The 9th season offers interesting characters, new and old, with lots of action, tough fights, surprising twists - and a excellent as usual represented by Kiefer Sutherland battle-hardened, uncompromising and crafty Jack Bauer.
My sense is that the series won by the shortening of 24 Episodes on 12: The action is not protracted, as in one way or another the previous season. After boredom one looks in vain here.
Special was fun to live another day in practice can be seen in one piece, because you can download the individual episodes, when you want. Me did not bother to see the whole thing in the original version with German subtitles. Except for the last episode we stayed the real-time concept.
As the season ends? Just as I had expected.
CONCLUSION: The best of all series is an extremely exciting TV highlight with only 12 episodes and in its 9th edition.
