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

I just started watching Arrested Development (I think for my 7th entire watch-through) and it's still entertaining and making me smile, even picking up new jokes.

They might be a bit dated (pop culture/news references), but I'm getting ready for the new Season this spring. First new episodes since 2006!

Then cleanse your palette with Eastbound and Down. It's a comedy series, no doubt, but with lots of subtle detail and poignant moments hidden behind the main character's narcissism and beautiful mullet. Awesome soundtrack too. I've watched all 3 seasons twice (and I have zero free time, that comes out of my sleep ).
Yes! I love that show, it's hilarious.

Entourage (8 Seasons) is good, some Hollywood back stories.
Brothers and Sisters.
The Americans (New) is good, something I have not seen before.
Red Widow (New).

It has been said already but I second Game of Thrones. For a TV show, it rivals some of the big fantasy movies and is better than I ever expected it to be.
