Box Cutter - S4-E1

Corrected entry: Jessie is shorter than Gail so when he shoots Gail in the eye his gun must be angled up. However in the scene the bullet continues through Gail to hit the kettle, which is about waist height for Gail.

Correction: The bullet could easily have changed trajectory after entering Gail, if it hit a rib, for example.

Season 1 generally

Corrected entry: Walter White correctly starts to lose his hair at the beginning of the chemotherapy. The errors occur afterwards (I know this from my own experience): 1. The mustache would fall out as well, 2. Walt has hair stubble throughout the treatment (and even has to shave his head!), while in reality a "chemo-head" is simply bald as a baby face since the hair is gone.

Correction: Every person's hair loss is different. My friend is going through chemo and basically has a whole head of baby hair...thin, wispy, but still there. Not everyone's hair reacts to chemo the same way.

Down - S2-E4

Corrected entry: The pink bear is missing his eye on different sides. For example in episode Seven Thirty-Seven he is missing his left eye, but in this episode he is missing his right. Both scenes are right at the beginning of the episodes. (00:01:10)

Murron

Correction: It's a reflection.

Hermanos - S4-E8

Corrected entry: Max Arsiniega's accent is closer to Cuban than Chilean; furthermore, Don Eladio and his thugs are not Mexican natives, and some are obviously trying hard to speak Spanish.

Sacha Premium member

Correction: Max never claimed to be from Chile, only that he studied there. Same can be said for Eladio's men. The cartel does employ Americans.

Over - S2-E10

Corrected entry: When Walt approaches the two dealers in the parking lot of the building supply store, the Jeep pickup parked beside the dealers' RV is much further away when it changes shots.

Correction: This is due to the angle of the cameras. Not a mistake.

Half Measures - S3-E12

Corrected entry: The silver car that Mike drives shows a New Mexico license plate to the rear, but Texas inspection and registration stickers on the windshield.

Texijapi

Correction: A lot of cars in New Mexico are inspected in Texas before being imported there.

Box Cutter - S4-E1

Corrected entry: When the thug sees Gale dead, Gale's mouth changes between shots from open to closed.

Sacha Premium member

Correction: Gale's mouth remains open the same amount. However the two camera angles are at different heights and so it gives the impression of being closed.

One Minute - S3-E7

Corrected entry: When the arms dealer is shot, he opens his shirt open wide to reveal his vest, raises his hand and removes his cap. When the shot changes his shirt is closed, his hand is lowered, and the cap is on.

Sacha Premium member

Correction: He opens the top button, and shows the vest. Does it back up and gets shot. The shooter then rips the arm dealer's shirt open to retrieve the bullet. His hat also remains on the whole time.

4 Days Out - S2-E9

Corrected entry: Near the start of the episode, Walt sees his PET/CT scan, the tissue mass is in the left lung. But later in the episode, the scan is reversed when the doctor is showing it to Walt. (00:03:00 - 00:44:20)

djm

Correction: When Walt first sees his PET/CT, he is looking at a reflection of the monitor, not the actual monitor. So, it would be normal for the image to be reversed.

Season 1 generally

Corrected entry: Walt steals 2 masks from the school lab. When they go cook and Crazy8 and Emilio show up, he kills them with the gas. Because of the fire he puts one of the masks on himself and the other one on Jesse and they drive away with both masks, but the DEA find one of the masks at the cook site.

Hmhmh

Correction: The mask was found by a little girl. Her mother gave it to the investigators while they were at the cook site, but that's not where it was found. Walt discarded it where the RV ran off the road.

Gray Matter - S1-E5

Corrected entry: When Badger is demonstrating the "Helicopter" to Jesse, he spins the sign in such a way that he would be holding on to something in the middle of the arrow on his side. However, when he brings the arrow down, you can see that there is nothing he could have been holding on to. (00:03:00)

A Demon Premium member

Correction: He doesn't "hold" onto anything, he puts his finger in the hole and spins it around his finger. You can see his finger sticking out as he raises the arrow up, in the middle of the "O" in TO.

Box Cutter - S4-E1

Corrected entry: When the thug is being dissolved and the acid fumes are rising, in the close-ups the thug is inside the barrel, yet from a wide angle, the light on the barrel reveals it to be empty. The blood stains have also disappeared.

Sacha Premium member

Correction: If you are referring to the shot where the acid is being poured in, the head is hidden by the bottle and thus appears empty. The blood remains as well. If you are referring to when the container is lifted by the forklift, there is no way to tell how long has passed between Victor going into the tub and the container being lifted on the forklift. Hence the acid could have dissolved the blood, body, knife and gun.

