3. ‘Breaking Bad’

AMC’s breakout hit Breaking Bad had viewers enthralled with the story of Walter White (Bryan Cranston) – a chemistry teacher-turned-drug lord who was battling lung cancer. There are a bunch of timeline inconsistencies with the show, but fanatics have concluded the series took place between the years of 2008 – 2010. This short window of time meant writers were only able to use certain pop culture and historical references in order to maintain the integrity of the PR, and they still managed to make one huge mistake in the episode “Gliding Over All” in season 5.


The episode, which was supposed to take place in 2010, had one character reference the death of al-Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden. The only issue was, bin Laden was killed by American forces in May 2011.

Another hilarious mistake happened when Walt breaks into the home belonging to Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) to steal his stash, and a crew member can be spotted in plain view hiding behind one of the doors.
