Breaking Bad (2008)

Though Breaking Bad found its home 270 miles north of the border in Albuquerque, the tragedy of Walter White gave faces to the system of the drug trade. Each business shake-up or low-level gang hit in the ABQ generated a chaotic and unforeseeable ripple on the supply chain — watch that trigger finger, Jesse! Working with such violent disciples of the Holy Dollar, there's no bad deed that goes unpunished.