Rabid Dog - S5-E12

Corrected entry: How does Walt know Jesse has the Hello Kitty phone that Saul gave Jesse? He calls and leaves Jesse a message on that phone, but there's no way he could know the number, or that Jesse had the phone.

Correction: Saul could have told him.

End Times - S4-E12

Corrected entry: The ricin poison that was originally intended to kill Gus, and which was 'apparently' intended for use on Brock, doesn't make sense. Brock was fine in the morning, but fell ill at night, seems legit. However, Jesse exclaims to Walt that he had the cigarette containing the poison the same morning. Earlier in the series, Walt had explained that after indigestion, it would take 36 hours for any effects to have taken place, so, in this instance, Brock could not be hospitalized within 12 hours.

Callum Lloyd Edwards

Correction: Brock isn't poisoned with ricin. He is poisoned by the berries of a Lily of the Valley plant.

4 Days Out - S2-E9

Corrected entry: When Walt is building the battery and explains how it works to Jesse, he says that the cathode is the positive terminal. The cathode is always the negative electrode and the anode is always the positive electrode. Walt is a chemistry teacher who would know the difference. (00:37:15 - 00:38:30)

Correction: "Cathode" can be negative or positive (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cathode).

Ozymandias - S5-E14

Corrected entry: When Walt calls his wife at the beginning (the flashback), he tells her Bogdan is keeping him late. His wife also says she likes the name Holly for the baby. But if you watch the beginning episodes, Walt quits the car wash right away. And also finds out he's having a baby girl fairly quickly (episode 2 or 3 I think) Nowhere in that time frame did Walt and Jessie go cook. They had only cooked once so far, and then had to deal with Crazy 8 and the other dude. So Walt was never working for Bogdan except for maybe when they first cooked, but even then he would not yet have known he was having a girl. There is no way the timeline can work with that phone call flashback.

Correction: Walt quits his job at the car wash in episode 1, but he does not tell Skylar. He continues to lie to her about the job for weeks, until she calls the car wash and discovers that he actually quit weeks ago. So him lying to her about Bogdan keeping him late fits with the story. He and Jesse had multiple cooks before Skylar finds out the truth about the car wash.

Cancer Man - S1-E4

Corrected entry: Jesse takes a hit from his pipe, at which point, you can see a vaporizer device in his hand. This is used in production to create the white vapor smoke that they exhale while smoking. It has a metal mouthpiece and what looks like a small LCD on it. It is not a glass meth pipe. (00:14:10)

Correction: That is not a handheld vaporizer with a metal mouthpiece it is just his torch that he used to light the meth pipe with. You can see he lights it with his left hand and then in the next shot his left hand slightly moves and shows the tip of the torch.

I See You - S3-E8

Corrected entry: During the scene in which Gus is talking on the phone with a "colleague" of his, the boss of the two assassins who shot Hank, it is night time and the surroundings outside of Los Pollos are dark. However, when gunshots are being heard in the background and Gus snaps his cell phone in half it is daytime. The sky is blue behind him and the sun is shining off of his head. (00:43:10 - 00:45:00)

TheLongCon

Correction: The "sky" in the background of Fring's head is the lights of the restaurant. The "sun" which is shining off his head is the light post under which he is standing. The scene is and remains completely in the night.

Negro Y Azul - S2-E7

Corrected entry: In the desert, after Hank witnesses the head on the turtle, he runs off to his pick-up truck and catches his breath on the driver's side (left). The next shot is from behind the other cops grouped around the turtle. The vehicles can be seen in the background with Hank standing casually on the right hand side of the pick-up with the left door still open but no-one behind it. The shot then returns to Hank on the driver's side.

Correction: In the shot showing the vehicles, the driver's door is open and there is definitely someone standing behind it, you can see a black sleeve through the window and legs underneath the door. The man "casually" standing on the right must be another agent, not Hank.

Down - S2-E4

Corrected entry: In the opening teaser scene they show a man in a hazmat suit bagging evidence from the later revealed plane crash. One of the bags contain the eyeball from the pink bear. However in a future episode Hank discovers it in the pool filter, after the hazmat team would have bagged it. (00:00:55)

Correction: The teddy bear had two eyes. One was recovered by the disaster cleanup crew, the other ended up in Walter's pool filter.

Quotes

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!

Mistakes

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.

Trivia

The trousers that Walt lost in the desert during the first episode appear briefly when he is rolling the barrel with money.
