Top 10 TV Box Sets You Need To See Or Start Watching

Top 10 Box Sets You Need To See

Might I remind that these are in a list of how enjoyable we found the entire series to watch.

1. 24

Jack Bauer really has had some bad days in his time, all of which can be bought in the eight season 24 box set – what better way to get you into the mood for the upcoming feature film. P.S Touch is the latest Jack Bauer TV work since 24 and is a great new TV series

2. Lost

Lost started very well as a great TV show, then got progressively weirder and more confusing. ‘Others’, polar bears, smoke monsters and time travel are just the tip of the iceberg, but if you accept that Lost is a supernatural drama where such oddities are allowed rather than simply a story about a plane crash then it really is worth sticking with to the end.

3. The Sopranos

In our opinion – the greatest thing that has ever been shown on the small screen. Telling the story of Tony Soprano and the less than wholesome lifestyle of his associates in New Jersey, each episode of The Sopranos feels like a film in its own right – and in six seasons there isn’t a weak one amongst them.

4. Entourage

Based largely on the experiences of executive producer Mark Wahlberg, Entourage tells the story of an up-and-coming film star and his friends as they navigate the unfamiliar world of Hollywood. Each episode of the show includes at least one celebrity cameo – during the eight seasons the show ran, everyone from Kanye West to John Cleese made an appearance.

5. Band of Brothers

A TV show that involved Stephen Spielberg and Tom Hanks was also going to be a bit on the epic side, and Band Of Brothers doesn’t disappoint. Following the story of ‘Easy Company’ from basic training right through to the end of the war, the show is widely regarded as one of the best TV shows of recent years… so what are you waiting for!

6. The Wire

Each season of The Wire tells the story of a different part of broken Baltimore – namely the drug trade, the ports, politics, the school system and the press – and it seems nowhere is safe from death and corruption.

7. The OC

Attractive ‘teens’ hanging out by their infinity pools, attending large college house parties and having an unrealistic amount of sex doesn’t sound the makings of a great TV show – but if you can get past the jealousy, The OC is without doubt the best show of its kind – much better than 90210.

8. One Tree Hill
One Tree Hill is in it’s final series where it has seen ups and down along the way, some say they may have over done it by a few series but it is a great teen watch none-the-less.

9. Big Bang Theory

Big Bang Theory is a great current series still going on, now on Series 5 the gang are still going strong. It’s a small group of 4 nerds and 1 pretty neighbour across the hallway. Worth a watch/buy and full of laughs and giggles – may even learn a thing or two.

10. Prison Break

When the nights are long and the rain is incessant you need something to keep you occupied that doesn’t involve leaving the familiar warmth of your bed. Box sets have become something of a phenomenon over recent years – not only do you get real value for money compared to buying an individual season, but you’re guaranteed not to be at a loose end for months at a time.
