New this month Audio problem: After Walt Jr and Skylar leave the room, Marie starts to leave. The camera is focused on Hank once she walks off screen and you can hear the sound of the door closing behind her. It then cuts to showing her suddenly just getting to the door and opening it to walk out.

Dead Freight - S5-E5

New this month Audio problem: The engine's horn sound constantly changes before the train is robbed. And when the train begins to move again, a railroad crossing bell is heard, even though the crossing ahead just has crossbucks.

AAL117

Mas - S3-E5

New this month Other mistake: At an RV park, Hank is investigating an RV that looks like the one he saw in the pictures from the ATM camera. Desperate for a vantage point, he goes around to the back of the RV and starts to climb up the ladder on the passenger rear side of the vehicle. This RV is not supported at this time in a permanent fixture, as it's revealed shortly there after that the occupants were just on vacation. So Hank's full body weight getting on the back corner of the RV should have shifted it on it's suspension and alerted the people inside that something was going on far sooner than it did.

Seven Thirty-Seven - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: At the end of the episode when Tuco shows up at Walter's house in the backseat of Jesse's car, he tells Walter to get in. As they drive off, the shot pans out to show the street sign across from Walter's house. The sign says Piermont, which is the real name of the street. In the show, the Whites live on Negra Arroyo Lane. (00:48:00)

Pilot - S1-E1

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! (00:24:15)

Jeun

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'. (00:02:25)

Walter White: Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? Do you know how much I make a year? I mean, even if I told you, you wouldn't believe it. Do you know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going into work? A business big enough that it could be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly up. Disappears. It ceases to exist, without me. No, you don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger, Skyler. I AM the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot, and you think that of me? No! I am the one who knocks!
