    I was just talking to a friend who has lived overseas for the past 20 years about American TV and came to the conclusion that I really prefer the best (IMHO) TV series better than most films over the past few years.
    The Office
    30 Rock
    24
    Damages
    Dexter
    Madmen
    Battlestar Galactica
    Big Love
    Dr. Who
    MI5
    Torchwood
    Southland

    Given the choice of watching these series and paying a fortune to watch the latest big screen release, it's an easy choice for me to stay home.
    Am I just getting senile?
    Don't forget "Law&Order"

    Well now you know better. Maybe you should send them to someone who would watch them?
    I would, but hopes springs eternal - maybe THIS is the summer I will!

    Rome was a great show. Too bad it only lasted for two seasons.
    Yep, i knew before i started watching it that it lasted 2 seasons but my friend was watching in real time and was really bummed when he went on line to find out when the third season was to start...ouch! :x

    :?: :?: Why did you buy them?
    Didn't mash run for ever, how many DVD's in that set?
    I bought because I THOUGHT I would watch them. M*A*S*H was on for 11 years, and I paid a pretty price!

    wiki:
    The series premiered on September 17, 1972, and ended February 28, 1983, with the finale becoming the most-watched television episode in U.S. television history, with over 105 million viewers.

    Or just rent them. It's a lot cheaper. We did that for the first 5 seasons of 24 and watched them all in one summer. Also did that for the entire series of Alias and Deadwood.
    This is how we watched the entire Sopranos series. Works great.

    I'm way too ADD to do that! Too much of a good thing is still too much. I own two TV series in their entirety on DVD, Monty Python and my all-time favorite series, M*A*S*H. I can't bring myself to watch either one . . . some deep-seated Freudian issue, I'm sure!

    Amazing that it can be lost over copyright issues. But the wikipedia site said it will finally be available on DVD this summer. I remember when it first aired and it was one of those shows that everyone was talking about.
