"Sons of Anarchy"
After hearing good things about it (in Alan Sepinwall's blog, for example), I decided to check SOA out. What attracted me the most was the often-repeated suggestions that it is the heir to The Shield--created, after all, by Shield writer/EP Kurt Sutter.
Everything they said is true. Yet another powerfully engaging series, with the sort of complex, not-easily-identified-with characters only a long-term television narrative can offer. Ron Perlman and Katey Sagal are, in particular, compelling in the Tony and Carmela roles.
