I just watched the entire series of Breaking Bad in a little over a week. From the first episode I was hooked. The only other time I was immediately hooked on a series was The Sopranos.
But now I want to watch something else just as good. Some friends have recommended Drop Dead Diva and Sons of Anarchy. I tried both of those on Netflix and although I'll continue to watch them they're not as good as Breaking Bad, IMO.
Can anyone recommend something? I'm planning on trying Mad Men and House of Cards. Anything else?
I record several shows weekly but I'm looking for something really special with excellent writing and superb acting such as BB and Sopranos.

"Boss" is/was quite good.

You should watch Justified. Not on Netflix, but is on Amazon Prime Streaming.

Quite simply, no!

BB is one of the best shows ever and trying to find something as good will more than likely be fruitless.


Having watched the finale on a laptop screen in a hotel room in England, we watched it 'properly' last night. Second time around, it was just as good, if not better, than the first time. We saw some nuances that were missed first time, like when Walt got hit when he was protecting Jesse.

It's actually pretty subtle and mostly sound effects when Walt is hit.

Don't know whether you have easy access to them, but I'd recommend:

Game of Thrones
The Shield
Justified
Deadwood
Firefly
Terrriers
Battlestar Galactica (new)
Stargate Universe

Hard to compete with Breaking Bad for consistent excellence throughout the series, but these had their moments.

I would add LIFE to that list.

If the official AMC Breaking Bad Tumblr is still active, you should have your friend upload it.

Edit: looks like it is. For a time, they were sharing the photos onto the AMC FB page.

I don't know if you're into sci-fi, but Farscape is a phenomenal show. I'd also highly recommend the first couple seasons of Veronica Mars.

Haven't read thru the entire thread, apologize if this has already been addressed.

Walt wasn't a hero at the end, he was the same he had been throughout, an anti-hero. Big difference. The finale was the perfect completion to both the story arc and the character arc, because Walt was the story - who he was originally, who he became and why and how it affected everyone around him, and how, in the end, he somewhat came back to himself, or at least tried as best he knew how.

After being diagnosed with cancer, as wrong-headed as his solution may have been, Walt started out with a noble intention - to protect his family after he was gone. Unfortunately he chose to do so by the most despicable means - manufacturing one of the most horribly destructive drugs out there. That he would choose to do something so abhorrent with seemingly little moral or ethical regard for the destruction he would cause to the users of his product demonstrates a serious lack of empathy, the hallmark of a pyschopath. Walt very quickly lost his grasp on that original intent because of ego and greed, and his selfish megalomania completely took over his life. He became a monster. And by doing so he destroyed countless lives, including his own and those of everyone he loved.

Walt admitted his selfishness to Skyler in the end, finally, because he had been forced to face what he'd done and what he'd become after he'd been brought to the depths - Hank's murder, Jesse's "betrayal", his failure to provide for his family, his wife and son's physically and emotionally violent rejection, being a fugitive - it all brought it home. Alone in that cabin in the frigid wilderness, with only his beloved and useless barrel of cash to keep him company, dying, he was the epitome of failure.

Walt's final acts were not heroic, actually they weren't even unselfish. I think he pretty much admits that at one point. Throughout the entire series a common theme - a catalyst for much of what happens, in fact - is that Walter White, who has been a milquetoast his entire life, has to prove himself smarter and better than everyone else - the oh-so-righteous cops, the big bully bad guys, his own family; it's almost like a game and he has to - has to - WIN. At any cost. So, yes, while his actions produce some really desirable results in the end, and, yes, while part of him is truly motivated by his love for his family, he is ultimately driven by his same old selfishness and ego. The only difference is this time everything he does is justified from a moral, if not legal, pov. This is made clear when Saul explains to him how everything would work out for his family if he simply turned himself in. Walt considers this but rejects it, even though this is before he knows that his family has been threatened. Instead he concocts a plan to get over on everybody. And he does.

In the end, at death, Walt is smiling not just because he's back in his cherished lab, as some have suggested, but because he is back in his lab because HE WON.
