Quoted from jgentry:
Better Call Saul
I didn't watch Breaking Bad until I got into this show. I went back and caught up, and think Better Call Saul is better.
Quoted from rai:
Liked the first True Dective but only watched one episode of the second because it seemed lame.
That lame selfaware ending of Season 2 Episode 1 where they stare at each other is just awful. I will say I watched it all and and didn't hate it. It has some qualities.
If you like all of David Lynch, you can't go wrong with Twin Peaks and the Showtime reboot for its pure existential surrealist insanity. If you don't like David Lynch, probably not fun. I love it. If you like Lost this is that a notch or two removed from reality.
If you like Season 1 of True Detective, check out Mindhunter on Netflix
If you like Sci-Fi Westworld, the netflix knockoff is decent too Altered Carbon.
The absolute best modern TV show IMO, HBO's Deadwood. Warning though, its a master class in swearing. Some of the best, inland swearing ever put to page or screen. Ways you couldn't even imagine using those words. Pure mastery. Plus every character has a deep arc. Great writing, sets, direction, and acting.
