LOL We did Trailer Park Boys right after My Name is Earl. We tend to get a theme going so we might need a period piece after GOT.

I really liked the Spartacus series too.

I would suggest sticking with Deadwood if the first episode doesn't grab you.

The third season is a great slow burn of tension that some may find frustrating since the show is based on historical characters.

Try "Longmire." A contemporary "western" that decently depics the plight of Native Americans in the modern West and the "battles" that they continue to endure. --Though done through the episodes of a tough, white sheriff.

Want the grittiness of "Deadwood?" Then jump to "Hell on Wheels." Some gimmicks of the series, are a direct ripoff from "Deadwood." It is somewhat historical in concept.

Both are great. Deadwood has some very rough language, but it's still worth watching. Being from Hazard, Ky , which is near Harlan where most of the story takes place, I have a soft spot for Justified, but that aside, it's still a damn good show.

Sons of Anarchy

Fargo

Ray Donovan

And of course Breaking Bad

All pretty much unmissable.

Deadwood is the superior show in pretty much every regard. The tone, characterization and tendency towards Shakespearean monologue makes it transcend genre, the love and attention to detail make it feel like a world that you can visit for a time, but would definitely not want to live in.
But as others have said, it's not for everybody. It is filthy, occasionally obscene, wanton with displays of random cruelty, brutality and hardship and the language is harsh on the ears (in fact it was a choice by the writers to have such intense scatalogical language to reflect the historical tendency towards sacrilegious speak, which would basically have little impact on a modern audience).
The final season does end on a cliffhanger that has been decried by many fans; personally, I grew to love it because the uncertainty of the ending and the promise of catastrophe seems like it fits with the feel of the show in general. Good things happen, bad things happen, but history moves on.

I do love Justified too, but it is at heart a police procedural. The setting is interesting (I assume, mainly for people who didn't grow up in rural Kentucky) and it has tons of heart. Essentially if you want to watch Tim Olyphant and Walton Goggins be baddasses for a few dozen hours and watch the finer details of Southern rural crime escapades, this is the show to watch.

ive been flipping back and forth. on episode 2 of deadwood now. just finished episode 3 of justified.
i think i like justified better thus far. something about olyphants portrayal is resonating well for me.
deadwood seems promising though.

i had high hopes for penny dreadful but i came to a point where it just wasnt working for me.
after dorian grey popped up and the whole frankenstein thing happening i lost interest.

Did you ever try American Horror Story? There are 4 seasons on Netflix and the first 3 are all top notch

The Wire is possibly the most well written television series ever.

I would personally take Breaking Bad over The Wire..
From star to finish BB maintained such a high level

The Wire definitely was great. Go back a little further, and Oz was probably my favorite HBO series, with Deadwood being 2nd.

Loved The Wire up until the moment Marlo Stanfield took over after the Barksdale crew went away, Marlo snoop and Chris just didnt have the same gravitas.

Banshee isn't half bad if you haven't seen it.

Salem is another one.

The originals. Vampire flick and you won't find any glitter on 'em.

There is nothing out there like Justified.

Now if I could only find me something to watch.

I am fresh out.

Oh yeah.

In to the Badlands from AMC.

One of my fav shows in the last 20 years. I'm halfway through season 2 of Ray Donovan. It's good. Think McSopranos with a little touch of Breaking Bad.
