New this month 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.
New this month Continuity mistake: Mike sets a trap to taint a cartel's truck with drug residue. First, he inserts a bag of cocaine in a shoe, then throws the pair of shoes over a telephone wire. His plan is to shoot the hanging shoe so the cocaine powder pours out onto the truck as it passes under the wire. However, when he inserts the drugs it is in the right shoe, but later, it is the left shoe he shoots and has the powder in it.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
