Mandala - S2-E11

New this month Continuity mistake: After Combo is killed and Skinny leaves the operation, Jesse and Walt are in Saul's office, explain what happened, and they start bickering. From a side angle you see Saul lean forward in his chair as he yells "Guys guys!" to try and stop them. It then cuts to an angle showing Saul from the front and he's suddenly leaning back in his chair, not forward.

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)

ABQ - S2-E13

Factual error: When the planes crash over Albuquerque, when the bear is falling towards Walt's house, there is a quick shot of Albuquerque suburbia and mountains. Two major streets are visible, the one on the right is Eubank Blvd and the one in the lower left is Wyoming Blvd, both which run north and south through the city. This means the shot is facing north. There are no mountains immediately north of Albuquerque as shown. The closest mountain range, the Sandia Mountains, are on the east side and wouldn't be in that shot. The closest mountain range in the north are the Jemez Mountains, which are 40 miles away. They would barely be visible in that shot (they would look like blue hills in the distance).

ABQ - S2-E13

Factual error: When the bear is falling through the sky after the plane crash, it is shown through its point of view. When it starts falling, a shot of northern Albuquerque is shown but when the bear turns over, suddenly it is facing the east. Eubank Blvd is a major north and south street, is seen in the shot of the north. In the latter shot, Candelaria Rd, which is a east and west street is visible. When the bear spun over, it should be showing Eubank Blvd going south.

ABQ - S2-E13

Character mistake: Skyler places the baby's seat in the table, but forgets to buckle it up. It paces up the scene, but no mother in her right mind would forget this, plus the seat would fly away right after the engine starts.

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!
