I never seem to have the time follow TV shows every week. And I don't have Tivo...yet... I've been buying a lot of TV shows on DVD. Mainly comedies, (Seinfeld, That 70's Show, etc...). This site was kinda helpful, but there too many to choose from... http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/

Are there any other shows that are worth buying on DVD???
Recommendations???

I really like renting them with nextflix as opposed to buying them. Mostly because I really watch a series once with the exception of comedies.

The Shield
Coupling (BBC)
Arrested Developmnet
The Sopranos
Deadwood
Farscape (only if you like scifi)
Firefly (also scifi)
24 (has no replay value though so i wouldnt reccomend buying)

If the NBC show "Scrubs" is out on DVD, I will definitely be nabbing it!

The history channel thread remined me of another one. If you dont already have the Band of Brothers box set its a must have.

Bowers suggestion of Scrubs is also another great one.

In addition to Band of Brothers, I have seasons 3, 4 and 5 of Star Trek Next Generation. Eventually I'll probably pick up the first three seasons of M*A*S*H and later seasons of Night Court (season 1 is out now, but Markie Post isn't in the first season, so to hell with that).

I keep hoping WKRP will come out on DVD, but I've heard there are all sorts of royalty issues with the original music, so sadly it may never happen.

i used to love that show. That would suck if it never came out on DVD. I have the Greatest American Hero box set and they had some rights issues with alot of the original songs as well. They just added in some new songs where the old ones used to be. It sounds a little awkward but its not anything too major. At least the famous original theme song remains.

Losing the original music would really hurt WKRP. I really don't see how they could do it unless this issue is resolved.

Personally, I wouldn't mind paying a little extra to accommodate the royalties. But I may be in the minority on that issue.

Royalties are what is keeping most of the older shows from coming to DVD. New shows, i'm assuming that is all worked out in the contracts before the show is even filmed.

Seinfeld took forever because Jerry is well, greedy. Simpsons is taking forever because..well, I dunno. They claim its because they are still working on new episodes for the Simpsons. They aren't working very hard on em..they suck.

Just a complete guess here, but i wonder if the popularity of those two shows in sindication has anything to do with it?

For WKRP fans:

I found a link to an audio feed of the "turkey drop" scene.

Obviously funnier with the video, but the audio is still funny as hell.
