Best TV shows ever?

Looking for recommendations on the next TV series I should start as I just finished The Wire (Great Show!). Here's where I'm at...
The Wire - Finished
Sons of Anarchy - Caught up
Lost - Finished
Mad Men - In the middle of it
True Blood - Caught up
House - Caught up
Spartacus - Caught up
Breaking Bad - Caught up
Battlestar Galactica - Finished
Band of Brothers - Finished

Is Deadwood, Nip Tuck, Dexter, or 24 worth starting?

First 2 or 3 seasons of Nip/Tuck were good, but then they started looking for sharks to jump, and they jumped them often.....

Not on your list but:
Battlestar Galactica (the SciFi one, not the '80's trash) was an incredible series.
Rubicon (AMC, if you like spy thriller type. Just started so you are only 9 episodes behind.)

West Wing.


I think that every American could benefit from watching this show. It did a great job of showing you the day-to-day of the inner workings of government without being political.

Great cast/solid acting (at least up until the last season or two) and really really great writing.

The Closer isn't bad at all either, lighter crime drama.
