Watch: Supercut Celebrates The Gorgeous Wide Shots Of ‘Breaking Bad’

Watch: Supercut Celebrates The Gorgeous Wide Shots Of 'Breaking Bad'

It’s been over two years since “Felina,” the final episode of “Breaking Bad” aired, and yet the iconography of that New Mexico-set show still looms as large as ever in the imagination of fans. One of these fans, editor Jorge Luengo, has cut together a video of one of the visual hallmarks of the series: the wide shot.

It may be because of the vast desert of the southwestern United States, it may be because of the ever-present blazing sun, or it may even be because of Heisenberg’s pork pie hat, but the Vince Gilligan-created show always had the air of a western. Luengo’s supercut of wide shots brings the show’s old west leanings into sharp focus, every shot making a case for “Breaking Bad” being the best-looking western of the past twenty years even if it is a show set in the new millennium.
