*Looks at list; gets to number 5*"wtf, 'Breaking Bad'? How is that not number 1?"
*quickly scrolls down to 1*"Oh. Right. That show."

Still think "Breaking Bad" should be at least number 2. I mean, "Sherlock's" great and all; "Frozen Planet" was okay... and I haven't seen any of "Treme" yet, so I can't comment.

But man, "Breaking Bad"--especially season 4--is an amazingly special series. If not the best thing on TV, then it's certainly second best. And the blu-ray--with all of its extras--is simply incredible.

But whatever. It's your list, Aaron. That "Breaking Bad" is on the list at all is awesome, even if it's not in the place I'd put it.

I liked the transfers for Primeval Vols 4 & 5. Maybe not Aaron's cup of tea?

Breaking Bad season 4 is an amazing blu-ray!
Agree with #1
What the hell is the big deal about treme?

No Boardwalk Empire?

The review and release date both being in 2012, and after this glowing review on the site I thought it would make it.

1. Game of Thrones
2. Breaking Bad
3. Boardwalk Empire

Is it my imagination or does Bryan Cranston look like Kratos (God of War) on the cover of 'Breaking Bad: Season 4'?

As a fan, i honestly thought Frozen Planet was rather dull. Limited by the subject matter and it just seemed most of the interesting bits had already been covered elsewhere - like the boxart though.

Is it my imagination or does Bryan Cranston look like Kratos (God of War) on the cover of 'Breaking Bad: Season 4'? lol. agreed.

1. Dexter S6 isn't released until August
2. Season 6 was one of, if not the worst seasons yet.
3. Showtime doesn't give a crap about features like the superior HBO does. Hell's best Offer really goes out of their way to make sure their Tv shows are treated to greatness on Blu.
4. The entire lists was disregarded with the omission of Boardwalk Empire, thus meaning a better, more informed list will be made after August ends. The release of Walking Dead S2, Dexter S6, and Boardwalk Empire Season 2 will be given proper consideration.
5. Only yvonne strahovski as a fully nude killer in Season 7 can bring dexter back to being the best show on Tv. Luckily she's in season 7, can't promise anything past that.

Yikes. I did overlook 'Boardwalk'. For some reason I was thinking that I reviewed it at the end of last year. I got confused. It should be on the list for sure.
