What should I watch between Seasons 7 and 8?

Obviously, I will be rewatching Thrones at some point, like I always do. But I've heard that Season 8 might be delayed until 2019. If that's the case, I'm going to need other TV shows to get into. A few people have recommended Breaking Bad, so I might give that a go. Does anyone have any favorite shows that they would recommend to a GoT fan?

I will admit, I am rather picky when it comes to TV. Game of Thrones and Westworld are two of my favorites, so anything similar to those would probably strike my favor. Please help, I need something to watch!

I'd recommend:

The Last Kingdom - very GoT but without magic
Marco Polo - more about Kublai than Marco. Grand vistas, politics, battles
The Expanse - GoT in space - politics, battles, "magical" mystery
Vikings - actually I've only seen one episode so far, but so far, so good.
Fortitude - Beric Dondarrion - well, Richard Dormer - again freezing his ass of in the far North. Mysterious deaths in the snow.

Can't say I've heard of many of those, but I will look into them all! Thanks!

If you haven't seen Breaking Bad definitely do yourself a favor and watch that.
(Its spin-off series, Better Call Saul is also phenomenal television.)

It's an older HBO series but have you seen Deadwood? If you enjoy slow burning character based drama then I'm sure you'll like it.

I personally couldn't get into Black Sails, Vikings, The Expanse, or The Last Kingdom... just didn't have the quality of writing and acting that I've come to expect.

Lastly, Stranger Things and Black Mirror if you haven't already seen those.

Deadwood- I've came across it a few times but never really thought too much about it. I'll give it a go when I renew my HBO subscription for "Westworld."

Black Mirror- I've also had recommended to me, and I've heard it's popular among "Westworld" fans as well. I'll have to see.

Thanks for the suggestions!
