I've seen the new Star Trek film and the 2009 one. What's the next thing to watch if I like what I'm seeing?

I need recommendations for TV shows, audiodramas and audiobooks that I can really sink my teeth into. I'm asking for both in the same question because I need to be able to listen to the TV and still catch most everything; this is stuff I want to have on while I'm doing stuff with my hands. I'm a fan of fantasy, science fiction, drama and snark. More information and a list of favorite things after the jump. [more inside]

I've finished watching all my favourite things and am televisually lost while I wait for Breaking Bad and Boardwalk Empire to start again. Can you suggest English/American/Australian etc series (will also accept interesting BBC documentaries) that are actually watchable? [more inside]

I'm trying to remember an HBO series that was mentioned on AskMe recently. It lasted for only one season, and had to do with romantic relationships and marriages (I think) and was a character-study sort of show. Help?

*Spoiler Alert*Never Read This Thread (but none within the question itself): I am hoping to create a set of custom original miniature series "arcs", highlighting various things; characters/topics/ story-arcs/plot-arcs... any sort of "shortening of a longer series" that you love, or like or know.

I have directv and occasionally they give customers free access to pay channels to tempt us to sign up. I was watching one of the channels, which I think was called Universal, and there was a really funny show that I think was Canadian, about a middle aged guy on his second marriage with two kids from a previous marriage and two little kids, and a really hot 20 something sister. The scene for the show was this: An annual family reunion BBQ to celebrate the wedding anniversary the 60 something grandparents, and preparations for it. The plot, the old man gets drunk and announces that he wants a divorce because his wife is a nag. Very very funny stuff, sibling rivalry, at all levels, awkwark moments between ex and current spouses, some touching moments about the older children being the spawn of inferior breeding, very very funny. I want to stream it, but I don't even know the name of the network, let alone the name of the show. [more inside]

In the US, why do we call a short run of episodes on television a "season" whereas in the UK they refer to it as a "series"?
