I liked 24, but sometimes the writing annoyed me in that you could kind of see the seams showing. The main thing is that the plot is constructed in such a way that there's only ONE good lead at any time. As soon as Jack gets the clue he needs to find the NEXT lead, the guy he's talking to now is guaranteed to kill himself or be shot by the enemy or escape. In Jack's world, you can never get some testimony, go check it out, and then come back to ask the same guy more questions later. You need to get ALL THE ANSWERS right NOW.

In the real world, an agency like CSU has lots of investigators following lots of leads and each making little bits of progress, not one guy who does everything himself. And the bad guys tend to be morons, not criminal masterminds. But as pure escapism goes, it's not bad.
