I am finished watching The Wire. What next?

Here's my shortlist of options:

Six Feet Under
The West Wing
Oz
Deadwood
Battlestar Galactica
The Sopranos (Though I've given this several tries and I never got into it)
Veronica Mars

I'm only 4 eps into Deadwood if you want to follow along.

Hmm. There's also a Six Feet Under marathon. Deadwood is shorter, so there's an advantage there.

I think Deadwood is a lot more interesting that Six Feet Under, although both are worth checking out.

But I've heard that Deadwood doesn't have a satisfying ending while SFUs end is supposed to be great.

I thought the SFU finale was kinda unintentionally funny (but that might mean I'm an asshole). But yeah, HBO jerked around Deadwood and things didn't conclude properly.

I can live with no satisfying ending. I'm a lover of My So-Called Life and Firefly. And, no, Serenity is still not a satisfying ending, considering I want at least four more seasons of awesome.

The back half of Deadwood's entire 2nd season is a let down.  I loved Season 1, but through Season 2 my love diminished till I regretted sticking with it.

I would also choose SFU over Deadwood.

The West Wing is the best of your choices, but I understand the commitment required, and I'm too busy to join you in a West Wing marathon right now.
