Looking for mature Chinese (mandarin) TV shows I'm looking for TV shows that are watched by adult Chinese men that are interesting and have in-depth plots and characters. I've enjoyed Black and White (痞子英雄), 怪侠一枝梅, Chinese Paladin 3 (仙剑奇侠传之灵珠神剑) and the beginning of 蜗居. Preferably modern, but if you can't think of any then ones set in the past would be fine. My favorite American shows are The Wire, and Breaking Bad, but shows like Suits, Psyche, Monk, Mad Men, and others would be good too. Thanks.

TV shows that are reproduced(?) from Jin Yong's(金庸) novels (They are 10 times better than Chinese Paladin.. ), the four classic Chinese Novels (Journey to the West ,The Romance of the Three Kingdoms ,A Dream in Red Mansions , Heroes of the Marshes) and other famous novels like The Mansion  大宅门,Princess Huanzhu 还珠格格,Beijing Youth北京青年...

Historical TV shows like  empire of Kangxi 康熙王朝, Inside Story of Xiaozhuang 孝庄秘史...

TV shows about life in army or wars like Soldiers Sortie 士兵突击,Sword 亮剑...(some of the translations may not be right)

and others Forensic Heroes法证先锋,Youth of Baoqingtian 少年包青天(judge in Song dynasty?)...

Kind of family life: Heart of Greed 溏心风暴...
