I recently got caught all the way up with "Breaking Bad". I'm toast until AMC resumes S5 in 2013. Until then, I'd like to start a new show.

I like emotional, deeply human shows.
Think "SVU".
Think "House".
Think "Breaking Bad".

With that in mind, what would you suggest?
Preferably something I can find on Netflix...

Thanks guys!

I know you asked on the SOA thread but definitely SOA and Justified.

Walking Dead, but you have to like zombie type stuff.

I also like Elementary on CBS (A Sherlock Holmes variation. Modern day, set in NYC) That's one of the better ones, I think. I would try that one if you haven't.

Also, the BBC, "Sherlock" TV show was/is great if you can find it. In general I watch quite a few of the BBC mysteries that appear on PBS Masterpiece Mysteries. They're basically detective shows. "Wallander" is one. Kenneth Branagh stars in that as a detective. I like that one. But, those aren't regular series. You have to wait for PBS to run Masterpiece Mysteries and then record them, and then see if it's one you like.

Mad Men. You must watch Mad Men now.

I made a similar thread to this awhile back, I'll see if I can find it.

Mad Men & Friday Night Lights are absolute musts.

It's not a drama per se, but if you like unexpected, deeply human comedy, Louie is phenomenal. One of the top 3-5 show son TV right now.

I'd just add to that that the last episode is satisfying and not some type of weird cutoff where the series didn't make sense because it didn't get a second season.

A second (or 5th or 6th) season would have been great and would have worked, but the series still stands strongly at one season.

Also, the BBC, "Sherlock" TV show was/is great if you can find it.

They just put the second season up on Netflix.

Very different, milieu-wise, but Game of Thrones has some seriously heavy character development and crazy twists and turns.

I truly appreciate all of these suggestions guys.

Anybody remember ESPN's "Playmakers"? I loved that show.
Sucks that the NFL put pressure on them to kill it.

Yes, but i never watched it. Ive noticed that ESPN doesnt seem to be making the "Original Programming" stuff anymore.

They had another series about gambling for awhile....there was a movie about Dale Earnhardt they did as well.

SOA is also very very good.

"Playmakers" was tits. It made the NFL all kinds of uncomfortable though.
Had far too much insight into the dark side of the league.

But it's not like they had any NFL likenesses in it. They could easily have passed it off as a representation of some other inferior league.
