With no Breaking Bad to look forward to in 2014 (although the Better Call Saul spinoff might count), people are looking for another show to give them the same adrenaline rush that only the tragic tale of Walter White could provide. Luckily, we have some recommendations for shows you can watch that can almost fill the Breaking Bad-sized hole in your heart.
1. The Shield
Morally-complex anti-hero protagonist with a shaved head who is a destructive force in the lives of everyone close to him
Good mix between nail-biting, tension-filled drama and comedy
SO MANY GREAT TWISTS
DRUGS DRUGS DRUGS
Just the closest thing out there to Breaking Bad.
Has a better ending. THAT’S RIGHT, THE ENDING IS BETTER.
Main character pretty much starts off in Evil-Walt mode instead of gradually moving there
Somehow gets darker than Breaking Bad ever got (and Breaking Bad had child-poisoning) - cats are strangled for no reason, there are brutal sexual assaults, and…the ending. Oh man, the ending.
