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.
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.
