Breaking Bad

ABQ - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: When Hank picks up the six pack, he picks it up by the handle in the middle and the bottom. Camera cuts and now he is holding it by the side and bottom. (00:15:50)

One Minute - S3-E7

Factual error: As demonstrated in the earlier scene where Leonel shot the truck driver/arms dealer, bulletproof vests do not make the wearer immune to bullets. Bulletproof vests are only designed to stop penetrating injury- they do not counteract the high energy of an impacting round, which can easily break ribs and cause internal injury. When Hank empties Leonel's dropped gun into Marco, Marco is barely staggered despite the fact that he just took five rapidly fired bullets in quick succession to his upper chest. That many hits at such close range in such a small zone would have, at minimum, shattered several of Marco's ribs and potentially punctured one or both of his lungs - both critical and incapacitating injuries on their own. As a result, Marco should have been unable to lift his gun to shoot Hank twice in the chest, much less swing an axe. Additionally, at least one bullet appears to strike Marco's clavicle and upper shoulder- both areas that are not protected by the vest. (00:44:00 - 00:45:00)

Buried - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: When we see Lydia take her blindfold off, the windscreen has a layer of dust over it just outside the wipers reach. Camera cuts to a different angle and the windscreen is spotless. (00:33:50)

Caballo sin Nombre - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: While Walt is out of his car and arguing with the police officer, there are other cars visible in the far distance behind him. The cars appear and disappear in between shots, there isn't time for them to pass and we don't hear them pass. (00:03:30)

Abiquiu - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode Jesse and Jane leave the art gallery and go to his car. From the outside, Jesse's car is right up close to the Porsche in front, but the inside shots show they are about 4-5 feet back from it.

Cat's in the Bag... - S1-E2

Character mistake: When Walt steals the bottles of "hydrofluoric acid," they are misspelled on the labels as "hydroflouric." This misspelling is corrected when hydrofluoric acid reappears in season 4. (00:11:20)

Show generally

Other mistake: The configuration of the front side of the house does not match the configuration from the inside. The outside view looking at the house from the street indicates (1) there are no rooms to the right of the garage (when inside there are rooms on the side of the garage). Also when looking at house from street side, to the left of the front door the house comes forward. When inside, (at least in episode 13, season 3) the inside of the house does not extend forward towards the street.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: If you research "The Breaking Bad House" you will see that the house used was filmed both inside and out, so this error couldn't have happened.

The garage is shown to have an interior door. Walt comes through it when he is showing baby Holly the money hidden behind the insulation. However, the is no corresponding door inside the house. The interior house scenes, at least most of them, must be a set.

ABQ - S2-E13

Character mistake: Skyler places the baby's seat in the table, but forgets to buckle it up. It paces up the scene, but no mother in her right mind would forget this, plus the seat would fly away right after the engine starts.

Fly - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: When the episode is about to end, Walter's head on the pillow points in a 12 o'clock direction. A shot later it's at 11 o'clock.

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.

Down - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Walt is making pancakes and there's 1 pancake left in the pan. Skyler walks in and now there's 2. (00:04:35)

4 Days Out - S2-E9

Visible crew/equipment: Walt and Jesse get stranded out in the desert. We see Walt cough up some blood and Jesse stand behind him. In this shot you can see the reflection of someone move in Walt's glasses, despite them being alone and still. (00:32:30)

Seven Thirty-Seven - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: At the end of season 1, we see the meth get weighed and Tuco tell No Doze to give Walter some more money. However in this episode the scene is different. We see Tuco give Walter the money which already includes the extra money. (00:02:15)

Cat's in the Bag... - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Just as the camera shows Jessie lighting his crack pipe, there is a TV playing and the screen shows a man with a razor to his hairline. Camera does an instant cut and now said razor is by his cheek. (00:37:20)

Cat's in the Bag... - S1-E2

I See You - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: When Walt is talking about his operation, in the hospital Cafeteria after Hank is shot. He says the line "Lying there waiting for them to anesthetize you." From one angle, he is shown looking forward, while from the next angle, he is turned around facing Marie. (00:20:50)

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!
