I know there's a 'last night on telly I watched' thread, but this is a touch more specialised, so please bear with me on my debut thread!

I've been watching a lot of the big TV shows over the last year or so since finishing The Sopranos and Prison break, and I've watched 24, Lost, The Wire and am currently watching 'Oz' as a friend of mine who recommended The Wire said it had a few actors from The Wire and The Sopranos in it, and it hasn't disappointed! I'm halfway through Oz now and it's really been good!

Can anyone recommend any other TV shows of similar length, that really take you on a journey?

Breaking Bad - currently the best show on TV, about a chemistry teacher who gets diagnosed with terminal cancer, so starts cooking meth.

The Shield - Great US cop show, watch the first episode and if you don't like it, don't bother, but you should like it. I'm currently watching it all the way through for a 3rd time.

Rescue Me - About a firefighter in NYC, has had its ups and downs, but overall a quality show. Final series starts in 8 days.

I've been looking for inspiration for a boxset since finishing Sopranos recently. I didn't think anything would top The Wire but The Sopranos maybe just pipped it.

Had all of the Lost series as well but as everyone knows, that went out with a whimper so I sold my collection.

I enjoy being able to watch the next episode whenever I feel like it so I tend to wait for shows to finish before sourcing the DVD boxset. I couldn't wait a whole week between episodes, or months between seasons.

From reading the above, Breaking Bad sounds good. It's always been the intention to watch the likes of Oz, 24, Prison Break as well. And it's even better knowing that Hollywood just keeps churning out more great TV, like Boardwalk Empire and Treme as they will be sourced some day too.

Battlestar Galactica

Boardwalk Empire

Treme

Mad Men

The Walking Dead

Six Feet Under

Deadwood

Dexter

The West Wing

Game of Thrones

Entourage

Californication

As far as HBO's miniseries go, Band of Brothers, The Pacific and John Adams are pretty peerless.

Sons of Anarchy is a class programme, def worth a watch.

I'm currently persevering with Chicago Code as it was made by the same guy as the Shield. Bit of a slow start, but its gradually improving

I wouldn't bother to be honest. It doesn't get much better and was rightly cancelled after 13 episodes.

I know you probably can't get any of these, but anything by Chris Lilly starting with " We Can Be Heroes" and finishing with "Angry Boys"

Funny as hell, totally, yes "Totally" unPC.

It is not suitable for Americans, full stop. Sorry guys, you just don't have that kind of sense of humour, as has been proven by some remarks on twitter.

How has nobody mentioned Rome.

By far the most fantastic programme I have ever watched. I've never been one for repeatedly watching DVDs but I have watched Rome over and over again.

Absolutely obsessed. Blood, gore, sex, brilliant acting and story lines aplenty.

Band of Brothers is quality, one of my favourite shows.

I have been looking to buy the walking dead, is it a decent series?

South Park seems to do ok...

It's excellent however there's only six episodes in season one. Best to wait for it to drop in price or download it.

The Walking Dead was very good, but I love anything to do with zombies.

Been watching Game of Thrones which I find very very good but I always blanch at the amount of sex in it. I am not a prude but there is just no need for all of that to move the story.

Rome was fantastic too.

+1 - tremendous stuff (so far - just into series 3).

And, although it's only 7 or 8 episodes long, Generation Kill is outstanding.

I have watched it twice love it.

I called the ending while watching season 4 see if you can figure it out.
