Show generally

Continuity mistake: "Night of the Bubbling Death": When West breaks into the hacienda, the double windows he enters by have quite a bit of glowing light behind them. Yet when he climbs into the room, it's completely dark inside. (00:22:00)

The Night of the Avaricious Actuary - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: The letter from the Cyclops Insurance Company that Gordon pulls out of his pocket is folded, wrinkled, and well-worn. In the close up of the same letter West reads, the letter is white, pristine, and not wrinkled or folded.

Continuity mistake: As West shoots it out with a bandito, the door jamb West uses for cover has a varying amount of bullet holes in it.

The Night of Miguelito's Revenge - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: The barber chair West sits in has dark wood arm rests, yet the close up of his hand as he is being chloroformed by Loveless shows white arm rests.

The Night of Jack O'Diamonds - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: As West lowers himself down the face of the cliff with his hand-held rappelling tool, West does not have a safety harness attached until a few shots later, then the safety harness disappears.

Continuity mistake: When West and Gordon enter the print shop, they see Mr. Blackhurst's corpse sitting at his desk, with his head up, but when West and Gordon approach Blackhurst, his head is now noticeably bowed forward.

Continuity mistake: "Night of the Bubbling Death": When Grigsby first approaches the stolen U.S. Constitution, it's under glass (we can see the light reflections). But seconds later he lifts the paper without removing the glass, which has disappeared. It's back later, when West must cut it to retrieve the document. (00:09:10 - 00:36:30)

The Night of the Howling Light - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: It's night outside the train's windows - until Artemus looks out at the attacking Indians; then it's day, and in next shot, it's night again. (00:06:55)

The Night of the Howling Light - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: Akima dies with his head tilted to the left. In the next shot, he's managed, even though he's "departed," to tilt his head to the right instead. (00:49:20)

Continuity mistake: "Night of the Arrow": When Artemus pours the president a drink, the glass is only 1/4 full. When Grant picks it up, however, it's suddenly 3/4 full. (00:09:15)

The Night of the Colonel's Ghost - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: The balcony railing is intact above the column post where West ties his horse. When West returns to his horse to leave, the railing post is detached and falling away from the balcony. (00:02:55 - 00:05:35)
