Morton's Fork - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Greta sits down with the shotgun, it is pointing directly at Lou, horizontally angled. However, after a cut, the gun is suddenly pointing diagonally, at an angle. It is also strange that Lou, a former police officer, doesn't caution his novice granddaughter against pointing a loaded gun at him. (00:40:15)

Breaking Bad (2008)

Fly - S3-E10

Audio problem: When Walt yells at Jesse through the lab's entrance door, the sound is very muffled, as if the door is a major insulator of sound. However, later, when Jesse yells at Walt through the same door, the sound is much clearer, and hardly muffled at all. (00:22:15 - 00:23:55)

Thirty-Eight Snub - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: When Walt is practicing his pistol draw in his apartment, he drags over a chair in which to sit during his practice. When he is dragging it, he aligns it directly against the carpet. However, a few seconds later, another shot shows that the chair is now inches away from the carpet, despite him never adjusting the chair.

Box Cutter - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Gus starts to walk away from where he killed Victor, he drops the Box Cutter, and we see it landing. However, after a cut to the next shot, its position has changed. It is no longer sitting on the line in the floor, and it is pointing 180° in the other direction. We can also see from Walt's shadow that the Box Cutter has moved quite a bit further away from Walt.

The Bookstore - S9-E17

Factual error: When Peterman is making a toast at his party, he quotes what he says is something said by the Papa New Guineans, and he proceeds to pronounce a sentence filled with clicks (lingual-ingressive consonants). However, this is impossible, as clicks are only used in southern African languages and three east African languages. (00:03:10)

The Money - S8-E12

Continuity mistake: The exterior of the video store in the episode looks different from the interior. From the inside, we see a neon "open" sign on the window and other writing, and also no exit sign on the door, all of which is contrary to the outside view of the store. (00:09:25)
