Abiquiu - S3-E11

New this month Continuity mistake: In the car driving after seeing Saul, Skyler tells Walt "This is what happens when you decide to pay the bills with drug money" The shot from behind shows Walt's head completely in the shadows. When it cuts to a closer angle, suddenly he has light around his head and part of his neck with only a small shadow cast on him.

Abiquiu - S3-E11

New this month Continuity mistake: When Jesse and Andrea are making out on the couch, they discuss having a bear. And she mentions she's cleaned out of anything else. During this sentence, they are positioned where Jesse is leaning forward looking down at her. But mid sentence there is a cut, and suddenly he's leaning his head back with her looking down at him.

Abiquiu - S3-E11

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.

Sunset - S3-E6

Fly - S3-E10

New this month Continuity mistake: When Walt finally goes back home and is sleeping in bed, the shadows of his window blinds are cast over his face and body. But his nose is pretty clear out in the light. When the camera cuts to a close up, suddenly the shadows are over his nose.

Kafkaesque - S3-E9

New this month Continuity mistake: As Saul is trying to explain to Jesse that he needs to launder his money and is trying to get him to buy the nail salon, Jesse says he's not going to and is looking right at him. It cuts to a different angle showing Saul's face and now suddenly Jesse is partly looking off to the side.

Sunset - S3-E6

New this month Continuity mistake: Walt asks Gale to recite the poem he mentions, which Gale does, reluctantly. When he starts the first line, the camera is behind him and he lifts his head to look up at Walt straight in the eyes. When the camera cuts back to a shot of his face, he's suddenly looking down again.

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.

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)

Green Light - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Walt is talking to Jesse in Jesse's car, when Jesse pulls out the bag of meth it is in a slide to seal bag. The bag changes between this and a regular ziploc bag from shot to shot. (00:19:30)

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)

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.

RoyT

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.

Continuity mistake: The doll's eye ball falls underneath the bed, with the pupil facing Walter. When the angle changes it's facing sideways. (00:31:10)

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)

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!
