Better Call Saul

Fall - S3-E9

Bali Ha'i - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Near the start when Mike's pulling over, the car parks literally perfectly along the side of the road. Seconds later when camera shows him stepping out it's at least 12 inches away from the curb. (00:11:00)

Fifi - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: At the end of the scene at the Air Force base, when Jimmy is about to snap the photo of the military members with "Fudge", the film students roll Fudge in this wheelchair over to pose by Fifi, the B-29. At this moment, they've just scrambled to get Fudge back in the chair with the movie camera on his lap, concealed by the plaid blanket. The blanket is in view as the boys roll Fudge over there. We then cut to Jimmy, crouching with a disposable camera given to him by the USAF captain. Cut back to the group posing, Jimmy says, "Smile!" and Fudge says, "Cheese!" In this brief moment, the blanket on Fudge's lap is suddenly gone, along with the camera. You can see Fudge seated in his costume, holding up his bottle of water, but no blanket, no camera. Cut back to Jimmy, shaking his head. Then cut back to the group posing, and the blanket is back in place on Fudge's lap. (00:30:45)

Fall - S3-E9

Factual error: When Mike is meeting with Lydia in her office, you can see an undeveloped hillside from Lydia's office window with sagebrush and other desert shrubs common in New Mexico. However, Lydia's office is in Houston, Texas, where such plants do not grow. Houston also does not sit in the desert, it lies in a coastal plain where it is much greener than Albuquerque.

Nailed - S2-E9

Factual error: At the start of the scene where Jimmy films a commercial at the school, kids are shown on the playground. Many of them are wearing leggings or skinny jeans. The episode is set in 2002, when the trend was flare and straight legged jeans. The skinny jeans and leggings trend didn't become widespread until 2009 or 2010.

Breathe - S4-E2

Pimento - S1-E9

Factual error: When Mike is waiting in the parking garage with Sobchak for Pryce to arrive, the AT&T logo is prominently displayed on an office building in the background. This logo is the new style introduced in late 2005 and didn't exist in 2002 when the show is set. (00:11:25)

Something Beautiful - S4-E3

Factual error: Gus is walking around the Central New Mexico Community College. The building seen in the background is the Student Resource Center. This episode is set in 2003 but that building didn't exist until 2010.

Fall - S3-E9

Factual error: The shoes Jimmy gives Irene are Skechers Shape-Ups. The episode takes place in 2003 but Shape-Ups were not made until the late 2000s.

Bingo - S1-E7

Visible crew/equipment: At the end of the episode Saul is sitting in his office and you can see the shadow from a crew member in the windows. The member even moves. (00:50:41)

Wexler v. Goodman - S5-E6

Factual error: A copy of Jordan B Peterson's book 12 Rules for Life can be seen in the shot when Mike goes to a library. This book came out in 2019 and the show is meant to take place in the early 2000s. (00:21:07)

Something Beautiful - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: The Salamancas brothers burn Arturo's body inside his car. When the brothers leave, there is a scenic tree a short distance down the road from the burning car. It balances the shot. When the camera angle changes to a wide view, there are no trees anywhere near the car.

Something Beautiful - S4-E3

Factual error: Gus is walking through a college campus. In the background, the students are wearing clothing styles from the 2010s such as skinny jeans, but the episode is set in 2003 when those styles didn't exist yet.

Namaste - S5-E4

Factual error: When Jimmy is in Tucumcari, New Mexico, there is a shot of him talking to Kim and in the distance there is a mountain range. Those are the Manzano Mountains, which are over 150 miles away from Tucumcari. Not only that, besides one small mountain south of the town, no major ranges can be seen from the town at all. Also, they're not even on the right side of the mountains. The side that is shown is the western face of the range, Tucumcari is east of those mountains.

Nacho - S1-E3

Other mistake: When Jimmy goes looking for the Kettlemans, he climbs up the Sandia Mountains but finds them in a flat forested area. To get to a level forested area in the Sandias, Jimmy would have had to climb all the way to the top, which would be suicidal, because the area of the Sandias he goes into is extremely rugged and steep, plus he goes in there with nothing but a suit. Even the Kettlemans would be insane going that same route with two kids, a tent, and camping supplies in tow.

Bingo - S1-E7

Other mistake: In episode 3 Jimmy says to Kim that the Kettlemans bought a boat using some of the money they embezzled. Nevertheless, when Mike breaks into the Kettleman's house and gets the money back which later is delivered to the district attorney in this episode, it's the whole amount without any money missing.

Mijo - S1-E2

Trivia: The guy who breaks the two brothers' legs is Tuco Salamanca, a drug dealer that makes a deal to sell the blue meth with Walter White in Breaking Bad.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: I'm not sure this qualifies as trivia. Throughout the entire series, there are several characters that had very prominent roles in Breaking Bad. Tuco is, without question, extremely recognizable the moment we see him on screen.

Wine and Roses - S6-E1

Question: When the house is being cleared out, there's a scene in the closet and as the camera is panning around, there's a ball cap sitting on a box with a logo I can't recognize or make out. Does anyone know what the logo is and if it came from an earlier episode or a "Breaking Bad" one?

Answer: It might be the Panavision cap he wore when directing his terrible commercials.
