We are just in the process or re-watching the fantastic 'West Wing' and would like a new box set to get into. DH and I both enjoy CSI, Lost and watched the first 2 series of 24.
Can anyone suggest a new series for us? Ta smile

The Sopranos. Best television show EVER. It's just ridiculously good.

DP and I have similar tastes to you (love all the shows you mentioned) so I really think you would like it.

Band of Brothers is amazing. DP and I used to watch about 5 episodes in a row as it's so compulsive.

The Wire is another one I would heartily recommend.

The Wire

Battlestar Galactica, although it is sci-fi is pretty much a (very gripping) human drama.

Will try out some of those - what is The Wire about? Have never really considered The Sopranos but now may have to give it a go. Band of Brothers sounds great, off to look them all up now, thanks.

The Tudors. No really.

Haven't seen west Wing and are currently watching CSI Las Vegas. I have bought DH the new 24 box set for Christmas and he is getting me Bones. Bones would be my recommendation.

Rome series 1&2 (HBO) recommended by dh

Just started a box set of Prison Break series 1 tonight and it is FANTASTIC.

It's one of those 'oh even though its nearly midnight, let's just watch one more episode' dvds.

Prison Break. I want it for Xmas

Thanks everyone! Am going to order The Sopranos, The Wire and Band of Brothers - that should get us through the winter grin

apparently the wire can take a while to get into. i've seen the first couple of episodes and it didn't really click with me so i didn't bother with the rest, despite the hype.

ThatVikRinA22 Wed 04-Nov-09 21:12:59

box sets...

i thought some of the stuff DH got was a bit too 'teenagey' for me

then i watched it and changed my mind!

have you seen buffy the vampire slayer? or the X files from start to finish? (we watched one after the other after the other - loved em!)

weve got the wire series 1, still got that one to watch. we also love CSI, Lie to Me, House, that kind of thing!

DH keeps telling me how good Sopranos was., but i never watched it. tell me if its worth it - i can add that to my amazon wish list!
