Sunk Costs - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: Mike sets a trap to taint a cartel's truck with drug residue. First, he inserts a bag of cocaine in a shoe, then throws the pair of shoes over a telephone wire. His plan is to shoot the hanging shoe so the cocaine powder pours out onto the truck as it passes under the wire. However, when he inserts the drugs it is in the right shoe, but later, it is the left shoe he shoots and has the powder in it. (00:29:30 - 00:38:00)

Off Brand - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: The newspaper Hector is reading when Domingo comes in keeps changing around. For example, when you see him reading the sports page, there's half a picture of a baseball player on the front and the bottom half should be seen on the side Hector is reading. When we see what he's reading, part of the picture is now a football player.

More trivia for Better Call Saul

Answer: It is my opinion that you should absolutely watch Breaking Bad first. If you did not know, Better Call Saul takes place before the events of Breaking Bad. At the time I am posting this, BCS is mid-way through season 5, with season 6 on the way perhaps in a year. So if you binge Better Call Saul now, you would not be able to "flow" right into Breaking Bad. To me, it's better to watch in the order that they came out. Breaking Bad was a phenomenal show, and now watching Better Call Saul, it is fun to watch the events unfold and start to lead up to what we saw in BB. Enjoy.

Chosen answer: So far the show has been about Saul's struggles as a lawyer long before the Breaking Bad timeline (Spoiler Alert: It starts out for the most part at a time when he didn't even go by the name Saul).
