The Complete Idiot's Guide to


Jack Bauer is the head of CTU and has just reconciled with his estranged wife Teri after briefly having an affair with his assistant Nina. Unfortunately, Jack’s world goes to Hell when his stupid and annoying yet hot teenage daughter Kim gets mixed up with the wrong boys, and gets herself kidnapped by a terrorist group. Soon, these same terrorists nab Jack’s wife as well.

And why are they doing this? Because today is the day of the Presidential Primary, and somebody wants to assassinate presidential candidate David Palmer. This somebody eventually turns to be Dennis Hopper, playing a man who has major beef with both Bauer and Palmer which stem from events in the two men’s pasts. Things get even worse when it is revealed that Jack’s assistant Nina, who he thought had been helping him the whole time, is actually a mole working for Hopper’s character. In the end, Jack manages to save Palmer and kill Dennis Hopper. Unfortunately, though, he is unable to stop Nina from shockingly murdering his wife. (Full S1 ep guides at Fox)
