Continuity mistake: We see Palmer at the start make the decision not to use the word occasion. When he does, the woman who is writing his speech has her hand off the pad or much further up the pad depending on the angle. (00:03:05)

Character mistake: When Jack subdues Mason he proceeds to check his pulse to check Mason is still alive. When taking the pulse however Jack uses his thumb. This is not how a pulse is checked, as the thumb has it's own pulse and would therefore give Jack's pulse instead of Mason's. Being ex-Delta Jack would know this and not make the simple mistake.

7:00 P.M.-8:00 P.M. - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: The 6:00PM-7:00PM episode ends when it is still light outside. The 7:00PM-8:00PM episode begins when it is completely dark (no sunset/dusk/twilight) The show is supposed to be in "real-time" but as the sun goes down it gradually gets darker, it does not just become dark from one second to the next. Also, the California presidential primary takes place in June. It is not even close to dark at 7pm in June.

7:00 A.M.-8:00 A.M. - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Jack stops at the bus station to get a bag, we see a shot of Jack's car from the point of view of the guy who has the bag. You can see a quite big camera inside the car on the left side. When we see the reverse shot from inside of the car, the camera is gone. (00:05:55)

Continuity mistake: During season one of 24, Jack answers his mobile to Gaines and we see footage of Jack on a CCTV camera. The CCTV footage shows medical staff moving, yet when they cut back to the camera in the hall the medical staff are in different places, they keep changing places and keep disappearing and re-appearing and the CCTV footage is about two seconds ahead of the footage in the corridor. (00:31:00)

Plot hole: Peter Kingsley is shot and killed by a man in a helicopter just as he is about to kill Jack. Kingsley would definitely have heard the helicopter approaching.

11:00 P.M.-12:00 Midnight - S1-E24

Visible crew/equipment: At around 11:30pm, just when Jack is preparing to take his first shots at the Drazens as they are running towards the speedboat, you can see a cameraman/technician (wearing a face shield), and a TV monitor behind Jack's head.

9:00 P.M.-10:00 P.M. - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: In the previous hour, Pattie has long straight hair down to her shoulders. We see this all the way through, even at the very end. Yet at the start of episode 22, when she is now at the party a mere 10 minutes later, her hair is very much shorter. There is no way she would be able to get ready for the party in that time, let alone have her hair cut.

Andre Drazen: If Plan A fails you go to Plan B, not Plan A recycled.
