    So over the past few years I've become increasingly enamored with devouring shows on DVD.

    There are shows I never would've started watching if a friend or co-worker or random person didn't say "hey, you should watch this". To spread the joy, here's a few shows I've discovered of late:

    It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
    Extras (w Ricky Gervais)
    The Office (British version w Ricky Gervais)
    Flight of the Conchords
    Strangers with Candy
    Californication

    Of course, I would also add Arrested Development but I watched that from the getgo.

    I've also been re-watching the X-Files on DVD and its been great to go back and see some of those, it is a really great show. The next show I'm hitting up will likely be a drama, and I'm hearing good things about The Wire.

    Any suggestions?

    All three seasons of Arrested Development. They've got more jokes in one 22 minute episode than most series do in an entire season. You can watch each episode multiple times and still pick up on more subtle but hilarious jokes.

    The best thing is it's both highbrow and lowbrow at the same time.

    I think most, if not all of the episodes are on Fancast now to watch for free

    It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
    I love the show but, never watch episodes twice. I just DVR it and delete.

    Extras (w Ricky Gervais)
    I have both seasons and the Christmas special on DVD. Gervais is the best.
    The Episode with Bowie is my absolute favorite. Fat little man with a pushed up nose... :rofl:

    The Office (British version w Ricky Gervais)
    This is what first introduced me to Gervais. I downloaded all the episodes about 5 years ago. I never did get the DVDs.

    I have a few seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm on DVD. I've seen them all but, rented the seasons I didn't buy. I love that show.

    I have the first 3 seasons of The Shield on DVD. The rest I downloaded.

    I know other people who love Flight of the Conchords but, I can't get it to them at all. As a matter of fact the first person to tell me about that show a couple years ago can't stand Curb Your Enthusiasm. That's why we have chocolate and vanilla I guess.
