Day 2: 7:00 P.M.-8:00 P.M. - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: When Kate Warner phones her sister, Marie holds her phone up to the camera and you can see that the words "KATE'S CELL" have been written using the 'Write Messages' function on her Nokia. The 'abc' in the corner gives it away plus you can see the cursor trying to be hidden by being moved next to the 'K' (00:20:05)

Day 3: 8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. - S3-E8

Revealing mistake: Right when Jack and the prisoner are walking through what appears to be the gun room in the prison, you can see the guy who attacks them through the door. You can only see a small part of him but he is obviously waiting to enter the scene and attack. (00:14:00)

Day 2: 5:00 P.M.-6:00 P.M. - S2-E10

Revealing mistake: Right after Kim Bauer and Miguel start a fire in the police van, the vehicle swerves off the road and tumbles. In the next shot, you see "Kim" on top of the car, trying to get in through the window (the car is about to fall off a slope or something). Pay close attention, zoom in, or whatever, the woman is not Kim but is a stunt double. She's got a much chubbier-looking face and is definitely not Kim Bauer. This occurs at 19:40 in this episode. (00:19:40)

Day 2: 6:00 A.M.-7:00 A.M. - S2-E23

Revealing mistake: When Michelle is in the van, waiting for the computer to finish analysing the conversation between Alex Hewitt and Sherry Palmer, the computer bleeps to says it has "heard" enough of the conversation to be able to recreate Hewitt's voice. How ever, it bleeps whilst Sherry is in the middle of talking. The computer should have made the noise about 15 seconds before.

Day 2: 12:00 Noon-1:00 P.M. - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: The Fox news video that Palmer watches of the Ambassador's helicopter being shot down is marked 1:18:24 in the lower right hand corner. The episode is supposed to take place between Noon and 1 p.m. This is 41.47 into the episode.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: It's a dirt road - presumably other cars drive on it occasionally. There aren't any skid marks or similarly specific features.

The roadway is tarmac. The tracks mentioned are on the side of the tarmac. Why would a normal law abiding citizen drive off the tarmac?

Day 8: 4:00 P.M. - 5:00 P.M. - S8-E1

Revealing mistake: When Farhad Hassan brings the press ID for Meredith Reed to security, you see the guard walk through the metal detector wearing his police belt, but the metal detector does not go off, showing that it's either not real, or not turned on.

Visible crew/equipment: When Nina's just been shot, and makes it to the barn to call CTU (around 7.10am), while she's speaking on the phone there's a cameraman visible on the right hand side (DVD). (00:12:40)

Jack Bauer: I've killed two people since midnight. I haven't slept in over 24 hours. So maybe you should be a little more afraid of me than you are now.

Chosen answer: Nobody knew, not even the writers, until at least halfway through the season when they were writing the end. They wanted to keep all options open.
