24 Boxset – all 8 seasons
With the release of 24 the movie still some distance away you may need to refresh yourself of past events from previous days. You may also be a complete 24 newbie and haven’t seen a single episode. If this is you then you may want to grab the entire 24 season box set on Bly ray or DVD.
With 8 seasons, 24 episodes a season plus the odd TV special (24 Redemption) this is a bumper box set that will takes a while to get through. I sometimes wish I could go back in time when I had never seen an episode of 24 so that I had the fun of starting all over again. Luckily 24 makes for great repeat viewing.
The 24 complete box set comes with lots of great extras. All the usual commentaries are included as well as deleted scenes. Some of my personal favourite extras are the 24 season prelogues. These are short clips that act as teasers before a season. Season 5 had a good preview with us seeing bearded Jack Bauer trying to remain undetected whilst the authorities continue to believe he’s a dead man. In one prequel you’ll also hear Jack swear.
Here’s a quick summary of some of the best extras you’ll get with this bundle:
Some of the extras will even hint at secrets for the new 24 movie. A lot of people are wondering will Chloe be in the 24 movie? Well in Season 8′s blu ray extras we find out what happened to her character after season 8. Was she murdered? Arrested? Or did she go on the run?
Below I list most of the 24 extras you can expect to find on the DVD:
