What do you own all of?

What tv series do you own all of on DVD? Or at least, all that have been released so far? What series do you own a significant percentage of, and are still working on?

For myself, I have the complete:

The Kids In The Hall

Mr. Show

Futurama (including the 4 direct to DVD movies)

The Office (UK) (including the special)

Arrested Development

Weeds (so far)

Working on:

Southpark (I own nine of the first twelve seasons)

Trailer Park Boys (I own the original short movie {burned}, the first four seasons, plus the Christmas Special; though my sister currently has all of those discs at her house, plus she owns The Big Dirty)

Six Feet Under... a necessity since I got into it when A & E kinda sorta showed a few episodes of it. Enough to hook me on the entire series.

I have all the seasons thus far of Supernatural. The gag reels alone are worth the expense.

My SO has all of the Office (US) out on DVD so far. And Firefly.

I have all of Flight of the Conchords out on DVD so far. Which is just one season, but still.

From your list, I have all of Mr. Show & Futurama, including the movies.

A a lot of Adult Swim stuff:
Venture Brothers, all available so far
Home Movies
Aqua Teen Hunger Force

Family Guy
Sex & the City
Firefly (not that you can buy just part of it, since it's only one season anyway)
Invader Zim

I think I have more, but I can't think of them right now.

Working on:
Nip/Tuck (though I may not end up buying more, I have the first 3 seasons)

Would Like:
X-Files - I have none, so I'm holding out for the boxed set
Carnivale - which, for some reason, is particularly expensive
Torchwood - again, expensive

I have full sets of the following; some series haven't been fully released to DVD, so I just have what's been released.

Family Dog (complete on laserdisc)
Robotech (complete Legacy collection boxsets)
Exo-Squad (season 1)
Wonder Woman (complete)
Voltron (all of the lion series, and the two released land/sea/air team sets)
South of Nowhere (seasons 1 and 2)
Police Squad! (wow, a whopping 6 episodes)
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
The remastered Peanuts TV specials being released by Warner Bros.
This Is America, Charlie Brown (complete, single set)
Clerks Uncensored (like Police Squad!, this is just 6 episodes)
Weird Al Show (complete, single set)
Spawn (the first two volumes on laserdisc, the third on DVD)

I'm still trying to find an affordable season 3 set of Mutant X to finish that series off. Eventually, I'll probably pick up seasons 2-on for Dark Angel and The L Word to have complete sets, but I wasn't too taken with the first seasons of either, so they're low in priority.

I only own the entire Barney Miller, or whatever they have released. Eventually I will own all of it.

I have 5 seasons of X-Files, 3 of Third Rock, and oh, I do own all of the Star Trek & Star Wars movies if that helps.

Buffy and Angel if the canon comic continuations don't count, and Firefly.

And included because it's the only other TV series I own any seasons of, I also own five of the eight seasons of Scrubs.

Buffy and Firefly (not really difficult, that one).

I don't own "Serenity", however, so that might cancel out my Firefly answer.

Did they ever get past the first half of the second season of Gargoyles? If not then I have all that's been released (The first season and part of the second.)

Which is substantial considering my entire DVD collection consists of those two disks, and the 3 LOTR movies.

West Wing and The Tick. Both I saw more or less in their entirety on TV (meaning, I may have missed the occasional episode, but that's all). One I haven't been able to get through again, and one I watch over and over. I'll leave it to you to speculate which is which.

I can think of only one, and it's one that nobody else has mentioned: Avatar: The Last Airbender.

I recorded a full set of Cowboy Bebop from my Tivo to VHS a long time ago, but my only VCR is in a closet now...

Just Firefly (including Serenity). I also have one season of Buffy. Most of the series I would like to own tend to end up being syndicated so I tend to just tivo them rather than buy the DVDs.

Buffy, Angel. Firefly + Serenity. Arrested Development, even though I don't really like it that much. Coupling (UK). The Tick. I thought I had all of the Rockford Files but I see that Season 3 is out now. I think that's it. I stopped buying X-Files box sets after Season 4, but I'd like to get Season 5 at least, eventually.

For my mother's 60th birthday I got her all the seasons of 'Friends' available at that point: 1-7 I think.

I own all of Dead Like Me including the finale movie.

I also owned all of The Vicar of Dibley before my sleazy friend stole it.
Been trying to reassemble that one, but only have the first three seasons and a couple of specials.

I used to own all of House--but my computer crashed and I lost the first four seaons.
Ditto with Carnivale, Rome and Deadwood--lost to the stink of a power supply shorting out and burning up both hard drives.
