New this month Continuity mistake: Right before the second freeze frame, the invisible Midas knocks out Gordon who ends up on the floor at the foot of the staircase.

The Night of the Burning Diamond - S1-E26

New this month Continuity mistake: Before the third freeze frame when Midas is outside with West and Gordon, all the people around them are motionless. Midas suspends his flask above his left shoulder. The next camera shot shows the flask several inches lower. Then, the shot from behind Midas shows the flask suspended back to its original position above his left shoulder. During this outside scene, there was a slight breeze which caused both the curtains of the coach to move as well as the lady's lower dress (the one standing behind Midas). When the three move inside, the people suddenly "freeze", but the woman's cape is still slightly moving as well as the gentlemen on the screen's right. When they go into the gallery which houses the jewelry, the motionless actors are not as still as the ones who were outside.

New this month Continuity mistake: The scene right before the third freeze frame shows the iron gates slowly closing behind West and Gordon. There are three vertical rows of bars showing on each side of the gate.

The Night of the Burning Diamond - S1-E26

New this month Revealing mistake: In the fight scene before the second freeze frame during the fight scene, the splicing of the film is off because we see the stationary West shifting a few inches as Midas appears and disappears on the staircase in front of him.

The Night of the Druid's Blood - S1-E24

New this month Continuity mistake: After the first freeze frame, West is trapped in a pit. The camera angle from above shows him standing on a pail with his arms extended upward - so he can hold on to the beam - as he is waiting for the fuse to thrust him upward. At the moment the fuse propels him upward, the close-up shows West's arms down at his side, but as he is ascending towards the beam his arms are extended upward.

The Night of the Freebooters - S1-E25

New this month Continuity mistake: In the scene after the second freeze frame, Gordon enters the room where West and Captain Leon are being held. Gordon drops his monocle to the ground and with his foot hides it with the debris on the ground to cover it up. When Gordon leaves, the camera shot shows West picking up the monocle in plain sight with nothing covering it.

The Night of the Two-Legged Buffalo - S1-E23

New this month Continuity mistake: In the scene before the opening freeze frames occur, a giant mask, hanging on the wall, is shown several times. A close-up of the shape of the tongue before it shoots the arrow is not the same elongated shape which was shown a few seconds earlier.

New this month Continuity mistake: After West saves the man from falling into the spiked pit, they walk to leave but a trap door opens, and they fall into the water. As they get onto the pier, both of them are soaking wet and have wet hair. They crawl out, sit, and start talking. The close-up of their faces, while they talk, shows that both of them now have dry hair.

Revealing mistake: When Liddy's mansion explodes and burns, the switch from real house to cardboard model is very obvious.

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.

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.

The Night of the Murderous Spring - S1-E27

Revealing mistake: Kitten bends apart the cell bars, allowing West and Gordon to escape. But when they brush against it on the way out, one of the "iron" bars gives, flexing like the rubber that it probably is.

The Night of the Burning Diamond - S1-E26

Revealing mistake: Artemus is sampling beef stroganoff from a pot on the stove. He then carries the kettle by its swinging handle across the room, tilting it just enough to reveal to the camera that it's really empty.

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.
