    I've gone without cable for eight month now, and while I find I don't miss TV as much as I thought I would, I'd like to find some programs on DVD I could get into. That way, I'd always have something to watch after work on my laptop (and I'd know what the hell people are talking about on the TV-related threads around here). Anyway, given the propensity for TV veiwing among the crew here, I figured I'd ask for advice on which shows to start renting. Outside of CSI and Rescue Me, I really haven't gotten into any TV shows in the last 5 years or so, so I'm pretty much a blank slate.

    A wonderful show about a mom selling weed in her upper-middle class neighborhood.

    "Entourage" is very entertaining. The first couple of years of "Six Feet Under" were great. "Deadwood" is very good. "24" and "Lost" are good selections too.

    Hey there, I loooooooove NetFlix just for this reason. I miss so many TV shows and it's a great way to catch up on some that I've missed. A few oldies that I got hooked on through NetFlix were The West Wing (start at Season 1) and Alias.
    Here are a few others I'd recommend:
    The Shield
    The Wire
    Rescue Me
    The Sopranos
    And, though I've never watched the DVDs, The Office (US version) is the best comedy on television right now and if you haven't been watching, you must start.

    "24." In my opinion, it's the best show on television. And It's great to watch on DVD b/c you can knock out a few episodes at a time. I have a heterosexual man-crush on Jack Bauer. I'm not sure what that says about me.

    LOST, 24 and The Sopranos, which I think have all been mentioned on here.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm is another.

    Also - I'm glad to see that the U.S. Office is now getting unqualified love. Remember for so long how if you brought it up, someone would say, "The British version is better."

    I'll jump in on the Weeds bandwagon...

    It may be the best half-hour show on television... Truly fucking hilarious....
