Still waiting for Big Love On BD as well as the early seasons of Entourage.

I enjoy a lot of what was on that list, but I find HBO's pricing for blus ... problematic. They price their 12 episode seasons at the same level as 20+ episodes of other shows, while other popular short season shows (Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Justified, Weeds) don't. I guess there's a pay channel premium, but I still haven't actually bought anything from HBO, despite regularly checking the prices. One of these days I'll actually notice one of the good deals.

Along with the rest of "The Sopranos", HBO really needs to dig deep and bring all five seasons of "Six Feet Under" to blu-ray.

I cant believe you would recommend The Sopranos after HBO has left everyone that got the first season hanging for over 2 years now without a single word about seasons 2-5.

+1 on Big Love series

John Adams and Generation Kill would also be fit for this list.

The complete series Blu-ray set of the show is the way to go, even though you can now get season one and two in individual releases.
Not sure why HDD recommends buying the boxset when buying the two individual seasons is nearly $20 cheaper? Sounds more like a marketing pitch.

Default don't forget

Don't forget Tom Hanks' "From the Earth to the Moon". While having a different director for each episode wasn't the best idea, this series brought to light quite a few rarely told stories and facts about NASA and the Apollo program. Not as good as In the Shadow of the Moon but still one of my top vids for NASA themed viewing.

I am guessing it was not included as there is no Bluray version of it and probably never will be as it was filmed for TV. The collectors edition that came out a couple years ago on DVD is anamaphoric and cuts some details out of the frame at certain key parts.

Still one of the best mini-series out there and a great insight into the US space program.

No love for Dexter? That's not right. I would have put Dexter on the list before True Blood.
