20 Mind-Blowing Facts You Never Knew About Breaking Bad

19. N34 59 20 W106 36 52 Are Coordinates For ABQ Studios


They may not be as iconic as Lost's mysterious digits (which led to many fans actually playing with 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42), but Breaking Bad's lottery ticket numbers still have a pretty cool element to them. A way for Walt to remember exactly where he buried his fortune (nostalgically where he first made meth), keen viewers wanted to see where they really led to, discovering something rather simple.

The coordinates aren't actually for a location in the New Mexico desert, but ABQ Studios, where much of the show was filmed. It's a cool little easter egg with the added value of stopping super-fans from getting lost in the middle of nowhere. Despite not being real-world accurate, these do still manage to be (almost) the coordinates of where Walt and Jesse did their first cook; all the exterior desert scenes were actually shot in the studio's backlot.
