Recommend some shows i should buy on dvd that i could catch up on...

I currently am about to finish season 1 of "24" and i have all 6 seasons so far on dvd. I also watch Smallville on dvd and just recently purchased "its always sunny in philadelphia" season 1 and 2 on dvd.

Current shows i watch on tv are basically The Office and Hells Kitchen.

Are the FX shows worth a gander? Like "Rescue Me". I assume Heroes is a great show i need to get as well

My tv shows on dvd
Smallville
24
Arrested Development
Firefly
Southpark,Family Guy, Simpsons
The Office

Well Not too sure what you are into...but...

Arrested Development - Theres only 3 seasons but if you like the office, you will probably like this.

Lost - I dont know a single person who has started to watch the DVDs that didn't finish them within a month. I have gotten so many people who refused to watch this show into it. Most people hate on it at first but after the first viewing they are hooked. I've gotten 4 people hooked on Lost since last summer.

Heroes is a damn fine show. You can get season 1 for cheap depending where you go. We have a place called "Music Trader" here in SD where you can buy season 1 for $20.

Anyways, good luck finding stuff.

I do own arrested development which i have seen parts of season 1, but love it! So Heroes and Lost ill have to try out....my friends mentioned those as great shows. Im too much of an internet geek to watch shows regularly except a rare few. Although since I go Dish and DVR i have found myself recording alot. I just saw a few eps of "its always sunny in philly" and LOVE it, recommend to those with a crude sense of humor.

I wouldnt get into Lost if I were you....it starts out great for the first two season or so but then it starts getting dumber and dumber and you want all of these mysteries answered but they always leave you hanging...then when they do answer them its totally gay and they introduce new mysteries that are even gayer...not worth your time.

I cant really take full credit for this collection...most of them are courtesy of Netflix. The only ones I actually paid for were all 11 seasons of South Park, Band of Brothers, and Family Guy. And yes with the exception of Carnivale, all of those HBO shows are great. Carnivale is alright but far from great.

Did you stop watching in Season 3?

Season 3 was horrendous up until the last like 5 episodes. And season 4 continued at those last 5's pace. So, take Season 1 and 2 and end of 3 and 4 rather than letting the majority of Season 3 bother you.

No Ive watched every episode they've put out. Season 1 and 2 rocked...3 is when the show started going downhill and 4 was just plain stupid. It feels like the writers of the show introduced mysteries that they themselves didnt even know the answers to and now they're just making shit up on the spot.

+1 on "Dead Like Me". That was a great show and the sets are fairly cheap (I got them both for $15 on a "Buy One, Get One" sale at DeepDiscount).

I also agree with MTG about "Lost".

2. Heroes - great show but pay attention
3. Deadwood - Great show but started to drag on in the last season, need something fresh.
4. Friday Night Lights - Sure most on here have watched, can't wait till next season
5. Reno 911 - My god this show will make you laugh.

1. Prison Break - Man call me addicted, crazy good

Within each season, I'd agree. However, the overall storyline running through all the seasons is weak and almost non-existent. Each season, though, in itself, is good television. Just the story overall is: Break out (S1), On the Run (S2), Break out take 2 (S3), On the Run (S4).


2. Heroes - great show but pay attention

It's basically a less philosophical LOST. Damn good, though season 2 was horrible. In fact, I think the strike helped the story even if it kills off some viewers.


3. Deadwood - Great show but started to drag on in the last season, need something fresh.
4. Friday Night Lights - Sure most on here have watched, can't wait till next season
5. Reno 911 - My god this show will make you laugh.

Haven't seen the first 2 but refuse to watch Reno.

This season of lost that just passed was pure badass. I never been so hooked on a show like i was with this passed season. Best tv show episode ever is when they did the time travel deal. TV doesnt get better then that.

Also, Burn Notice. I love that show.

Its funny how alot of modern shows must have "continuity" or fans will dismiss it.

If you watch alot of the older shows from the 70's and 80's there really wasnt a whole lot of continuous storylines and continuity. Most hour long shows were self contained stories.

That's how X-Files lost me. At one time, it was a cool Twilight Zone kinda show with a little sci-fi thrown in... I loved it.

Next thing I knew, it was a sci-fi soap opera, and I didn't understand WTF was going on. That's why I can't get into Lost, 24, etc. I just can't be sure that I'll be able to watch every week.

The only way for me to enjoy those shows, is to download full seasons, or buy DVD boxed sets.

If you like The Office, check out the British original. It's a little darker and unrelenting in the pursuit of the pathetisad and stays closer to the documentary feel. The American Office has found it's own hilarious voice, but the BBC version is it's own little bit of utter genius.

