Alias Smith and Jones

The Long Chase - S3-E1

Factual error: The sheriff and his posse raise huge dust clouds as they gallop down the road. But the stagecoach they're chasing, with four horses and four wheels, is on the same road and isn't raising any dust at all.

The Clementine Ingredient - S3-E4

Factual error: Clem puts the paper photo into an envelope and licks the flap to seal it. Pre-cut, pre-gummed envelopes, though they'd been invented, were big-city luxuries rare-to-non-existent in the "wild" west - they were too expensive for most people (like Clem) to afford, especially in the economically depressed decades following the Civil War. You generally cut and folded your own envelopes and glued or sealing-waxed them shut. (00:33:40)

Shootout at Diablo Station - S2-E11

Plot hole: Well within earshot of the others in the small room, Curry comments to Heyes (purely for the viewers' benefit, since Heyes already knows it) that if Lom Trevors is killed, their amnesty will go with him. This information should have blown their cover, but for some strange (and unbelievable) reason, no one wonders what he's talking about. (00:19:00)

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.

Wrong Train to Brimstone - S1-E4

Trivia: It was probably the set decorator's little joke. A sign on a privy door reads "Out of Order." Leaves one to wonder just what part of an outhouse can be out of order.
