My Guilty Pleasure....DVD Series!

My name is Dona and I am a closeted DVD series addict. What is a DVD series? A season-long series of a television show that I never got to watch during the year. I love to sit and watch ALL the episodes of a show over the course of a long weekend, day and night. It's sick. It really is.

It all began with LOST....a show that made me afraid of ever getting on a plane again...can't wait till it resumes in February!

I loved the direction so much, I decided to check out an episode of some random "spy" show called ALIAS. To this day, it's my favorite show EVER.

Then I moved onto PRISON BREAK. The story of the innocent brothers and the hottie Wentworth Miller addicted me like a drug for 2 weeks.

Then my friend insisted I borrow his HOUSE. The flawed hero did me in...I was hooked for 2 seasons straight and bought season 3.

Then I decided to (finally) watch an episode of BUFFY. And them I proceeded to spend the summer watching the following 5 seasons!

Then of course, I had to check out ANGEL, who I thought really developed a personality for himself on his own in the middle of season 1 now.

Yes, I am a huge fan of the DVD waiting till next week, on-demand and oh so gratifying...anyone else a DVD series addict?

I'm so excited that I got my Netflix subscription back so that I can get on the DVD set bandwagon. I'm planning to watch Season one of Dexter and all of Veronica Mars, eventually.

And I'd really love to have the time to watch all of the Felicity episodes sometime!

Oh, this is me too, Dona! I love doing it with the Survivor seasons and Prison Break. I totally need to do that with Veronica Mars and if I could order one new series right now, I'd order Coupling from BBC--my fave show ever!

Dona, I love watching LOST on DVD, and it's also a terrific way to watch 24! Right now I'm in the midst of a Grey's Anatomy marathon.

I do the same thing--mainly through netflix, as well.

I got hooked on Oz, Sopranos, Smallville, and lots of others shows this way... :D
