Presenting: The Greatest Moment in Television History
I can definitely recommend Breaking Bad – it’s one of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time, and it portrays the change from a generic loser into a fucking badass beautifully.
Also, it seems that one of the most underrated shows that barely anyone speaks about is Sons of Anarchy, which I also heartily recommend if you like awesome plots, good acting and manly characters.
If you like historical drama mixed with lots of graphic violence and sex go watch Spartacus (the first series/season, Blood and Sand is a lot better than the last two, but all seasons are very good overall. It’s probably the only TV show that I’ve ever seen that shows the female hypergamy as a fact of nature).
