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?

The Wire is the greatest artistic endeavor ever undertaken by mankind.

And I'm probably way behind the times here, but I just watched all 7 seasons of The Shield over the Fall/Winter. Loved it.

The best "police show" there is. I use the term "police show" loosely.
That's too simplistic, I think. The Wire is a show about the American city -- a place where, the show argues, an individual human life is made every day by various institutions to be worth less and less.

Compared to the show, any description, yours included, is too simplistic.

Just watch it Pest. It's not referred to in every "Best Show Ever" conversation for no reason.

This thread comes at the perfect time. On Sunday, Honey Boo Boo's Holiday specials began airing. Tune in on Sunday nights, TLC 8pm for fine television.
