    Past favourites include The Sopranos, The Wire, The Shield, Breaking Bad, Twin Peaks, the Killing (Danish version), Spiral

    I know about HBO's lineup, but apart from that, it's not so easy to find new stuff if you're in Germany and don't use torrent sites. :)

    As you can guess from my list above, I am generally more into series with overarching storylines rather than episodic ones, but it's no dogma.

    Deadwood, Game of Thrones, Homeland, Justified, Mad Men, The West Wing, maybe Boardwalk Empire (not a fan myself).

    Deadwood is brilliant, very painful in parts though.
    Also distinctly lacks an ending.

    Another recommendation for Justified. My girlfriend and I have only just started watching it properly, we watched the first two episodes of the first series and were distinctly unimpressed but due to everyone saying it's awesome we have begun watching more and episode three and four were very good indeed.

    Plus we both heart the Olyphant.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    Weeds.

    Dark and painfully funny in parts.

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.

    I really liked Hell on Wheels.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Justified gets going when it decides what it wants to be and just turns up the Dixie Mafia stuff to 11, great show.

    Sons of Anarchy is great, even the comedy Irish bits.

    Another vote for Deadwood, you cocksucker! too :)

    Damages & Homeland

    Both are excellent and the former is very underrated. Damages gripped me from the opening of the first episode. This isn't your typical "legal drama", more of a thriller with an amazing use of timeshifting and some amazing cliffhangers. And there's four amazing seasons of Damages to work though too :)

    Its really hard to beat The Wire ! But I'll second the recommendation for Battlestar Galactica - its fracking great but a bit hammy and there were the odd crap episodes after maybe the first two seasons (but if you like the first season you will put up with that).

    Now if you were asking for comedy: you can't go wrong with Curb Your Enthusiasm and Seinfeld. And if you get (admittedley ancient) British humour then Dads Army and the ITV production of Jeeves & Wooster.

    Lost is pretty entertaining, but the fans seem to have a love/hate relationship with it.

    Mad Men is also great, but it's slow... if you've got the patience, it definitely pays off.

    Fringe goes from OK episodic type in the first season, to much more engrossing and over-arching in the second season (where I currently am) and is helped by the wonderful acting of John Noble.

    Kooky Sci-Fi-Horror, so not really what you listed, but myself and the wife are currently enjoying it.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.
