Can anyone please help me with some similar TV series as below. Many thanks in advance!?

Hi all, can I pick your brains please? Need to know similar TV series that I enjoy. It would be great if you could put them under the different categories... if you don't mind. Truly appreciate your contribution and time. Thanks a mill.

For Mafia and hardcore police stuff, I enjoy The Sopranos, The Wire, The Shield, Brotherhood and Southland (yes, very light compared to the others but it's okay), Prison Break wasn't too bad either, as with Oz.

For lesser hardcore druggie flicks with a storyline, I like Breaking Bad (tried Weeds but didn't really get into it)

For law dramas, I absolutely love Damages, The Practice, The Good Wife (light but still entertaining enough)

For vampire stories, I enjoy True Blood, The Vampire Diaries

For sitcoms I love Modern Family (couldn't get into Men of a Certain Age and The Middle), Ally McBeal.

For Action, I love 24, Alias.

For family entertainment and general drama. Maybe categorising here is not so accurate, sorry. But under this segmenting anyway, I truly enjoy Desperate Housewifes, Brothers and Sisters, Mad Men, The Real Hustle, United States of Tara, Dirt (sad that it was cancelled so early in the day), Sex and The City.

For alien and sci-fi movies/drama, I like V, Flashforward, Heroes, (Don't quite enjoy Fringe or Sanctuary although I liked X-Files before), Star Trek Voyager (with Capt Janeway)

For medical flicks, Nip and Tuck.

For politics: West Wing

For supernatural series', Supernatural, Medium, Ghost Whisperer, Charmed.

For reality shows its So You Think You Can Dance, Dancing With The Stars, American Idol, Kimora Lee: Life in the Fast Lane, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Britain/America's got Talent, Britain's Worst Driver.

For history? Spartacus: Blood and Sand.

For mystery, Happy Town (yea, wish I had more to choose from here)

So, there they are! Should we share the same tastes in programmes or have almost similar likings, do please recommend your favourites! : ) Thanks again.
