The best TV show of the last 10-12 years that OTW58 hasn't seen...

Just finished up a long holiday break, and spent a lot of it watching all three seasons of Deadwood. For whatever reason, I had never gotten around to watching it, even though I had heard nothing but great things about it.

I thought this was the last truly great show I had missed out on, but then I realized the Planet could probably steer me in the right direction. Looking for something new to me, and phenomenal.

Here's a list of the great and above average shows I've already seen. Might give you an idea of the kind of things Mrs. OTW58 and I like. Prefer to stick to HBO, SHO, AMC, FX, etc. Not really bothering with network.

The Sopranos
Deadwood
Breaking Bad
Mad Men
Boardwalk Empire
Dexter
Homeland
House of Lies
Rescue Me
The Wire
Band of Brothers
The Pacific
Generation Kill
Sons of Anarchy
Archer
Entourage
Weeds
The Killing

I'm sure I forgot something. Any recommendations?

Looks like only option is $17.99 for the 1st season on Amazon Instant (HD) which means I have to hook up the PS3 again.

$20 for BluRay.

Only $2 more than streaming, it seems to get ridiculously good reviews.

I'll probably pull the trigger and hope we like it.

I would be really surprised if you didn't like it, judging by the list in your thread starter.

Season 1 was really good. And it gets even better in seasons 2 and 3.

Yea i like it. Its funny, offensive and pretty brilliant actually. Nothing too deep, but its well written.

wow.. no The Walking Dead? Great show, right in the vein of the shows you watch, but with zombies.

My favorite quote from season 1? "Hey, Dumbass. Yea, you in the tank."

I've always heard great things about The Wire. Just started watching it OnDemand, and I like it. Through about half of the third season now. Good stuff. I don't know if it lives up to the "best show ever" hyperbole I've read, though.
And it is a little dated, dealing with 10-year old technology.

The wire is a fantastic show. And I'm obviously a huge BSG fan. Watching it after the fact is great because you can watch it all at once and not have to wait a year for the next episode because the scifi channel is retarded.

I feel like the 1990s - 2000s were the golden age of television. All of my favorite shows are from this time (I guess it helps that this range takes up all of my formative years).

I don't think anyone has mentioned The Shield yet. That show is definitely in my top 5.

It's a show from the point of view of both a Baltimore Drug Syndicate and the Baltimore Police Department.

The best "police show" there is. I use the term "police show" loosely.
