Breaking Bad is one of the greatest TV shows of all time, celebrated for its intelligence, detail, raw drama and immediately iconic moments.

Like, for example, Walter White chucking a pizza on the roof and nailing the landing.

So, it should come as no surprise that the owners of the White house in real life are getting pretty pissed off with over-zealous fans trying to recreate the moment.

And considering it was just a fluke on Bryan Cranston's part, we reckon things have been getting quite messy.

It's not even a recent thing, with Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan urging fans to stop the pizza throwing back in 2015, but in order to combat the unwanted, albeit delicious, attention, the owners of the house have been forced to install extra security to stop fans from trespassing and generally ruining their lives.

KRQE News 13 are reporting that the residents are now planning on building a fence around their property to try to curb fans' enthusiasm.

Revealing the scale of the problem, one neighbour told the channel: "All day, non-stop, there's people up and down this road. They park in front of our driveway and block us in."

The owners of the home have reportedly already put up cameras, signs and cones on the road to keep people off their property, but now it seems they're not risking any more half measures.

While it's now common knowledge that Breaking Bad is a cult hit, it wasn't always obvious – not least to the actors involved.

Recalling the moment he realised the series had become popular, Bryan Cranston revealed earlier this year that it was all to do with traffic signs.

"I think it was when the traffic signs that had arrows of where we were supposed to park our cars when we were on location – they said Breaking Bad – it was when they started being stolen by fans as souvenirs," he explained.
