Oh, HBO...

So, I thought HBO deserved a thread.
Not for the movies, we already have one of those; but for the series, people!

I don't know if it's the same in other countries, perhaps the series are transmitted via some other channel?; (if so, perhaps we could even expand this into a All-Series thread! *gets lost in delusions of grandeur*)

Which series got you completely hooked, and why?
For me there was Rome, In Treatment, and now True Blood.
My parents loved The Sopranos and Alice, and I hear Mad Men's not too bad either.

Spill!

I have the first season of The Wire on DVD, but I still need to find some time to sit down and watch it.

Michael, you stole the sentence right out of my mouth about Rome. OMG, I was addicted. I've watched the entire seasons twice now, and just started it again with my dad (who has never seen it). I'm amazed at how much more I find with every new viewing.

Haven't seen True Blood yet, but plan on it. I'm halfway through reading the series.

Ooh, are they good?
(They don't necessarily have to be just because the series' good, it could be the showwriters' credit for all I know.)
I found out there was a book series not too long ago, but I'm wary about ordering them...I'm so scared I'm going to find literal-Sookie disappointing, Anna Paquin does such a wonderful job.

God, I'd fill my house with DVDs if they weren't so expensive

I really like the series. Around Christmas time, the bookstore I work at was selling out of the books because fans of the show kept coming in to buy the books. It sounded to me like people are liking both. The books are really fun, and definitely easy reads.
