Trivia
During season two shooting, Elisha Cuthbert was bitten by the mountain lion who menaced her in one of the plotlines. Before shooting the scene the animal trainer suggested she "meet" the mountain lion before shooting, when she went to pet the mountain lion it bit her hand. She was taken to the hospital, treated for puncture wounds and was given a tetanus shot.

During the shoot for season 4, a special six-minute segment was shot for the US version of the season 3 DVD where Jack loses his job at CTU, an antagonist of season 4 arrives in the US, and Jack has an intimate moment with his new girlfriend. This did not appear on any of the other versions of the DVD released earlier in the summer, however it does appear on the UK and German DVD release. An extended version of this segment (as stated in the commentary by director Jon Cassar) is available on the UK DVD release of season 4.

Goofs
Many times Jack and others are seen stealing a car by quickly reaching under the dashboard to yank down some wires and intermittently sparking them together to make the engine start. This is impossible on many levels. Beginning in the mid nineties with the introduction of 2nd generation on board diagnostics (OBD II) all cars have theft protection that requires electronic input from the key or the computer will either shut down the fuel injection or not allow the starter motor to engage. Only a manufacturer's program (or a black market version) through the scan tool connector could bypass this. On an older car you would still have to remove the panel below the steering column (several screws) and even then the wires from the key lock and other controls are tightly molded together in bundles requiring a razor knife to separate and strip them. You would then have to connect constant power to the ignition (distributor or coil pack) and then hold the wire to the starter motor together with power for the entire time the engine needs to crank to start until releasing it, not just arcing it a couple of times.

In many episodes in season one, you can see cameras on stands and men walking carrying them, such as when Nina is in the abandoned building in the construction site. Or when Jack is walking through the basement of the building where Senator Palmer is holding his breakfast meeting.

Q
Who was the President during Day 1?
A
This has never been established for definite, but spin-offs have strongly implied that the President during the first season was Harry Barnes, a Republican whom David Palmer subsequently defeated in the election. Supposedly the first season was written under the silent assumption that Bill Clinton was the incumbent President, presumably meaning the creators intended for Day 1 to be in mid-2000 , though this has since been invalidated and Day 1 established to have taken place in 2004.
