24 premiered on FOX 20 years ago today (11/6/01)






24 premiered on FOX 20 years ago today. This is probably my favorite television series of all-time despite some of it's ridiculous stories and plots.

Right now I'm watching the 20 years of 24 virtual panel on Zoom and Jon Cassar, Joel Surnow, Sean Callery, Bob Cochran and Michael Loceff who were some of the main creative team of 24 are currently talking. They are talking about La Femme Nikita, which partly inspired 24. Kiefer Sutherland will appear on this event later today. This is actually a paid event, so I don't know if clips of this all-day panel will be available.


My favorite seasons are in this order:

1
2
3
5
7
9
4
8
6
Legacy


Did you watch the entire series? What were your favorite seasons?

Here are the early participants of the 1st panel and my view right now on Zoom. This is a good panel. These guys have a lot to say.

I had hoped that season 6 would've been set in China with how S5 ended. Wouldve been bad ass to see Jack break out of Prison and escape China with the help of Curtis or CTU spies working in the country Maybe there'd be a teeror threat Jack would stay in China to save the day while at tbe same time evading the Chinese government?

A big missed opportunity imo .

Re: 24 premiered on FOX 20 years ago today (11/6/01)

Carlo Rota who was the moderator of the 1st panel asked the panel what is the future of 24?

Joel Surnow answered and said he foresees it being revived by a completely different creative team with a new Jack in maybe a few years. But, Surnow said he's retired now and his co-creator Bob Cochran doesn't work that much anymore. Surnow has been out of the loop from Hollywood for years so he doesn't know anything. Sean Callery answered also and said, But Jack is in Russia, you gotta get him out of there?

I personally don't care for Surnow, it was good that he left the show after season 7.

Re: 24 premiered on FOX 20 years ago today (11/6/01)

I found my wife watching a random epsiode during a later season (4 or 5 perhaps). It caught my attention but I told her I'd rather watch it from the beginning so I knew the characters and backstory. I checked out the first couple of seasons from the library and it was probably our first experience truly binge watching...fond memories of agreeing to "one more episode" when it was well after midnight with both us of needing to be up early the next day. Once we caught up, we stuck with the approach of wating on the new season to be released on DVD or letting them stack up on the DVR so we could plow through them quickly.

I've watched the first season several times but really need to re-visit all the rest again. While some seasons weren't as strong, they all are enjoyable to me. I recall picking up the entire run in a fantastic deal at Best Buy (thanks to this forum) for something like $20-25. I also own the companion books and a few other books written about the show/series. So yep, probably my favoirte show of all-time as well when I combine the adrenaline rush from watching and the nostalgia of thinking back to seeing it for the first time.

The only season that I rewatched completely was season 8, which was one of the weaker seasons. I only did it because season 9 was about to air and it had been 4 years since 24 last aired.

I should probably rewatch season 1 at some point. It was my favorite season despite the midseason curve balls it took to fill episodes.

I had forgotten until seeing your post that Clarke and Berkeley were married.

Clarke and Berkeley talked in their panel about how they were secretly dating while on the show and then later announced their engagement.

Here is the participants of the CTU panel that aired about an hour ago. This was a fun panel. Louis Lombardi was hilarious. Kim Raver still looks really good after all these years and she shared a lot of interesting memories.

The current panel is the writers and 24 novelists talking.

One of the moderators asked Gary Newman, who was one of the FOX people who greenlit 24, about why the complete series isn't on Blu-Ray. He said he doesn't know as 24's rights are now owned by Disney and they don't really care about physical media.

The best decision FOX ever made with 24 was moving it to the new year and having it air for 24 straight weeks as opposed to the 2 to 3 week breaks.


Also, I'm sure you all knew this. One of the questions asked was if they had a whole season planned out and the answer was No. Bob Coachran said that they maybe had 5 to 6 episodes written and then they just made shit up as they went along.

I had no idea Xander and Sarah were married. Was wondering why they were in the same room.

