^ LOL. I'm honoured, sjem.
If you need something that's kinda long-running, try Battlestar Galactica. I hated the ending, but the rest is gold.
I'd definitely second watching Californication. It's like Entourage in a way, but better and more focused on one character. There's only like 3 12-episode seasons as well, so that's considerably shorter than BSG.
Erm, what else... Sons of Anarchy. There are others, but they're harder to get into, and I only really like them cos I've been watching them for a longer time (stuff like Lost, Supernatural).
OH, Parks & Recreation/The Office. The Office will take forever, though, like BSG. And of course, Arrested Development. I don't wanna oversell it, but Arrested Development is to sitcoms what The Wire is to drama.
Which brings me to my last recommendation. WHY IS THE WIRE NOT ON THAT LIST?
