    Evening! I was hoping for some recommendations of good TV dramas that I can buy on box set. I was looking for crime/ police based dramas. Any ideas? Thank you!

    Prime Suspect is the most gripping box set I have ever bought.
    We watched the whole lot over 2 days. Not very cheery but you can't have it all!

    The Wire - make sure it has subtitles
    The Sopranos - crime family drama?

    The Wire

    NYPD Blue

    ..a tongue in cheek reference to the need for a crash course in gangsta slang? ;-)

    ..and not forgetting good old Sherlock Holmes.
  9. Both of those but I don't think you need subtitles??

    I need subtitles for most good quality American dramas (West Wing, The Wire, Boston Legal etc). My hearing is not great and the dialogue in such series is often fast and furious and not always quite distinct enough for me. Turning up the volume doesn't help as much as you'd think it might.
    On a daily basis I bless Red Bee and greatly appreciate subtitles on dvds - what a difference they make.
