Big Love
Homicide Life on the Streets
My So Called Life
One Tree Hill

*Mad Men*
*The Sopranos*
*Carnivale*'
*Seinfeld*
*Weeds*
*M.A.S.H.*
*Northern Exposure*
*Damages*

Jericho! It's a post-apocalyptic show about how a small town in Kansas survives after multiple nuclear attacks wipes out the country's infrastructure. It sounds dark and depressing but it really isn't. It's a great story about how a town pulls together to help each other survive along with a healthy dose of mystery and intrigue.

I also love Leverage, Season 1 should be out on DVD and Season 2 should be released soon if it hasn't already. Season 3 starts next month.

White Collar is great too but it just wrapped up the first season so I'm not sure when the DVDs will be released, hopefully before Season 2 starts either June or July.

Another great one is Human Target. Again, it just wrapped Season 1 so I'm not sure when the DVDs will come out but it's been picked up for a Season 2 this fall.

LOVED Warehouse 13!!!! Season 1 is being released at the end of June and Season 2 starts in July.

My husband just finished Farscape. I'm not big on Sci-Fi and I still thought it was enjoyable.

I Farscape. When they added the 2 main actors from Farscape to the StarGate series, I was until I realized they weren't the same characters. Can you imagine a StarGate/Farscape crossover? *SQEEEEE!!!*
It was just the best sci-fi series ever.
(I know, I know, its debatable. I loved it though, something about really appealed to me)

I can't believe no one has mentioned Battlestar Galactica! The women kick as much a$$ as the men, the social commentary (what it means to be human, religion, how to organize politically/socially/militarily after an apocalypse, etc), it's just great.

AND it has an ending. There are four seasons, and they knew it wasn't renewed when they made the fourth season. So the entire fourth season wraps up many unanswered questions, and the finale is truly a finale.

I got my husband the complete series for Christmas. You would have thought I'd given him a box with a million dollars in it.

OP, I also want to 2nd the person who said Damages. Great show.

Oooh, OZ, my most very favorite show! It's not for everyone, but if you can get into it, it's fantastic.

FIRELY!!!! Unfortunately, it's only 14 episodes. But very entertaining and worth your time to watch.

Putting in repeat plugs for The Wire and Mad Men.

We just started watching Arrested Development, which you can watch on instant download right now if you have it. We also are enjoying Nurse Jackie and Californication.

One of our favorite series of all time is Slings and Arrows. This was a Canadian show, about a regional theatre, and is particularly wonderful if you love Shakespeare. Loved this series so much!

West Wing rocks...just rocks. I was so sad for it to be done when we finished the season.

How can you not like Dexter??? We're watching it right now (just started season 2) and it's awesome.

My mom likes Bones and Boston Legal.

Monk, ER, CSI:Miami (we are finally caught up to when the new DVDs come out).

Everything by Bryan Fuller. Seriously I LOVE his shows. Wonderfalls, Dead Like Me and ESPECIALLY *Pushing Daisies*!!!

Also, extra votes for Weeds (though it really gets weaker and weaker with every season), Big Love, Mad Men, and Monk.

Oh, and I don't think anyones mentioned United States of Tara.

Arrested Development

Funniest show ever.
