Re: Which US TV Series is as good as The Wire?

Does it have to be contemporary drama?
How about Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Spartacus?

Just to say, Spartacus is back with (A)Vengeance and is as bloody, violent and and sexy as ever.
and along these lines (while I agree whole-heartedly with these suggestions)

The Borgias
Dexter
The Tudors
Oz (from HBO)
True Blood
Stargate-SG1 and Stargate Atlantis -- both with a decent number of seasons and smart enough to keep focus

New shows I love that are in their first season:
Once Upon a Time
Grimm
Pan Am

...and I hear Homeland (also from Showtime) is supposed to be pretty good.

I recommend against:
Falling Skies (it just sucks)
Caprica (it was canceled before it began, thus you commit to it and then it's over... like Firefly)
Stargate Universe (was supposed to carry on the Stargate franchise, but it just blows, like what "Enterprise" did to Star Trek)
The Killing (American version just is a yawner)

P.S. I watched the pilot of "Touch" with Kiefer Sutherland and I'm hooked. Can't wait for more episodes.
