AMC TV with shows such as Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead has been surely dominating the industry in the last few years. Breaking Bad is considered one of the best TV shows ever created, and one of the best crime thrillers in the history of TV.
Well, I’m not surprised by all these facts. Below you’ll get to know my personal reasons why you should watch this show:
1. Character development
Walter White (the main protagonist) changes a lot during this show. The show starts with a slightly depressed and socially inept high-school chemistry teacher, and in the last seasons we see a guy who isn’t afraid to steal, extort money, launder money, and kill people. How’s that for character development? People change, and this show portrays it very well. That’s one of the reasons why Breaking Bad is so fascinating – there aren’t many shows where the bad guy is the main character.
2. Great actors
Well, we don’t have to write a lot here. Bryan Cranston (Walter White) has received three consecutive wins for Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, and Aaron Paul has received two wins for Best Supporting Actor. All critics praise this show for the leading actors, and supporting actors don’t disappoint as well.
3. Dark story
Who doesn’t like a good dark story? Breaking Bad is one of the darkest TV shows that you can currently watch on TV. It asks very interesting questions. What would you do in order to secure your family’s financial situation after you die? What does it mean to be a bad person? Are you a bad person if your motives are good? Many questions, many answers. Watch the show to see how a a regular professor can turn into a violent drug lord (by the way, in the same way as a good person may become a bad person, a lonely person may become more sociable).
Where to watch the show? If you want to watch it, the best idea is to watch it online. Here’s a good article with a list of four places where you can watch the show: Watch Breaking Bad Online.
If you like TV series with crime, drugs, tough moral choices, etc. Breaking Bad will soon be one of your favorite TV shows.
I watch only a handful of shows. My favorite ones are definitely Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead. Why is that so? Well, that’s why I wrote today’s article.
First and foremost, both of these shows feature extremely talented actors (especially Game of Thrones). It’s such as pleasure to watch such a genius actor such as Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister (in Game of Thrones) or Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon (in The Walking Dead).
Secondly, both of these shows are based on great writings – “The Walking Dead” comic book series in the case of The Walking Dead and “A Saga of Ice and Fire” in the case of Game of Thrones. I LOVE both of these works, and they’re the #1 reason why both of these shows are so good.
Thirdly, in both of these shows everything is unpredictable. This means that even main characters are killed and after a couple of shows, there may be more new characters than the old ones. Some people may argue that because of this you can’t get used to characters (they can die at any point). Well, I don’t agree with that. For me, it only makes me like these characters more (I hope that Daryl from The Walking Dead will never die!).
Last but most definitely not least, both of these shows have high budget. Thanks to this, zombies look as real as they could be (The Walking Dead), costumes are beautiful (Game of Thrones), there are many actors (especially in Game of Thrones) and interesting special effects and scenes of fighting (I especially like them in Game of Thrones, but some of the scenes from The Walking Dead, especially in the season 3, were also incredible).
To sum up, I love these shows for everything (lol). To be serious, I’m simply a fan of fantasy worlds and post-apocalyptic themes, so it’s no wonder that I love both of these shows. If there were any new good fantasy shows, I’d probably enjoy them as well.
If you want to watch the shows, I suggest reading this article for The Walking Dead and this article: Watch Game of Thrones Season 2 for Game of Thrones. I strongly urge you to check out both of these shows – these are unquestionably one of the best TV series ever, especially Game of Thrones which is hands off superb.
This is a new blog about the best TV shows and other TV productions. Some of the topics that I’m going to cover on this blog are popular TV shows such as Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, various interesting reality shows (mostly survival shows), The Walking Dead etc.
I will also write from time to time about slightly different topics, including some of my other passions (don’t panic, I won’t write about them on a daily basis, only if you’re interested in them), so I might write about things such as how to get a girl to like you, share with you some tips how to become healthier, and write about many other topics such as topics from this article etc.
