Also Firefly if you can find it.
The New Battle Star Galactica was outstanding, you only have to be a little bit into sci fi, the acting and dramatic tension are what carry the show.
Caprica was OK as back story, haven't seen blood and Chrome

Cheers - Enjoyed it at the time, but it's very dated and doesn't hold up
How I Met Your Mother - I never got in to this one.
Sons of Anarchy - Unfamiliar
Mr. Robot - Unfamiliar
The Walking Dead - I haven't gotten in to it, but what little I've seen has been good.
Frasier - Good
Scrubs - Good
West Wing - Good (and very good the first 2-3 seasons. It jumped the shark after 9/11. Just wasn't the same.)
Seinfeld - Very good
Firefly - Very good
Battlestar Galactica - Awesome
The Wire - Awesome
Breaking Bad - Awesome

I've been watching Scandal. It's pretty good, but not sure how much life is left in it, although the writers seem to be very good at still coming up with surprises.

Having sought wise counsel here, and having researched reviews, awards etc., I've narrowed it down to The West Wing and Frasier.

There are well over fifty DVDs in my Amazon wish list including fourteen US TV series.

The list will have to remain firmly in the 'wish' category pending the arrival of the lottery jackpot, but I'll be on the lookout for the above two when the economic opportunity presents itself.

Thanks one and all.

I believe so. To the best of my recollection there is usually a hidden menu which requires the inputting of a code from the remote.

ETA: CAN I MAKE MY DVD PLAYER MULTI-REGION?

I haven't looked at that one in depth, but if there is a fee involved vote with your feet, or your mouse. There should be plenty of free sites.

When I looked into this years ago, it was only certain models that could be and lots of googling was required. I'd say odds are that any one particular model can not be hacked.

if you can find an Apex 1500 that can easily be hacked. Not sure if they still make them
