So, I just finished watching Breaking Bad,
What gripping, character-based drama series do I watch now until the next season of Game of Thrones starts? →
I absolutely LOVED
Breaking Bad. Every character was perfect (my favourite being Saul Goodman - and I'd never heard of Bob Odenkirk before BB) and I particularly liked the way the intro would have a teaser of something that's not going to happen for weeks
and I'd be thinking "how the hell
is the story going to go there
?". But it did, in ways I could never predict.
I liked the moral ambiguity of the characters, where nobody was totally bad or totally good (except the kids) and I would in turns feel so sorry for Walter and then be appalled at his behaviour. Gustavo Fring has to be one of the most chilling villains since Anton Chigurh in No Country For Old Men.
Anyway, I'm looking for something else I can watch now (doesn't need to be on NetFlix or anything, as I can stream from the net) which will similarly grip me.
I'm already watching Friday Night Lights, which is shown here on Sky Atlantic every Tuesday.
