Mandarin/Cantonese equivalent to Sopranos/BreakingBad?

Postby Smeghead » Mon Dec 06, 2010 2:36 am

I really want to brush up on my Cantonese, and also learn Mandarin too, so I want to pick up some films and TV shows, but I haven't kept in touch with Chinese media in years.

I love shows like The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Dexter, but I really can't seem to find Chinese shows like this. Most Asian (Korean/Japanese/Chinese) shows that I know of are either set way in the past, or they're just too humorous and lovey-dovey. I much prefer darker drama series (as you may have picked up from my favourite American shows).

On the film side, I love films like Heat, but also I'm a HUGE fan of Stephen Chow's movies, and also I loved Chow Yun Fat's earlier movies like City on Fire and A Better Tomorrow.

So that's it. I'm looking for the Chinese (Cantonese or Mandarin, doesn't matter) equivalent of TV shows like Sopranos/Breaking Bad/Dexter, or Chinese films of a similar themes/levels of drama.

Thanks!
