2001-2014, 9 Seasons
Mentioned in Season 3, ep 13

High-octane action ride which, over the course of each season, sees one-man-army Kiefer Sutherland choke-hold people into submission in order to save Western civilisation from a range of bad guys. Each season sees the action take place over 24 'real time' hours, with convenient ad-break sized gaps taking care of details like commutes and toilet breaks. 

The real-time gimmick can feel like a constraint, but the knowingly over-amplified action and drama will soon blow you away. How many of Jack's bad days you make it through will depend on your tolerance for bona-fide thrill rides with little time for nuance, subtlety or *GETS PUT IN CHOKEHOLD*

*Doesn't fight it*
