Top 3 TV Series Boxsets

I have found a new distraction! Boxsets. I have found a couple of series that I reccomend to help distract you!!!


I have watched every episode of House M.D. It is about Dr House (Hugh Laurie) who is insanely clever and can save just about anyone from dying, so long as it interests him. He is a diagnostic practioner and is obnoxious, rude sarcastic, but brilliant.

His long suffering team help him solve peoples medical mysteries and it all makes for one of the best wastes of time available. I reccomend you preorder series 1-5 now. With about 24 episodes a series, this will keep you ntertained for weeks.

House - Season 1-5 [DVD]


Adrian Monk was a brilliant detective for the San Francisco Police Department until his wife, Trudy, was killed by a car bomb in a parking garage, which Monk believed was intended for him. Trudy's death led Monk to suffer a nervous breakdown and he was discharged from the force, becoming a recluse, refusing to leave his house for over three years. He was finally able to leave the house with the help of his nurse, Sharona Fleming (Bitty Schram). The breakthrough allowed him to work as a private detective and a consultant for the homicide unit despite retaining limitations rooted in his obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD), which had grown significantly worse after the tragedy.

Monk's compulsive habits are numerous, and a number of phobias compound his situation, such as his fear of germs. Monk has 312 fears, some of which are milk, ladybugs, harmonicas, heights, imperfection, and risk.

I've just bought Monk Seasons 1-6 [DVD]. I would totally reccomend it, at such a ridiculously low price, it will keep you entertained for hours. Again it is the same kind of premise, a detective who is a little bit strange and solves cases other people would never be able to. I really dig this style of television series.


The show began in the year 2005, and tells the story of a series of case files, solved by an unlikely alliance between Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan's (Emily Deschanel) forensic anthropology team at the Jeffersonian Institution (a thinly veiled allusion to the Smithsonian Institution) and FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz). By examining the human remains of the murder victims, Dr. Brennan and her team provide scientific expertise and an outsider's perspective to the world of criminal investigation to the FBI. In addition to the murder cases featured in each episode, the series explores the backgrounds and relationships of the major characters including the developing friendship and possibly romantic relationship between Brennan and Booth. The series has comedic undertones.

Again with about 24 episodes each this is an incredible deal and the storylines just get better and better throughout the series' as the characters get devoloped: Bones - Season 1-3 - Complete [DVD] [2005]
