Audio problem: Throughout the series the engine sound from Walt's Pontiac Aztek sounds like a 4-cylinder engine, but the Aztek was only ever available with a V6.

Abiquiu - S3-E11

Audio problem: When Jesse and Andrea have the argument, she says the line, "if that's what you wanna do then go." However for the the last bit, her lips don't move. (00:30:25)

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)


Over - S2-E10

Audio problem: The message from Walt that Skyler listens to at the office is different from the audio earlier in the episode. Walt says "no" when we see him, but on the recording he doesn't say it.

To'hajiilee - S5-E13

Audio problem: After Hank and Gomez separate Jessie and Walt after he's arrested, Hank tells Gomez that "I'll call the Tribal Police on my way out, let them know we're here." During the middle of this line, the shot cuts to Walt and you can distinctly hear the sound of a microphone picking up the actor breathing on it as he recorded this line in ADR.

Dead Freight - S5-E5

Audio problem: The engine's horn sound constantly changes before the train is robbed. And when the train begins to move again, a railroad crossing bell is heard, even though the crossing ahead just has crossbucks.


Seven Thirty-Seven - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: At the end of the episode when Tuco shows up at Walter's house in the backseat of Jesse's car, he tells Walter to get in. As they drive off, the shot pans out to show the street sign across from Walter's house. The sign says Piermont, which is the real name of the street. In the show, the Whites live on Negra Arroyo Lane. (00:48:00)

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!

Caballo sin Nombre - S3-E2

Trivia: There is a scene in this episode where Walter angrily tosses a box of pizza in the air in such a way that the pizza exits the box and lands on his roof. Before filming this scene, the crew had wondered how many takes would be required to achieve the desired result. Bryan Cranston nailed it on the first try.

Chosen answer: There are several possibilities. Gus primarily does it to make an example out of Victor. Victor is one of Gus' most loyal henchman, and yet he had no problem killing him. Meaning it doesn't matter how loyal or valuable Walt is, he can still be killed and it won't bother Gus. However, Walt tells Jesse that perhaps Victor "flew too close to the sun." Meaning, Victor over stepped his bounds by learning how to cook meth. Gus didn't appreciate Victor's initiative and Gus only wants his employees to do the job they're given. Again, telling Walt and Jesse to do their job or else.


I think it was a combination of anger over Gayle's death and Victor being seen by witnesses makes Victor very vulnerable and therefore a dangerous liability to Fringe's empire.

By this point, the mugshot of Victor will have been spread around as a suspect in Gail's death. Victor had been come too hot to handle, so to say, so had to go.
