Best Ever TV Series Box Set Poll!!

I'm often a 'late adopter' of TV series.
I don't have any paid for TV, and am not good at fitting in with broadcast schedules or remembering/being organised enough to record stuff.
I managed not to watch The Sopranos until I was lent a complete box set, which me and the Mrs devoured in some epic concentrated binge watching.
I also came late to other great works such as The Wire and Breaking Bad.
Recently I've considered Game of Thrones as a possible box set purchase, never having watched an episode.
Which prompted me to ask the great AO community what they thought to be the best ever TV series available in or worthy of a box set!?

Thanks Keithy, I saw a bit of Buffy and wasn't that taken - maybe I should reappraise? Luther was great (not in The Wire's league though IMO)
Angel I will investigate...

Nothing messed up by you Keithy (suggestions much appreciated),
all down to my poll-posting incompetence

I couldn't pick a "best ever" boxset, some excellent ones that I can think of right now that I'd include in no particular order are:

The X-Files
The Wire
The Sopranos
Game OF Thrones
Star Trek: The Next Generation (49 disc DVD set )
Lost
Battlestar Galactica (2004)
Spooks

House of Cards

Which House of Cards? BBC and Francis Urquhart or Netflix's Kevin Spacey?

I prefer the BBC version.

Take your pick

Both great in my opinion, the BBC one was maybe too short to warrant a box set?
The Spacey USA version is a great box set, another one I came to late, but am now up to speed on

Preacher

Not sure if it qualifies for a box set, at 2 series?

I agree, it's almost impossible to pick a 'best ever', all of the poll options are definite contenders in my view (apart from maybe Game of Thrones, only because I haven't watched it yet).
If you twisted my arm I'd probably have to say The Sopranos.

Thanks for all the 'other' suggestions

WOW - Battlestar Galactica - amazing!

Politic/religious/sci-fi thriller - very addictive, prolly my favourite ever. Breaking Bad and Narcos were pretty good and just finished Ozark on netflix - excellent.

Another one of my faves would be Californication - well worth a watch!

I am too stupid to live! Voted for Game of Thrones instead of House of Cards. Please ignore that vote - I've never seen a single episode.
