You have been hearing for months that 24 is the best new series of the television season, but what exactly does that mean? It's been a strange and mostly lousy new fall season. Put it this way: The pilot for 24 is so daringly different, perfectly paced, well-acted and socially relevant that it makes up for all the other awful new series - almost. Nothing ever is going to make up for Bob Patterson, Emeril or Danny. 24, which stars Kiefer Sutherland as an agent in the government's Counter Terrorism Unit, tells its story in real time with the entire season of 24 episodes taking place in just one day. Tonight's pilot covers midnight to 1 a.m. on the day of the California presidential primary.

There's great fun to be had in seeing Michael Douglas and Kiefer Sutherland chew up the scenery (as well as their fellow actors) as Secret Service agents struggling to unravel a plot to assassinate the president. Too bad The Sentinel doesn't offer much more. Instead, the movie - based on a novel by Gerald Petievich - offers a setup that inexplicably goes away about halfway through, characters who seem to have missed much of their Secret Service basic training, atmosphere that doesn't really have to do with anything and way too many guys with machine guns within easy reach of the president of the United States.

The real-life affair Meg Ryan and Russell Crowe nurtured during the shooting of "Proof of Life" has made headlines. But on-screen romances that turn into real-world couplings are as old as the movie medium itself. Here's a partial list: Loretta Young and Clark Gable, "Call of the Wild" (1935). Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy carried on during and after several films together during the 1940s. Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart, "To Have and Have Not" (1944). Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood, "All the Fine Young Cannibals" (1960)

Alas poor Sherry, we hardly knew ye. The duplicitous and cunning ex-wife of President David Palmer on Fox-TV's 24, Sherry Palmer took two bullets in the abdomen at the end of last week's episode and, apparently, died. Fans of the show have been waiting three years for this moment, but now that it's finally come, we wonder how the show can go on. Evil villains come and go on 24. We've had Dennis Hopper playing a man who wanted Palmer killed, and, more recently, lesser known actors playing characters intent on setting off a nuclear bomb in Los Angeles or releasing viruses in major cities to cause the deaths of millions.

The cartooning in ''The Nutcracker Prince'' is almost crude, but the animated feature, based on the story by E.T.A. Hoffman, goes by in a hurry, and the very small children who attended an advance screening sat very still for it. That may be the ultimate test.The film, the first full-length animated feature to be done by Lacewood Productions in Canada, also provides us with a very clear vision of the plot. Those who have sat through the ballet without knowing what was going on will know what is going on in the film.

The Wild is simply the latest in what has been a years-long creative holding pattern for the animators at Disney, who seem to have lost the ability to come up with anything new and fresh. The only difference here is that, while audiences may think they've seen movies like Chicken Little before, they'll know they've seen The Wild before. Because they have. Like last year's Madagascar, The Wild is about a zoo animal that mistakenly finds its way back to Africa and the wild, and about a group of zoo friends who set out to rescue and bring it back to the safety of its cage.

Jack Bauer returns to prime-time TV tonight, but I've got some bad news for him and the producers of 24. I fear the culture has passed them by, and the anti-terrorist thriller is never again going to be the must-see phenomenon it was once upon a time when up to 20 million viewers a week hung on every click of the digital clock and scene of stomach-flipping torture. The problem isn't so much that Season 6 became such a credibility-straining muddle with Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) battling members of his own family that many viewers tuned the series out. The story arc and the audience erosion were bad enough, however, that Howard Gordon, executive producer of the series, acknowledged in a letter to critics accompanying the screener for tonight's film that he and his team tried to use the strike-interrupted schedule that kept 24 off the air last year to do a "creative reassessment" of the show.

The Wild [Disney] $30 Disney's computer-animated family film The Wild can perhaps best be described as Finding Nemo with fur and claws with a touch of Madagascar thrown in for good measure. Samson (voice of Kiefer Sutherland) the lion, a popular attraction at the New York Zoo, and his animal buddies must find a way to get to Africa, where his young cub son Ryan has been shipped accidentally. Extras are pretty skimpy -- a music video, a glimpse of Eddie Izzard ad-libbing during his recording sessions as his character Nigel the koala, and a few deleted scenes.

The following takes place between 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. There's a line of a hundred people outside the Sound Garden music store in Fells Point, on a Wednesday. In an age of digital music downloads, this is odd. Even stranger, several hundred more people are jammed inside the store. They are a notch cooler than the fans you'd find at a Star Trek convention, but just a notch. In a moment, it all becomes clear. A black Lincoln Town Car ba-bumps down the cobblestone street, stops in front of the store and discharges the coolest customer Sound Garden has maybe ever seen.

THE END OF THE TV SEASON begins this week and that means a certain kind of madness soon will descend upon our television screens. Beloved characters will die and story lines will take bizarre turns. Familiar casting lineups will be disrupted and long-time series shot down. A new online venture, which could transform the future of TV, will be launched. And it will seem as if there are new episodes of American Idol and Deal or No Deal airing every night of every week. May sweeps -- a 28-night programming blitz that marks the end of the network season and determines advertising rates (via audience measurements in 210 cities)

Entertainment when it's inspired can convince you of anything. Great operas make singing conversations seem normal. Committed rockers can sell nonsense lyrics. TV more than occasionally reaches its zenith in the most ridiculous of circumstances. How enduring are Green Acres and The Dukes of Hazzard? Great art, they may not be. But we can't stop watching. Into that club, we soon might welcome Prison Break. Fox kicks off the 2005-06 TV season tonight with an adventure drama almost surreal in its absurdity, even gag-inducing in the contrivances it expects you to swallow.
