Your friends are always telling you that you have to watch "House of Cards," "The Wire," "The Americans," or another critically-acclaimed show you haven't seen. And you'd like to, you really would.

But we know all the reasons why you're not: You don't have Showtime (or HBO or Netflix), or you can't fit one more show into your DVR, or, honestly, you'd rather just watch a "Friends" rerun for the 10th time.

Here are some of those shows you've been meaning to watch. Just as soon as you get time. And nothing else is on. Which is pretty much never.
