TV boxset recommendations

Hey all,

I've got into buying boxsets as of late. I'm looking for shows that have finished their final series/season so I can buy the complete collection as it were.

If anyone has any recommendations of shows (especially ones they consider underrated) that'd be great

Charmed is a very good show with a pretty cool looking box set. I'm considering buying it myself.

Also Star Trek: TNG is another one with a pretty cool box set I would like to get my hands on.

Scrubs!
If you don't have it already.... SHAME ON YOU!
If you're just looking to watch it though to watch a series straight on... it's on Netflix

I'm going to cheat just a tiny bit, but if you're into Machinima you should check out the Red Vs Blue 10th anniversary boxset. Half-off on on Amazon and the RvB series is amazing to follow since you can watch the team grow and see their skills and abilities grow during the process (The last 3 seasons were superb.)

Battlestar Galactica - amazing series & complete. (It's prequel series too, Caprica.)
Supernatural - my favourite series, it's into it's 8th season (9th confirmed). Obviously not a finished series, but seriously...it's awesome - I can't not recommend it.
Spartacus: Gods of the Arena - it was a prequel sort of series, but in my opinion, the best Spartacus series.
Dexter - don't even know what season it's upto now, but S4 is epic. *nods*

The West Wing. Some of the best writing in a TV series...at least the first few seasons when Sorkin was doing it.

Arrested Developement. If you watch all three series over a few weeks, it is just brilliant, like one long movie.

No idea what you are into so:

Prison Break
Spooks
24
The Shield
Friends
Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Lost

Currently into, but have not yet had their final series:
Dexter
True Blood
The Walking Dead
Supernatural
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
CSI: NY
CSI: Miami - I think, I missed the first 4 episodes of Series 10, so never bothered, waiting to watch it on Lovefilm (damn you Channel 5, changing it from Tuesday nights to Saturday nights!)
NCIS


Series that I enjoyed, but got cancelled, never had their final ending:
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Heroes
Flash Forward
