I might watching too much television, if there’s such a thing. I do love diving into a good television show and getting pulled into the comedy, drama, romance, or whatever type of show I’m watching. Every year my husband makes sure I have some television series on DVD box set for the holiday break. He knows how much I love catching up with my favorites over and over again.
It’s been a while since I’ve shared anything about Mill Creek Entertainment but when I saw some of the television series they have coming to box set this holiday season I knew I wanted to share some of my favorites.
Rescue Me: The Complete Series
For the first time ever, all seven seasons of the Emmy® and Golden Globe®-nominated Rescue Me are available in one complete Blu-ray box set Mill Creek Entertainment. From series creators Denis Leary and Peter Tolan, the highly acclaimed Rescue Me galvanized audiences with its uncompromising portrayal of the New York City firefighters of 62 Truck, whose duty to save lives puts their own in constant turmoil – on the front lines, in the firehouse, and at home. This complete, 16 disc special edition Blu-ray set is now available with an MSRP of $149.98.
Leary is electrifying in his role as Tommy Gavin, a deeply driven first responder with a combustible personality and personal demons to match. Through seven groundbreaking seasons, we follow his gripping story, along with those of his fellow crew. Provocative, profane, dramatic, humorous, and unflinchingly honest, it is an unforgettable journey of courage, conflict and ultimate salvation.
I loved this show when it was on the air, so getting to jump back into the series all at once is a big plus for me. If you’re into shows about our everyday heroes, you’ll love this how. Dennis Leary is amazing in this series. If you’ve already seen the show, I’m sure you know just how much of a treat this will be under the tree.

The Astronaut Wives Club: The Complete Series
Based on Lily Koppel’s book The Astronaut Wives Club: A True Story, this limited series tells the story of the women who were essential players behind big events in American history. As America’s astronauts were launched on death-defying missions, the lives of their young wives were transformed from military spouses to American royalty. As their celebrity rose, and tragedy began to touch their lives, they rallied together.
While The Astronaut Wives Club was a short series, it was a great one. I wish they would give us a movie special or something because it always felt unfinished to me. However I loved following the story of the women behind the men of the space program. This is a quick weekend binge series but one you’ll watch over and over again.

The heart-pounding second season of Knight Rider packs in even more thrills, more high-speed chases, and more full-throttle excitement with dynamic duo Michael Knight and K.I.T.T. in the action series that left all others in the dust.
I was a huge Knight Rider fan when I was a kid, I mean who wasn’t, right? Now that my kids are getting older we are introducing them to shows we loved from our childhood. This is a great show to introduce to teens. This is a classic that would be a great gift for any tv buff. You can purchase Knight Rider: The Complete Series online.
Good Times: The Complete Series

Tackling issues has never been so entertaining as it is here with the entire, three-season series presented uninterrupted on six DVDs.
I loved this series. It’s another football television show but this one deals with professional football and the stuff behind the scenes. It was another short lived series that I wished would have gone further but I promise it’s a winner. You can purchase Necessary Roughness: The Complete Series online.
