The Night of the Ready-Made Corpse - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: In pursuit of the photographer, West jumps out of the window and lands on a cart of stuffed burlap sacks. West's right shoulder area, back of his suit's jacket's right arm and right pant leg area are very dirty. As West runs after the photographer, his suit keeps getting cleaner and cleaner. (00:04:35)

The Night of the Bubbling Death - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: As West drags the body of a bad guy out of the scene, the supposedly unconscious man is holding his head up so as not to have his head dragged through the dirt. A truly unconscious person's head would flop back on to the ground.
