The Wild Wild West

The Night of the Poisonous Posey - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of this episode, West is climbing up the latter out of the ice storage room. The seat of his pants are noticeably dirty as are both of his calves' areas. When West exits onto the street, his pants are inexplicably clean during this shootout scene. During West's fight with Brutus, West's entire back - from shoulders to the bottom of the legs of his pants - has been quite dirtied from rolling on the ground. West then runs to fight Sergei. When Sergei falls off the horse, and West is hovering over him, the entire back of West's clothes now seem only to be faintly dusty. When West leaves the fight area to enter into the funeral parlor, his clothes are immaculate.

The Night of the Poisonous Posey - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: In the funeral parlor, West is standing with his back to a wooden door. The shot cuts away briefly, then back, and now there's a blue wall behind him. Cut again, and the door is back. (00:19:05)

The Night of the Poisonous Posey - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: The bad guys throw an unconscious West down a chute into the ice house. He goes in with his arms at his sides, then slides with his arms above his head, and finally lands with both hands folded over his stomach - all while remaining unconscious. (00:30:30)
