Tv Season Info

Season 7 opens with über -agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) being grilled by a U.S. Senate subcommittee about his past actions, but the hearing's called off by an urgent request from the FBI: Bauer's needed to help stop former CTU comrade Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard), who's believed to be part of a plot directed against the nation. As the day progresses, the mission expands to include an attempt to ferret out corruption within the government; and to prevent a biological-weapon attack on American soil.

Critic Reviews for 24 Day 7

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (19)

All in all, 24 is off to another typically rousing start, with the fate of innocents abroad and at home in the balance.

Top Critic

24 is a significant cultural artifact because of the way it reflected (and sometimes exploited) post 9/11 anxieties, and for the energy and innovation it brought to the serialized drama format.

Wahhh, too much torture! Wahhh, CTU has no credibility! Wahhh, why is Jack always yelling? Wahhh, why is this all so boring? Wahhh! Torture! Wahhh! Did I mention wahhh?

Jan 11, 2009 | Full Review…

At its best, 24 has always had elements of the classic Westerns they don't make anymore. Now 24 is back, and so is its Western heart.

Jan 11, 2009 | Full Review…

24 makes a feint toward change, before getting back on the same old mechanical cowboy ride.

Jan 11, 2009 | Full Review…

This season delivers one whallop of a twist after another and just keeps going like a bullet.

Nov 27, 2018 | Rating: A | Full Review…

There's too much meandering as the president's family stumbles around various time-filling stories that just aren't compelling.

Nov 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Near the end of the run, the writers sprang one twist too many and tried to introduce the ultimate man-behind-the-man, undermining the excellent work that had gone before.

Nov 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Day 7 maybe lost the thread a bit with Jack's introspection, but it did make fine use of a more ripped-from-the-headlines story involving a Blackwater-esque shadow group.

Nov 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Fortunately for the audience, the show on which [Jack] struggles to save the republic is back on track after a season of misdirection followed by a year away.

Audience Reviews for 24: Day 7


Super Reviewer

Season 7 of 24 shakes things up by changing locations and bringing back old characters. While testifying before a U.S. Senate committee Jack Bauer is enlisted by the FBI to help take down a terrorist cell that's being run by Jack's former friend Tony Almeida, who has obtained a CIP override device that can remotely hijack airplanes. The change of setting to Washington D.C. and use of the FBI (instead of CTU) has a refreshing effect, and helps to make the show feel bigger and more intense. Annie Wersching, Janeane Garofalo, Kurtwood Smith, Tony Todd, and Jon Voight join the cast in recurring roles and deliver some very strong performances. And the writing is quite good as well, with some incredibly suspenseful and compelling storytelling. There are some problems, but overall 24: Season 7 is one of the best of the series.
