Season 1 Cast
I love 24 (2001-2010) passionately and I will recommend it to anyone because it’s absolutely the best show in the world. This article is for viewers who would be interested (or will become interested) in watching this amazing show. There are NO SPOILERS because this is a show I want you and everyone else to watch.


So where do I start with this amazing, complex show? First, let me give a little background on the show, it ran from 2001 to 2010, with 8 seasons, a two-hour movie as a prequel to season 7, a special half season in 2014 and a spin-off (That won’t be included) that premiered after the 2017 Superbowl. Each season has 24 episodes which represent an actual 24 hour day (such as midnight to midnight or 8:00 am to 8:00 am) a.k.a real time. To illustrate this fact, a ticking clock is seen multiple times per episode, depicting the time gone by until the next hour begins (a.k.a the next episode). Each episode begins with the voice of Jack Bauer “The following takes place between (the hour that just ended, for example, if the last episode ended at 5 am, then that’s the time the next episode starts at) to (The next hour, using the same example it would be...

While I was thinking about my upcoming anniversary project for the show, I was getting excited and so wanted to post something right away because I have the attention span of a rock. So I thought why not do 24 iconic moments from 24?

What defines an iconic moment?
Obviously all moments from 24 are iconic but I chose moments that shocked us all. Moments that made us emotional. Moments that make 24 24. Important not just for fandom, but for defining and describing what 24 really is.

Before you begin this article, to really get the FULL effect I request you have link open and playing on a loop while you read. You'll thank me later.

Oh yes, there will be spoilers.

There is nothing in pop culture I love more than 24. Nothing. While making this list, I cried multiple times. I show about as much emotion as a pile of dirt, but talking to me about 24 turns me into an entirely different person. Passionate doesn't even begin to describe it. So during this article, I will likely ramble a lot. As I'm doing now. ONWARD!

Looking around the 24 fan page today, I discovered a 24 30-day challenge Jlhfan624 had started a few years ago. It intrigued me so I thought I would do it....in 24 hours. Here it is:


How did you come about being a fan?

My parents watched it when I was younger and were loved it, I saw the airport scene in S5 and it stuck with me, like 10 years later! I remembered the clothes Chloe O'Brian was wearing, everything! I thought it was a government drama,but I was happy to be wrong! on February 7th, 2017 my mom got sick on a day we were supposed to be somewhere and I opened Amazon looking for something to watch, I saw 24 and thought "my parents loved this, I'll try it" Boom! Hooked and obsessed for life, I binge-watched that entire season in one day (as I did with many other seasons) and 24 became the best thing that ever happened to me (at least in pop culture!!)

Favorite season?

3, 4 or 5 I can't decide! They are all amazing!

Many 24 fans debate which season is best, truth is, they are all spectacular seasons. Some might just be a bit better than others. With that said, here are my opinions on the seasons of 24, from worst to best. (With Live Another Day). Fun fact: All even numbered seasons deal with nuclear weapons and all odd seasons deal with personal vendettas, among other things. SPOILER ALERT!!!



9. Day 6-


Season 6 is pretty much everyone’s universal least favorite. Political correctness begins. Jack is broken up after being in a Chinese prison for 20 months and he is about to be handed over and killed by a terrorist. He ends up shooting great agent Curtis Manning for the life of another terrorist, just as a nuclear bomb blows up in Valencia, and yet somehow hours later that same bomb is no longer a problem, just as Jack is shutting down and crying. In this season, Morris gets tortured, we have Noah Daniels, annoying Sandra Palmer as a human rights lawyer, a weird and half baked assassination attempt on Wayne Palmer, Bill Buchanan (one of the best directors) is fired. Surprise, Jack’s evil brother and father were behind the days’ events and...

