Owners of 'Breaking Bad' house build fence to prevent trespassers

Owners of 'Breaking Bad' house build fence to prevent trespassers

Fans certainly haven't forgotten and the house in New Mexico used as the White's family home in the series, is now regularly targeted with pizzas by fans of the show.

The series had a somewhat unlikely arc of popularity: It was generally low-rated in its early seasons, but became one of the first series to gain a huge following through Netflix streaming of the older episodes.

A 6-foot wrought iron fence is being built around the famous northeast Albuquerque home.

The pizza-tossing had gotten so bad that the show's creator, Vince Gilligan, urged fans to knock it off more than two years ago. KOB's news crew themselves counted around 10 tourists hanging around the home.

And you thought the Rick and Morty fandom were bad.

A hurricane brewing over the Atlantic threatens to bring strong winds on Monday - and a mini-heatwave. A higher degree of winds are expected, as well as unseasonably warm weather.

And even more annoying than the sometimes hundreds of weekly visitors, the real-life owners of Breaking Bad house said, is how many times a tourists has thought it would be amusing to toss a pizza on the roof and echo the infamous Walter White scene.

It's hard to disagree with the decision. Real life owners of TV homes often have better experiences - the woman who owns the Laura Palmer house from Twin Peaks even got to make a cameo in the final scene of Twin Peaks: The Return.

Incidentally, Weckiai Rannila, the renter of a University of New Mexico apartment that was the on-screen home of Breaking Bad Emmy victor Aaron Paul's Jessie Pinkman, tells the station she also has her share of sometimes "annoying" selfie-seeking fans.

Breaking Bad's entire run remains available to stream on Netflix.
