Breaking Bad is one of the most phenomenal and ground-breaking TV series of all times. It’s rightfully acquired cult status among its millions of fans across the globe.

How to get away with Murder:
This ABC show has consistently lived up to its expectations of delivering an intense drama peppered with insane twists. Every time you feel that the show is dragging its feet, there is a brutal murder in the house and a blood splattered body is lying on the mat. But the real beauty is that almost all the major characters have mastered the art of covering their tracks and they are never prosecuted for the crimes they have committed.
