Designated Survivor

Commander-in-Chief - S1-E14

Factual error: The building shown between the stated times is located in Japan instead of the US/Washington DC as suggested by the actions in the scene. This is proven by by the Chinese characters in the dark-gray concrete wall in the lower left side of the frame, as well as the red and blue colored circular road signs in the lower far right of the frame which are not in use in the US but in this combination unique to Japan. The street furniture, such as the road markings, the vegetation and the buildings also resemble Tokyo. (00:06:55)

Show generally

Factual error: When in Amsterdam, there are a number of mistakes with Hanna's car. First off, it's a brand new model, but it has a numberplate from a series six years ago. Second, that numberplate is a flat sticker, while Dutch numberplates are made with very thick plastic letters. Third, the registration is 87-UYM-3, which wouldn't be used, given that Dutch numberplates don't use vowels.

Show generally

Factual error: At the beginning of the show the name South Carroll Parish, Louisiana appears to indicate where the opening scene is happening. South Carroll Parish does not exist. It has to be either East or West.

Seth Wright: Mr. President.
Tom Kirkman: You don't need to get up every time I walk into a room. I'm not the Queen.
Seth Wright: No, sir. Virtually no resemblance.

Tom Kirkman: What do you want me to do, General, declare war? Why not. 40 minutes ago, they showed me the nuclear football. I guess I've had it long enough to try it out.

The First Day - S1-E2

Tom Kirkman: D.C. police called the White House switchboard, wanted to confirm that you worked here. What happened this morning?
Seth Wright: What happened in Michigan. What always happens. When people don't know who their enemy is, they start with people who look like me.

More quotes from Designated Survivor

Season 1 generally

Question: If there were two designated survivors (Kirkman and Hookstraten) then why was it decided so quickly that Kirkman would be president instead of Hookstraten?

The_Iceman

Answer: While both parties picked a designated survivor, only Kirkman was a cabinet member and in line for succession. Hookstraten was the Majority Whip leader for the House of Representatives and not in line for succession. She would only have become president if something happened to Kirkman.
