Everything Else You Can Steal - S2-E13

Corrected entry: Blake spies on Heyes, Curry and Louise as they sit together on the picnic blanket. But in the view through his telescopic gunsight, Louise is missing. When the shot returns to the camera's normal POV, she's sitting right between Heyes and Curry, where Blake's sight couldn't possibly have missed her. (00:33:30)

Jean G

Correction: Blake's sight didn't miss her. Watch when he pans from Curry to Heyes and you will see the back of her head.

The Posse That Wouldn't Quit - S2-E5

Corrected entry: Bridget shoots ten cans off the fence with her rifle. No one goes over to put up more cans, but in the next moment, there are six more cans set up for Curry to shoot off with his revolver. (00:17:00)

Jean G

Correction: If you look closely when Bridgette is acting like she can't hit the cans, there are about twenty cans on the fence.

Return to Devil's Hole - S1-E7

Corrected entry: After he's taken to the bunkhouse, Hamilton is examined and it's determined that he hit his head on the wall when he fell. But we saw him fall - through an open doorway. He never touched the wall. (00:22:45 - 00:26:15)

Jean G

Correction: If you watch closely, Hamilton hits his head on the outside wall of the porch.

Jailbreak at Junction City - S2-E3

Corrected entry: When the posse traps the bank robbers in the livery barn, the doors on both ends of the building slide shut, meeting in the middle. But in the exterior shot, as they all exit, one of the same doors that slid shut a moment before now swings open on hinges. (00:41:00)

Jean G

Correction: If you look at the scene closely, you will see the door that swings open is inside the sliding door. There are three handles on the outside of the door.

Jailbreak at Junction City - S2-E3

Corrected entry: All four bank robbers are herded into a cell with their hands tied behind them. When the door is locked, they're still tied. But a few shots later, without enough time for them to have untied each other, all their hands are free. (00:25:00)

Jean G

Correction: Right after being locked in, one of the men approaches the cell door to ask the deputy to free his hands, indicating that that process continued until all four had their hands free. The camera shifts away to another shot, indicating that it was not necessary to show all four being freed, only to indicate that it was being done.

Return to Devil's Hole - S1-E7

Corrected entry: After their fight outside, Heyes and Big Jim go into the house and both pour glasses of whiskey. Heyes then places his glass on the table and surprise-punches Big Jim, who was still holding his glass. But in the next shot, Jim's glass is no longer in his hand - Heyes somehow has it and is giving it back to him. (00:20:45)

Jean G

Correction: This is not a continuity error. Just as Heyes begins his left hook into Jim's midriff, you can see a move of his right shoulder, indicating that he considerately lifted the glass out of Jim's hand as Jim doubled over, thus having the glass available to offer Jim after Jim hits the floor.

McGuffin - S3-E10

Corrected entry: How Heyes and Curry manage to be riding the same horses they started out with after a 50-mile train ride is a mystery. The train didn't have a livestock car. Flying equines, perhaps? (00:24:30 - 00:28:15)

Jean G

Correction: Because they weren't riding the same horses. Heyes is seen riding a black horse with no white markings on the nose towards the train station. Afterwards he's riding a lighter color horse with white nose markings. The other two horses have different, though similar, white nose markings as well.


The Man Who Broke the Bank at Red Gap - S2-E17

Factual error: An egotistical, prissy and dishonest lawyer like Mr. Fletcher wouldn't make the mistake of allowing his name to be misspelled on his office door. It reads "Winfred Fletcher." His first name, as it's pronounced throughout the episode, is "Winford." (00:26:50)

Hannibal Heyes: Look, Wheat, I agree, we gotta bust him out. But it's gonna take finesse.
Kyle Murtry: Wheat didn't bring any of that.

The Long Chase - S3-E1

Trivia: The stiff-necked, humorless Sheriff Tankersley was a nose-thumbing parody of a real (and really unpopular) person. William Tankersley was a notoriously prissy network censor who was infamous at the time for trying (unsuccessfully) to stifle the naughty bits on All in the Family.