As for TV shows to watch on DVD, I'll just go with shows no longer on;

Buffy
Angel
Firefly
The Office [BBC]
Coupling [BBC, think a dirtier, funnier, British, Friends]
Deadwood
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Dead Like Me
Sopranos
Wonderfalls

The Wire
Arrested Development
The Larry Sanders Show
Hill Street Blues [only the first two seasons available, but the genesis of quality TV drama]

I want to keep this thread going. IMO, TV shows on DVD (or Blu-Ray) are a much better value for the money you pay, just because you get so much more.

I just bought Firefly so Im pumped about that.

I finished Prison Break seasons 1-3 and I recommend them highly. Critics say the show fell off in Season 3, but they said the same about Lost.

Anyways, if anyone has anything new, throw it up there.

I am debating on whether or not I should pick up The Sarah Connor Chronicles right now.

That's because Prison Break's over arching themes and storyline aren't there. They are great stories within each season but you have to take each season on it's own. If you put them together, you have a pile of shit: Break out. Run. Break out.

24 is pretty much the same thing. While a well made show, its the same thing every season. Wash, rinse, repeat.

I got bored with it after the 3rd or 4th season.

Except 24 built that into the premise. Each was 1 day. Prison Break purports to have season to season story lines. I can't even begin to name the characters they've neglected, killed, or forgotten about.

This clip is great on it's own, but only watching the entire season could prepare how mind blowingly awesome it is in context.

In a nutshell, in case you can't sense it, there is profound subtext to Don's pitch, and it shows how [and how well] he takes all of life in, the good and the bad, and creates his craft, the ad pitch.

MOF, It's so powerful a clip, in context, that I'd suggest you not spoil it, if you're already certain you're going to watch.

Rewatching it went beyond bawling to shuddering and convulsing.

I don't know if any of this will interest you, but I've watched a few older TV series on DVD by getting them from the library, blockbuster, or netflix.

The Rockford Files - Detective drama from the mid 1970s starred James Garner as a pardoned ex-con private investigator who used his wits, his driving skill, and his ability to con information out of people instead of a gun to get the bad guys.

Stargate SG-1 (and Stargate Atlantis) - My whole family really enjoys these. We've been watching a few episodes per week for the past few months. We're on Season 8 of SG-1 and we just started watching Atlantis.

Combat! - 1960s WWII drama. It was critically acclaimed at the time but it's pretty ancient by TV standards today. I used to see it in reruns as a kid so I watch mainly for the sake of nostalgia.

I also endorse some of the shows mentioned earlier like Firefly and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Battlestar Galactica 4.0 is out on DVD today.

Yeah, I bought it AND Razor, then found out later that Razor comes w/ 4.0.

That wasn't explained on bestbuy.com

After leaving the store, I noticed a "Spearmint smell" coming from my best buy bag and there was a huge wad of gum, half way in its wrapper (like someone spit it out and then didnt throw it away) stuck on my Razor dvd. I thought about going back but I said fuck it and just took off the plastic wrap.

Then I find out that Razor is in 4.0, so now they better give me a refund on that Razor w/out the plastic wrap...Its still sealed at the top though with that DVD Sticker.

I just bought seasons 2.0, 2.5, 3, and 4.0 and Razor of Battlestar Galactica.

I already own season one and am halfway through and all my friends who watch it (the guys I watch Lost, Heroes, Jericho, Firefly, Arrested Development, etc. with) tell me that its right down my alley.

Since they are all on sale at Best Buy this week, I went ahead and picked them up.

Its a great show so far, and I hear that it only gets better.

What was the sale price? I stopped watching when I moved and the new cable network didn't carry SciFi, but I loved the show.

2.0 - $30
2.5 - $30
3 - $35
4.0 - $32 (or $38 for the gift set)

I think 1 is like $40, but I already own it.

So I just started watching Buffy Season 1.

I made a deal with my bud that if I watched Buffy, he had to watch the Wire.

So Far, I would say he's happier he took the bet, but I've heard that Season 1 of Buffy is hard to get through.

I am enjoying it, I've seen probably 6 episodes so far, and While I enjoy watching it, I would definitely have already tuned out if we didn't have a deal.

The wife and I just got done watching the first 2 seasons of 30 Rock on Netflix streaming and it was friggin' hilarious. Highly recommended.

I just finished the first season of Weeds. It's a really funny and cleverly written show that you don't hear a lot about.

Dexter is good if you like some drama with your dark comedy. I've only watched the first two seasons, but both had really good over-arching storylines that kept you popping in the next disc.

Entourage is a great show with a continual storyline. The characters are all very well cast and likable in their own way.

