One show I got into just before I got here was Better off Ted. It's a very underrated comedy series, and kind of has an Arrested Development tone to it. It centers around the personalities who work for an evil American defense contractor a la Raytheon, or General Dynamics. If you like Adult Swim type stuff you should check out Venture Bros. and Frisky Dingo, those are my personal favorites. For drama I strongly second the suggestion of Breaking Bad and The Wire. Prepare to waste some serious time if you start watching those shows.
