    Fringe - Amazing show

    Chuck - Turn your brain off and geek out

    The Wire - you will not be able to just watch one episode in a sitting, the seasons are also very different, but connected. Probably my favorite series, I've ever seen. But, no HD, it was shot in SD.

    Eastbound and Down - if you like crude comedy, this is THE show, again, no HD.

    If you don't own it on Blu-ray, get Planet Earth. It's pretty spectacular, even if you just watch and turn off the commentary.

    For the illegal download of movies and tv shows? No. And it's against the rules to talk about that here.

    Those are all really really old!! Funny (especially VoD), but very old... and I don't think would quite match the OPs HD collection.

    I've just started watching Modern Family thanks to the recommendations in this thread. Loving it!

    Shocked

    Im pretty surprised that nobody has mentioned Entourage. I feel that is an excellent show and has good story lines. Hard to watch just one episode tho. Im starting to get in to Rescue Me with Denis Leary. Pretty interesting show. Band of Brothers was a great mini series. HBO did excellent work. Seinfeld another amazing show. I've heard great things bout Dexter, I wanna get into that show in the next few weeks. Curb and Sunny Excellent Excellent shows. I would recommend watching Life but I heard that some parts were CGI and the narrator I think sucks. <Oprah> Not really a fan. You could always mute it tho and watch it with no sound. Lloyd
