Derek seasons 1-2
This is a great family gift, especially if you have a dad with a childish sense of humor and a mom with a deep soul. For the moment, it looks like the only box set available is in region 2/PAL. Read Anglonerd’s review.
The Up Series
This is an amazing gift for your friends who like art films or documentaries. Read Anglonerd’s review.
Revenge of the Mekons
A fascinating story even for those who don’t know the band. This one’s good for your rebellious, punk rock little brother. Read Anglonerd’s review.
Doctor Who season 8
Orphan Black season 3
This is meant for fans of the show, but why not expose a friend to the show by getting them season 1 through 3? Read Anglonerd’s review.
This is for your friend who has seen every episode of Miranda on Hulu but has not yet seen the finale (because it’s not on Hulu yet). Mind you, you can also just get them the boxed set of the whole show. Please note that the finale is region 2/PAL. Read Anglonerd’s review.
The Moaning of Life
Really, for anyone (with a region-free DVD player) who loves to laugh. Read Anglonerd’s review.
Not Going Out seasons 1-7
A terrific box set of a British sitcom with an American style, great for introducing anyone to the wonderful world of British comedy. Note that these DVDs are in region 2/PAL. Read Anglonerd’s review.
In the Loop
A transatlantic comedy film, especially good for your uncle who’s into politics or your aunt who can’t tear herself away from Veep. Read Anglonerd’s review.
Friday Night Dinner season 3
Fantastic sitcom for anyone with a sense of humor, especially your Jewish friends or family. It doesn’t really matter what season you give them, they’re all the same. Note that these DVDs are in region 2/PAL. Read Anglonerd’s review.
The Thick of It seasons 1-4
A good companion to In the Loop for your Veep fan friends. Also, for anyone who wants to see the Doctor swear a lot. Read Anglonerd’s review.
The Imitation Game
Something a little safer for your more mainstream friends. Also, Benedict Cumberbatch, so. Read Anglonerd’s review.
If you’re looking for a really terrific science fiction movie not everyone has seen (and by science fiction, I don’t mean action movie), this is a winner. Read Anglonerd’s review.
Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell
The perfect pick for your friends and family who are into fantasy. This series is so new, they probably haven’t seen it yet. And it’s quite good. Read Anglonerd’s review.
Fist of Fun seasons 1-2
This is a weird one for hardcore comedy fans. It’s a 90s sketch show by cult comedy duo Lee & Herring. It comes with a ridiculous amount of special features, definitely gift worthy. Read Anglonerd’s review.
The Singing Detective
A terrific gift for a parent or grand parent. This old Dennis Potter show is of the very highest quality. Read Anglonerd’s review.
Rev. seasons 1-3
A sitcom especially good for your church-going family and friends who can laugh at themselves. It’s an honest comedy, not one that over satirizes or makes fun of the church. Please note these DVDs are region 2/PAL.
