    That poll on addictive tv series is British. Notice that Dr Who is on it.

    I agree with the poll becouse 24 is addictive.This is one of the shows that you have to watch live.Some of the others like lost,prison break were amazing when it started but later quality faded.CSI is an amazing show but you can miss an episode and watch the next without feeling left out.

    Ah, ok - I'll edit to add that it's a British poll. :) (I'm American and I love Doctor Who, so I didn't think about it. :p)

    ETA: Is LOVEFiLM.com a British site? Or is the site I got the news from a British site and I didn't notice? I'm just curious because I'm not sure why it didn't specify that the people polled were from the UK.

    Eh. I'm not sure I like the DVD cover. But I'll probably get over it.

    Wow, I only watch one of the most addicting shows. I wonder what that says about me? (Probably that I like random shows that no one watches...)

    I didn't mean to sound critical about the item, but it might be confusing to American viewers to see some shows that are not familiar or no longer being aired. Just trying to help with clarity.

    From the lovefilm.com website, under "About Us":
    "In just over five years, LOVEFiLM has grown to become the UK’s third largest home entertainment subscription service."
    The contactmusic.com site looks very American, probably deliberately. There really isn't much to show that it is British on the surface, but the spelling is British and a little digging reveals this in the TOS:
    "Any legal claims brought against Contactmusic.com shall be governed by and construed in all respects in accordance with English Law and the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts for the resoloution of any dispute or differences arising.

    Awesome, thanks for the detective work. :) *fixes*

    Oh no, I didn't think you sounded critical at all, and extra clarity is always good. :D

    I'm not sure about the green tint of the box sets, but Marg looks awesome. I hope one day we will see her as front and centre on the box sets though.
