Married Single Other [Blu-ray] [Region Free]
1.  Married Single Other [Blu-ray] [Region Free] DVD ~ Lucy Davis
The list author says:
  "There are only 6 episodes on this fantastically good 'thirtysomething' for Londoners. Beautifully filmed, witty, heartfelt and it gets better as each episode progresses. BR is cheap too. Invest in it."

Lip Service - Series 1 [Blu-ray]
2.  Lip Service - Series 1 [Blu-ray] DVD ~ Laura Fraser
The list author says:
  "Lead by the drop-dead gorgeous Ruta Gedmintas and Laura Fraser as an incendiary couple, this full-on Glaswegian Lesbian romp has brill characters and is properly sexy and not scared of it. I loved it."

Any Human Heart [Blu-ray]
3.  Any Human Heart [Blu-ray] DVD ~ Jim Broadbent
The list author says:
  "The varying stages and ‘true loves’ of Logan Mountstuart’s life are recounted by McFayden (young) and Broadbent (old) across the decades. Great story, top actors and beautiful to look at on BR."

Sherlock - Series 1 [Blu-ray]  [Region Free]
4.  Sherlock - Series 1 [Blu-ray] [Region Free] DVD ~ Benedict Cumberbatch

The list author says:
  "Not since Ben Kingsley scarred the living s**t out of us all as Don in “Sexy Beast” has there been an ice as terrifying as Stephen Rea’s ‘Gatehouse’. Slow to start, but then it Sopranos you..."
£13.30   Used & New from: £7.97
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (78 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Bored To Death - Season 1 (HBO) [Blu-ray]
6.  Bored To Death - Season 1 (HBO) [Blu-ray] DVD ~ Jason Schwartzman
The list author says:
  "Schwartzman and Hangover’s Galifianakis star, but its Ted Danson as the media mogul who can’t control his libido or his curiosity that will make you giggle. Weirdly uplifting. A breath of fresh air."
Out of stock

Pillars of the Earth [Blu-ray] [2010] [US Import]
7.  Pillars of the Earth [Blu-ray] [2010] [US Import] DVD ~ Ian McShane
The list author says:
  "At present a US-only 3-disc set (confirmed as 'Region Free' by many respected sites so it will play on all BR players). Ken Fowlett's huge book made into a saucy mini-series and very good it is too."
£22.03   Used & New from: £10.19

9.  How to Make It in America - Season 1 (HBO) [Blu-ray] [2011] [Region Free] DVD ~ Bryan Greenberg
The list author says:
  "Another winner from HBO - two hip New Yorkers are trying to get their 'street jeans' into shops while all the time dealing with egos, girlfriends, ex cons hustling in on the action. Very, very good..."
£10.03   Used & New from: £5.60
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Zen: Vendetta Cabal Ratking [Blu-ray] [US Import]
10.  Zen: Vendetta Cabal Ratking [Blu-ray] [US Import] DVD ~ Rufus Sewell
The list author says:
  "While Rufus will keep the ladies glued, two seconds gawking at the astonishingly voluptuous Caterina Murino will illicit more Purgatorial thoughts in us men than a wall of confessionals can deal with…"
£22.37   Used & New from: £19.60
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Boardwalk Empire - Season 1 (HBO) [Blu-ray] [2012] [Region Free]

The list author says:
  "Sopranos scriptwriters, Scorsese behind the chair, sumptuous million-dollar sets – a Prohibition, Molls and Mobsters morality tale that contains top named actors and rising new ones. A must-own on BR."
£20.23   Used & New from: £7.49
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (149 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

