I know everybody asks this (and I've read through the previous questions looking for recommendations), but what should I watch next? Preferably on Netflix or Hulu Plus (not web only). In general, I tend to like: mysteries/crime procedurals/law dramas, especially with a quirky twist, and also shows involving a quirky band of misfits (or individual) working outside the law to bring justice to the little people while finding out who done them wrong (e.g. the A-Team, Burn Notice, The Pretender, etc.) I also like heist shows and sci-fi. And occasionally anime.

Despite the fact that I love mysteries/crime shows, I have a pretty intense phobia of serial killers, so anything with a large focus on tracking them (e.g. Dexter) is not an option.
Stuff I've loved:
Firefly and Dollhouse (sometimes Buffy & co)
Dead Like Me
How I Met Your Mother and Big Bang Theory
Monty Python's Flying Circus
The Muppet Show
Stuff I've seen and enjoyed
Law and Order (all of them except CI and the more serial killery episodes of SVU)
Murder She Wrote
Star Trek (All of 'em)
House (the first couple seasons)
I'm sure plenty of others I'm not thinking of.
