10 programas como Tulsa King que todo fan debería ver

Tulsa King es la última incorporación al increíblemente rico repertorio de la ilustre carrera de Sylvester Stallone. Sly interpretará a Dwight Manfredi, también conocido como El General, un capo de la mafia de Nueva York que pasó 25 años en prisión. Después de su liberación, es exiliado a Tulsa sin demasiado apoyo de su familia mafiosa y se ve obligado a construir un nuevo imperio criminal en una tierra que no es suya.

El programa se estrenará en Paramount+ el 13 de noviembre de 2022 y, según todos los indicios, será un increíble drama criminal que girará en torno a la mafia y todos sus secretos internos más oscuros. Si quieres algo similar a Tulsa King, te tengo. Aquí hay una lista de diez programas como Tulsa King que todo fanático del género criminal/mafioso debe ver. La siguiente es una lista ordenada alfabéticamente y sin clasificar.

Mejor llamar a Saul (2015-2022)

Clasificación IMDb: 8,9/10

Género: Crimen, Drama

Sinopsis: Better Call Saul es una precuela de la reconocida serie Breaking Bad. Sigue a un abogado corrupto que era conocido como Jimmy McGill mucho antes de que tomara el alias de Saul Goodman. Trabaja con los peores y más insignificantes delincuentes y es conocido por sus divertidos anuncios en televisión.

We follow Saul and the life that he led to get to where he was in Breaking Bad, meeting Jesse Pinkman and Walter White. The duo actually appeared in the final season of Better Call Saul, reminiscing of a scene from Breaking Bad.

Why it’s like Tulsa King: The story revolves around gangsters and the drug trade business in New Mexico, just like Tulsa King will follow the mafia in Tulsa. However, Better Call Saul gives us a look into another side of the business – from the perspective of a crooked lawyer who knows how to bend the law to enable the gangsters to continue doing what they do.

I thought that it would be impossible for Better Call Saul to come anywhere near the awesomeness of Breaking Bad, but after this final season, I have to admit that I was wrong. It’s just as epic, with just as awesome of an ending. I highly recommend it.

Breaking Bad (2008-2013)

10 programas como Tulsa King que todo fan debería ver

IMDb Rating: 9.5/10

Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller

Synopsis: Walter White is a brilliant chemist who, due to various circumstances in life, ends up working as a high school chemistry teacher in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He has an unborn daughter on the way with his wife, Skyler, along with a son, Walter Jr., who has had palsy since he was a toddler.

When Walt finds out he has terminal lung cancer, he teams up with his former student, Jesse Pinkman, and they start cooking the purest crystal meth the state has ever seen. Walt wants to save money to leave to his family after he dies, but as he dives deeper into the criminal business, it starts to grow on him…

Why it’s like Tulsa King: I don’t even have to say too much – Breaking Bad is one of the best TV shows in history, let alone in the crime genre. The psychological change that Walter White goes through is so gradual and so phenomenally portrayed by Bryan Cranston that one has to acknowledge him as one of the most brilliant actors of our generation.

If you ask Anthony Hopkins, the role that Cranston played was “the best acting I had ever seen – ever.”

El Chapo (2017-2018)

10 programas como Tulsa King que todo fan debería ver

IMDb Rating: 7.8/10

Genre: Biography, Crime Drama

Synopsis: El Chapo is a series following the life of Joaquin Guzman, aka El Chapo – a drug kingpin that rose to incredible power during the 80s and the 90s, all the way to his downfall in 2016. The story is inspired by true events.

Why it’s like Tulsa King: This is another story of a gangster going to extreme lengths, teaming up with unexpecting individuals, and leaving a bloody trail behind him s he rises to become the number one mobster. I read a lot about the real-life El Chapo, his connections with the Guadalajara Cartel, and the rise of his own, the Sinaloa Cartel.

The show does a nice job of showing the ruthless nature of running a criminal empire, but if we’re being honest, there are shows in the same genre that are much, much better. Like, for instance, the next show on this list…

Narcos (2015-2017)

10 programas como Tulsa King que todo fan debería ver

IMDb Rating: 8.8/10

Genre: Biography, Crime Drama

Synopsis: Narcos is the story of Pablo Escobar, one of the biggest, most notorious drug kingpins ever. Throughout the show, we get a chronicled view of the events leading up to Escobar’s rise, fall, and death, from both perspectives – the police’s and Escobar’s.

We see Pablo’s life in Colombia since his criminal beginnings, smuggling stolen goods. However, when he saw how much more lucrative the cocaine business was, he quickly made the transition and became so big he literally didn’t know how to spend all the money he was getting, so he started burying it around Colombia.

After his demise at the end of Season 2, Season 3 shows the aftermath and the battle for power over the business by other Cartels after Pablo’s essentially died with him, leaving a gaping hole full of cash for somebody to claim.

Why it’s like Tulsa King: Narcos is one of my favorite mafia-related shows, as each character did such a masterful job at portraying their characters. We also saw how dealing with such evil and ominous people impacted the lives and the psyche of the police officers involved.

You will, without question, gobble up all three seasons in a binge. Every episode is exciting, and you won’t believe that it’s actually based on a true story. One could argue that the third season was the weakest, but it’s far from being bad. Long live Pedro Pascal!

