In the scene where they finally approach the water hole, if you look at the prisoner's left hand you can see that the shackles aren't fastened at all. It falls so far down the back of his hand he could have easily slipped it off.
The sheep herder Changra is described as having been brought from Australia with the Tyson family. Australia is the only continent where the entire indigenous population maintained a single kind of adaptation-hunting and gathering-into modern times. More than 200 different Aboriginal languages were spoken and most Aborigines were bilingual or multilingual.
When the man at the depot loads his shotgun, you can clearly see the tan marks for a modern watch on his wrist.
When Muley shaves off his beard, there are no tan lines on his face whatsoever. The part of his face that had been covered by beard should have been much lighter in color.
When Matt and his prisoner are on the way back to Dodge, Matt is stabbed in the arm. There is no blood on his sleeve, and no visible wound. Yet, when he is seen in Doc's office, his sleeve is soaked with blood, and Doc has to stitch the wound.
While Virgil and the cook are taking care of Matt, one of them spills a spoonful of the milk right down the front of Matt's shirt, but neither his chest or his shirt is the slightest bit wet.
When the cook and some of the other cowboys go to tend to Matt's prisoner, the cook takes the spoon out of the bowl of milk. Then, when Virgil takes over feeding Matt the milk, the spoon is still in the bowl.
In the scene where Peter tells his father about the fight, there is a moving shadow for a brief second along the right hand side of the screen.
Goof: The bruises on Lori's arms disappear after the scene in which Doc has tended the wounded bandit, even though only a few hours have gone by.
goof: Thad calls the blacksmith, Mr. Stuck, instead of Mr. Struck.
I think this applies to all of the later episodes. While watching the TV Land "First" episode tonight, I noticed during the closing credits that the Kansas River cutoff of the north east corner of the Kansas map was missing. In the end credits, the rifles are on the right side of the screen and the map is on the left on adjoining walls. So I backed up and watched the fight scene in the last act. When the camera pans around the Marshal's office, the guns are on the left side and the map on the right.
The goof is that in the credits, for whatever reason, they used a mirror of the set--it's backwards!
