24 - Continuity Errors?

I heard Dennis Haysbert on the radio this morning. They're currently filming episode 13 I think. That's got to be a big job maintaining continuity with clothing, etc. over what's supposed to be a 24 hour period. Granted, the characters are going to change their clothes for one reason or another (Jack changes his shirt in hour 3). Has anybody noticed anything yet?

Mike

p.s. Haysbert played Pedro Cerrano in Major League ("F*** you, jobu!")! I can't picture him as Cerrano now...

I was in disbelief when I read the Entertainment Weekly article about this show.

They said the writers are writing this as they go along! They said they have a vague idea of how it will end, but everything else is being filled in as they go along.

I dunno, but that is disappointing for some reason. You would think with such a "high concept" show that they would have already had this baby written out and plotted out, episode by episode.

Writing as you go for something like this increases the chance for suckiness.

Doesn't look like it matters anymore... check out what the Chicago Sun Times hints at today:

"24" (8 p.m., WFLD-Channel 32): There's a murder going on in real time that Kiefer Sutherland can't stop: This show is getting killed. Too few viewers are watching, but it's not for lack of good reviews or Fox promos.

Can you say 'cancelled"?

Where can we get ratings info?

So far so good though. I've been impressed with the first few episodes. As for continuity, it would be kind of hard to keep everyone looking the exact same over the course of filming (6 months to 1 year I would imagine)

They realy need to move this out of Tuesday nights.

Too crowded and Smallville already had a good head start as far as new shows are concerned.

Most people are taping this or watching it on the reruns so I'm not surprised the ratings stink.

I couldn't believe "24" hasn't been all plotted out. That's just plain stupid as hell!

But then again, if they could squeeze Mia Kirshner in for all 24 hours, I would keep watching...
