New this month Continuity mistake: The balcony railing is intact above the column post where West ties his horse. When West returns to his horse to leave, the railing post is detached and falling away from the balcony. (00:02:55 - 00:05:35)

11291929

The Night of the Surreal McCoy - S2-E23

New this month Continuity mistake: When West is pulling the string to shoot the gun, we can see under both knees his pants are covered in dirt. As he runs to enter the Saloon, the front camera shot shows no sign of dirt. (00:44:10)

11291929

The Night of the Colonel's Ghost - S2-E24

New this month Continuity mistake: When West ties his horse to column, there is a boarded up entrance to the left with one wooden plank at a 45 degree angle in the middle. When West returns to his horse to leave, the plank is missing, and West rides off without having to untie his horse. (00:03:05 - 00:05:30)

11291929

The Night of the Surreal McCoy - S2-E23

New this month Continuity mistake: West enters the portrait and is stretched out on his back on the ground. As he is walking to the saloon, his entire backside of his suit is covered in dirt. West becomes dizzy, and as he is falling to the ground, face first, we see that the entire back side of his suit is clean. (00:35:50)

11291929

The Night of the Surreal McCoy - S2-E23

New this month Continuity mistake: During the fight, the candle on the left tilts to the left. Next shot, it is perfectly vertical. West knocks a thug into the bureau, and left candlestick tilts to the right. After the fight is done when West is opening the door for Gordon, the candle is inexplicably on the floor. (00:12:45)

11291929

The Night of the Surreal McCoy - S2-E23

New this month Continuity mistake: The second thug to be knocked-out is on the floor (to the left of screen) and has fallen on his left-side with his left leg slightly bent, and his right leg cannot be seen. When Gordon enters the room, this unconscious thug is now positioned face down, arms extended over his head, and both legs stretched out. (00:12:55)

11291929

The Night of the Surreal McCoy - S2-E23

New this month Continuity mistake: The last thug to be knocked-out is on the floor by the fireplace with his body at an angle to it. When Gordon enters the room, this unconscious thug is closer to the fireplace, and his body has changed position to be parallel to it. (00:12:55)

11291929

The Night of the Deadly Bubble - S2-E22

New this month Continuity mistake: This scene opens showing the personal train car at twilight. When West opens the door to leave (one minute and 10 seconds later), it is pitch black outside. (00:06:15 - 00:07:25)

11291929

The Night of the Colonel's Ghost - S2-E24

New this month Continuity mistake: The opening scene of this episode shows the train moving at twilight. West and Gordon are looking out the window, and it is pitch black. Right before West goes outside, the camera shot of the train wheel shows light (either twilight or moonlight) on the wheel. The very next scene has West with the train door open, and it is pitch black outside. (00:00:05 - 00:00:35)

11291929

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)

Jean G

The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

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.

Scott215

The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

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

Scott215

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

Visible crew/equipment: When the old man gets up from his chair and moves toward the door, the camera shadow is moving on the wall behind him. (00:18:40)

Jean G

The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

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.

Scott215

The Night of the Big Blast - S2-E4

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.

11291929

The Night of the Big Blast - S2-E4

Visible crew/equipment: The boom mic's shadow is visible as Lily Fortune and her mom enter the parlor of West and Gordon's railroad car.

Scott215

The Night of the Big Blast - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: It is obviously a dummy body that West and Gordon net, then drag behind the carriage before the dummy body explodes.

Scott215

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. (00:21:20)

Jean G

The Night of the Big Blast - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: The "corpse" Miklos wheels into Dr. Faustina's laboratory is pretty healthy for a dead guy: you can see his chest moving up and down as he breathes. (00:27:00)

Jean G

The Night of the Big Blast - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: The large black straps hanging off the sides of Dr. Faustina's medical table disappear when West and Gordon burst into the lab. (00:44:00)

Jean G

The Night of the Big Blast - S2-E4

Visible crew/equipment: At the end of the sword fight, the moving boom shadow is visible on the balustrade at the right of the screen. (00:30:05)

Jean G

The Night of the Big Blast - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: During the sword fight on the stairs, Artemus' stunt double's face is in plain view in several shots. (00:30:00)

Jean G

The Night of the Eccentrics - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: Behind West, when he's suspended over the electrical field, you can see the shadow of the boom mike and rigging pole moving on the wall. (00:35:05)

Jean G

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. (00:09:05)

Jean G

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. (00:28:30 - 00:33:30)

Jean G

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)

Jean G

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: Dr. Loveless' henchmen remove Artemus' leg chain. But a few scenes later, he's shown asleep in a chair, and the chain is back around his ankle. (00:28:35)

Jean G

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: When the marshal opens the train's rear door and comes in to arrest Lana, you can see wrinkles in the "sky" outside. It's really a painted cloth backdrop. (00:48:40)

Jean G

The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

New this month 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)

11291929

The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

New this month 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)

11291929

The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

New this month 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)

11291929

The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

New this month 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)

11291929

The Night of the Deadly Bubble - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: When West and Dr. Pringle back up to the steel door to escape, West is about three feet in front of it. One of the villain's henchmen bursts in, saying, "hold it." The next shot and West is about eight feet away from the door and the henchman.