12.  Modern Family - Season 1-2 [Blu-ray] DVD ~ Ed O'Neill
The list author says:
  "Modern Family is huge in our house (our 16 and 14 year olds adore it). A huge array of real characters, smart witty writing and now this two Season BR box lets you in cheap. Treat your home to this."
£15.00   Used & New from: £9.28
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (69 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Downton Abbey Series 1 [Blu-ray] [Region Free]
13.  Downton Abbey Series 1 [Blu-ray] [Region Free] DVD ~ Hugh Bonneville
The list author says:
  "Sure you’ve seen this and loved it, but have you seen it on Blu Ray? I found it's not 'perfect', but it is teaming with clarity and details in areas the DVD didn’t reach - cheap too..."
£11.32   Used & New from: £1.61
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (615 customer reviews) | 13 customer discussions

Mad Men Season 4 [Blu-ray]
14.  Mad Men Season 4 [Blu-ray] DVD ~ Jon Hamm

The list author says:
  "The first of two seminal and hugely influential English TV series - this and "Civilisation" that follows. The sheer gravitas of Oliver's voice still resounds to this day. Restored and added to."
£25.00
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (514 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

Civilisation [Blu-ray] [1966]
17.  Civilisation [Blu-ray] [1966] DVD ~ Kenneth Clark
The list author says:
  "Years in the making, the print restoration of Kenneth Clark’s 1969 masterpiece is at times beautiful but at other times displays its crude vintage, but it’s still incredible stuff. Legendary BBC..."

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (99 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

18.  Pride And Prejudice [Blu-ray] [1995] [Region Free] DVD ~ Pride and Prejudice
The list author says:

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (702 customer reviews) | 6 customer discussions

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (204 customer reviews) | 6 customer discussions

20.  Bleak House (BBC) [Blu-ray] [2005] [Region Free] DVD ~ Gillian Anderson
The list author says:
  "Another stellar BBC adaptation filmed in High Def with incredible results. Dickens the genius storyteller, a hugely talented cast, massive grimy sets - it looks awesome on BR. So worth revisiting."
£9.70   Used & New from: £5.76
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (236 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

John Adams [Blu-ray] [2009] [US Import]
21.  John Adams [Blu-ray] [2009] [US Import] DVD ~ Paul Giamatti
The list author says:
  "USA-only ‘Region Free’ 3-disc set of the sumptuous HBO TV series. Some purists have called it historical pants, but Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney blister the screen with their talent and gravitas."
£33.15   Used & New from: £18.86
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (85 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

22.  Mad Dogs - Series 1 [Blu-ray] [Region Free] DVD ~ Max Beesley
The list author says:
  "The Majorcan holiday from Hell for 4 likely lads who find their host (Ben Chaplin) may have suckered them into some serious danger. But maybe they're not so naive as the greedy local cops think..."
£5.04   Used & New from: £2.27
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (82 customer reviews)

Sons of Anarchy - Season 1-2 [Blu-ray]
23.  Sons of Anarchy - Season 1-2 [Blu-ray] DVD ~ Charlie Hunnam
The list author says:
  "A six-disc two-season round-up offering up tons of American biker madness. It has to be said that the picture isn’t always state-of-the-art, but the show is so entertaining, you may not notice…"
£37.33   Used & New from: £19.95
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (73 customer reviews) | 7 customer discussions

Wallander - Series 1 & 2 Box Set [Blu-ray] [Region Free]
24.  Wallander - Series 1 & 2 Box Set [Blu-ray] [Region Free] DVD ~ Kenneth Brannagh
The list author says:
  "This remake of a dark Swiss cop show works because of Kenneth Branagh. You ‘feel’ his every flaw and stumble – but you also ‘know’ that he will hunt down that sick monster until his knuckles bleed."
£16.50   Used & New from: £12.99
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

25.  Damages - Season 1 [Blu-ray] [2008] [Region Free] DVD ~ Glenn Close
The list author says:
  "It kind of fizzled out as Seasons 2 and 3 dragged on, but this 1st one is a gem. Smart, cool, edgy - Glenn Close and Ted Danson mesmerizing. Looks beautiful on Blu Ray too."
£10.89   Used & New from: £2.96
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (111 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion
