Home - S2-E8

Stupidity: While discussing his arrest with Emily, Seth mentions that he didn't tell the arresting officer that he works for Kirkman. As the White House's liaison to the media, Seth has a high degree of visibility; it would extremely difficult, if not downright impossible, to keep his place of employment concealed from the police for very long in the time between his booking and arraignment and when Kendra bails him out the following day.

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.

Show generally

Question: Just rewatched the series and in the episode where they are operating on President Kirkman to remove the bullet fragments I noticed what I think was a secret service agent in the background of the OR. Is this normal practice for when a president is under anaesthetic or a medical procedure, or was this just because it was after an attempted assassination?

Answer: It would be normal procedure, yes. The Secret Service accompanies the president everywhere, except in very limited circumstances (for example, they don't go into the bathroom with him, or stand in his room while he sleeps). When Bill Clinton had an operation to fix a torn tendon, there was an agent in the operating room throughout the procedure.