Scott215

The Night of the Deadly Bubble - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: Dr. Pringle and West back up to a steel door to escape from the room and West is behind a table with lab equipment on it. A henchman charges in, gun drawn on West. The next instant shot shows the table has moved several feet to the viewer's left, presumably to make room for the impending fist fight West will have with the bad guys.

Scott215

The Night of the Vicious Valentine - S2-E20

Revealing mistake: The red-headed villain falls face first into the wedding cake. The front of his face is covered with cake and icing. West "punches" him on the face - but punches are not real - that is why West has no cake or icing on the fist that "punched" the face covered with cake and icing. (00:46:30)

11291929

The Night of the Tartar - S2-E19

Other mistake: As the coach is entering the courtyard, Count Sazanov and Anastasia are standing side-by-side. In the space between them, one can see by the gate's entrance, a car driving from right to left. (00:22:15)

11291929

The Night of the Tartar - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: When West opens the wall safe in the personal train, there is no locking mechanism shown on the opened door. Without this, the door of the safe could just be opened without rotating the combination lock on the outside. (00:01:50)

11291929

The Night of the Gypsy Peril - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: The final scene shows a government official entering the private car to take delivery of the sultan. The open door shows that it is pitch black outside, but the final shot of the private train departing shows a very blue sky. (00:48:05 - 00:49:05)

11291929

The Night of the Lord of Limbo - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: The last scene of this episode shows the private train in twilight, but when Col. Falk walks in, the outside is pitch black. The last shot shows the moving train again in twilight, not in the dark of night. (00:46:55 - 00:48:05)

The Night of the Lord of Limbo - S2-E15

Factual error: In the upper right side of the screen early in the episode, you can see an airplane flying from the right to left. (00:06:05)

11291929

The Night of the Lord of Limbo - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: As West is throwing the sword at the robber who shot Gordon, his right pant leg is very dirty above and below the knee. West immediately walks to and kneels by the fallen Gordon. West's right pant leg above the knee is completely clean. (00:24:25)

The Night of the Infernal Machine - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: Right after Zeno Baroda says, "M'Guigan, I'm going to kill you," he shoots at the door. Before the bullet is discharged, one can see the door is already damaged where the door is about to be shot. Also, one can see the streak (moving from the left to right) of the prop used to cause more damage on the door from the bullet's impact. (00:27:30)

The Night of the Infernal Machine - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: As the toy bear is making its way to Gordon, in the background to the right of the window is a plant on a wooden stand. Next to it is a full length long green curtain with gold tassled fringe at the bottom. Gordon throws the toy bear through the window, but there is no glass breaking. The tall wooden plant stand now is wrapped inside the curtain, and the golden fringe cannot be seen. (00:28:10)

The Night of the Ready-Made Corpse - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: In pursuit of the photographer, West jumps out of the window and lands on a cart of stuffed burlap sacks. West's right shoulder area, back of his suit's jacket's right arm and right pant leg area are very dirty. As West runs after the photographer, his suit keeps getting cleaner and cleaner. (00:04:35)

11291929

The Night of the Green Terror - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When Loveless crawls into the hollow log for protection against the fire, he leaves the horn by the log's entrance. Its mouth piece side is almost touching the log and is parallel to the log. The next shot shows the charred horn perpendicular to the log. (00:45:30)

11291929

The Night of the Green Terror - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: As the delivery man opens the door of the personal train car to leave, the backdrop shows greenery directly by the door. The last shot shows the train amid a very arid area with the trees way off in the distance. (00:48:25)

11291929

The Night of the Watery Death - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: When West is untied from the pillar, a close-up shot of his foot shows him stepping on the wooden plank that activates the force field. The next shot shows him walking on the plank, but the force field was activated before he steps on it (from a wide angle shot). (00:38:50)

11291929

The Night of the Watery Death - S2-E9

Other mistake: After West escapes out of the room where he was tied, he is hiding behind a tall plant by the staircase. There is a person dressed in black lying at the top of stairs who ever so slightly moves. After the fight scene, West attempts to leave from the front door where he is met by the Marquis. When West is backing up into the room, as the Marquis says, "Boys!", one of them is now descending down from the top of stairs - no one is lying on the steps or getting up from steps. (00:31:15)

11291929

The Night of the Watery Death - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: Halfway through this episode, West's hands are tied to the bedpost. He frees a hidden knife from his lower right sleeve. The close-up of his right wrist shows two rope strands binding him. When West finally gets the knife in the position to cut the rope, only one rope strand is wrapped around his wrist.

