    I've been meaning to start watching a new show and now I'm stuck; and I can't choose one of them.


    - If you've seen both; tell me which one is better


    - If you've only seen one of the shows; tell me why it's worth it /not worth it watching that show


    - If you haven't seen any of them; Give me some tips; any other show that's fairly new and enjoyable



    The shows i'm stuck between are Justified and Boardwalk Empire.


    Some of my favorite drama shows are; Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, Homeland, Dexter, Mad Men. So you have a clear view of the shows i'm interested in.



    Thankful for any help!

    That's a really tough call as they are both really good shows. I watch most of the shows you mention and am big fans of both Justified and Boardwalk Empire. If I had to make a choice I would choose Justified, because it already has had 2 great seasons (the current season isn't great) while Boardwalk has only had the 1 great season (their second year was rather dull). I am also a big Western fan and Justified has many similarities to another favorite show of mine: Deadwood.
    Both are great shows though, watch it all.

    Justified - I like the idea of a old school Marshal (shoot first ask later)
    Sons of Anarchy - It has everything that a TV shows needs.

    I plan to watch both of these too, I've recorded the first seasons of both, but at the moment it just seems too much effort to to watch either. Boardwalk is more critically acclaimed if that helps. I trued to watch Sons of Anarchy, but seven episodes in I only liked Gemma, does it get better?
