Great list! Some great shows there (“Firefly,” “Lost,” “Freaks & Geeks”); too bad I haven’t seen enough of some of them to comment.

Ones I would add:

“Homicide: Life on the Streets” (one of the most well-done shows I’ve ever seen, especially the first three seasons. It eventually slid into “hunk with gun” territory near the end of the series, but the realism and intricate characters of the first few seasons really make me think this was one of the best shows ever aired)

“Tour of Duty” (it didn’t always work, but the late ’80s Vietnam show really made you care for the soldiers, cry when some of the died, and so on)
