What series should I watch?

So... I didn't have regular tv for about 10 years so there are all sorts of series out there that I never saw. I now have Netflix and I see that there are quite a few available. What series should I start? I am watching "Lost" right now and "Heros" and enjoying them both.

  • I've been watching "Bones" on Netflix and I've been enjoying that. Another good one is "Psych" =)

  • With 24, do you need to go in order of the series? I saw season one and two (a friend had them), but I don't remember a whole lot. If I pick up on 3 will I be lost?

  • Showtime's "The BIG C" is terrific. It's about a woman with malignant melanoma. She wants to live her life to the fullest.

  • Ones I enjoyed (I think most, if not all, you can get on Netflix):

    Quantum Leap (be warned, you CAN NOT get the finale on instant, DVD only)
    Nip/Tuck (save for when the kids are in bed)
    The Dead Zone
    Doctor Who
    Torchwood
    Eureka
    Supernatural (I think this one may be DVD only)
    Deadwood
    Veronica Mars
    Buffy
    Angel
    Alias
    Life After People
    Six Feet Under
    Pushing Daisies

  • I would have to say 24 too. Starting with season 1. We were lost when the series went off . I have all boys so lots of action adventure stuff here. Human Target is good. If you are watching on Netflix, the old series of Highlander is good to watch also. Wow, just too many to watch! lol

  • RE 24, there is little to no carry-over between seasons. Pick-up at #3 and go for it.

    Another goodie is The Office (US)
