Better Call Saul

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)

Sabrosito - S3-E4

Factual error: When Mike is watching the DEA raid the ice cream shop, a Ford Crown Victoria P71 for the Albuquerque Police Department is shown. These models were not in use until 2004, a few years after when the show is set. In 2002, APD was still using Chevrolet Caprices.

Slip - S3-E8

Factual error: The scene where Jimmy is doing community service, they are under the Juan Tabo Bridge that crosses the Tijeras Arroyo (stream). This bridge was not built until 2006. The episode is set in 2003.

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.

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

Character mistake: When Jimmy and the film crew are on the school campus, they are approached by the school administrators. Jimmy mentions an "Annette" who works at the superintendent's office. One of the admin asks the other if they "know an Annette downtown." The superintendent's office is not located in downtown Albuquerque, it is in uptown Albuquerque, several miles east of downtown.

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.

Fall - S3-E9

Factual error: In the mall where Jimmy meets Irene there is the logo of the jewelry Pandora in the background when Jimmy is going up the escalator. Pandora didn't open its first store in New Mexico before 2013. (00:27:00 - 00:28:00)

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.

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.

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.

Fall - S3-E9

Factual error: When Jimmy is doing "stretches" in the mall, waiting for Irene and her friends, there is a Crazy 8 store behind him. This episode is set in 2003, the first Crazy 8 store did not open until 2007.

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.

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.

Uno - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Jimmy is talking outside the courthouse, pretending to be his secretary, he puts his case on his car roof. In the first shot the white aerial is visible in front of his case. Shortly afterwards it's hidden, either behind or on top of his case, without him touching anything.

Marco - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: While talking to Marco, when the bartender asks them if they want something else, James McGill is holding a beer bottle in his right hand. In the next shot the bottle is in the center of the table. (00:20:00)

Teo

Expenses - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When Nacho holds up the paper with the pill capsule in it for Daniel, he holding it between his index and middle finger. When the camera angle changes he's now holding it between his thumb and index finger.

Marco - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: During Jimmy's rant during Bingo, B5 is flashing on the main board (the last number he read out loud). It switches to B2 flashing when he says he got on top of the BMW. B5 is then seen flashing again, on the board in the back, when he's finishing his rant.
