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
I'm a let's player. Yeah. Let's play.

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.

Deadwood is my main suggestion.

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'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 least the first few seasons when Sorkin was doing it.

No idea what you are into so:

Prison Break
The Shield
Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Currently into, but have not yet had their final series:
True Blood
The Walking Dead
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
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!)

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