    I was so totally mesmerized through all three seasons of Breaking Bad. I hate the thought of waiting an entire year until Season 4 comes out. So in the meantime, I was curious to see what other Breaking Bad fans watch and enjoy.


    I haven't seen any shows I would describe as being similar to Breaking Bad; to me, it's definitely in a league of its own. But the single show I can think of that I'd recommend to other Breaking Bad fans would be Oz.


    Other shows I've enjoyed (but are not similar to BB) include Buffy, House, and Bones.


    Anyone else?

    Breaking Bad is easily one of the greatest pieces of entertainment that I have ever seen in my life.... But Lost is #1.

    I'd have to agree, the only show that I've seen that is on the same level of quality as "Breaking Bad" is "The Wire." There are plenty of good shows out there, such as Lost, but there are only a few that I've watched that I would consider "great." Breaking Bad and The Wire are definitely at the top. Dexter and Deadwood are pretty close to great. The rest of the shows that are good, of which there are many, will entertain you for the night. But few have you thinking about them the rest of the week like the great ones do.

    Thanks for the replies! I've heard so many good things about The Wire, I've been interested in checking it out. Currently I'm watching old episodes of The Shield, which I'd never seen before.

    I like breaking bad too and my reasons are :


    -great writing and directing = good quality show


    -great talented actors and they're attractive too .


    -I like the dark and the mystery in the show .


    -Although I hate too much violence and sex but I gotta admit that i like it in someway , its what separate adult/mature shows from the teen shows .


    -I like that fact that the show is unique and like the creativity of it .


    -great story and polt twists


    -amazing characters .


    so based on above , the shows that I like and I think they're the best are :


    #1 Lost


    #2 Breaking Bad


    #3 True Blood "warning it has adult content lol"



    I watched other shows and I like it but they're not the best :


    - Heroes , good characters but some episodes/seasons were bullcrap , but overall nice show .


    -Generation kill , it was ok .



    I watched like the last 4 episodes of The Vampire Diaries it was ok but I couldn't stand watching the first episode so I stopped , cuz it was hellla boring watching teenage **** .



    So Don't miss watching Lost and True Blood , I think they're really really good

    The Wire

    The Wire is another show similar to Breaking Bad in the way that it thrives on very heavy material and has long steady progressions to huge payoffs. Two of the best tv shows ever made.

    Weeds is about the same scenario, but a little lighter in viewing, its easier to follow, but also a amateur drugdealing family.

    Breaking Bad is a brilliant show, definitely one of myfavorites. If you want a similar sort of show I would probably go with The Wire and Weeds.

    While Weeds may be similar in content it has nowhere near the same sublime power that Breaking Bad has. A list of shows I'd recommend that focus on the characters more than the action are:

    Damages
    The Sopranos
    Mad Men
    The Wire
    House M.D.
    Being Human (U.K.)

    Shows that focus more on action than characters:

    24
    Burn Notice
    Human Target

    Shows that achieve a good balance of action and character:
    Battlestar Gallactica
    Buffy the Vampire Slayer
    Heroes (Season 1)
    Prison Break
    Lost

    Guilty Pleasures:

    Nip/Tuck
    True Blood

    PRISON BREAK was and will always remain the best show in the universe for me.

    Breaking Bad is the ONLY ONE that is giving me my fix need for amazing show, now that Prison Break is over.

    However I would recommend these shows to Breaking Bad fans, and I guarantee you, you won't be disappointed:

    Prison Break

    Dexter

    24

    Fringe

    Battlestar Galactica

    Supernatural.



    If you choose any of these, you won't regret it.
