The Wild Wild West

The Night of the Deadly Blossom - S2-E25

Plot hole: There are two rockets to be launched. The right rocket launches. It is important for the plot for the remaining rocket to explode without being launched. Without explanation, the left rocket just falls off its ramp, lands on the floor and shortly explodes. (00:46:10)

The Night of the Cadre - S2-E26

Continuity mistake: The bird flies and lands on two books. To the right of the books is a red glass bottle with a frame document behind it. The next shot of bird shows it atop the red glass bottle which is now to the left of the books, away from the framed document. (00:01:10 - 00:02:45)

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

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)

The Night of the Surreal McCoy - S2-E23

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)

The Night of the Surreal McCoy - S2-E23

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)

The Night of the Surreal McCoy - S2-E23

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)

The Night of the Surreal McCoy - S2-E23

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)

The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

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)

The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

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)

The Night of the Brain - S2-E21

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)

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.

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.

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

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)
