So many people are surprised that I am a fan of Breaking Bad. I mean it is about an anti-hero Meth dealer! I think the love/hate relationship I have with the main character, Walt, is the basis for the guilty pleasure I enjoyed Sunday nights. Now that the series is coming to an end, I have been wondering what new anti-hero full of angst I will start to follow and not admit to it. Looking for a show that I have to watch after the kids go to bed. Here are the forerunners!
