30 mistakes

Genres: Crime, Drama

Ozymandias - S5-E14

New this month Continuity mistake: When Walt calls his wife at the beginning (the flashback), he tells her Bogdan is keeping him late. His wife also says she likes the name Holly for the baby. But if you watch the beginning episodes, Walt quits the car wash right away. And also finds out he's having a baby girl fairly quickly (episode 2 or 3 I think) Nowhere in that time frame did Walt and Jessie go cook. They had only cooked once so far, and then had to deal with Crazy 8 and the other dude. So Walt was never working for Bogdan except for maybe when they first cooked, but even then he would not yet have known he was having a girl. There is no way the timeline can work with that phone call flashback.

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!

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'.

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.

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.

...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.

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.

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.

Hermanos - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: When Eladio asks for drinks to be served to Fring and Max, his arm swaps between being raised or lowered, depending on 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.

No Mas - S3-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Schrader is helping Walter move out, a boom mic is reflected on the car's side.

Salud - S4-E10

Factual error: Don Eladio tells Gus that every two years he has to give him a "paliza" which the subtitles translate as "a spank". A spank is an "azote" (Spanish) or "nalgada" (Mexican Spanish). A "paliza" is a beating, way more violent than a spank.

Trivia

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.
