Trivia Question

Can anybody explain to me why the series takes place in 2010?  *Continuity error: Todd Alquist's uncle refers to the 10 prison murders as being more difficult than the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. However, bin Laden was killed on May 2, 2011, and the episode presumably takes place in 2010. Vince Gilligan admitted this was a mistake.

true vince admitted that mistake. the series covers the last two years of walts life from 50 to 52. It started in 2008 so technically it will end in 2010, even though its been on the air for 5 plus years

no its not. walt turned 50 in 2008, 51 in 2009 which was season 5a and he turns 52 in the dennys diner which is 2010, season 5b

yes, but this episode is still when he was 51, and the series started in 2007, said Gilligan, when Walt was 50
