The Night of Sudden Death - S1-E4

New this week Continuity mistake: In the scene after the first freeze frame, Corinne is affixed on a round arrow target. Corinne's body keeps changing positions even though the target has stopped spinning. First long shot, she is horizontal with her head at #3. The close-up has her almost vertical with her head at #1. Next close-up, her head is at #2. Following long shot, she is horizontal (head at #3). This keeps occurring throughout this scene.

The Night of the Deadly Bed - S1-E2

New this week Continuity mistake: After the opening credits, West is riding on an open field of short grass to meet his personal train - both train and West stop. West's close-up shot shows a large tree directly behind him - this is impossible for there were no trees close to him in the previous shot.

The Night of the Deadly Bed - S1-E2

New this week Continuity mistake: The first transformed freeze frame for this episode appears on the upper right side which is different from the pilot's lower left side. Also, this episode's freeze frame image appears looking like a grainy photo when compared to the pilot's pencil sketch-like image.

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.

The Night That Terror Stalked the Town - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: West pulls a gun on Artemus and places it just behind his head. In the next shot, though, West is standing two feet away and the gun is nowhere near Artemus' head.

The Night of the Glowing Corpse - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode when West walks into the mansion where the meeting is behind held, just as he enters, Lt. Armand Renard can be seen talking to Artemus at the bottom of the staircase, but Renard died earlier in the episode. They obviously filmed this scene at the same time as the first scene, but missed that continuity error in the editing.

The Night That Terror Stalked the Town - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Loveless records his and West's conversation, West says "You belong in jail." When Dr. Loveless plays the recording for Janus in a subsequent scene, West says "Jail is where you belong."

The Night of the Murderous Spring - S1-E27

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Loveless falls from the sill of the double window, the right half of the frame is open (the camera view being from the outside looking in). When West rushes outside to find the "body" missing, the right frame has closed itself and the left is now open.