I’m here to give my personal favorite character list. This list was supposed to be “Top 24 Characters from 24” but I couldn’t decide because there are so many awesome characters! Here goes:

1. Jack Bauer -

Where in the world do you start with Jack Bauer? First of all he is the best TV character of all time, barring no one. He suffers tragic loss and extreme pain and torture (as well as inflicting some himself) takes out the bad guys and saves the world from horrific terror attacks, all in 24 hours, time after time! He is very loyal, shows no mercy and looks awesome with a gun and sunglasses. He is a modern superhero who is unforgettable. Plus he's the one character you never have to worry about dying, no matter how much danger he's in. In addition to everything else he had a wife Teri who was murdered by his partner and has a daughter Kim and granddaughter Teri.

Status: Alive, Widower

Family: Teri Bauer (wife), Kim Bauer (daughter), Graem Bauer (brother), Phillip Bauer (father), Josh Bauer (nephew), Marilyn Bauer (sister in-law), Carol (sister in-law), Stephen Wesley (son in-law), Teri Wesley (granddaughter) and possible...

It wasn’t till after I attended the press conference for Clint Eastwood’s new biopic “J. Edgar” that the fun began for me. I was slightly lost, roaming the corridors of the vast Beverly Wilshire Hotel, looking for the correct elevator, when I bumped into uber-producer Brian Grazer to the TV series “24.” I pointed a tape recorder at him and asked how the feature film of “24” was coming along.

“We’re working on it,” he said. “We’re making the movie. We have a script, and the casting is going along great. We’re about to start casting the main antagonist, the person who plays against Jack Bauer. We have a really great role to play against Kiefer.”

I asked him when he thinks we’re going to see the film.

“I hope to have it out in the first quarter of 2012,” he said.*
(my thought he meant to say late 2012

So I was recently digging through some papers I had in one of my drawers and came across some old 24 stuff back from like '06. I was a HUGE member of the 24um and I had found a thread that fans started called "Why did the chicken cross the road? Responses characters in the show would have." I have NO idea why i printed it off the computer but I am so happy i did because obviously, it no longer exists.
I decided to share it here with you guys because I didn't want it to be lost forever :) Lemme know if any of you happened to be one of the people who came up with these answers, or if you were a 24umer and remember it!

Why did the Chicken Cross the Road?
Teri: What do you MEAN the chicken crossed the road??
Nina: Relax Teri, just because the chicken crossed the road doesn't mean we can't get him back.

Jamey: I needed the money, the chicken promised me $300,000 if i helped him cross the road.

Heller: But if the chicken crossed the road, that means he would be on the OTHER SIDE!

These are the 24 greatest '24' characters in my personal opinion. I was originally going to do an article on the 24 most important characters to the show but I didn't want to work on something of such detail just yet. That would also be another list entirely as I am missing some very high profile characters of the show.

So...enjoy my list! :D

twenty four
Kim Bauer
Dead last in this ranking out of my tops because of how big of a major brat she was to Jack in the beginning of the series & 5. I don't particularly really enjoy her storylines or what she has to offer but Jack loves her and that's good enough for me. Plus, Elisha is one of my favorite actresses ever so I'm kind of required to like her because of that.

twenty three
Janis Gold
So hilarious! I loved her banter with Sean in the early part of season 7. "You're a little bitch, you know that?" - "You're a little bitch." Some simple dialogue like that could only be sarcastically pulled off by Janeane. As much as I don't like how she let her politics get in the way of initially taking the job, she did good with the role.

So um, in an attempt to get our show more fans I have devised this article. This doesn't tell people who are already fans anything new, but I wanted to post it here because I know you all would appreciate it.

So You Want to Watch 24...
Aside from the fact that 24 is the best show any of us will watch in our time, what else do you need to know? There's so much, yet so little. I'm going to include the basics, and give you only so much detail to get you interested but not spoil you.

24 is a real-time show (we'll get into that more later) that stars Kiefer Sutherland as the main protagonist Jack Bauer (we'll also get more into him later). The number '24' has meaning. It represents the 24 hours in a single day. Each season has 24 episodes, each episode representing a single hour of the 'day' in 24. The show is extremely fast-paced and yes, you will have to actually pay attention. (And there goes half of my article readers already.)

