Awesome, awesome list.
Love the fresh thread!!
I'm on board with almost all of these except:
24 - I really never got this one... tried. Some actors always strike me as acting. Keifer Sutherland is one. I'm not saying it is a bad show, just that I couldn't get past Keifer Sutherland's acting. (personal opinion)
Heroes - I absolutely loved Season 1 of this series. I would give it full marks up until probably the last episode. I remember the one guy would forecast the future and everything fell into place... except the finale of Season 1. That episode had several flaws in the forecast. It was already as if the writers lost track of their week-to-week build-up. Season 2 was the biggest drop-off in a single series I've ever witnessed. My wife & I both went from love-to-hate in a matter of one half season. We forced ourselves through Season 2 (like bad vegetables) and then forced ourselves through the start of Season 3 before just looking at each other one night and saying "this is garbage".
Revolution - The wife & I watched the first 4 episodes of this show. Maybe we gave up to early... but we thought it was poor. I give it a thumbs down.
The rest of the list is solid, I've seen at least a few episodes of all of these except for The Wire, 4400, and Spartacus.