Bauer family reunion. Kiefer's interview just wrapped. They talked for about 50 minutes. It was a good interview. The moderator asked Kiefer is Jack's story done? And he said I hope not. He would be open to another season if he gets presented a script.

The very end of the interview they brought in Leslie Hope and Elisha Cuthbert. Apparently Kiefer lives in Toronto.

I intended to join the zoom event, but my Norton antivirus flagged the gotellsomeone podcast website as a dangerous (red) website. And Chrome browser blocked the ď20 years of 24Ē website.

So I said F it, Iím not inputting my credit card on those websites

Anyways, I remembered the anniversary since Iím a super fan. Season 2 is my favorite, but season 5 is the best.

Collecting 24 stuff is one of my hobbies - autographs from conventions, the various media (DVDs, books, soundtracks, videogame), random toys, and my personal favorite - the on screen props.

24 is my favorite media franchise, now and forever!

The site is originated from Canada. As is the guy Ryan who is the host of this event. I got charged the fee with no issues. It was $30 Canadian that translates to about $24.

Right now is the villains panel. Nick Jameson, Adoni Maropis, Tzi Ma, Greg Ellis and Greg Itzen. Sean Callery is also there talking about the music he composed for the villains.

This has been great so far. Too bad it's a private event.

yea Chrome flagged one of the websites since it wasnít https secure. The Norton one probably flagged it for something similar, as obviously this event isnít a scam, but who knows if the webmaster setup the gotellsomeone website properly. Iím not an IT expert so I had to trust my antivirus and firewall.

Anyways, I am slightly jealous Iím missing the event. But not entirely, since I prefer in-person conventions. I want to expand my autograph collection. Damn pandemicÖ

My best in-person meet and greet was Annie Wersching (Renee Walker) at a local sporting event that hosted a 24 theme night.

The Villains of 24 just wrapped. It was a decent discussion. Tzi Ma didn't really say that much. Greg Ellis actually did the most talking.

The Ladies of 24 are now up. And yes that's Annie Wersching (Renee Walker)

Shohreh has such a sexy voice.

and fucking Greg Itzen. He won't log off. Nazneen Contractor was in season 8 and she's married to Carlo Rota (Morris O'Brien)

Did Daniel Dae Kim make an appearance? He played my favorite character, CTU Agent Tom Baker in seasons 2 and 3.

Was Freddie Prinze Jr. invited?

No Kim and No Prinze.

The ladies of 24 panel was pretty good. Sarah Wynter was star struck with Annie Wersching. Good chat.

They wrapped up with the Oval Office panel with Glenn Morshower, Itzen, Sprague Grayden, Geoff Pierson and Chris Diamantoupolis. Cherry Jones appeared on tape.

Overall great event. Man this was 9 hours long.

A lot of great memories shared. Jon Cassar appeared in every panel and he was great. He had so many stories.

After watching the event, I want to revisit the show again.

Re: 24 premiered on FOX 20 years ago today (11/6/01)

I still remember seeing the commercial for 24 back in 2001 and being intrigued. I didn't have a favorite TV show back then. I was a senior in high school at that time, so I'm amazed this show is still relevant today in pop culture. It could have easily just been cancelled after a couple seasons and forgotten about.

The moment I was hooked - when we realized Kim Bauer was being kidnapped during season 1

The moment it became my favorite TV show - when Jack rescues Teri and Kim from Ira Gaines' compound. That was so intense for any TV show at that time.

Re: 24 premiered on FOX 20 years ago today (11/6/01)

I remember I was at work in May 2002 when the season finale aired. DVRs weren't really around then and streaming TV didn't exist. So on my lunch break I watched the finale live and saw the big ending and I was shocked. I came back from my break and told my coworker Oh my God you have to see the ending!! She got really excited. This show sparked conversations with my coworkers. Now there's 1000 shows that no one watches on the same schedule. On one of the panels, they said the DVDs of 24 helped it grow an audience.