YOU KNOW YOU'RE ADDICTED TO 24 WHEN....

...'Dammit!' is the only word you know.

...you make the Chloe!face in times of aggravation.

...you know what a Chloe!face is.

...you expect a major event to take place every hour in your life.

...you are always in a hurry and screaming 'we're running out of time!'

...you see a bit player in 24 on another show and go 'they were in 24!'

...you want to have children only so you can name them after someone on the show.

...you are always suspicious of your co-workers being the mole.

...you expect every woman you see with Kiefer Sutherland to suffer after they sleep with him.

...you can think of a thousand different ways to get someone to tell you what you want to know.

...you will never look at a wet towel the same way again.

...you are offended when people claim Obama was the first black president. Hello, PALMER!

This gift basket was donated for a fundraiser for the charity TEAMSTACIE. It includes; EPISODE #1 SCRIPT AUTOGRAPHED BY THE PRODUCERS, HAT, BOOK, SIXE LARGE T-SHIRT, AND COFFEE MUG. The charity was set up for Stacie Schifino who found out she has breast cancer in 2009 and has been going through chemotherapy and radiation. All money and items donated go directly to Stacie to help pay for medical bills. You're welcome to check out her website that her many loving friends made for her by googling TEAMSTACIE. There's information about her as well as video and press coverage of the Los Angeles fundraiser which brought out many friends and celebrities to help out this special person. All items were donated from the celebrities in the music and movie industry or their friends not a memorabilia store, therefore there isn't a certificate of authenticity, sorry. THANK YOU!

Some jokes I found, describing the epic badassness of Bauer. :D


1.If you wake up in the morning, it’s because Jack Bauer spared your life.

2.Upon hearing that he was played by Kiefer Sutherland, Jack Bauer killed Sutherland. Jack Bauer gets played by no man.

3.If Jack Bauer was in a room with Hitler, Stalin, and Nina Meyers, and he had a gun with 2 bullets, he’d shoot Nina twice.

4.Jack Bauer killed 93 people in just 4 days time. Wait, that is a real fact.

5.Jack Bauer got Hellen Keller to talk.

6.Jack Bauer was never addicted to heroin. Heroin was addicted to Jack Bauer.

7.Jack Bauer’s favorite color is severe terror alert red. His second favorite color is violet, but just because it sounds like violent.

8.1.6 billion Chinese are angry with Jack Bauer. Sounds like a fair fight.

9.If Jack says “I just want to talk to him/her” and that him/her is you… well amigo, you’re f*cked.

It's way hours in the morning, at the start of another day and already things are a mess; people are dying and others having sex. That's right to the last part and that would involve President Hassan's daughter and Tarin; The President's once personal adviser. I don't know how some find the time in the midst of a crisis? Probably love takes your mind away from everything, and she surely didn't want to have her fathers voice in her head before she met up with her boyfriend, then considered a fugitive. It's also funny how her loyalty changed from her father to her boyfriend in the matter of a few hours. That just goes to show how much the heart could play with your head.

President Hassan had a lot more on his plate; firstly discovering his brother tried to have him assassinated and then to be killed later the next day. That's a lot for one person to tolerate. I didn't believed his brother would have made it out alive anyway, that scene where he tried to run away was pathetic on his part, as though he deliberately tried to have himself killed. I suppose his recklessness was pointed out the moment he tried to run away, barely knocking his partner; then considered his...

Renee: "Jack I don't know how to say this, so I'm just going to say it, cause I need to make sure that I'm not misunderstanding, but when you say that 'I have you' "

Jack: "I meant it like it sounded"

Renee: "So now what do we do"

Jack: "We figure it out"

Was it just me, or did you gather from that conversation that there was just more to it, like we missed an entire chapter on Renee and Jack. I hardly doubt Jack would have been so callous to the security officer and the woman interrogating Renee. Jack was willing to choke her..., risking a possible confinement, it's a wonder she didn't press charges. I am concerned about Renee and her past and her condition that led her to that point of ruthless murder. It still manages to fall on Hastings.

