    Hi

    I need your help.

    I would like to buy some TV-series but I am from outside US and I have never seen one second only of the following:

    - C.S.I
    - The Shield
    - 24
    - Dark Angel
    - Son of the beach

    Please recomend the best 2 or 3 and rate all ( 1 up to 10 ).
    They are all very expensive so I need the best options.

    You can include other good tv series ( I have seen Sopranos and Twin Peaks and Six feet under recently ;all very good)

    thanks in advance

    Edgler

    I've only seen 24, and it's good, but I imagine its replay value would be limited. If you like The Soprano's et al, then you have to get season 1 and 2 of Oz, a prison drama and quite possibly the best thing that's ever been on TV.

    Not that I know off, am waiting too. Season 4 has been on C4 and there are no plans to show season 5 at the moment. Very nearly a reason to get E4, but the thought of watching any serious drama with a logo in the corner makes me vomit, someone taped The Sopranos for me once, from E4, and it was awful. Sorry, am an anal type, but would rather wait for the discs.

    can we not recommend any British TV series to you? i am guessing that you are probably not from Britain by the fact that most of the TV programmes they show here are actually series from the US anyway so you would probably have seen them all if you did live here!

    in which case i would like to recommend to you SPACED and Red Dwarf! :smashin:

    out of the US series you listed i would recommend Dark Angel which i would probably give 7 or 8/10. i have 24 season 1 but have not actually watched it yet, but it is supposed to be good!

    X-Files? Still the best Sci-fi of all time IMO.

    I'd also recommend Buffy and Angel - both are truly incredible once you get into them.

    24 is brilliant as well but I doubt I'll watch the first series again tbh

    Funnily enough I wouldn't consider BOB a "TV series", although that's exactly what it was/is.

    Definitely recommend that along with possibly 24 (limited "re-use" value) & CSI.

    Twin Peaks :eek: Do your sanity a favour - give it a miss :D

    If you haven't seen 24 before, buy that. It's probably the cheapest of the lot and even if you only watch it once, it is 18 hours long.

    It's also brilliant TV.

    24 the best of the bunch you mention, I also like CSI but do not know if I could watch them again and again.
    Of the TV series that are on DVD I like The Avengers, The Prisoner, and Ultraviolet, Stargate and Babylon 5.

    From your list I would go for C.S.I - exciting and different with really good special effects. 24 is fantastic but has limted replay value. If your into Sci-Fi try "Stargate SG1" - great action packed stuff and most of the DVDS have really good extras (commentaries etc)
