The basics: Jack Bauer works for the US government. He’s the head of their anti-terrorist cell in LA, and he has 24 hours to achieve his mission...and protect his loved one, who are also being targeted by the terrorists.
Main characters: Kiefer Sutherland (Jack Bauer), Kim Rayer (Audrey Raines), Mary Lynn Rajskub (Chloe O’Brian), Carlos Bernard (Tony Almeida), Gregory Itzin (Charles Logan), James Morrison (Bill Buchanan)
Why we love it: The concept of real time is what makes this series work so well – aside from the suspense that keeps you guessing right till the end. There are no fillers and everything’s linked…24 keeps you right on the edge with all the betrayals and repercussions. Jack will stop at nothing to save his precious daughter Kim.
Watch it with: Anyone! Like Prison Break, 24 is just as addictive for guys as it is for the girls.