(For reference, I own seasons of Arrested Development, The Office, 24, Heroes, Entourage, and House. I enjoy/enjoyed but don't own: The Sopranos, Lost, Deadwood, The Shield, and others I can't think of right now.)

The first episodes are merely 'mildly entertaining,' but there will come a time where you are in awe of what you are seeing.
I can't say Buffy is the 'greatest' series overall, but it has several of the best episodes of a show in the history of TV. Episodes where you can mention the title to someone who hasn't seen it in a decade and their eyes will widen in recollection. 'The Body,' 'Hush,' 'Once More with Feeling.'

Give it until the two part season two finale 'Becoming I&II' before you give a final judgment.

The Middle Man it was a show on ABC Family only 12 episodes. It's basically a geekgasm a minute. Throughout the show there are tons of references to old SciFi movies/TV shows, comic books, geek culture in general. Great writing and fun ratatatat dialogue. Doesn't have the best in special effects or sets but it's definitely worth checking out.

From wikipedia:

A struggling female artist is recruited by a secret agency to fight against evil forces.<sup id="cite_ref-ABCFamPR_2-0" class="reference">[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Middleman_%28TV_series%29#cite_note-ABCFamPR-2)</sup> The pilot episode features a super-intelligent ape who escapes captivity, murders several members of the Italian Mafia, spouts a half dozen catch phrases from American movies on the subject including Scarface (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scarface), Goodfellas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goodfellas) and The Godfather (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Godfather), before being revealed as the pawn of the true villain.


The Middleman is a freelance fixer of "exotic problems," which include mad scientists bent on taking over the world, hostile aliens and various supernatural threats. Because of Wendy Watson's coolness under pressure and photographic memory, Ida, a robot in the form of a grumpy schoolmarm, and the Middleman recruit her to become the next Middleman. The series includes various pop-culture (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pop-culture) references, including many comic books, such as when Wendy calls herself "Robin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robin_%28Batman%29) the Boy Hostage", a quote from The Dark Knight Returns (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dark_Knight_Returns) by Frank Miller (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Miller_%28comics%29), demonstrating how Robin was often kidnapped or held at gunpoint by Batman's enemies.


Wendy lives in an illegal sublet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sublet) apartment with her young, photogenic, animal activist friend Lacey, across the hall from lyric-spouting Noser, and had a boyfriend in film school named Ben.

The Middleman is an American (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States) television series. The series, which was developed for television by Javier Grillo-Marxuach (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Javier_Grillo-Marxuach) he was a writer and producer on the first 2 seasons of lost.

It's an old show, but I own Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Season 3. I think it's great.
Another show I like (this isn't for everybody, I'm sure. Probably a bit boring for some) is called Foyle's War. It's about a police detective in England during WW2. He has to manage police work with everything going on with the war. It's very dry in that British fashion, but it's well made and well written.

ROFL 'no debate' ROFL

Buck - how's your mind? had your fill of dark and tense for the time being? If so, mix up 30R and Curb for a bit. I wouldn't marathon Curb though. Curb's great, but I'd imagine if they were piled all on top of each other, the effectiveness of each indiv ep would be muted.

DLM is a decent breather, if you were a Wonderfalls or Pushing Daisies fan, it has a similar vibe. Outlandish, absurd even, premise that still feels homey and comfortable.

6FU is middle of the road between comedic and dark/dramatic elements. Centers on being essentially a family drama.

Sopranos, geez it's hard to imagine just getting started on something so big. I'd say a lot of the same things as about 6FU except moreso. Funnier funny, more dramatic drama, darker darkers, lighter lights. And tons of plot developments/scenes/quotes that, at the time of first viewing, you couldn't wait to share with others.

So it depends on your mood. If you're looking for serious viewing of good TV, start in on Sopranos or finish Deadwood. If you're looking to lighten up for a bit, mix in some Curb. And sure, get yourself closure on the rest of F&G.

Truth be told, can't really miss with anything you've listed.

Man the amount of DVDs I bought and never watched when I was employed is quite astounding. I would have listed more options but I was using an iPod at the time and it was getting tedious.

I don't know why I ever stopped watching Freaks and Geeks, that was a pretty funny show that reminded me of High School. I could bang that out in one or two days.

Other shows that I own and need to watch eventually.

True Blood (I only own season 1)
Veronica Mars (I think I have 3 seasons)
The 4400 (I have 2 seasons)
Buffy The Vampire Slayer****(I'll explain this one below)
Mr. Show (Complete Series)#
Extras (Complete Series)#
Flight of the Conchords (Season 2 / I already saw season 1)
Prison Break (Season 4)
The I.T. Crowd (Season 1)
How I Met Your Mother (I have Season 1 and 2)

I'm sure I have more but I'm pretty sleep depraved right now.

