Salud - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: Mike yells at Jessie to make himself useful and find a gun. The shadows in these two scenes are very long indicating it was shot late in the day. In the next shots and rest of the sequence, the sun is overhead.

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.

Continuity mistake: When Gus is walking across the car park near the end, he approaches the grass circle in the middle from the behind shot. However from the front shot he is past the big circle. Not something that can happen instantly. (00:35:00)
