Designated Survivor

Brace for Impact - S1-E21

Other mistake: When Agent Wells tells the White House they need to alert the Pentagon that Lozano is inside the Pentagon, she is told "it's already done, they are locking down the building right now." Then, later in the same episode, we see Lozano use a key card to easily pass through the building. (00:15:45 - 00:21:15)

Misalliance - S1-E19

Other mistake: When Patrick Lloyd receives the text message on his phone while working out, we hear it buzz and he reads it immediately but the message says "14 min. ago." The time also jumps from 12:15 to 12:59. (00:02:20)

#whocares - S3-E6

Other mistake: There is a shot of the NIH building. The lintel says The National Institutes of Health, the correct name. Cut to a shot supposedly inside the building, where a wall hanging says National Institute of Health. So does a brochure given to an actor. (00:17:00)


Outbreak - S2-E3

Other mistake: The First Lady mentions that her father's heart transplant was done when she was 10 years old in 2002 which means she was born in 1992, and she was 25 years old in 2017, so when did she give birth to her son Leo who's 17 years old? When she was 8?

Suggested correction: The First Lady never mentioned a date. Andrew Booker's (her father) heart transplant was done in 1987, according to the medical record found. Her father died in 2002, but that wasn't the year of the transplant.


Brace for Impact - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: Agent Wells is chasing the bad guy on foot. In the first shot her SIG is not cocked. In the next shot it is cocked. In the next shot the slide is retracted. In the next shot she somehow magically fires it. Then the hammer is somehow forward again. A few seconds later as she climbs the stairs it supernaturally transforms into a Glock. And at no time does she use a proper grip on the gun.

Answer: Apparently the characters were eliminated due to cost-cutting measures by Netflix and after salary negotiations with the actors failed.

Oh. That makes the most sense. I also forgot to mention Kirkman's brother.
