Notes:

This show followed a revolutionary concept for it's time. Each episode follows a simulated, real-time, one hour format. Every season consists of 24 episodes, so one full day. The concept is that agent Jack Bauer is a super spy who manages to unravel the mystery behind some form of terrorist attack and "save the world." This is one of the best action series of all time and served to rocket Kiefer Sutherland to one of the most recognizable actors in Hollywood.

Notes:

In 1920, prohibition in the United States began. The politicians and organized crime gangs of Atlantic City used this opportunity to make a lot of money, by continuing to provide alcohol to its patrons. This drama follows the lives of many of the real-life and fictional criminals alive during that time, starring Steve Buscemi in his first lead role, as "Nucky", the Treasurer of Atlantic City and the most powerful man in the city.

Breaking Bad

Notes:

Similar to Weeds, this series tells the story of an ordinary citizen's descent into crime. When a highschool chemistry teacher is diagnosed with cancer, he wishes to provide his family with financial security and therefore starts a meth lab in order to bring in extra money. Of course, nothing ever turns out quite the way you'd think.

Broadchurch

Premiered In: 2013 Status: Ongoing
2 Seasons, 60 Minute Episodes

Notes:

David Tennant leads this cast in a British crime drama that investigates murders in a small, coastal town. Each murder takes an entire season to solve, as the episodes attempt to simulate real-time investigations as closely as possible. As a Doctor Who fan, it's also interesting to see the large number of cast members and extras cross over between the two series.

Cane

Premiered In: 2007 Status: Ended

Notes:

Cane is the story of a family who uses sugar cane to make their world famous Rum. They're somewhat less than squeaky clean and of course, there is a rival family to keep them busy. This was a nighttime soap opera much like Dallas. Sadly, it didn't last long.

Deadliest Warrior

Premiered In: 2009 Status: Ended
3 Seasons, 60 Minute Episodes

Notes:

This pseudo-documentary series attempts to predict the best warriors in history, by pairing them up with enemies who would often not be their contemporaries. Using experts in the fields of various combat, historical, sports and medical fields, relevant data is generated and input into a computer simulation. At the end of each episode a choreographed, in character fight sequence demonstrates the outcome and a winner is chosen. It may be somewhat scientific and a lot of baloney, but it is a lot of fun, just the same.
