I just realized that no one has recommended Black Lagoon.
Seriously? It has gun-running nuns, psycho paramilitary maids, a flame-scarred female Russian mob boss, an island paradise populated almost entirely by violent criminals and a smuggling operation that uses a WW2 patrol torpedo boat as transport. How do you not say "Everybody needs to see this series at least once!"?
was frakkin' awesome
! I saw it last year/earlier this year and it totally rocked from beginning to end! The main characters were all cool and crazy in their own ways.