# - I watched 1 episode of each of these and didn't really like it.


Buffy - I got almost all the way through Season 1. I have 3 episodes left but haven't watched in a while. Its just sooooo bad right now, I have no motivation to watch it. However, all my friends tell me I just have to get through season 1 and the rest is money.

Add me to the chorus, Whedon was still finding his sea legs with season 1, which was very low budget as well. See if you can make it to 'Becoming' parts 1 & 2. If you're not on board at that point, I'll agree it's probably not for you.

But interspersed throughout are some amazing standalone episodes. Hush, The Gift, Once More with Feeling. Whedon really flexed some muscles in story telling. I actually teared up RIGHT NOW, thinking about 'The Body,' and it's been a good 5-6 years since I saw it.

netflix now has available for instant watch:
Prison Break - all of the seasons and I'm currently in the beginning of season 1 and I like it so far
X-Files - never seen an episode in my life, will start to watch it when I'm done with prison break
24 - all seasons, I've seen the 1st season and I liked it and will watch the rest

I got the first season of Mork & Mindy from my local library to show my kids because I remembered liking it as a kid myself. It wasn't as good for me the second time around but my kids loved it. So I got seasons 2 and 3 from netflix. After finishing those (which I thought were pretty bad even when I was young), they want me to get the final season, season 4. I was surprised to find out that unlike the first three seasons, season 4 is only available as a part of the complete 4 season set (and it's not available through netflix). No way am I going to buy the whole series just to get the most hokey season of the series.

Yeah, the last season of Mork & Mindy went from stupid yet mildly amusing to beyond bad.

You could always rent a season of Alf instead. :)

I watched that back in the day...i remember it not being great. Who's the Boss was probably one of my favorite shows back in the day. I am irritated that atleast they didnt release all the seasons. They just quit after the 1st...so i hesitate to buy it not knowing if they'll release more.

Take Baby Lee's advice and try The Larry Sanders Show. It's an HBO production and funny as hell. Jeffry Tambor and Rip Torn just killed in this show.

So do I have to classify True Blood as a guilty pleasure? Is it a show for women?

I'm 9 or so eps into the first season and it's great.

PS, I think Sam is a

Werewolf

I picked up Season 3 of Night Court - the first season with Markie Post. I have no interest in pre-Markie Post Night Court.

Ummmm Markie :drool:

Screw DVDs! Netflix has put up a ton of shows in HD for streaming in the past month. In the past three weeks alone I've noticed Resuce Me, Weeds, My Name Is Earl, Arrested Development, The X-Files, 24 and lesser shows like Fox's Bones and Prison Break.

Season 2 isn't quite as good as Season 1, but it's still good. I'm looking forward to more.

I like season 2 so far. I'm on the 6th episode I think. Also I want to find out WTF that chick is exactly.

Also the scene with the pastors wife, Jason, and the bath tub gave me...well you know.

2nd season was fuckin retarded. loved the first season though

2nd season FOTC is way underrated. I think people get hung up on the songs not being as good as season 1 (which is to be expected, since season 1 used up a brilliant back catalog while season 2 forced them to pump out a bunch of new songs in a short timeframe), but the non-musical portions are just as hilarious as ever. The Prime Minister episode is right up there with anything in season 1.

30 Rock blows.

You couldn't be more wrong.

I was exaggerating but not by too much. At its strongest 30 Rock has been mildly entertaining to me. Mostly it just fails to make me laugh.

You should try. This is one of the best HBO shows I've seen. Top 5 on my list anyways.

Restarting Buffy. I made it through 9 episodes so far but I stopped because I hated it. Everyone has told me it gets better starting at season 2 so I'm finishing up these last 3 season 1 eps before I move on.

The only season of the NBC series Kings is on DVD and worth watching. It's an alt reality show about a monarchy set in a modern American-like city and loosely based on the biblical story of David (as in David and Goliath). You don't have to be religious to enjoy it though. It's more of a fantasy drama and it had a surprisingly reasonable ending for a show cancelled after one season.

I bought it for myself, i have a huge collection of 80's cartoons and 90's cartoons. When i have kids in the future they'll have some good old school stuff to watch. I have full seasons of Thundercats, Gijoe now, Masters of the Universe, TMNT, Ducktales, i can go on...

Heroes being cancelled brought up a hilarious point:

In 2007, Heroes took the TCA Best Show award stealing it from - get this - Season 4 of The Wire.

Most critics were tweeting about wanting to take it back.

Oh, that's exciting. I guess that would be 15 BC, with Augustus well into his reign by then.

Where do you think they will go with it? The events of the era seem to indicate that it would be more of a character/historical study rather than a military epic or a showcase of great events (like the Civil Wars were).
