The Wild Wild West

The Night of the Bottomless Pit - S2-E8

New this week Continuity mistake: Towards the beginning of this episode when West is first taken to see the commandant, Cochon goes to the rack on the wall to get West a clean shirt. They are standing by the door where Cochon throws the dirty shirt. There are three pegs on the rack, with a shirt hanging on the leftmost peg and rightmost peg. Cochon gets the shirt off the one on the right peg. As they walk away, West's dirty shirt is now on the ground under the left peg. After the meeting with the commodant, West and Cochon leave. Cochon asks for the clean shirt that West is wearing. When Cochon goes back to the rack to get West a replacement shirt, the shirt that was on the far left peg is now on the center peg, but West's dirty shirt is still under the left peg.

The Night of the Bottomless Pit - S2-E8

The Night of the Big Blast - S2-E4

New this month Continuity mistake: Halfway between the opening credits and first freeze frame, Gordon and Ms. Lily Fortune are seen entering the private train car in the dark of night, but the shot before their entrance is of the front of the private train car at twilight. That shot of the train car also shows a backwards number 3.

The Night of the Poisonous Posey - S2-E7

New this month Continuity mistake: Towards the end of this episode, West is climbing up the latter out of the ice storage room. The seat of his pants are noticeably dirty as are both of his calves' areas. When West exits onto the street, his pants are inexplicably clean during this shootout scene. During West's fight with Brutus, West's entire back - from shoulders to the bottom of the legs of his pants - has been quite dirtied from rolling on the ground. West then runs to fight Sergei. When Sergei falls off the horse, and West is hovering over him, the entire back of West's clothes now seem only to be faintly dusty. When West leaves the fight area to enter into the funeral parlor, his clothes are immaculate.

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

New this month Continuity mistake: Three fourths into this episode, West is inside the wall of the mouse hole. Wearing his blue suit, he enters a knot in the wall onto a ramp. While sliding down, West is now wearing an emerald green suit. When West is sliding into the octagon container, he is wearing the blue suit again.

The Night of the Golden Cobra - S2-E2

New this month Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the closing scene, their private train is shown moving right next to tall green trees with large mountains directly behind the trees. The final shot of the scene shows the train in a very desert-like location moving towards the trees and mountains which are shown in the far distance.

The Night of the Returning Dead - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: In the barn, when Artemus jokes about "smoked ham," he and West are standing within inches of each other. Then the shot cuts to a wider angle, at which point they're several feet apart.

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: West and Gordon are ordered to sit on the floor to talk to the diminutive Dr. Loveless at eye level. In all the two-shots, their shoulders are touching. In all the wider angles, they're sitting a foot apart.

The Night of the Returning Dead - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: It's just past nightfall when the townspeople enter the courthouse. They aren't there more than half an hour, yet it's daylight when they emerge. Then a shot from inside shows that it's night again.

The Night of the Skulls - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: West's sword fight ends when his opponent falls through a window after dropping his weapon. In the next shot, the dropped blade has moved several feet to the center of the floor, and West's sword has vanished altogether.

00:30:00

Jean G

The Night of the Man-Eating House - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: West tosses a small grenade at the French doors. We see it hit and explode without breaking a single pane or crosspiece. It just makes smoke and blackens the surface. After a shot of West and Gordon, we cut back to the door and it's now a broken ruin with no glass and the wood framing destroyed. Delayed action bomb?

00:13:00

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

The Night of the Wolf - S2-E27

Continuity mistake: The boot heel West removes to obtain his hidden explosive somehow reattaches itself by the time he leaps into the mining car. (He doesn't stop to put it back - he's running for his life from a pack of hungry wolves.) His boots also change from black to brown by the time he makes it outside and jumps on his trusty horse.

The Night of the Tottering Tontine - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: There's a coiled wire sticking out of the spine of the book that electrocutes Baring. It's there in close-up, but disappears in full-shot.

00:42:50

Jean G

The Night of the Tottering Tontine - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: West demonstrates how the knife popped out of the chair upholstery when pressure was applied. His hand is inches from the blade in one shot, then disappears in the next close-up view. When it cuts back to the master shot, his hand is once again beside the knife.

Jean G

The Night of the Bottomless Pit - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When they attack him, Artemus' cellmates are smacked with a wooden chair, which lands broken but upright on the floor. In the very next shot, though, as Artie throws the exploding cigar, the chair is suddenly lying on its side.

00:25:30

The Night of the Bottomless Pit - S2-E8

The Night of the Big Blast - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: While Artemus talks to Lily at her dining table, he clasps his hands behind his back and is standing up straight. When the shot cuts, he's suddenly leaning forward with his left arm extended to the table.

00:11:25

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: In the reverse angle shot of West's table, the plates, candles and red table cloth are all there - but the huge dish of butter has disappeared.

00:39:20

Jean G

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: Because the second one is a painted backdrop, the building across the street from the sheriff's office in the exterior shots looks nothing like the one we can see from inside the office in the next scene.

00:07:00

Jean G

The Night of the Man-Eating House - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: West and Gordon drag Day from the haunted house, prop him on the porch and turn away. When they turn back, they're stunned to see that he's aged 30 years. But if you look closely, you can see that the man they prop on the porch is already gray-bearded and shaggy. So why were they surprised?

The Night of the Vicious Valentine - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: The mannequin arms holding West to Emma Valentine's chair keep changing positions between shots.

The Night of the Deadly Blossom - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: When Barclay hangs the bone hatchet back in its place, the outline on the wall supposedly left by the item differs significantly from the artifact itself. (Most noticeable is the upper end: the outline has one long curled tip, but the actual hatchet has two short prongs there.) The outline was apparently drawn without the prop, or from a different prop altogether.

00:12:05

Jean G

The Night of the Skulls - S2-E13

Jean G

The Night of the Poisonous Posey - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: The bad guys throw an unconscious West down a chute into the ice house. He goes in with his arms at his sides, then slides with his arms above his head, and finally lands with both hands folded over his stomach - all while remaining unconscious.

00:30:30

Jean G

The Night of the Flying Pie Plate - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: At the end, the wagon tailgate falls open during the scuffle with the bad guys. When West fights his way to the front and drives the wagon away, the tailgate has somehow tied itself up again.

00:48:00

Jean G

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: West stabs the giant cat in the left front paw. But when the cat is shown licking its wound, the injury is on its right front foot instead.
