I have become a big fan of Jason Katims shows - Friday Night Lights and, currently, Parenthood. I think these shows do a tremendous job of creating drama within relationships, rather than developing drama by breaking up relationships (though there is some of that too). The characters are flawed but likeable, and the storylines touch on the real life issues that I think many people struggle through (i.e. Parenthood has a child character with aspbergers and portrays the struggles that both the child and his parents experience). I also appreciate that in both of these shows the kids are actually kids, not 16 years olds living like adults with no parents around.
