    I love threads like this. Homeland and Justified added to the queue.

    Only lasted one season, and I was really sorry to see it go, but when you've burned through all of those others, you might give Terriers a shot. I really liked that one.

    Homeland is probably the best show on TV right now, especially if you liked 24. (And yes, I watch Breaking Bad, so I know of which I speak).

    Can't believe no one has mentioned Friday Night Lights. No, it's not just about football - it's about life in a small-town that happens to be dominated by football. The first season was among the best of any TV show ever, 3 out of the next 4 seasons were almost as good, and it stuck the landing as well as any show in recent memory. All 5 seasons are available on Netflix.

    Supernatural is also quite good, and perpetually under-rated.

    Game of Thrones was great (plus, it has boobs).

    Absolutely seconded here. FOX/FX totally screwed the pooch in their handling of this series. It was a real winner.

    Might want to do Deadwood first then. Raylan Givens is like a 21st century reincarnation of Seth Bullock, but with a sense of humor.

    Also FX re-airs all it's big shows in their entirety in the weeks leading up to a new season starting so you could catch up on Justified via linear TV if that's an option. Season 4 of Justifed starts January 2013, so the airings of S1-3 should be starting next month, give or take. They usually run 2-3 eps a week on Wednesday nights.

    If you're not already, and you become an Ian McShane fan from watching Deadwood then you might like the series Kings too. (single 13 ep season)

    Firefly looks like it's just starting up again on Free Hulu, I watch it at least once a year

    All episodes of Kings are on Hulu as well.

    I just started Deadwood, first episode was awesome

    Just finished the first season of Game of Thrones, amazing.

    The Shield was great

    Terriers was great

    Justified is great

    Looking forward to Homeland

    I really wanted to like Treme. I tried three times to make it through the first episode and I just couldn't do it. It was the most boring show I had ever seen. Absolutely nothing happened. JMHO

    Rome. I watched part of Spartacus on netflix back when I had streaming, but for some reason stopped.. (I think it was one of the very few times I was watching netflix streaming out of the house, killing time..)

    But your subtitle made me think of Rome, which I only watched in the past couple of years on DVD.

    Rome is great. Also Oz and Brotherhood.

    If OP is into war miniseries, both excellent Band of Brothers and The Pacific can be marathoned on a weekend.

    For comedies I'd go with Community and I'm burning through Cougartown now and like it too. Also watched Californication first 3 seasons and given it's a half hour, it was good for my morning commute. Boobs.

    This. I just bought the DVD set of the entire series, and am watching it again from the beginning. I'm only on episode 3 of Season 1, but I'm in love all over again.

    I burn through the full series run of Veronica Mars about once every year and a half or so.

    Also, one of the first things that came to my mind after seeing your list was Terriers, but that's already been mentioned.
