  Weakest series

| | See all JPMurtagh's reviews (33)

Undoubtedly the weakest series of 24 out of the eight but still decent enough television. Series was 5 was possibly the best but the writers definitely had a bad day at the office with this. The explanation of the sinister characters at the end of season 5 are laughable as it turns out that Jacks brother and father were involved in the assassination of David Palmer. Rediculous idea but once you get about half way and you stop laughing at how silly that is the last half improves. Thankfully season 7 returns to form.

  24 looses it

| | See all miamifan's reviews (55)

24 has for the most part been consistently fantastic up until this season. The stories seem ridiculous, the torture over the top, the characters rubbish and some very annoying, the action is good but has been done before. This season proved that 24 needed a change in direction and thankfully Season 7 delivered. That all said, it is enjoyable in places particular in the middle of the season!

  Good, but always the same stuff

| | See all beethere's reviews (11)

The season itself is really good, as usual. The problem is that it's always the same stuff. Almost the same situations of the previous seasons. You'll find always the bombs, the tortures, the conspiracies within the white house (and of course within the secure presidential antinuclear bunker), the conspiracies within CTU. Kiefer Sutherland is a real good actor, but his acting is the same almost all the time. And, as usual, as soon as he's going to find something or save someone, something happens. This is way too exagerate...If you really love this series, buy it, but if you're not sure (and a little bit bored) don't...

  jacks day of reckoning

| | See all latterday's reviews (4)

a lot of reviewers have slated this season. the thing i love about 24 is its never afraid to enter new territory. in season six it does just that. not only does jack bauer have to face his inner deamons. he also have to take on his own family and have to come to terms with what his girlfreind has sacraficed to rescue him. give me more if all drama today was like this id be glued to the tv instead of NEVER WATCHING IT. ROLL ON SEASON SEVEN

  Great Season.... buy it!

| | See all ashman88's reviews (7)

I disagree with the reviews that have gone before, although there is some deja vu it is inevitable seeing as its a counter terrorist unit and the main character is working for them! The series starts with a bang! and the pace of the show is good and keeps the viewer hooked. It is slower in pace than other series but this doesn't take away from the action that fans come to love. All I can say is bring on Series 7!

  Not the best, but still a great season.

| | See all DaveFaz's reviews (182)

Once again, jack is launched into another hectic 24 hours to catch a group of terrorists who threaten the US. There is a strong feeling of déjà vous in this season, the story is in many ways just too similar to the previous season, and it also lacks the edge of your seat tension that previous seasons had. Having said that, it concludes the main story half a dozen episodes before the end to pursue another storyline that neatly brings conclusion to the "outstanding" issues in Jack's life, which at least breaks the similarity with previous seasons. It's not as fast and edgy, but it's still a great show, and well worth the almost giveaway price that it's selling for a the moment.

  High points and low points

| | See all gazy2k4's reviews (7)

Just finished this Season recently, and overall found it quite entertaining. It started excellently and ended the same way I felt. The stuff in the middle went from gripping to repetitive. But there is plenty in this Season to warrant a purchase. Not the best Season, but also not the worst.

  Not just the one plot & so much better than 24 at its worst

| | See all NethLyn's reviews (18)

I deliberately waited for the annual price reduction to get Series 6 for £17.99, but I really don't know what people are complaining about calling Series 6 the worst season ever - do they not remember Series 3 with its barely daytime-soap-opera-quality B plots? Only the main storyline was any good and the rest was padding until the very end.

Series 6 does repeat one major event from earlier in 24's history but with greater consequences, develops another character from previous seasons to a much greater degree and continues the theme of Jack and family just like the first two seasons. The overall political sabre-rattling between the superpowers is also well written and acted. There's one event that's repeated for the third time and that grates a little but I enjoyed the rest.

Other than Series 1, Overall I have enjoyed the 4th series as second best, this latest season is on a par with series 2 or 5 but simply ends one plot and begins another rather than padding out the one story. Ironically, the writers' strike might be the best thing to happen to the show, it'll give more time to make series 7 something new. The ending is much calmer than in previous years because the biggest fireworks happened earlier, but there's nothing wrong with some emotion rather than just slam bang action throughout the entire 18 hours.

  Let down

| | See all Schematic's reviews (1)

I felt really let down by this season. Seems to me like the writers got really lazy and just decided to use past storylines and plots to fill a season. When you watch it, you find yourself saying.... " hasn't this happened before?" I know we need to take a lot of the storylines with a big pinch of salt but the Saxa manufacturing plant wouldn't provide enough for this Season! I'm going to stick with it and will be just as excited about Season 7 as I have been previously. I hope the writers deliver.
