Forum: The Situation Room > Episode starting time

When writing episode guides, do we use the starting time on the hour, or the second the previouslies are over? Because it's been changed all over the wiki so that it's the latter. Personally I like it that they start after the previouslies. Can someone verify this though? I can see the contest between the two times on the most recent episode guide.

It's more accurate and more informative to use the adjusted time, since the writers often depend on the couple minutes that pass between each episode. --Movebot 08:33, March 20, 2010 (UTC)
I think it's confusing for many people because the episodes all say "the following takes place between X and Y" and everyone thinks it's precisely correct. It's just that the showrunners can't have an introduction that's like: "the following takes place between 3:01:34pm and 4:00pm" for obvious reasons. However, my question is, this doesn't alter the Deaths on 24 list, does it? In other words, does that list already take into account these times, or does it need to be adjusted too.

No, since those times use are based off the in-episode clocks. The main thing is just making it clear that the titles and Previously do take up a certain amount of time at the beginning of each hour. --Pyramidhead 02:32, March 22, 2010 (UTC)
