I've never seen an episode of any of these but there must be something to justify all the furore:

Anyone I've spoken to has said that "Band of Brothers" was an excellent set of DVD's - they all really enjoyed them

Band of Brothers is epic too and can be got for dirt cheap at this stage :

Also if anyone likes BOfB there is a new series coming out made by the same folks in the same vein :

Saw the trailer of this on the HBO site. Looks epic.

Oh - forgot to mention Entourage. Excellent series.

Band of Brothers is magnificent. Life on Mars is also excellent. Inspector Morse is the daddy of them all though IMHO.

BofB - was excellent alright, was repeated about four months ago late night on BBC2, and I watched it again.

The Wire - to coin a yank phrase, "is awesome". Marvellous TV, missed it first time round on Living TV but BBC2 have run all the series back to back over the last five or so months and have watched every episode and been dissapointed each time when it finished.

Rome - Series One was brilliant, Series Two poor by comparision (sort of became a bit soap opera-ish sadly)...

Seinfeld - The Daddy of US comedy shows, consistently brilliant for 9 Series. God I miss Gerry, Kramer, Elaine and Castanza ..

Curb Your Enthusiasm - Another absolute Quality Larry David production, except this time he steps in front of Camera..

Black Books- Dylan Moran and Bill Bailey in quality silliness.....
