    So over the years I seem to miss out on shows when there new. I can't seem to bring myself to suffer through crappy shows to get to good ones.

    24 I didn't watch until after it was done. I love it!
    Sopranos we didn't start until season three, and both loved it.
    We loved the 4400 and Jericho.
    We just watched all of Breaking Bad in the last few months.

    Now were feeling like we need a new show since we're done with Breaking Bad, what an awesome show.

    What really awesome show did I miss out on that we could start from season 1?

    Try Sons of Anarchy. It's on Netflix from S1.

    You WILL be disappointed in any other show after BB though.

    Yea, I feel like BB and Sopranos are the two best shows I've ever watched.

    I will throw a BIG-time second behind The Shield. It's one of my favorite shows of all time and, like Breaking Bad, seemed to just get better as it went on.

    Mad Men is good if you watch from the beginning.

    I watched a few eps of season 4, then decided to go back and start at the beginning.…lots of things make sense if you know the back stories.

    I also recently watched all of Boardwalk Empire. Great series...still going.

    +1 to Better Off Ted. One of the few comedies to make me laugh.

    Somebody mentioned Leverage so I'll recommend the British show Hustle
