Overview

The threat to the United States in Season 5's white-knuckle day is Russian separatists armed with weaponized nerve gas and led by Vladimir Bierko (Julian Sands). Inciting their ire is an arms and mutual defense treaty that Russian president Yuri Suvarov (Nick Jameson) plans on signing with the U.S. and duplicitous president Charles Logan (Gregory Itzin). As Day 5 begins, Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), who faked his own demise at the close of last season, is working at an oil refinery in California under the name Frank Flynn. He returns from his self-imposed exile to fight the good fight after an assassination rocks the nation and he finds himself framed for it and several other crimes. Jack is also reunited with former love interest Audrey Raines (Kim Raver), but tumult continues to follow them. Meanwhile at CTU, there's a new man brought in to oversee operations, Lynn McGill (Sean Astin), and once again, there's a mole in the ranks. A significant subplot centers on Christopher Henderson (Peter Weller), Jack's mentor-turned-nemesis who has information that can help Jack thwart the Russians. Another thread follows First Lady Martha Logan (Jean Smart), who grows increasingly disdainful of her husband's actions in office.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Bill Pearis
From the first minutes of the premiere episode, you can tell that the fifth season of Fox's groundbreaking "real time" drama is going to be a corker. This is the latest Worst Day Ever for former special agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), who faked his own death and walked off into the Mexican sunset at the end of 24's fourth season to avoid prosecution from the Chinese government. (Don't ask. It's complicated.) But he's forced out of hiding when the only people who know he's alive seem to be systematically targeted for assassination. These assassinations just happen to coincide with the signing of an anti-terrorism treaty between Russia and the United States, and it soon becomes apparent that the day's shocking events may well be connected to someone within the White House. Unfortunately, Jack doesn’t get much help from his previous employer, CTU, so once again, it's up to him to save the day. Of course, there are terrorists with non-specific European accents; torture-filled interrogations; leaky canisters of nerve gas; unexpected deaths; Jack's repeated shouts of "Damn it!" and other signature 24 moments, but Season 5 breaks from the "beat the clock/stop the terrorist" formula that was beginning to wear thin after four variations. The main credit belongs to Gregory Itzin, whose delicious, Emmy-nominated performance as spineless, duplicitous president Charles Logan may just have you yelling at your television. Equally good are Jean Smart as the conspiracy theory-wielding first lady, and Mary Lynn Rajskub, who has become the series' secret weapon as curt computer geek Chloe O'Brien. Also figuring into this web of intrigue: Sean Astin, Julian Sands, Peter Weller, C. Thomas Howell, and the toothy William Devane. 24 has never failed to deliver pulse-pounding thrills, but Season 5 is the freshest and most enjoyable since Season 1 -- maybe even the best to date. Even if you think you know what's going to happen, you ain't seen nothing yet.

I'm not going to lie I LOVE 24 but season 5 was not my favorite maybe because so many of my favorite characters died(Palmer,Michelle,Tony,). It was still good though.The way it ends made me jump out of my chair and scream and then laugh at how addicted I am.Stop laughing at me.If you are a 24 fan you will relate to how I feel when a season ends like seaon 5 ended.I HIGHLY recommend this show to everyone.You MUST start at season 1 if you want to know what's going on in the other seasons.BEWARE YOU WILL GET ADDICTED.I don't know anyone who has watched this show and has not become addicted.I introduced my friend to season 7 two weeks ago and that's all she will talk about now.LOL!!.She has become sooo addicted that she wants to write her own 24 story.As of right now it is 30 pages long.WATCH THIS SHOW!!!YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.Well you might if your kids come up to you and ask for dinner and you tell them this "Hold on I have to finish this episode".LOL!!!.Once the tv is on and on Fox your mind drives you crazy.I missed the end of season seven so I still have nine episoded until finishing the supposed to be most "EXPLOSIVE"season yet. Get this show.It is the best one on tv. 24'S BIGGEST FAN

u need to see 24 to belive it. This is the best show on tv
Guest More than 1 year ago
This show is the reason that I upgraded my cable service to include a DVR! The writing and acting are first-rate and if some of the plot lines seem a little far-fetched, well, who cares? In season 5, some well-loved characters meet their end, but you know that this is a great television show when you keep watching even after a favorite character goes to that great CTU office in the sky! Can't wait until season 6 begins.

I fear I am so addicted to this season of 24 that I may just try to watch the 40 min episodes back to back and forget about the sleep loss. not a good idea. It is very suspenseful and engaging.

This great season of the best show out there was its most explosive so far. It has five Emmys this year to prove it, including Outstanding Drama as well as Kiefer Sutherland for Best Actor--and they were a long time coming. Twist after nail-biting twist keeps you wanting to tune in each week. Bring on Season 6!

Apart from his cell phone never needs charging and his pda never gets broken in the fights. Jack Bauer/24 is probably is the best show on the box right now. Very unpredictable plots even if you try hard to figure out whats coming next. The sound track and the music is technocentric.The fragmented screen pictures and the sound makes all the more to look/hear.You must try and listen with "surround sound".

I was kind of skeptical about season 5 of 24 because the past couple of seasons were repetitive: such as there is a threat to the nation and every one is trying to stop jack bauer from breaking all the rules he was bound to. However, while Jack has still some famous lines and he is expected to save the nation from a terrorist threat, this season was a pleasant surprise. While I miss some of the main characters, season 5 was well put together. Jack is no longer bound to CTU therefore, he is free to break any rule and the people after him aren't after him because he broke protocol but because he is a serious threat to their operation. While this season may be some repetitive in some areas, there are several twists and turns that you don't suspect. I rate this is one of Kiefer Sutherland's performances!

24 is far and away the best drama on tv. Seasons 1-4 I would rate 5 stars. I took one star off because I found it unbelievable that one government agent could trap the President of the United States. With this show you never know what to expect and no character is safe.
