New Mexico: Breaking Bad

New Mexico is the setting for some seriously great TV. There were plenty of contenders to represent this corner of the Wild West, including Netflix’s own original mini-series Godless, which is set in the fictional town of La Belle, New Mexico.

If you’re not up for a Western though, the best show to watch to represent New Mexico is definitely Breaking Bad. This dark and gritty drama from AMC is prestige TV at its finest. The series centers on Walter White, a high school chemist who enters the drug manufacturing trade after learning that he’s been diagnosed with aggressive cancer. Breaking Bad is bloody and serious, a hardcore drama that will suck you in from its very first episode. The show remains one of the most highly regarded series of all time.

The New Mexico that Breaking Bad puts on display isn’t very pretty. The show takes us into the underbelly of the drug trade, so we frequently see The Land of Enchantment’s less than favorable characters. You won’t exactly want to book a trip to New Mexico after binge-watching this show, but it will definitely pique your interest.

Bonus: if you get all the way through Breaking Bad, you can follow-up your viewing party by starting another New Mexico-set favorite. Better Call Saul is a Breaking Bad spin-off that focuses more on the legal system in the state.
