The Greatest Television Shows Ever, Part Two

A Listmania! list by L. Ross "Lo" (London)
 
The Wire: Complete HBO Season 1-5 [DVD]
1.  The Wire: Complete HBO Season 1-5 [DVD] DVD ~ Dominic West
The list author says:
  "Possibly the best television show ever; an exercise in social conscience and commentary. HBO proves itself yet again."
£56.99   Used & New from: £39.95
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (327 customer reviews) | 18 customer discussions

Six Feet Under: Complete HBO Seasons 1-5 Collector's Edition (24 Disc Box Set) [DVD] [2006]
2.  Six Feet Under: Complete HBO Seasons 1-5 Collector's Edition (24 Disc Box Set) [DVD] [2006] DVD ~ Richard Jenkins
The list author says:
  "Another HBO smash: the show that proved American Beauty writer Alan Ball to be worth his salt. A bleakly comic tale peppered with morbidity, yet engrossing."
£66.62   Used & New from: £33.70
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (103 customer reviews) | 6 customer discussions

True Blood Season 1 (HBO) [DVD] [2009]
3.  True Blood Season 1 (HBO) [DVD] [2009] DVD ~ Anna Paquin
The list author says:
  "Ball's latest attempt is not near as good as 'Six Feet Under', nor is it a great TV show per se, but the first season was entertaining. Hopefully season three will make up for the lame 2nd season."
£12.99   Used & New from: £4.94
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (210 customer reviews) | 14 customer discussions

Dead Like Me - Season 1 [DVD]
4.  Dead Like Me - Season 1 [DVD] DVD ~ Britt McKillip
The list author says:
  "'Pushing Daisies' helmer Bryan Fuller's earlier show is not as visually arresting as PD but a story of more pathos. Season Two also available."
£23.59   Used & New from: £2.66
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (54 customer reviews)

Doctor Who: Series 1 - 4 Collection [DVD]
5.  Doctor Who: Series 1 - 4 Collection [DVD] DVD ~ Christopher Eccleston
The list author says:
  "Finally, a full boxset of Russell T. Davies great updated Doctor!"
£35.00   Used & New from: £30.15
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (220 customer reviews) | 10 customer discussions

Glee - Season 1, Volume 1 - Road to Sectionals [DVD]
6.  Glee - Season 1, Volume 1 - Road to Sectionals [DVD] DVD ~ Lea Michele
The list author says:
  "A biting and engaging comedy (even if it is a bit trivial and silly). Coming 2010 to the UK, can't wait!"
£6.66   Used & New from: £0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Freaks & Geeks: The Complete Series [DVD] [2001] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
7.  Freaks & Geeks: The Complete Series [DVD] [2001] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] DVD ~ James Franco

£30.67   Used & New from: £24.34
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (17 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Wonderfalls: Complete Series [DVD] [2005] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
8.  Wonderfalls: Complete Series [DVD] [2005] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] DVD ~ Caroline Dhavernas
The list author says:
  "I haven't actually seen this, but it is another Fuller show and I can't wait to see it."
£15.11   Used & New from: £7.99
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

Friends - Season 1-10 Complete Collection (15th Anniversary) [DVD] [2004]
9.  Friends - Season 1-10 Complete Collection (15th Anniversary) [DVD] [2004] DVD ~ Jennifer Aniston
The list author says:
  "Okay, okay, I've caved. 'Great' may not mean artistically in this sense, but 'Friends' was the definitive sitcom and possibly the most successful show ever. A must watch. And could it BE funnier?"
£136.95   Used & New from: £48.00
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (755 customer reviews) | 22 customer discussions

The Thick of It - Complete First Series [DVD] [2005]
10.  The Thick of It - Complete First Series [DVD] [2005] DVD ~ Chris Langham

Generation Kill [DVD] [2008]
11.  Generation Kill [DVD] [2008] DVD ~ Alexander Skarsgård
