Braking for Breaking Bad

Alright, call us geeks, call us losers, but we LOVE the AMC Series “Breaking Bad”.

For those who have not had the pleasure, Breaking Bad follows the life of Walter White, a mild mannered high school science teacher (played by Brian Cranston) who decides, after a terminal cancer diagnosis, the only way to make enough money to leave his family secure is to cook methamphetamine in a run down trailer. The show is entering it’s fifth and final season, and we highly recommend it!

The series has been called by critics as the greatest drama series in history, and been nominated for sixteen and won six Emmys (including Three Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series awards for Cranston). You should check it out on Netflix for sure.

Anyway, the series is filmed in Albuquerque, NM, and we took an afternoon drive to enjoy the wonderful mountain air and check out a few of the series key locations. Photos below.

Walt's house - man these people must HATE tourists.

Walt's car wash - known locally as the OCTOPUS Wash.

Los Pollos Locos is a key element of the storyline. It's actually one of an operating set of restaurants called "Twisters."

Saul Goodman's Office - DUI? Dealin' Drugs? Better Call Saul!

The Dog House only made a few appearances, but it's a cool place.
