So we’re here in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where we’ve been visiting the Breaking Bad shooting locations where the TV series was filmed. Judging by the way people’s eyes here light up when we mention the show (starting with the car rental guy at the airport), Breaking Bad has clearly become an institution in ABQ.
But it’s also made a huge impact overseas, as evidenced from our interviews with the guys from ABQ Trolley, who organise a tour of the various shooting locations, and The Candy Lady, who supplied the original prop candy for the show. They’ve entertained visitors from as far afield as Germany, Italy, Australia and Japan and now, Singapore.
As cliched as it sound, the show really does come alive when you see the actual Breaking Bad shooting locations in the flesh. Keep checking in on this post, as we update it with more photos of the locations from our two day trip here. And talk about serendipity – Krysten Ritter, who played Jesse’s girlfriend Jane, is currently in town shooting a movie. We’ll see if we can track her down…
