The Return of Roy Carter - S2-E32

Revealing mistake: When Maggie the saloon girl starts gathering the money from the floor, an equipment shadow intrudes at the left of the screen. (00:04:30)

The Sport - S3-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Gino crosses the room to put on a record, the boom shadow sweeps across the wall at the top right of the screen.

Snow Queen - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: Diamond's loose tie tightens itself between shots when the doorbell rings and he crosses the room to open the door. When he picks up the phone, the tie is loose again, but when he opens the door to leave, it's tightened. (00:42:15 - 00:45:00)

Shootout at Diablo Station - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: In interior shots, the station's multi-paned window has dust and grime on all the panes. In exterior shots, as Curry talks to Lom from inside, it's apparent that there's no glass in the window at all. (00:41:00)

Shootout at Diablo Station - S2-E11

Plot hole: Curry slips out of his bonds and hides in the secret cubby hole beside the fireplace, right under the four dozing outlaws' noses. But when he's found, the wooden door over the hiding place has to be pried off - very noisily. No one else was free to nail that door shut, and there's no way he could have done it from inside - at least, not without waking up the outlaws. (00:30:30 - 00:34:50)

Shootout at Diablo Station - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Gorman's left hand is in two places at once during the card game. We see it resting on his thigh under the table. One shot later, without time for him to move, both his hands are holding his cards. (00:19:30)

Jean G

One Foot in the Grave - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: While Diamond is talking to Yvette, she leans on the record cabinet and one of its doors swings open. A few shots later, though she hasn't touched it again, the door has closed itself. (00:11:15)

Jean G

Shootout at Diablo Station - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Four horses pull the stagecoach. In long shots, the left lead horse has white fetlocks. A moment later, when the coach pulls into the station, the white-legged horse has moved to the leading right position. (00:05:00)

Jean G

One Foot in the Grave - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: Two thugs knock Diamond unconscious and leave him in a parking lot. When he wakes up, he's lying in a different spot, farther away from a painted white line, than he was when he fell. (00:05:20)

Jean G

Shootout at Diablo Station - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: The stage driver's hat is white when they leave town, black during the trip, and white again when they arrive at the station. (00:02:00 - 00:05:15)

Jean G

Shootout at Diablo Station - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: In the interior shot, Hayfoot walks out the door with the flag under his right arm. He then immediately emerges in the exterior shot with the flag under his left arm. (00:37:30)

Jean G

One Foot in the Grave - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: Diamond's hat falls off during the fight, then moves itself to a different place on the floor between takes. (00:22:15)

Jean G

The Man Who Wouldn't Talk - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: Maria's Spanish accent keeps disappearing, giving way to the actress' natural American accent, throughout the episode. Her supposedly Spanish aunt's accent is never Spanish to begin with - it's identifiably Austrian. (00:08:00)

Jean G

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)

Jean G

The Statue of San Sebastian - S1-E39

Continuity mistake: 1-40 "The Statue of San Sebastian": At the end, after Paladin shoots him, Sancho falls forward and rolls onto his left side with his face up. When the padre rushes out of the mission a moment later, the "body" is lying face down, and the priest turns it over again.

Jean G

Siege - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Catherine enters the DA's office and passes his dart board. The six red and green darts lodged in the board rearrange themselves between takes. The colors are in a mixed pattern when she enters. One shot later, all the red darts are above all the green ones. When she pulls them free, they've returned to their original pattern. (00:36:00)

Jean G

Widow's Walk - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: After the bad guys rough up Diamond in his apartment, his hair alternates several times between falling over his forehead and staying neatly combed as the camera angles change.

Jean G

Shootout at Diablo Station - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: The stagecoach station during the day and what is supposedly the same station after night are shots of two completely different buildings. The night shot is stock footage of a different set. (00:19:10 - 00:35:00)

Jean G

Dreadful Sorry, Clementine - S2-E10

Trivia: After sweeping Clementine off her feet in a big hug, Heyes has some wardrobe trouble. His hat falls off and he grabs for it, fumbling a bit before getting it back onto his head. But it's backwards. Without missing a beat, Pete Duel stayed in character, looked annoyed, yanked the hat off to reverse it and gave it a satisfied tug back into position, all the while carrying on with his lines as though nothing had happened. (00:04:30)

Jean G

The Reformation of Harry Briscoe - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: Molly's hands are tied with leather straps. But when Briscoe and Sam barge into the campsite, she pulls off her blanket and stands up with her hands free. A moment later, she once again has the leather straps binding her wrists. (00:30:15)
