The Upsetting Reason Why The Owners of The ‘Breaking Bad’ House Built a Fence on Their Property
It’s almost been six years since the last episode of the hit AMC series Breaking Bad aired but it seems like fans just can’t let go of their favorite show yet.
The show made instant stars of its two leads Bryan Cranston, who played the chemistry teacher turned dealer Walter White, and Aaron Paul, who portrayed Jesse Pinkman, Walter’s former student turned accomplice.
Unfortunately, the show’s success didn’t bring the same positive effects to the real-life owners of one of the show’s shooting locations.
One Pizza Too Many
According to reports from Time, the owners of the 1,910 square foot Albuquerque house have been reliving one popular scene from the popular crime drama over and over again for years now. Apparently, fans who make the pilgrimage to their house, which was used as Walter’s home in the show, have a knack for recreating the scene where the character throws a pizza on his roof.
In fact, things got so bad that Breaking Bad showrunner Vince Gilligan made a public appeal for fans to stop doing this in 2015. And now, house owner Joanne Quintana is taking a drastic step to finally end these annoying pizza antics. Quintana is reportedly planning to erect a six-foot tall fence made of wrought-iron to keep vandals out of their property. The decision was not an easy one to make, the homeowner said in an interview, they also said they feel like they’re the ones who are being ‘locked up’.
Peace From Fans
As Quintana shared, her home has been ‘bombarded’ by hundreds of Breaking Bad fans, who come in droves during weekends to take photographs and even steal rocks from their front yard for souvenirs. Some of them, as Quintana revealed, have the audacity to tell the homeowners to close their garage and get out of the picture’s frame. Hopefully, this kind of behavior from fans will soon stop once the fence is completed.
Unfortunately, Quintana’s home isn’t the only one which caught the attention of enthusiastic fans. Weckiai Rannila, the current renter of Jesse Pinkman’s former apartment, has also revealed that he has to constantly fend off fans who go to his place to take selfies on weekends.
The Show’s Legacy
While fans’ invasive actions can’t be excused, it isn’t hard to see why they remain passionate for the show years after it ended. The show has been praised over and over for its excellent writing and story arcs.
Critics often cite the show’s decision to focus its story on one character as its edge over other series at the time. During its run, Breaking Bad was nominated for numerous awards from the most respected award-giving bodies with, Cranston, who portrayed Walter, winning four Emmy Awards for Best Actor.
