The worldwide success of the AMC series Breaking Bad focused much attention on the long form television series as a method of twenty-first century storytelling that captured the zeitgeist but also extended the range of the telling and the tale.
Following Beck’s* (2001) analysis of the desert as trope and terrain we will employ a content analysis of the series to examine when and how the desert is used to develop the narrative, confirm or disrupt seriality, and focus on its use for symbolic and intertextual layering.
