Breaking Bad is one of the greatest show ever made. The story about a simple Chemistry teacher turning into a drug lord really drew our attention. But the show ended way back and many fans are unable to find a show quite like it. Here are some show which although may not exceed Breaking Bad, they are nonetheless addictive.
1) The Wire (2002-2008) IMDb – 9.3
The Wire is a HBO show which might just be the second greatest show behind only, you know who. The Wire is a show about Detectives and Drug Lords. The detectives try their best to catch the drug lords but the drug lords are just as smart as the detectives. You kind of get to know the both sides here, just like any other people, the drug lords are also trying to protect their family.
2) Weed (2005-2012) IMDb – 7.9
Weed was the “Breaking Bad” before Breaking Bad as both shows have many similarities. This charming, yet dark suburban dramedy can be considered a more tame version of that show. It similarly revolves around a single mom (Mary-Louise Parker) selling marijuana to get some extra dough for her family.
3) The Sopranos (1999-2007) IMDb – 9.2
The Sopranos is basically the “Goodfellas” of TV series. It’s the most accurate movie about Mafias. Tony Soprano, is the head Italian-American Mafia of New Jersey. He struggles to manage his mafia business whilst trying to raise his kids and protect his family. Oh and yeah, he also sees a psychiatrist, cause he’s depressed. Just watch it cause it’s really good and you’ll understand why.
4) Better Call Saul (2015- ) IMDB – 8.7
Well of course Better Call Saul was gonna be on this list. I mean it’s a prequel to Breaking Bad so yeah. Better Call Saul is just like Breaking Bad. It’s slow but every scene has some sort of tension building in the background. Usually prequels don’t gain that much popularity but that doesn’t apply to BCS. It tells the story of Jimmy McGills, the famous lawyer also known as Saul Goodman in BB about how he changed from an actual criminal to a “criminal” lawyer.
5) Sons Of Anarchy (2008-2014) IMDb – 8.6
You’ll be hooked from watching the very first episode of SOA. It’s a really good show with brilliant writing and casting. SOA revolves around Jax Teller who struggles as he becomes a dad finding it hard to be part of the motorcycle gang. It’s easily one of the best TV shows.
6) Boardwalk Empire (2010-2014) IMDb – 8.5
A lot of HBO shows on this list including Boardwalk Empire. Boardwalk Empire is a period drama focusing on Enoch “Nucky” Thompson (based on the historical Enoch L. Johnson), a political figure who rises to prominence and controls Atlantic City, New Jersey, during the Prohibition period of the 1920s and 1930s. A mixture of lots of real life gangsters all coming together in one series.
7) True Detective (2014- ) IMDb – 9
True Detective is something totally different. It’s unique storytelling as well as the awesome cinematography enhances the amazing acting. Each season follows different stories and different characters so yeah don’t expect season two be just as good as the first one cause first one was really good. The series is about police officers and detectives finding rather strange and dark cases in the mean time getting to know about their true self as well.
