YOU CAN DISCUSS HERE ALL ABOUT THE SERIES FROM 24...

24 is a thriller that purports to be shown in "real-time," with each minute of airtime corresponding to a minute in the lives of the characters. This real-time nature is emphasized by an on-screen digital clock appearing from time to time—this corresponds roughly to the minute of the broadcast hour, factoring in commercials.

The writers often take advantage of the real-time nature of the show by keeping the cast members hair cut every two weeks and by having the characters place time windows on certain events such as terrorist threats, thus strongly hinting that the attack/event will occur before the end of the episode. This has resulted many times in people saying that the event will occur "within the hour," the vast majority of the time.

The action switches between different locations tracing parallel adventures of different characters involved in the same overarching plot. The result is long sections of unseen narrative for each character. A main character might only be seen for a quarter of an episode's overall running time. The notice preceding each episode announcing that "events occur in real time" was only included in the first three episodes of the first season, as well as the premieres of the second and third seasons .
Over the course of the hour, three minutes are added to the clock during commercial breaks to allow time for the opening "previously on 24" segments and the preview of the next episode over the closing credits.
