The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

Revealing mistake: Mr. Braine screams as his steam-powered chair crashes into the bandstand. If you look closely at the next shot, just before the explosion, you can see that the dummy now in the chair has its head bowed forward. It also has light brown hair, rather than Mr. Braine's silver hair. (00:47:10)

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.

Revealing mistake: When Gordon is looking outside on their train car platform, it is obvious the background desert scrub is a painted scenery flat.

Other mistake: Throughout this episode Gordon keeps producing orange-sized smoke bombs, but he has no pockets in his clothing large enough for all of them and if he did, the size of the bombs would be obvious in his clothing.

Continuity mistake: West is lying down while in hand shackles. When Voulee turns her back to him, he releases a gadget from under his sleeve by his right wrist. While the camera closes in and out of the device to free him, West's shirt sleeve by his wrist keeps appearing and disappearing. (00:38:35)

The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: The opening of the last scene is of the personal train car in the dark night with very little moonlight. The closing scene of this episode shows the train again amid the night sky which is a much lighter beautiful blue. (00:47:45 - 00:49:15)

The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: The arms of the West chess piece are at different positions each time the piece is shown. (00:00:05 - 00:07:45)

The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: When Braine fires one of his mini-rockets at West, West falls at an angle in front of the bureau's left side. The next shot of the fallen West has him on the bureau's right side, perpendicular to it. (00:20:50)

The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

Revealing mistake: Mr. Braine fires a mini-rocket at Brendage, killing him. But a poor camera angle reveals the explosive charge going off in the wall more than two feet to Brendage's left. From the angle at which it was fired, the rocket couldn't possibly have hit him. (00:21:45)
