Watch 24


24 was an American action series that aired on Fox from November 6th, 2001 through May 24th, 2010. During its nine year run on Fox, 24 featured many well known actors including Kiefer Sutherland, Elisha Cuthbert, Dennis Haysbert, Mary Lynn Rajskub, among others.24 centers around the work of C.T.U.: Los Angeles (Counter Terrorism Unit) and the agents that work there. C.T.U. acts a division of the Department of Defense, intended to specialize in prevention of terrorist attacks and apprehension of known terrorist from around the world. Jack Bauer (Sutherland) is the main character of 24, Bauer operates out of C.T.U.: Los Angeles as a senior field agent, and temporarily as the head of C.T.U.

Jack Bauer serves as an indestructible agent who never fails to save the day. Bauer, however, quickly develops a reputation within C.T.U., The Department of Defense, and The White House as an entirely untrustworthy, loose-cannon. Bauer is a man seemingly intent on pushing himself, the boundaries of morality, and often the law far beyond normal limits.

During the eight seasons of 24, Jack Bauer, with the help of C.T.U., The Department of Defense, local police forces, and The White House, managed to prevent multiple assassination attempts, and many nuclear attacks. While working undercover with a group of drug dealers Bauer became heavily addicted to drugs, much to the dismay of his fellow agents, his superiors, and his daughter Kim Bauer (Cuthbert), who later becomes an agent at C.T.U.

Each season of 24 told the story of one 24 hour period, with each episode running an hour long. The first six seasons took place mainly in and around Los Angeles, California, then traveled to Washington, D.C. for the seventh season, finally concluding with the eighth season which took place in New York City. Between seasons six and seven, the makers of 24 created a television movie, 24: Redemption, which took place in South Africa.

Typical episodes of 24 followed key government officials including four presidents throughout the eight seasons, terrorists involved in the would-be attacks of the day, C.T.U. agents, and of course, Jack Bauer. One aspect of 24 that made it an immensely thrilling show was that all of the events took place in real-time, guaranteed to keep viewers on the edge of their seats.
