I don't know if anyone has seen Life on NBC here in the states, but I highly recommend it. It's about a cop who was framed for murder, went to prison for 12 years, was exonerated, and went back to the LAPD as a detective. The writing is excellent, the long-term plot actually advances, major bad guys come and go (surprisingly at times), the acting is great--especially Damien Lewis.
Anyway, check it out if you can--I believe the entire second season is at NBC.com--it's one of the few TV shows I watch.
