6:00 P.M.-7:00 P.M. - S1-E19

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.

Continuity mistake: When Jack drives to 18166 San Fernando Road he stops the car, gets out and leaves his phone in the car - you can see the green light of the phone's screen - he didn't reach for it. However, when Teri calls him, he has the phone in his pocket.

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 Jacks 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.

5:00 A.M.-6:00 A.M. - S1-E6

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.

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.

2:00 A.M.-3:00 A.M. - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: At about 2:15am, when Jack's talking to Nina about the passenger list on the plane, we see a shot of Jack in the top left, and Nina in the top right. Because it's real time they're both meant to match up - we're watching them both at the same time. In each shot we can see the back of the other's head, but while Jack is looking down and around in the left-hand shot, in the right-hand shot his head is staying perfectly still.

Continuity mistake: When Jack is outside Dunlop Plaza, talking to Nina on the phone, he says, "Nina, it's Jack." But the transcript Tony looks at a few seconds later reads, "Nina, it's me, Jack."

Continuity mistake: Shortly after the clock display reads 01:44, the time is shown again... and it's 01:42.

00:29:20 - 00:30:25

6:00 A.M.-7:00 A.M. - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When Senator Palmer is binding his tie in front of the mirror, he pulls the broad part of it completely through the loop of the tie around his neck. Than it cuts to a close-up and the broad part's part-way through the loop again.

11:00 A.M.-12:00 Noon - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: In the shot near the end where you see Jack's family running away from the van, Kim is wearing sneakers. But until now, making abstraction of the other continuity error a few episodes earlier, she was wearing sandals. It can be seen in another scene afterward.

12:00 Midnight-1:00 A.M. - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Jack is on the phone with his wife as he is entering the CTU building, when you can see him in two different shots, he is holding the phone differently in each shot.

Day 4: 11:00 P.M.-12:00 A.M. - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: When Jason and his wife are trying to escape from Marwan, they run through a corridor filled with water puddles. A few seconds later, one of Marwan's men goes through the same corridor to follow them, but none of the puddles had any ripples, which they should have considering the amount of water and time elapsed.

3:00 A.M.-4:00 A.M. - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: The show claims to be in real time, and although those viewers who aren't too eagle-eyed will argue that it is, there is undisputed evidence in this episode that it isn't accurate. After the final ad break, the clock reads 03:52. At least two minutes later, when we see Teri and "Alan York" turn a corner in their car, the clock is displayed at the bottom of the screen, and it is still 03:52. The same sort of thing happens earlier in the episode, when there is a good ten minutes or so between when the clock says 03:26 and when it says 03:30.

2:00 P.M.-3:00 P.M. - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: In Episode 15 (Day 1), the pregnancy test that Teri takes to the bathroom is a "TrueBlue" (close up shot on it), but the one that Kim finds there is a "ClearBlue".

00:13:07 - 00:19:57

Day 3: 2:00 A.M.-3:00 A.M. - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: Chappelle shows Jack the security footage of him shooting Nina. He shoots her three times. He fires the gun with more of a gap between the gunshots on the footage than he did when we saw him kill her.

Day 2: 11:00 P.M.-12:00 Midnight - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: Mike Novik is briefing President Palmer about his phone call with Jack Bauer. In one shot Mike gets so emotionally involved in his speech to Palmer, a tear roles down his face and his eyes are glazed. The camera switches to Palmer, and in the next shot of Mike, his face is dry and his eyes are not glazed anymore.

Day 4: 12:00 P.M.-1:00 P.M. - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: Day Four: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM. When Tariq and Behrooz are shown in split-screen digging Debbie's grave right after the commercial break (12:54:10 by the show's clock), Tariq's white t-shirt is covered in dirt. When the shot goes back to them a minute or so later, Tariq's t-shirt is much cleaner.

Continuity mistake: In the police station, Kim's right arm is handcuffed to the bench as we see the profile/ master shot of her and Rick, but in the next shot, (the medium/front), you can see that Kim's right arm is behind her now and not cuffed, as Rick is being cuffed to the bench. A few seconds later, we see her right arm is again handcuffed to the bench. Kim's right arm is seen moving around as she talks to Rick and the scene progresses. Her left arm is finally uncuffed when the detective goes to book her.

Day 5: 9:00 A.M.-10:00 A.M. - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: During Episode 3 of Season 5, the terrorists take Derek in front of live television. When the terrorists force him on his knees, you can see a splatter of blood on the floor from the body of the last victim that was shot there. As time is running out, another shot of Derek being held by the terrorists is shown, and the mere splatter of blood that had been near his knees is now a noticeably big pool of blood. Nobody has harmed Derek yet, and there are no signs that he is bleeding. So where did all that blood come from?

Day 3: 1:00 A.M.-2:00 A.M. - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: When Jack leaves the cockpit he puts his gun away in a holster on his back. When he gets back to Nina and Chase he puts his gun away a second time.
