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.

Continuity mistake: Mike Novick and Senator Palmer are outside the car at Dr Ferragamo's office building when his office explodes. As they get back in the car, you can see over the shoulder of whichever gets into the rear, passenger-side. There is no one in the driver's seat, but when Palmer says, "Let's go," the car moves off immediately. (00:30:25)

Suggested correction: The car is secret service. Detailed to protect Palmer. As soon as Palmer gets in the car, the SS agent gets in the car too.

Continuity mistake: When Agent Walker enters the building where Matobo is being held, Chloe tells her on com the stairway is to Agent Walker's left, she then immediately goes to the door to her right to enter the stairwell to let Jack Tony and Bill in from the roof.

Suggested correction: After saying there's law firms to the left (brown door) , and on your right is a suit of offices where Matabo's being held (glass doors)... Chloe says. "stairway is down the hall to your left." She then proceeded down the hall that's to her left. The door, however, is on the right-hand side of that hall. I can understand the person mistakenly understood that, but it's not a continuity error.

3:00 P.M.-4:00 P.M. - S1-E16

Revealing mistake: When Teri is driving from the hitman, she drives down the dirt covered side of the road. There are tire tracks visible in the dirt from previous takes. (00:31:40)

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?
