    Television shows for cool people (like me)

    So I've recently been introduced to television and I'm trying to catch up on all the cool shows I missed out on.

    My favorite show is Psych, so anything with that tone is appreciated.

    I like detective shows but not ones that focus a lot on forensics and stuff. Also anything funny. Even better if its on netflix streaming.

    Stuff I've watched:
    Dexter
    Psych
    Parks and Recreation
    30 Rock
    My Name is Earl

    Watching:
    Better off Ted
    Twin Peaks

    Suggestions plz

    Dexter and Big Bang are amazing.

    Personally, my favorite shows are Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Doctor Who, but I'm a pretty lame (READ:cool) person. I almost never watch things on TV, I just wait for the DVDs/netflix or watch it on hulu (or by other online means).

    I'm also really into True Blood, Castle, and The Mentalist.

    Was lurking and saw this thread. Made an account just to tell you to watch Arrested Development.

    For the love of God just watch it....

    Oh and then if you haven't watched Flight of the Conchords I'd also suggest that too.

    Stuff I'm following:
    Big Bang Theory
    House
    Castle
    Better with You (love the title track, I started watching it because someone made me listen to that)

    Stuff I watched a few episodes of, and would like to follow:
    30 Rock
    Bones
    Modern Family

    Stuff I haven't watched yet, but in queue:
    Dexter
    Mentalist

    I like comedies and psychological and murder mystery thrillers with more science. I used to like House, now I watch it because I'm used to it, and I like the characters. Have heard so much about Dexter, I really want to start it, but my exams are round the corner. And I love BBT. It's a must watch if you have a science background, or are a geek, or you probably won't get a lot of jokes. I used to watch How I Met Your Mother, but it got boring after 3 seasons.

    Jubeh, I'll check Psych out. Title sounds interesting.

    Luther, Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased), and Life on Mars/Ashes to Ashes are pretty good detective shows. Poirot is worth watching because of the moustache.

    But I recommend BBC's Sherlock. It's a modern day retelling of Shelock Holmes. And it has Sherlock Holmes in it and it's pretty good. Watch it.

    EDIT: Being pushy. Trailer.

    Dr. Pumpkin@ I was going to add the serie Sherlock.

    I have a problem with Big Bang Theory. The serie is not bad, but is not amazing, in part because I hate the "can laughs" and the jokes are not so good (are like smart, but not hilarious), while Community is a ride of good jokes (in the good episodes).
