They try to extend the shows life as long as possible so they can demand higher payments from the cable companies and get contracts renewed .

Basically all premium cable shows are 10-16 episodes a season. I don't remember ever seeing a show on HBO, Showtime, etc with 24 episodes. These shows cost 2-3x the money to produce.

Not Prison Break. Not that the other two are my cup of tea either, but everyone blows their load over Game of Thrones so maybe check that one out first.

Just watch the first 2 seasons of Prison Break and Spartacus. GoT can wait because there are 3 more seasons after this one.

I'm looking to start a new series.

Game of Thrones
Boardwalk Empire

Which should I try first? Or are there any other suggestions besides these two?

Boardwalk is tremendous. Especially if you're a fan of that general era/history.

GoT, don't even need to talk about.

Prison Break season 1 was absolutely tremendous IMO. After that it was pretty crap but that first season was definitely exciting.