11291929

The Night of the Bottomless Pit - S2-E8

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.

11291929

The Night of the Bottomless Pit - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Before the first freeze frame, West passes out on his right side with his head resting on his right bicep. In the next scene when West regains consciousness, he is facing down with his head resting on folded arms - his head on the left forearm.

11291929

The Night of the Poisonous Posey - S2-E7

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

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.

11291929

The Night of the Golden Cobra - S2-E2

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 Eccentrics - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: Two scenes after the opening credits, West fights the strongman Titan. When Titan throws West (who is horizontally positioned on Titan's shoulders) down to the ground through the circus tent, a mattress upon which West lands is mistakenly exposed.

11291929

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. (00:04:45 - 00:06:30)

Mountainsam58

The Night of the Wolf - S2-E27

Factual error: Several airplane contrails are visible in the sky as West gallops his horse to Stefan's coronation.

Scott215

The Night of the Big Blast - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: The face of the stuntman playing the bomb-carrying Artemus Gordon double is obvious, and looks nothing like Ross Martin, who plays Gordon.

Scott215

The Night of the Watery Death - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: The knife West uses to throw at the button to turn off the disintegration machine is already embedded in the button before he throws it.

Scott215

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: West enters through a bedroom window that, from the outside, is dark inside, but when he climbs in, the room is now brightly lit.

Scott215

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: The strings used to move Dr. Loveless' plants are visible.

Scott215

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: In the pit with West and Princess Wanakee is a cat that is obviously superimposed into the scene, as West and Wanakee cast stark shadows, but the cat does not.

Scott215

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

Plot hole: Antoinette is making miniature clothes for the soon-to-be shrunken West, but when West drinks the antidote to make him normal-sized, he is wearing the same clothes which would have been shredded as he grew back to normal size.

Scott215

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: Dr. Loveless leads West and Gordon into a room that is dark when seen from the outside, but when they walk into the room, it is lit up.

Scott215

The Night of the Eccentrics - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: The eyes of Vance Markham's corpse move before he falls over.

Scott215

The Night of the Golden Cobra - S2-E2

Visible crew/equipment: The shadow of a camera is seen on the couch as Artemus gets up from the couch.

Scott215

The Night of the Golden Cobra - S2-E2

Revealing mistake: Indentations from West striking the board with his knuckles are seen before he hits it with his fist.

Scott215

The Night of the Flying Pie Plate - S2-E6

Other mistake: When Gordon and the troopers bring the unconscious Venusian ladies in and place them in the chairs, the chairs are almost in the middle of the room. When the girls come to, the backs of the chairs are right up against a wall.

Scott215

The Night of the Flying Pie Plate - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: The wires used to open and close the pie plate's entry hatch are visible.

Scott215

The Night of the Flying Pie Plate - S2-E6

Visible crew/equipment: The shadow of a boom mic is visible on a table top in the saloon.

Scott215

The Night of the Feathered Fury - S2-E17

Revealing mistake: The string used to make the rattlesnake's head move is visible.

The Night of the Wolf - S2-E27

Revealing mistake: Talamantes' giant pet spider looks pretty impressive - until it moves and reveals that its wiggling legs are made of rubber. (00:23:30)

Jean G

The Night of the Wolf - S2-E27

Continuity mistake: West's coat collar alternates from turned up to turned down several times as the shots change. This continues to occur throughout the episode. (00:17:30)

Jean G

The Night of the Wolf - S2-E27

Visible crew/equipment: When the stagecoach pulls into the station, tracks from the camera truck can be seen in the dirt. (00:06:00)

Jean G

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. (00:32:40)

Jean G

The Night of the Wolf - S2-E27

Revealing mistake: Though the stock footage is of a real wolf, the animal West wrestles with is too-obviously a dog wearing a fake pair of wolf ears. In later wrestling matches between West and the wolves, the attacking beast is a stuffed prop that never moves its legs, head or jaws at all. (00:03:30)

Jean G

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. (00:20:20)

Jean G

The Night of the Lord of Limbo - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: At the dinner table, the wine glasses vanish and reappear several times as the camera angles change. (00:16:50)

