I don't have good enough internet to have netflix and I want to buy a good box set on DVD for the new year. In recent years I have enjoyed Nashville and True Blood. I bought Justified last year and it was OK but I wasn't hooked enough to keep going with it. I got Veep Season 1 as well but wasn't too impressed with that. I have seen almost no other recent TV. I'd be grateful for any recommendations.

Parks and rec (persevere past the first season)

Boardwalk Empire
Peaky Blinders
The Wire
The Blacklist
Homeland

The walking dead is fantastic. I binge watched it all last year to catch up to the current series and so wish I could watch it all for the first time again. Also love game of thrones even though it's not my usual thing at all. I have the ER box set stashed away for when I have time too, can't wait.

Black Mirror is the best thing I've watched recently.

Breaking bad. I am now watching sons of anarchy and quite enjoying it but loved, loved breaking bad.

I watched SOA first and afterwards Breaking Bad seemed rather slow paced to me. Still great.

IRobot is very gripping
