I just started a membership with zip.ca (the canadian netflix) and my wife and I would like to catch some television series for the first time. I'll describe a bit about what we've seen and liked, and if anybody has recommendations they'd be much appreciated. The only requirements are please no reality tv, and it has to be available on DVD.
We have both watched and enjoyed:
24 (I gave up halfway through the last season, she stuck with it)
The X-Files (up until season 5 or 6)
In addition, she watches Gilmore Girls and CSI. We tried Curb Your Enthusiasm and she wasn't a big fan. Neither one of us really got into Entourage after watching the first couple of DVDs. We have only seen the pilot of the Sopranos, but it didn't grab us.
I have heard some good things about Veronica Mars and The Shield... any opinions on those two? Any other suggestions? Heroes?