Jean G

The Night of the Tottering Tontine - S2-E16

Deliberate mistake: The knife that has just killed one of the investors doesn't have a trace of blood on it. No one had time to clean it off. (00:20:00)

Jean G

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. (00:26:50)

Jean G

The Night of the Ready-Made Corpse - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Just after the street brawl at the beginning of the episode, all the dust vanishes from West's blue suit between one shot and the next. (00:01:20)

Jean G

The Night of the Ready-Made Corpse - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: The town of Wickenberg has very peculiar sunlight: it casts shadows in several directions at once. Also notable is the far end of its main street, where a distinct line of demarcation reveals the presence of a painted studio backdrop. (00:00:10)

Jean G

The Night of the Watery Death - S2-E9

Revealing mistake: When the Marquis meets West at the door, the landscape behind him has a give-away flaw: there are prominent wrinkles visible in the cloth backdrop "sky." (00:31:20)

Jean G

The Night of the Watery Death - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: In the Mermaid Tavern, the abalone shell and West's black hat switch places on the table between takes. (00:02:40)

Jean G

The Night of the Bottomless Pit - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When he shows it to West, Mauvais holds the bottle of fire ants differently in the close-up than he does in the full shot. (00:34:30)

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)

Jean G

The Night of the Bottomless Pit - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: While interviewing West, Commandant Mauvais removes his white gloves. But after a quick cut away to West, the gloves are back on again. (00:07:30)

Jean G

The Night of the Bottomless Pit - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: After Artemus' entrance, Mauvais' left glove disappears and reappears repeatedly as he pours and drinks his wine from the red glass. (00:24:15)

Jean G

The Night of the Poisonous Posey - S2-E7

Revealing mistake: The rectangular openings from which the knives thrown at West will actually emerge are visible on the door behind him. After the knives "land," the rectangles disappear. (00:18:50)

Jean G

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. (00:43:20)

Jean G

The Night of the Poisonous Posey - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: In the funeral parlor, West is standing with his back to a wooden door. The shot cuts away briefly, then back, and now there's a blue wall behind him. Cut again, and the door is back. (00:19:05)

Jean G

The Night of the Poisonous Posey - S2-E7

Revealing mistake: West and Gordon are supposedly hiding in opposite corners of the ice house, yet each actor is crouching in the same area with the exact same blocks of plastic ice surrounding him. (00:40:30)

Jean G

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)

Jean G

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 Eccentrics - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When the Eccentrics outline their nefarious plan to assassinate Juarez, the boom mike shadow is moving on the door behind West and Gordon. (00:28:30)

Jean G

The Night of the Eccentrics - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: Tony throws two knives at West - but on the wall where the knives hit, the rectangular openings from which the blades actually emerge are delineated beforehand. Happens again a few scenes later, where slots cut in the door are already there before the knives are thrown. [Spoiler: It's inconsequential to the "revealing" error, but if you play the scene in slow motion, you can see that both times, the knives pop through from the back of the "wall." This is also how the carnival trick is performed.] (00:17:05)

Jean G

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)

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? (00:44:30)

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 Skulls - S2-E13

Character mistake: There are seven mourners dressed in black surrounding Gordon's casket - three on each side and one by the funeral officiator (who is the disguised Gordon). Later in the scene when West is talking to the disguised Gordon, Gordon says, "How do you like that - six mourners..." (00:05:20 - 00:07:10)

The Night of the Tottering Tontine - S2-E16

Plot hole: They said they couldn't leave the room because the door wouldn't open and then they all went to their rooms. How did they get out?

The Night of the Big Blast - S2-E4

Other mistake: After Artie and Mr. Peters leave the Fortune ladies at their table, Artie continues walking even after the Mardi Gras mask he is wearing falls off.

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)

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. (00:46:55)

The Night of the Skulls - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: West crashes through the French doors, breaking out the center section and leaving a partial framework on either side. In the next several shots, the center support and one broken frame reappear and disappear repeatedly. (00:02:30)

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

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when they confront Liston Day outside the house, West and Gordon are standing close together in all the frontal shots, but several feet apart in all the reverse angle views. (00:45:30)

Jean G

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. (00:09:40)

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 Eccentrics - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: West walks through the gate into the amusement park and twice passes very visible truck tire treadmarks in the dirt street. (00:09:30)

Jean G

The Night of the Raven - S2-E3

Other mistake: Balya, the Turkish representative, is killed by a knife protruding through the back of his chair. But when he falls to the floor, leaving the knife behind, there's no blood on the blade. (00:42:00)

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 Flying Pie Plate - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: After they're carried inside and placed in chairs, one of the "unconscious" women moves her arm into a more comfortable position. (00:33:00)

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. (00:46:15)
