To make one thing clear right at the beginning – Breaking Bad is the best television show that has graced the screens till date. The character developments are perfect, the narrative is gripping and the plot is watertight, believe me I’ve checked. I’m going to assume that if you’ve seen it you’ve loved it, I would definitely encourage watching reruns. But if you are in the mood to move, this list is for you. Here’s the list of TV Shows similar to Breaking Bad that are our recommendations. You can stream some of these shows like Breaking Bad on Netflix or Amazon Prime or Hulu.
15. Peaky Blinders
Putting this show at the bottom of the list despite being a personal favorite, simply because it is rather unlike Breaking Bad. Here the entire family leads a life of crime and quite openly. They try to legitimize it but the crimes put strains on personal relations and we see them coming apart in the subsequent seasons. Nonetheless Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy and in the latest season Adrian Brody, they all come together to form a rather impressive cast and the show set after World War I is based on a real Birmingham street gang. The music choice is brilliant, the sets and costumes are well designed, the plot and narrative is gripping and the acting is extraordinary. If viewers want to get a taste of what it might have been like if the entire family followed Walter’s life of crime willingly, Peaky Blinders will probably show you the way.

14. House of Cards
Well this might not be everyone’s favorite show at the moment in light of Kevin Spacey’s horrendous actions, yet we can all take a moment to appreciate the brilliance that this show was in some of its seasons. A gripping high stakes game of compromise and power play where both Frank and Claire Underwood have to balance a marriage and personal commitments with their seemingly insatiable hunger for power. If the stakes in Breaking Bad were high, here it is higher. If the betrayals and dangers were bad in Walter’s side of town, it’s worse in the Capitol and the White House. Politics is the most dangerous and ruthless business to be in – perhaps even more dangerous than making meth. House of Cards proves that.
