Band of Brothers was made for TV. Watched all 10 eps back to back twice on diff days.

Edit: Intervention is one of the best shows on television right now. There is no plot line, just addicts thinking they are doing a show on addiction then being confronted with an intervention.

Edit 2: wow, I can't believe nobody mentioned The Office (US version) yet <--frickin fantastic

Dexter would be my first suggestion in reply to the topic (AWESOME series), but you're already a fan

The 4400 is another series i'd recommend for watching back-to-back.. awesome storyline and character development

there're 3 seasons of it so far (currently on hold while they work on season 4).. the first two seasons are abit hard to "acquire" for watching now, but they're released on dvd, so probably rent-able if you can't find it online

It's not just a drama, theres some good comedy in there too. And you can't go by the promo's, they don't do it justice - when House first aired I saw a promo and thought but when it won an award, I thought it worth checking out... now I have every episode in HDTV widescreen

lol, No mentions of Nip/Tuck?

It's a damn addictive show that I think you really have to start watching to get into it. From what I heard/saw previews of I wasn't interested in it. Then I caught an episode and was pretty much hooked. Great show.
