Alias Smith and Jones (90 min.) - S1-E1

Factual error: Kyle strikes a match on the wooden floor to light the dynamite's fuse. In the early 1880s (the era in which this series is set), a portable flint-and-tinder kit was the common method of sparking a light. While "strike anywhere" matches had been invented by this time and were quite the rage in Europe (despite an alarming tendency to explode due to the volatile chemicals used), they were an unknown commodity on the American frontier until well after the turn of the century.

Factual error: The telegram delivered to the sheriff's office is in an envelope with a machine-cut, transparent cellophane address window. This type of envelope wasn't manufactured until well into the 20th Century.

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.