Narcos: Mexico (2018-2021)

10 programas como Tulsa King que todo fan debería ver

IMDb Rating: 8.4/10

Genre: Crime, Drama

Synopsis: Narcos: Mexico is a show following the Guadalajara Cartel, starting in the 1980s when Felix Gallardo (Diego Luna) took the helm of the Cartel. Before that, Mexican trafficking was still disorganized and divided, but after Gallardo, Guadalajara Cartel took claim of the business.

Meanwhile, a DEA agent moves to Guadalajara from California with his wife and kid but soon realizes that going after narcos in Mexico is way more than what he bargained for. This is the start of the drug war that is still lasting in the US.

Why it’s like Tulsa King: Again, just like Tulsa King, the show revolves around the mafia and the dark underbelly of the drug business. You might think it’s a sequel to Narcos, but Narcos: Mexico is a completely separate series. You might pick up on a few Easter eggs every now and then, but the series is a stand-alone, well worth your time.

Ozark (2017-2022)

10 programas como Tulsa King que todo fan debería ver

IMDb Rating: 8.5/10

Genre: Crime, Drama, thriller

Synopsis: In Ozark Marty Byrde is a financial advisor from Chicago who gets dragged into the crime business by his partner. He is forced to launder money for a drug cartel and move from Chicago to Missouri Ozark, where he does the laundering for his own financial gain, but primarily for the second-largest Mexican cartel in existence.

Why it’s like Tulsa King: In both shows, the lead character is forced to move states and begin their rise from scratch. Also, both are unaware of what they’re walking into, as neither knows who’s running the crime business in their new areas.

However, we see things from a different perspective – from one of the mobsters in Tulsa King and from the ‘money guy’ that makes sure everything seems clean on paper. They both have to enter unwanted collaborations with the worst people to keep their heads above the water and on their shoulders.

Peaky Blinders (2013-2022)

10 programas como Tulsa King que todo fan debería ver

IMDb Rating: 8.8/10

Genre: Crime, Drama

Synopsis: The story of a big gangster family owning the streets of Birmingham, England, in the early 1900s. We mainly follow Thomas Shelby and his brothers, who return home after serving in the British Army during World War I. Shelby becomes the leader of a gang called Peaky Blinders and sets his ambitions way beyond the Birmingham streets.

He creates a crime business empire, not holding back from ending anybody who dares to cross his path.

Why it’s like Tulsa King: Peaky Blinders are number one on many people’s lists when it comes to the best Netflix original shows. The theme is pretty much the same in both shows – mobsters building their own criminal empires. The only difference is, Peaky Blinders is set around the 1920s, so the methodology of operation for the criminals isn’t quite the same.

Succession (2018-)

10 programas como Tulsa King que todo fan debería ver

IMDb Rating: 8.8/10

Genre: Drama

Synopsis: The Roy family controls the biggest media and entertainment company in the world. It’s a large family with many people involved in the not-so-clean family business. However, when the father steps down as the head of the company, the battle for his place will turn the family upside down and divide it right through the middle.

Why it’s like Tulsa King: Succession is not quite like any show on this list, as it’s not that directly aimed towards the mafia, cartels, or similar ‘families.’ This one follows a different kind of family, but the things they do to achieve their goals are just as brutal. Also, it shows what a powerful resource it can be when you control the media.

It’s really an awesome show, and I just had to put it on the list. The 8.8/10 rating tells you all you need to know to give it a go.

The Sopranos (1999-2007)

10 programas como Tulsa King que todo fan debería ver

IMDb Rating: 9.2/10

Genre: Crime, Drama

Synopsis: Tony Soprano is a mafia boss from New Jersey, and the story of The Sopranos is largely presented from his point of view. However, we get another layer of the story with Tony frequently speaking to his psychotherapist, and we also follow his life outside of crime.

The show is intertwined with an innate, dark sense of humor but also with a whole lot of violence, aggression, and all the darkest sides of the mafia.

Por qué es como Tulsa King : Es casi una blasfemia comparar Los Soprano con cualquier otra película relacionada con la mafia, pero también es un error no incluirla en la lista de las mejores series del género criminal. Los Soprano es una serie única que debes ver, no sólo como amante del género, sino como amante del cine en general.

El alambre (2002-2008)

10 programas como Tulsa King que todo fan debería ver

Clasificación IMDb: 9,3/10

Género: Crimen, Drama, Suspense

Sinopsis: The Wire es, al igual que Los Soprano, un clásico absoluto del género. La historia sigue las calles de Baltimore y su mundo de pandillas, tráfico de drogas y fuerzas del orden que intentan combatirlo. Vemos la historia a través de múltiples perspectivas: gánsteres, policías, políticos, drogadictos, ciudadanos normales y los medios de comunicación. Todos ellos tienen un papel que desempeñar en la eterna guerra contra las drogas.

Por qué es como Tulsa King : Por último, pero no menos importante, The Wire es un clásico absoluto que hay que verlo para entenderlo. Para mí, es Breaking Bad, luego The Wire, y luego un montón de espacios vacíos antes de elegir el tercer mejor programa policial de todos los tiempos.

Ni siquiera entraré en detalles. Todo lo que voy a decir es que, al igual que Tulsa King, la parte más vulnerable criminal de los EE. UU. está bajo un microscopio, pero en The Wire, estamos hablando más de matones que de mafiosos con apariencia de caballeros. The Wire es absolutamente despiadado.