Hastings establishes his weak character as each hour grows. He's fearful, lacks the decent spontaneity and common sense that a leader should have. We learn that he was placed in his position by Rob Weiss; he himself proves to be poor in judgment when it came to selection of 'heads'. Their solution to everything is put the blame on...

Things became serious for me during that torture scene with Jack. That's two times for the day already not so? I believe Jack should have gone with Kim, and have someone else be the hero for their country. At that point when the torturer stuck his finger into Jack's wound, everything became squirmy. I am just tired of Jack suffering relentlessly. What seemed to be a waste, was that it lead him to nothing, the rods were gone and that only meant another 24 runaround of 'tag' where everyone becomes a suspect and the chase is always ongoing.

Everything just felt like an eye roller at this point. From the moment Jack got the better of his torturer, to the point where he surprised Bazhaev-after he himself proved to be a worthy villain, to be defeated so easily was a real shame, by a table being thrown on him non-the-less. Did Jack not expect to be tortured by these men, they obviously would not have trusted him to book a deal. Bazhaev was smart, he figured that Jack was a cop(not really-retired) and not because he looked like one exactly, but because of his style and approach to making a deal, it lacked the necessary finesse of a businessman. They didn't even try to do a...

I am certain the correct security measures could have been placed, to ensure Renee didn't flip as far off as she did; gutting Vladimir times over until he suffered his death, then springing the last plunge in Jack. What was Hastings thinking having Renee invest her life into a dangerous project like that again? He refrained from officially evaluating her capacity to get the job done efficiently, without any mishap. I can tell you one thing, Renee's slip is on Hastings' tab. Jack tried to warn him several times of her condition and he just 'took it under consideration', which is all he seems to be doing lately.

Hastings is not capable handling his 'head' tasks, he seems to be flawed; lacking the necessary leadership skills. He should have taken full responsibility over Renee, other than leave her to hang for the dogs and ripped apart. Jack knew Renee on a close level, it was Hastings' job to listen to him and develop a plan B. Hastings was well willing to have Renee take a bullet and have some slim-ball roll over her for the sake of results, without any sense of remorse or empathy.

Renee and Jack share a calm embrace...
Who else thought it was fun watching Chloe and Janis battle it out over who was smarter?
It was even more painful watching Jack use Tony's face as a punching bag.

Jack - "Why did you betray me"

It was sad though, I keep hoping for them to say something like 'Tony's been undercover this entire time, he's really not the bad guy, killing Larry was for his cover, or even this League of his is really good', but that would be naive don't you think?

Speaking of the League, they mentioned something about their 'Operatives watching Kim'. How big is this organization that they could recruit operatives to train? What does this League stand for?

Obviously they wouldn't be showing us Kim Bauer going home safely to her husband and child, that would be crazy! ...and boring. Her life must be threatened.

Another 24 cliche, to use the ones you love against you. It happened to Jack, with Kim and Terri already, to Tony with Michelle wait and to Michelle with Tony!

Jack and Renee work well together!
In eager anticipation from last week's betrayal, I awaited the Jack and Tony cliffhanger; how was Tony going to 'handle' Jack now that Jack knew of his deception?
It was either Jack's life would be in danger (however short), or Tony would have to head for high ground, because his cover was blown and it wouldn't be too long till Jack revealed Tony's treachery.

I found it amusing; watching Jack struggle to get the words out:
"T-Tony's T-Turned"...

It reflected his disbelief towards his old friend actually turning. Tony was actually going to pull that trigger, he was really going to kill Jack! Kind of hard to absorb in all at once.

