    For those of us without premium channels (I only have Starz with my basic), I heartily nominate The Americans, a spy drama about Soviet sleeper agents living a middle class life with their children and neighbors not knowing what they do.  It sounds like a premise for a silly sitcom, but it's not, being gritty and suspenseful.  The schism between their home life and their spy life is one aspect, and the degrading and dangerous things they are called upon to do, as the Cold War heats up in the early eighties under Reagan.  We also get to follow what is happening at the FBI office which should be looking for them, but has its head up its ass because of ambitious careerism and sloppy personal lives, which the two sleeper agents exploit.  They pass each other in the night at times, like subs running silent.

    Also: two best comedies on TV: THE WORKAHOLICS and IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA.

    One great youtube except from It's Always Sunny, where Dennis explains The Dennis System for acquiring undying love from women.
