24 TV review: Anil Kapoor gets it right, but not perfect!
The new show also starring Tisca Chopra, Mandira Bedi, Neil Bhoopalam and others is well worth a watch and could be the start of a new wave of television programming and watching….
November 6, 2001. Jack Bauer has 24 hours to foil a terrorist plot, catch the bad guys and save the people, if not the world. Played by Kiefer Sutherland and supported by a cast that included Elisha Cuthbert, Dennis Haysbert, Mary Lynn Rajskub and others. Each season had 24 episodes and was narrated in real time. The show was a critical success and did well with the audiences too – it became the longest running series in the genre, in spite of some objections to the detailed depictions of torture and the simplistic portrayal of Muslims as the bad guys. It ended with its ninth season on May 24, 2010, a fitting date. Click here to read more
