So instead, Joanne Quintana, whose mother owns the house, installed a six-foot, wrought-iron fence around the property, she told KOB 4. The Quintanas, after all, have to live there, and while it may be neat to have your home be a part of TV history, not everyone always thinks of the day-to-day practicalities and hassles. The AMC series, created by Vince Gilligan, told the story of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a sad-sack high school teacher who, after a cancer diagnosis, becomes an unlikely crystal meth kingpin.The series collected Emmy Awards, while also turning Cranston into a movie star for the first time in his 50s.

On a weekly basis, Quintana said she loses count of how many people come to the house. "We don't want to gate ourselves in", she said. In 15 minutes, a KOB news crew counted almost 10 tourists.

The daughter of the house's owner told KOB, "We feel like we can't leave because when we do, something happens and that's ridiculous".

They can get nasty. "We did nothing wrong". She says some visitors even steal rocks from the landscaping as souvenirs.

In its five-season run that ended in 2013, Breaking Bad grew from obscure oddity to one of the most celebrated, acclaimed television series of the Peak TV era.
