format sometimes lead to lots of egregious padding and manifest absurdities. For example, traffic jams are surprisingly uncommon for a show set mostly in Southern California, which along with the fact that the main characters never seem to use the bathroom, have become popular subjects of parody and stand-up humor throughout the show's history, and call upon the audience for a considerable amount of suspension of disbelief.

Real-time Nature of 24

24 is a thriller that purports to be shown in "real-time", with each minute of airtime corresponding to a minute in the lives of the characters. This real-time nature gives the show a strong sense of urgency, emphasized by the ticking of an on-screen digital clock appearing from time to time. Since it is an American commercial-television series, almost one-quarter of 24's time is spent on commercials, which break up the show, resulting in episodes which last about forty-four minutes. The thriller is a genre of fiction in which tough, resourceful, but essentially ordinary heroes are pitted against villains determined to destroy them, their country, or the stability of the free world. ...


Elsewhere there may be no commercials at all (e.g. on BBC and on the DVD versions), or only before and after the show, so the clock that is shown sometimes 'jumps' where commercials are planned for the United States, and is thus not real-time. In the United States, action that takes place during the advertising breaks is not shown (although some episodes do not have breaks thanks to sponsorship deals). Throughout every episode the action switches between different locations, following the parallel adventures of different characters all involved in the same story. Corporate logo of the British Broadcasting Corporation. ... DVD-R writing/reading side DVD-R with purple dye, 4. ... Generally speaking, advertising is the promotion of goods, services, companies and ideas, usually by an identified sponsor. ...


Long sections of narrative for each character are not seen, and mundane actions (such as car journeys) are either skipped just as they are in conventional drama, or briefly shown in split-screen panels above the clock upon returning from commercial breaks - these quickly update the audience on what characters not currently featured in the main narrative are doing. Characters rarely eat, rest, or take bathroom breaks – and this is a common complaint made by people who haven't seen the show – but in fact, due to the sheer number of storylines, characters will usually only be seen for at most fifteen minutes per episode, so there is plenty of time for these things to happen offscreen. Furthermore, due to the plots' nature of dealing with national security emergencies, many of the characters are presumed to skip meals to in order to do more work, and several times (albeit mostly in the first two seasons) the characters are shown eating and becoming visibly fatigued and make verbal references about how long they've been awake.


The "real-time" technique is not often seen on television, yet it is not new. It dates back to at least 1949, with the film noir The Set-Up. One of the best known examples is High Noon. The similarities of the first 24 season to the 1995 real-time movie Nick of Time suggest the series was inspired by the movie's plot and technique: In Nick of Time, a man's daughter is kidnapped in order to set him up to assassinate a governor within ninety minutes. 24 also borrows its use of split-screen techniques from Timecode, a film released in 2000, to show events in two different places at once. Despite not having invented the "real-time" and split-screen techniques, the show has applied them on a scale never before seen on television, and is thus regarded as an innovative program. Much like the BBC spy series, Spooks (which, although not "real time" is slightly reminiscent of 24 and heavily dependent on split-screen technique), the use of these techniques has determined the visual and technological feel of the series.

  • Provisions have had to be made in the script for the real life injuries of cast members, due to the real-time format. For instance, Kiefer Sutherland fell out of his on-set trailer early in season two, so a scene had to be written in where he removes a piece of shrapnel from his leg after surviving a plane crash. This explains the limp he had for a few episodes. Carlos Bernard also injured himself on set, breaking his ankle while playing basketball in a break in filming. A scene was then filmed that featured Jack breaking Tony's ankle during an escape from CTU. [citation needed]
  • After the original November 25, 2003 broadcast of 24, Kiefer Sutherland broke character to address the issue of gun safety, most likely to help protect Fox from liability in case someone attempted to recreate the Russian roulette scenes.

We then shift to a scene in the desert. We close in on a parachute, then pan over to reveal George Mason, who jumped out of the plane before the bomb exploded. The end. [citation needed]

In the fifth season, Keeler's vice president, who's currently the Acting President, is the permanent president for the balance of Keeler's term.

Fan phone

In Episode 4.5, Debbie's cell phone rang with a valid California phone number on the caller ID (310-597-3781). Many fans noticed this and began calling the number as soon as the episode concluded. Some received a voice mail message telling them that they called the 24 prop phone and to leave a message. Others talked to live people, including Production Designer Joseph Hodges. Still others claimed that they spoke to stars Kim Raver and Carlos Bernard. Hodges later admitted in an interview that Director Jon Cassar came up with the idea for the "fan phone" because the two of them often got bored scouting new shooting locations and wanted a chance to interact with the audience. Hodges further stated that they received around 80,000 calls on the line during the first week alone. If the show was shooting at the time, you could even speak to a cast member. This phone number was repeated in the episode where Jack attempts to recover the nuclear football; he gives his cell number to a man and his wife fleeing from Marwan [6].
