Not sure where to put this, but I like a variety of prog's but love things like Spooks and Hustle and want to get a boxed set to take with us on hol's. What would you recommend please? TIA.

I presume you've seen 24??

'Fraid the whole 24 thing passed me by did The Wire for which my friends are constantly berating me for.

But I'm preggers now so am working my way through the local video library - will add these to my list. Promise! smile

Bought Prime Suspect Season 1 recently, and Downton Abbey...

Fringe, Arrested Development, Modern Family. I'm watching Cracker from the start on Virgin catch-up - its fab grin

'Long Way Round' - not a box set I don't think, but brilliant!!
Ewan McGregor btw!!

Wire in the blood

Wow, thanks. Tell me more about the various series!! All the American ones have passed me by (think it's the 10pm start time that has stopped me watching them!) What's 24 about, and Brothers and Sisters? Also have friends who can't believe I haven't watched The Wire, Deesus. Like the Prime Suspect idea. So which would you rank at the top?

West wing. Best thing ever on tv. In my vho!

Brothers and Sisters is, funnily enough, about a family of 5 siblings - it's got Sally Field, Rob Lowe, Calista Flockhart, loads of really good actors, and it's very funny. I got up to Season 4 and then found Grey's Anatomy, but will deffo get back to it eventually. Also, House is very good,

I have also watched all of ER, and West Wing, both very good, (misspent Maternity leaves)

The wire - am on my third re-watch and still find things i didnt see the first time. Each series is sort of self contained.
