A little bit of background here, I have a few decent box sets of DVDs but over Easter I noticed some Babylon 5 showing on watch, well I saw one episode (not one of the best from season 5) and that was it, I found myself reaching for my entire DVD box set (the only one I don't have is the lost tales) and I have started with the pilot movie "in the beginning" and I am now towards the end of season 2 and getting into if again big time.
The question is, does any other edugeekers have some box sets like this, which if they start they just can't stop, mine include
Will and Grace
House (need to get the season 8 set)
Star Trek TNG
And (as above) Babylon 5.
I also have all the original Star Trek and TNG movies in a box set, friends and to the manor born for the occasional drop in but not addictive like my list above.
Before you answer, please take note I am not responsible for any occurrences of become withdrawn from social activities due to resparking addictions to your favourite box sets.
There are a few where I have started and got sucked in.
24, West Wing, Walking Dead, Greys Anatomy, Private Practise, The Newsroom, Failing Skies, The Wire, The Good Wife, Battlestar Galactica (new version) etc.
The worst ones are the really good series that get cancelled like Flashforward and Zero Hour
I managed to get my oldest the complete box set of Monkey, anyone remember that from the telly a good few years ago now. My lads loved it lol
As in the badley dubbed Chinese TV show, that was pretty cool (I watched repeats when I was little)
I have the IT Crowd which I could watch all the series in one go.
I also love Spooks but havent got the box set, I could watch that none stop.
Also Chris Ryan's Strike back.
@BKGarry yes indeed that is the very programme :) I bought it for my oldest for his 40th a couple of months ago lol
I have just today finished importing all my DVDs to my PC for use in Plex... Turns out I have nearly 2000 episodes of various TV shows!
30 Rock, Andromeda, BSG, TBBT, Burn Notice, Chuck, Dollhouse, Eureka, Fringe, Futurama, Game of Thrones, HIMYM, Jeeves and Wooster, Jericho, Leverage, Life, Only Fools and Horses, Primeval, QI, Reaper, Red Dwarf, Scrubs, Star Trek: DS9/TNG/Enterprise, Stargate SG1/Atlantis/Universe, and Warehouse 13.
I've got 7 seasons of Family Guy on the way too (got em for £7, used, from Amazon! along with all the Family Guy movies, one of my missing seasons of BSG and one season of Scrubs).
TV Boxsets are so cost effective!
Wow that's a collection, very envious.
Well I turn 30 this year so not too bad for knowing it

He reminds me too much of Rick Mayal and I keep expecting him to go into young ones Rick mode. The chancellor, Cromwell also has a bit too much Blackadder about him.
I have every episode of Stargate SG1 in boxed sets, every episode of Stargate Atlantis in boxed sets, each of the Stargate films, every episode of Star Trek Deep Space Nine in boxed sets, every episode of the modern Battlestar Galactica in boxed sets, all of the original Firefly, every episode of Farscape in one big boxed set with Peacekeeper Wars, a lot of anime boxed sets and enough random DVDs to sink a battleship. :)
Hmmm. I've not watched anything for aaaagggeeesss but...
IT crowd, Black Books, The young ones, Sherlock (BBC & Granada), Invader Zim, Adventure Time, The Mighty Boosh, all the Monty Python movies. There's probably more. ..
I just like lighthearted things you can have on in the background, obviously...
I liked House up until 'Huddy'. Breaking Bad was epic (I'm still concerned for Jessie).
In need to get ST:TNG on DVD. Grew up watching that.
Don't forget The Wire, Deadwood and pretty much anything that HBO throws out - I think amazon prime have just signed with HBO for earlier stuff too.
I've gone through ST:VOY and SG1 a few times end to end
Also Buffy and Angel when I was married
