What TV show should I watch next?

I'm looking for an AMAZING show to watch next. Something short-form, well written, emotional, the kind of thing I will tell everybody around me to watch. I don't care what genre it is in.

There is so much good stuff to watch right now, but much of it is so long ... (just started watching MI-5, for instance, as well as the new Under the Dome adaptation. Hundreds of hours of storytelling. And we are of course awaiting the final few hours of Breaking Bad.). I find myself craving a story that is fairly concise, has a defined beginning/middle/end, and is a self-contained whole. "Top of the Lake" is the best example in recent memory. The BBC miniseries "Jekyll" also comes to mind.
I don't care if it's hour-long drama or comedy or anime (I have been told that I would love "Steins Gate," so that's on the list) or audiobook or whatever. I just want amazing stories that begin, tell their story, and then come to a satisfying conclusion. What would you recommend?
