ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The Emmy-award winning series "Breaking Bad" is set to air its last show Sunday and the city where it was filmed is preparing for the end. Albuquerque will celebrate the AMC series finale with watch parties and red carpet casting events in a city still benefiting from a tourism boost due to the drama's popularity. Tourism officials say despite the show's dark themes of drug trafficking and violence, "Breaking Bad" highlighted areas around the city and gave viewers a sense of Albuquerque. Albuquerque businesses also have taken advantage by selling "Breaking Bad" theme products like "blue meth" candy and character-related clothing. "Breaking Bad," follows former high school teacher Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston, producing and selling methamphetamine with a former student, Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul.
