Did You Know?

Trivia

According to Giancarlo Esposito, he based his performance as Gus Fring on Edward James Olmos's performance as Lt. Martin Castillo in Miami Vice (1984). He noticed that Olmos was very quiet and still but suggested an inner turmoil. Esposito guest starred on that series three times.

Goofs

Every depiction of the drug money bring counted or transferred in large quantities (ie in bags) shows absolutely pristine notes, whereas the occasional shots of money being exchanged for drugs show crumpled, folded notes.


Crazy Credits

Opening credits use chemical symbols from the periodic table of elements as part of names : bromine (Br), and barium (Ba) for the title, none for creator Vince Gilligan (except when he gets a V for Vanadium), one for cast and crew members.


Alternate Versions

All episodes were rerun on an on-demand cable channel in some areas, without commercials but with additional scenes not included on AMC.
