Overview

The third outing of Fox's real-time drama series 24 once again follows the adventures of Kiefer Sutherland's rough-and-tumble Agent Jack Bauer of the U.S. government's Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU). Many familiar faces are along for the ride, including Jack's daughter, Kim (Elisha Cuthbert), fellow CTU agents Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard) and Michelle Dessler-Almeida (Reiko Aylesworth), and President David Palmer (Dennis Haysbert), while a number of new characters have been introduced. Among the newcomers are Chase Edmunds (James Badge Dale), a young CTU agent who has been dating Kim without Jack's knowledge, and Wayne Palmer (D.B. Woodside), the president's brother and new Chief of Staff. The story this time around centers on a deadly biological weapon that a terrorist is threatening to release in Los Angeles. The mission to thwart the attack first takes Jack to Mexico where he'd been working undercover with a drug cartel and acquired an addiction to heroin. As the episodes continue, Jack attempts to trace the virus to the man behind the plot, and more than a few characters meet their demise. The fate of the Palmer administration hangs in the balance.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
In recent years, very few dramatic shows have captured the public fancy like 24, the televised equivalent of those old cliff-hanger movie serials that left their protagonists in life-threatening situations at the end of every installment. Having established itself previously with two superb seasons -- each telling a story that unfolds over a single day in one-hour increments -- the show began its third year with an even more ambitious story line. This time around, Counter Terrorism Unit agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) succumbs to the demands of narco-terrorists and breaks drug lord Ramon Salazar (Joachim De Almeida) out of prison to prevent the use of a biological weapon unwittingly smuggled into Los Angeles by one of Salazar's mules. As if that wasn't enough, President David Palmer (Dennis Haysbert), facing a tough reelection campaign, learns that his new lover may be implicated in an extortion plot. There are numerous subplots, one of which revolves around Bauer's trouble-prone daughter, Kim (Elisha Cuthbert), now working at CTU. Overall, the third season is marginally less satisfying than its predecessors, but only because the various parallel narratives are watered down with too many extraneous diversions. It still makes gripping entertainment, though, and there's no shortage of physical action and nail-biting suspense along with the political intrigue. The seven-disc collection will likely make history for one of the supplements: a ten-minute "prequel" to Season 4 that introduces new characters and bridges the between-seasons continuity gap. Primarily, it reveals that Bauer is transferred out of CTU, setting up his adversarial relationship with the unit's new chief. This little back-story is unique to the DVD box; the footage was shot with the collection in mind and won't be seen on air.
