2. The Witcher

The show is certainly fun and the outstanding performances of the characters leave you wanting more.

3. Breaking Bad

I bet we’ve all worried about our family suffering if we leave the picture suddenly and so we often brainstorm ideas to secure the future of our parents, spouse, and children. Some may get life insurance, others may invest in various projects, and who don’t know much about anything else just put some money aside in the bank every month.

Breaking bad is a brilliant marathon-viewing TV show and it will not be wrong to say that it will go down as the most influential TV drama ever because it’s based on this relatable topic about how one person went on to deal with it so unconventionally.

The initial plot is quite simple, when a moralistic chemistry teacher finds out he has cancer, he turns to crystal meth-making and dealing, to make sure he leaves his family with the best possible life and a lot of money. The method to his madness makes him pretty good at it in a very short time. As the story moves on and obstacles arise, Walter White undergoes something far more dangerous and terrifying.
