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)

Mas - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When Gus is showing Walt the lab, the washer leans forward with one item hanging out. Camera cuts and 2 items are hanging out. This is an instant cut and no time for the item to fall into the position. (00:21:20)

Caballo sin Nombre - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Walt throws the pizza on the roof, it lands 5 rows up from the edge. When the camera cuts to on the garage roof, it's only 3 rows up. Also the amount of topping changes between the angles. (00:34:30)

No Mas - S3-E1

Factual error: The final scene of the episode, the cousins are hiding with other migrants amid a farm truck's bales of straw. One of the migrants claims they are in Texas. However, the mountains in the distance are the Manzano Mountains which are just several miles southeast of Albuquerque, more than 200 miles away from the border with Texas and Mexico. The migrant claims he has gone through this route 3 times, so it is unlikely this would simply be a character mistake.

Green Light - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Hank is standing between the ATM and the pumps at the gas station, the shadow cast by the roof over the pumps shifts between shots. The shot from away, taken next to the pole with the Indian logo was taken earlier in the day, casting a long shadow. The other shots have a higher sun which has moved by several hours.

Caballo sin Nombre - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: While Walt is out of his car and arguing with the police officer, there are other cars visible in the far distance behind him. The cars appear and disappear in between shots, there isn't time for them to pass and we don't hear them pass. (00:03:30)

Abiquiu - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode Jesse and Jane leave the art gallery and go to his car. From the outside, Jesse's car is right up close to the Porsche in front, but the inside shots show they are about 4-5 feet back from it.

I.F.T. - S3-E3

Revealing mistake: When the Mexican drug dealer is painting on the tortoise, he is very obviously just moving the brush and not writing anything. (00:03:15)
