Day 3: 5:00 A.M.-6:00 A.M. - S3-E17

Corrected entry: When Jack speaks to the agent at MI6 the view outside the MI6 offices show it to be night, but it would be early afternoon in London.

Correction: The MI6 offices that Jack calls are in Los Angeles, not in London. Jack goes to the office in person, and it's in downtown LA.

Day 3: 7:00 A.M.-8:00 A.M. - S3-E19

Corrected entry: If Jane Saunders receives $10,000 from her father every month why would she need to work at a library to make her way through college?

Correction: It's never said that she must work there for money. It could very well be related to one of her classes, or maybe she just likes it enough that that's how she wants to spend her free time.


Season 3 generally

Corrected entry: In the first half of the season it takes only minutes to determine whether or not someone is infected with the virus. When Michelle is at the hotel it takes three hours.

Correction: They were checking only a couple people on the spot. At the hotel they were checking hundreds of people and had to send the material away to a lab. Travel time accounts for a lot of the extra time.

Season 3 generally

Corrected entry: Chloe tells Kim that she's known and worked with Chase for three years, and we know from Chase's history that at least the past 12 months were at CTU. Now if Chloe had worked there for a year wouldn't people know that she did not have a baby daughter?

Correction: She worked with Chase for 3 years at CTU Washington D.C. She didn't necessarily mean the past three years.

Day 3: 11:00 A.M.-12:00 P.M. - S3-E23

Corrected entry: Julia tells Wayne that the police are on their way over to arrest her. Since when does the police call people and tell them they are coming over to arrest them?

Correction: They haven't called her, she figured it out on her own.

Day 3: 4:00 A.M.-5:00 A.M. - S3-E16

Corrected entry: Michelle and her staff sealed the hotel to keep the virus inside. But when the angry guest smashes the door to get out (so Michelle has to shoot him) no-one acts to seal the broken door. (00:59:00)

Correction: Viruses are very fragile and the reason the hotel was contained was not to keep the virus itself in but to keep all the guests in. They seal it off camera, though, to keep the guests from trying to escape that way.


Day 3: 11:00 A.M.-12:00 P.M. - S3-E23

Corrected entry: Why is the subway running when Palmer has ordered all public transportation to be shut down?

Correction: Jack said that he didn't want the subway trains to be shut down because that would tip Arthur Rabens off.

Day 3: 6:00 A.M.-7:00 A.M. - S3-E18

Corrected entry: Chappelle is married (notice the ring), so why would he say he has no family?

Correction: He might be keeping the ring on even though his wife may be dead or have left him, or he didn't want to burden Jack with any kind of guilt.


Day 3: 7:00 P.M.-8:00 P.M. - S3-E7

Corrected entry: Tony is discharged from the hospital and back at CTU in under 20 minutes, this is far faster than it could possibly in real life, considering CTU is at least 15 minutes drive away. It takes a long time to check out of hospital - forms to sign and so on.


Correction: Seeing how he is the director of CTU. I'm sure he has special previleges. Besides, his wife would have given verbal approval to have him check out ASAP and maybe sign forms later.
