I know you already watch Breaking Bad. The Sopranos should be priority one. After The Sopranos, I would watch all seven seasons of The Shield, and after that the first five seasons of Sons Of Anarchy (Season 6 starts in September). All of that should keep you busy.

Depends on what you mean by "gritty". Does Southland count?

I wouldn't class Shameless as gritty. It's not always the serious of shows.

It doesn't need to be serious all the time, it's still gritty.
