What are some of your favourite drama television shows that focus on character development rather than settings and storylines reated to to the emergency room, court room, etc..?

I'm kind of picky when it comes to watching dramas although I like watching Parenthood which falls into the "comedy-drama" genres of television shows (at least according to Wikipedia). I like it because it focuses on character development and relationships and not on other aspects like the ER or court room.
I have a difficult time getting into drama television shows, primarily because of how long the episodes are and how short my attention span is.
I think Breaking Bad, Dexter, The Wire, etc.. all sound like great dramas, but I just have a difficult time sitting through shows and films that are not sitcoms/comedies. But, I'd love to be able watch these types of shows because they are what I would consider "sophisticated" types of dramas with great storylines or so I have been told.
With that being said, what are some of your favourite drama television shows that focus on character development rather than the emergency room, court room, etc..? I'm looking for shows that are easy to get into rather than shows that take a couple of episodes to get into...
