The Night of the Arrow - S3-E16

Factual error: The soldiers toss Artemus into the cell, slam the door and walk away. But they never produce a key or lock the cell door. He's somehow locked in anyway, though.

The Night of the Circus of Death - S3-E9

Factual error: At the mint, Arte hides in a broom closet. He carries nothing in (nor did he hide anything in there beforehand), yet he emerges later in an "old man" disguise, wearing a wig, hat, mustache, false nose, glasses and janitor costume. Magic closet?

The Night of the Underground Terror - S3-E19

Factual error: The small round table in West's railcar parlor has a flip-over top, with secret maps hidden on the underside. The wine decanter and glasses all stay attached when it flips. But impossibly, when West turns the tabletop back over at the end, there's a full cup of coffee sitting on it.

Show generally

Factual error: "Night of the Lord of Limbo": At the end, Vautrain tells West and Gordon to go through the door on their right. The door is on the camera's right, but is on West's and Gordon's left.

The Night of the Bubbling Death - S3-E1

Factual error: The skeletons in the dungeon hanging from shackles and standing upright in cages would have been piles of bones on the ground due to cartilage and tendons decaying, which hold bones together.

The Night of the Inferno - S1-E1

Factual error: Liddy's six-shooter fires seven shots - three at West and four more at the bottles on the table after he escapes.

The Night of the Vicious Valentine - S2-E20

Factual error: Artemus opens a cabinet to reveal a map of the United States where he and West are keeping track of the alphabetical murders. The map is far out of date for the Grant administration, with what became the state of West Virginia during the Civil War still part of Virginia, and missing entirely the states of Nevada, Oregon, Kansas, Nebraska, and Minnesota-all of which were part of the union before President Grant took office.

The Night of the Skulls - S2-E13

Factual error: The bizarre centerpiece on the murderers' banquet table has colored electric light bulbs showing in the skulls' eye sockets.

The Night of the Poisonous Posey - S2-E7

Factual error: Brutus fires his rifle at West more than a dozen times without once reloading. And he's not carrying anything in which he could store ammunition anyway.

The Night of the Firebrand - S3-E2

Factual error: A modern warehouse-type structure is seen in the background as West rides into Fort Savage.

The Night of the Firebrand - S3-E2

Factual error: The amount of explosives detonated in the wagon should have blown it to toothpicks, not left intact with just the canopy blown off.

The Night of the Kraken - S4-E6

Factual error: West and Artie are trying to move a cabinet from the wall. A closeup shot shows West's left hand entering from the right side of the shot to press a button that allows a secret panel to open. Unless West twisted his left hand 180°, then him pressing the button as shown is not possible.

The Night of the Skulls - S2-E13

Factual error: Fenlow begins shouting about "one nation, under God, indivisible." This series is set in the 1870s. The Pledge of Allegiance, from which these lines are taken, wasn't written until 1892. And the words "under God" weren't added until 1954.

The Night of the Watery Death - S2-E9

Factual error: The coin Artemus hands West is a Morgan silver dollar. It's no coincidence that the actor's thumb covers the date on the coin in the inserted close-up. The series is set during Grant's presidential term in the early 1870s, and Morgan dollars weren't minted until 1878, after Grant had left office.
