Factual errors 

In the opening credits letters in the names are highlighted in green so as to represent a chemical element symbol. However, Michael Slovis, the Director of Photography, for several of the beginning episodes, they highlight the Ch. There is no chemical element symbol Ch. After a number of episodes they caught it and thereafter they only highlighted the C.

In the opening credits, both "Br" (Bromine) and "Ba" (Barium) show 2-8-18-7, which is the Electron Shell Configuration of the element "Br". However, the element "Ba" should have shown an Electron Shell Configuration of 2-8-18-18-8-2.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

In the opening credits, the "Br" and "Ba" in "Breaking Bad" are presented as if they are entries from a periodic table of elements. The additional pieces of information included are atomic number, atomic mass, oxidation states, and electron shell configuration. Each of these is depicted accurately for both Br (bromine) and Ba (barium), except the electron shell configuration for Ba is copied verbatim from Br. The periodic table that the entry for Ba is visually extracted from contains the correct information. The creators were most likely aware of this, but thought the opening had enough merit to warrant this disregard for correctness under artistic license.

Plot holes 

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.
