Cancer Man - S1-E4

New this week Character mistake: When Walt is in the bathroom using hydrogen peroxide to clean his leg wound he received from killing Crazy 8, he notices blood on his pants. He tries to clean the bloodstain off with a toothbrush. I think that any and EVERY chemist would know that hydrogen peroxide almost instantly removes blood stains from clothing. But, instead of using this somewhat common knowledge, Walt scrubs the stain with a toothbrush under the sink. Even if he had never heard of this 'trick', given the nature of H2O2 and Walt's understanding of chemistry, he would have realized this chemical solution immediately... Especially since he used the peroxide seconds before discovering the blood stain.


Mandala - S2-E11

New this week Revealing mistake: In the scene at the very end, Walter breaks into Jesse's house to take all of their product. As he is racing out the door, Jesse is briefly seen peeking out of the bedroom. Jesse is supposed to be passed out in this scene.

Max Whitworth

4 Days Out - S2-E9

New this week Character mistake: When Walt is building the battery and explains how it works to Jesse, he says that the cathode is the positive terminal. The cathode is always the negative electrode and the anode is always the positive electrode. Walt is a chemistry teacher who would know the difference.

Fifty-One - S5-E4

New this month Continuity mistake: In the scene where Walter White buys his new car and pulls up the parkway at their house, the wheels are turned when he stops, but in the next close up shot, the wheels are straight forward.

I See You - S3-E8

Character mistake: When Hank is brought to the hospital with gunshot wounds, the ambulance and its two EMTs are met outside by two doctors. One doctor says "Let's get him two grams of oxygen. What's his hemoglobin?" This episode's technical adviser was perhaps away for this scene. How much exactly is two grams of oxygen? Orders for administering oxygen would be given in liters, such as two liters per minute (LPM). The line is presumably meant to be 'two liters of oxygen'.

Super Grover

Box Cutter - S4-E1

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Hank is on his laptop bidding on a mineral on 'Mineral Emporium', the address bar shows 'C://.' which means the web-page is in his own documents on his laptop. No way he can bid on a mineral if it's not online!


Box Cutter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Gus Fring kills the thug, a stream of blood runs between Pinkman and White's legs. When the angle cuts, the stream is now a puddle around the thug's head, no blood near the legs.


Green Light - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Walt is talking to Jesse in Jesse's car, when Jesse pulls out the bag of meth it is in a slide to seal bag. The bag changes between this and a regular ziploc bag from shot to shot.

Abiquiu - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode Jesse and Jane leave the art gallery and go to his car. From the outside, Jesse's car is right up close to the Porsche in front, but the inside shots show they are about 4-5 feet back from it.


...and the Bag's in the River - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Walt is sitting on the overpass it is clear that his car is parked on the part that straddles the median between the lanes, but when the shot is inside his car the view appears as if he is parked directly over the right lanes of traffic.

Luke Friesen

No Mas - S3-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Walter is sitting on the bed looking at the doll's eye ball, a lighting screen is reflected on it.


Felina - S5-E16

Continuity mistake: When Walter White is with the Neo-Nazis waiting for Jesse to appear, one of the thugs throws Walter's car keys and wallet on the pool table. Their position changes between shots, sometimes being parallel to each other, other times very far apart.


Hermanos - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: When Max Arsinaga is shot, the amount of blood on the border of the pool suddenly increases between frames right before the scene ends.


Ozymandias - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the shootout starts in the previous episode, Walter is handcuffed in the back of the SUV and trying to get to the floorboard to avoid the gunfire, and his glasses eventually fall off. After the gunfight when he is yelling at Jack from the back of the SUV, his glasses are back on his face, which would be hard to do handcuffed.

Box Cutter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Pinkman and White are having breakfast in the diner, the items on the table keep changing in each shot. Specifically, the jelly, the milk, the cup with the cream and, most noticeably, the rolled napkin with the cutlery inside: Sometimes folded, others opened.


Box Cutter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When the thug sees Gale dead, Gale's mouth changes between shots from open to closed.


Fly - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: When Walter is trying to kill the fly with his shoe, he leaves his notepad on the floor. Its position keeps changing between shots.


No Mas - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: The doll's eye ball falls underneath the bed, with the pupil facing Walter. When the angle changes it's facing sideways.


Rabid Dog - S5-E12

Visible crew/equipment: In the flashback scene where Jessie breaks into the Whites' house and starts pouring gasoline everywhere before Hank stops him from burning the house down, you can see the outline of a crew member exiting the right side of the dark living room at the beginning of the shot.


Box Cutter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When the thug is being dissolved and the acid fumes are rising, in the close-ups the thug is inside the barrel, yet from a wide angle, the light on the barrel reveals it to be empty. The blood stains have also disappeared.

There is a scene in this episode where Walter angrily tosses a box of pizza in the air in such a way that the pizza exits the box and lands on his roof. Before filming this scene, the crew had wondered how many takes would be required to achieve the desired result. Bryan Cranston nailed it on the first try.
