The temptation to emo is rather immense right now but I'll resist and drop you an indie recommendation. 2 weeks ago I recommended Yahtzee's The Art of Theft to you and this week I'm recommending the John Defoe quadrilogy from the same guy. The 4 games comprising it start with 5 Days a Stranger and go from there. You can download them from http://www.fullyramblomatic.com and they're quite good adventures. If a little dated.
If you're in the UK, you should be watching Mongrels on BBC3. I would put a video up but I can't find any videos that are also viewable in the US. Track it down and enjoy.
