Stars: Kieffer Sutherland, Elisha Cuthbert, Carlos Bernard, Sarah Clarke

The Series: Harder hitting and more compelling, the series 3 box set promises stacks more explosions and cliff hangers. As usual, there's more twists and turns than Oliver Reed ever had on a big night out, and we've moved on another three years... Kim is now working at CTU (well, they had to get her in there somehow - and the kidnap/escape plotlines were wearing a bit thin, weren't they?), there's a smattering of new faces and a whole new crisis about to hit LA. It may well cost you a whole wedge of cash, but this really is essential viewing.
