tv via dvd – 13 hours in one week
Mr. M and I just finished watching DAMAGES: Season 1 on DVD last night. It was a trek we started this summer in Pennsylvania, but were unable to finish until now. We’d look for the DVD set everytime we went to Fry’s/Best Buy, but they would never have it in stock… so we’d wait patiently until our next visit to see if it was around. It finally appeared at Best Buy during our Christmas expeditions, so we made the purchase and started over at episode 1.
I’ll calmly state that this was by far one of the best seasons of a 1-hour-drama I have ever seen. Every episode was a cliffhanger… and the questions you thought were answered all along were never resolved until the very last seconds of episode 13. And it was the best sort of series to watch on DVD, although late nights and work-trips came in the way of us sitting and finishing it within a couple nights. It only took us a week though, and boy am I sad that it’s over and done with!
I have to admit it’s been awhile since I’ve been so hooked on a series via DVD, but I always love it when I find something new like that. Season 2 of Damages doesn’t come out on DVD until next week… but it’s already on the Netflix list for viewing! Sadly, Season 3 begins on FX on the 26th… which means we’ll have to keep those on the DVR until we finish up with the next set of DVDs!
So what has your latest TV via DVD discovery? What TV series should we jump out and see as soon as we can (that we’re not already watching daily!)
Big Love and Curb Your Enthusiasm!!!
I <3 Curb… but Mr. M not so much. Haven't tried Big Love outside of a couple episodes on HBO back in the day though…
Greek! Though you can watch that entirely on Hulu. I think it’s one of the best shows on TV. Also, Scrubs.
Right now I’m watching HIMYM, which I’ve never seen and it pretty good. I’m also going to get Arrested Development and the Office, which I’ve never seen! And Glee! And maybe Mad Men!
Oooh… I’ve been waiting to see if GREEK is worth the watch! On the list it goes!
We got hooked on HIMYM in Season 3 via DVDs as well!
Have you watched House? We watched the first 4 seasons on DVD and it was awesome.
Next we’re starting Mad Men
We did Season 1 of HOUSE on DVD… but then tried to keep up on TV and it was nixed from the DVR list sometime last fall. We’ll probably start Mad Men shortly — just to see if we can jump into that fun.
