You consider walking dead action?
You are far more gracious than me, the majority of the last season was a soap opera with zombies.
On that note, how do you feel about sci fi?
There are several series running on the sci fi network that aren't too bad.
I personally prefer shows that like to mix in a heap of comedy along with action and maybe even some intellect.
On that note I recommend Eureka (not to be confused with Eureka 7 AO which is a anime) from the syfy channel. Sadly, it's already into it's last season though.
