24: Longest-Running Series

24 DVD24 is the second longest-running television series in the history (Behind the original Mission: Impossible and The Avengers). After the conclusion of the eighth season, 24 will become the record holder in both these categories. It was an American television show drama broadcast by Fox in the United States and syndicated worldwide.

24 is a creative television program that could best be described as "High Noon" for the 21st Century X and Y generational groups starved for cinema-like ideas and executions. "24" runs an hour a week, in real time, and advances to a staggering climax as an anti-terrorist specialist (Kiefer Sutherland) races against the clock to save the day. Assassination attempts, germ warfare and anti-American enemies are constant obstacles for Sutherland, daughter Elisha Cuthbert, president Dennis Haysbert and an innumerable cast of others. Regulars come and go, guest stars make lasting impressions and cliff-hanger sequences will leave you gasping for air and possibly grasping your chest to calm your heart down. So many things happen over the course of one day on this show. Sutherland and Haysbert are top-flight performers and they prove to be the biggest assets.

The film is broadcast in the semblance of real time, with each season depicting a 24-hour period in the life of Jack Bauer (starred by Kiefer Sutherland), who works with the United States government as it fights fictitious terrorist threats to the United States. Bauer is often in the field for the Los Angeles Counter Terrorist Unit as it tries to safeguard the nation from terrorist threats. The tv 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, although occasionally other locations have been featured as well as most notably, Washington, D.C., where a portion of the episodes took place during the fourth and sixth seasons. Departing from tradition, the seventh season is set primarily in Washington, D.C. Season 8 is to take place in New York City. Negotiations will be held shortly to decide if the show will return for a ninth season.

24 has made its mark in television history by being the first show in real time one-hour episodes. Viewers love "24" and can't wait for "24: The Game", the video game version created by Sony for Play Station 2.