When Jack broke the news to Chloe, she bore a sense of denial. I don't blame her, how do explain the undercover gig he did with Bill, the friendships he took years to build, just *poof* gone!
...but Jack was convincing enough right?
"He tried to kill me Chloe, he's Bad!" That meant 'don't argue with me I know what I am talking about!'

"What is Tony Planning to do?... We already know he's lost Jack as a friend"






Carlos Bernard (Tony Almeida) deserves credit for his ability to convince viewers that he has gone over to the bad side... if he was ever good at all.





Last week I wondered how they were going to explain Tony's sudden 'bad boy' turn and I must admit it was believable at that. It even turned out better than I'd imagined it would.
It wasn't a surprise that Tony shot himself; why would Galvez (The Shooter) kill Larry and leave Tony alive 'in good condition'!

Despite all the other plots; Hodges, Jack an Kim, I think this episode really dealt with Larry's death which was rather a graphic appeal when the camera was placed on his lifeless body, smothered to death (unknown to the Medics at the time)...

I really missed Larry here, I really didn't like him, but he was missed. His death was mercilessly committed, like he'd been stabbed in the back and blinded from one side. It was really Renee that made me let out a sigh of grief (Thumbs up to Annie Wersching for giving us a beautiful performance)....

24 reminds me of a roller coaster ride; there are your your ups and downs, twists and turns and just when you think the ride is over it just takes you for another spin.

I know I stretched this one a bit, but you know what I mean.

We all know 24; there are 24 hours, which means 24 episodes and so far we've reached the 18 hour with 6 more hours hanging in the balance.

It all sounds a bit calculated but that is just how it feels.

I knew when Hodges easily met his defeat so early in the chapter, there had to be another twist.

Imagine Hodges boldly confronting the President, bragging on about protecting the same country he threatened to destroy...

He was actually amusing in the white house, imagining his upper hand, shoving missiles and a deadly virus up the Presidents sleeve. Still, after all he went through just to get the President to agree on his terms, giving him second chair to the President. I felt his capture was ... just to easy. I laughed at his rantings, trying to justify the prosecution of people; kill one to save thousands. In other words kill thousands just so that he could have a conversation at...

Jack Bauer's day has only begun...
Grrr, did you find yourself grinding your teeth and clasping your hands together in the hope of knocking out the bad guys...

That is 24 for you, and that is the way I felt at the end of this installment; delved into every detail, anticipating that the good nature of man would prevail and men like Hodges are put away!

***CONTAINS SPOILERS***

24 officially has the formula for a good adrenaline rush. It's hard to imagine the days Jack Bauer has had in his lifetime and this day seems to be sucking his life out of him... literally. I eagerly anticipated this installment after last week's hanger... military turning on the government (A President's nightmare), especially when the hand you fed for decades finally decides to bite your finger or the entire hand in the process.

So how were government officials going to defend themselves against an entire army; threatening to fire if they didn't leave their premises? They really had them cornered and defenseless. I applauded Jonas Hodges for his stage performance ranting on about the empty building, abusing his military power; it always takes the ravings of a madman to make you...

Do you think you could predict what happens next, after this installment?

24 is one of the few series which keeps you attached from beginning to end and which maintains it's top five position in my book weekly.


***CONTAINS SPOILERS***

Each hour seems to be nerve wrecking as Jack goes from being hunted like an animal to being infected with a deadly nerve virus and Jack does this 'all for his country'. Doesn't the world need more people like him? Then again over time Jack feels like he has nothing to live for, could this be his big break?

This segment opens with the continued hunt for Jack's head on the platter as he is assumed to be a murderous felon. Still Jack pursues the only lead on Starkwood, the only useful piece of information he got from the Mayor, before he met his demise. As Larry realizes that there was a third party at the Mayor's house and Jack isn't the psychopathic killer he imagined him to be, he rings Renee to gain some more perspective on Jack's whereabouts; it's about time.
