The genius of “Breaking Bad” is that the show lures viewers into the mental space where it seems totally OK to be rooting (most of the time) for a character that makes his living off of meth. And this genius recreation of Walt’s tricked-out meth lab makes cooking dangerous drugs seem almost like good clean fun.
Meth labs not made out of Legos do, however, have a tendency to contain hazardous chemicals that pose a real health threat. Also, occasionally, they blow up. If you’re worried about a home in your neighborhood, police suggest checking for unusual amounts of trash or the tell-tale smell of strong chemicals.
If your neighbors merely show signs of using an unusual amount of Legos to create a “Breaking Bad” replica, though, don’t worry. They just have good taste in TV.
