Other mistake: In the famous mugshot of Walter against a height chart, the chart goes up in nice 2 inch increments until 5'8." It then jumps to 6'0", completely skipping 5'10". Did they forget there are 12 inches in a foot, not 10?

Season 2 generally

Other mistake: Throughout the show, during the into credits, people's names have 1 or 2 letters replaced by green characters to symbolise elements from the periodic table. However, Michael Slovis has the 'Ch' highlighted. There is no 'Ch' on the periodic table. (00:03:20)

Sunset - S3-E6

Other mistake: Gus is talking to his employee about the twins while writing something on a clipboard. However, he is using the opposite end of the pen and just pretending to write. (00:14:40)

Pilot - S1-E1

Other mistake: Walter's pants flying in the air defy the laws of physics. The RV is racing forward and the pants somehow find themselves in front of the RV floating through the air. One could say that the pants perhaps flew forward when the RV 'hit a bump' perhaps. However the RV would have to hit a considerable sudden stop to get the pants to fly forward. The RV then runs over the pants which have fallen to the ground from in front of the RV. This could be ignored as somehow possible due to some strange anomaly. Except near the end of the episode. We see the same pants fly off the mirror of the RV flying backwards. Making it impossible for those same pants to be run over from in front of the RV especially due to the speed at which they are flying backwards straight into the camera shot. (00:00:15)

Show generally

Other mistake: The configuration of the front side of the house does not match the configuration from the inside. The outside view looking at the house from the street indicates (1) there are no rooms to the right of the garage (when inside there are rooms on the side of the garage). Also when looking at house from street side, to the left of the front door the house comes forward. When inside, (at least in episode 13, season 3) the inside of the house does not extend forward towards the street.

Suggested correction: If you research "The Breaking Bad House" you will see that the house used was filmed both inside and out, so this error couldn't have happened.

The garage is shown to have an interior door. Walt comes through it when he is showing baby Holly the money hidden behind the insulation. However, the is no corresponding door inside the house. The interior house scenes, at least most of them, must be a set.

Bullet Points - S4-E4

Other mistake: When Walt is ringing Jesse to find out where he is, the call goes straight to voicemail. However, when he rings Jesse from inside Jesse's bedroom, the phone rings before going to voicemail. The mistake being that the call should have gone straight to voicemail. (00:41:00)

Salud - S4-E10

Other mistake: Don Eladio tells Gus that every two years he has to give him a "paliza" which the subtitles translate as "a spank". A spank is an "azote" (Spanish) or "nalgada" (Mexican Spanish). A "paliza" is a beating, way more violent than a spank.

Breakage - S2-E5

Other mistake: When Walt walks into the house at the start we can see the kitchen has a window and it's bright sunshine coming through. However, a few minutes later we see the kitchen behind Walt and it's in complete darkness despite the previously mentioned window. (00:04:50)

Hermanos - S4-E8

Other mistake: We see Gus watching the camera feed on his laptop. The camera is seen panning, despite not being controlled by Gus. The camera shown does not automatically pan. (00:05:45)

Hazard Pay - S5-E3

Other mistake: Jesse and his girlfriend and Brock are all apparently playing the video game, but when they show the TV it's only split screen so only 2 are really playing.

Mas - S3-E5

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.

One Minute - S3-E7

Other mistake: At the end, we see the gunfight between Tuco's cousins and Hank. Several shots are fired, cars smash into each other, a woman runs off screaming. So not a "quiet" attack. However, as the camera zooms out to show the carnage, 2 people who are not involved in the attack, are just stood talking in the car park. A bit odd since there has been a very clear shoot out. (00:44:50)

Suggested correction: Nobody is actually standing in the car park. People are standing around on the sidewalks talking to each other about what was going on, keeping their distance. Personally I would keep a bigger distance, but whatever distance they feel safe with.

As the camera pans out you can see some people only a couple of cars away.

All I see are bystanders at a safe distance. At least from a distance they don't know where the actual shooting took place. It looks perfectly reasonable to me for the situation.

Trivia: The website Walter Jr. creates to raise money for Walter Sr. can be found at http://www.savewalterwhite.com/. The donation link used to send the viewer to a legitimate cancer charity's website, but now just goes to AMC's home page. (00:20:00)

More trivia for Breaking Bad

Chosen answer: There are several possibilities. Gus primarily does it to make an example out of Victor. Victor is one of Gus' most loyal henchman, and yet he had no problem killing him. Meaning it doesn't matter how loyal or valuable Walt is, he can still be killed and it won't bother Gus. However, Walt tells Jesse that perhaps Victor "flew too close to the sun." Meaning, Victor over stepped his bounds by learning how to cook meth. Gus didn't appreciate Victor's initiative and Gus only wants his employees to do the job they're given. Again, telling Walt and Jesse to do their job or else.

Bishop73

I think it was a combination of anger over Gayle's death and Victor being seen by witnesses makes Victor very vulnerable and therefore a dangerous liability to Fringe's empire.

By this point, the mugshot of Victor will have been spread around as a suspect in Gail's death. Victor had been come too hot to handle, so to say, so had to go.
