Most sites seem to be focused on streaming these days, so what are my best options for obtaining offline content? I'm in the U.S. Thanks!
I've been trying to find shows to watch streaming (Netflix US or Amazon Prime) that are interesting and entertaining without being cynical, negative, and/or over-the-top violent and gory, after realizing a lot of things I had been watching were pretty dark. Does anyone have any recommendations? [more inside]
I liked Luther. I liked Wire in the Blood. I like Criminal Minds. What else will i like? [more inside]
Recommend me some fun(-ish) fiction in which characters forcibly escort other characters from Point A to Point B, all the while developing some kind of relationship. Maybe it's a cop escorting an arrestee, maybe it's a US Marshal escorting a reluctant federal witness, maybe it's a bounty hunter escorting a bail jumper, maybe it's a truant officer scooping up a truant, or maybe it's something less official entirely.

I am trying to remember the name of a mystery series I ran across recently and my google-fu is failing. All I can remember about it is that it was a mystery series, it was available on DVD in the U.S. (my local library has copies), and there were multiple seasons. Can you help me figure out what it might be? [more inside]
I'm looking for series that were cancelled after 1 or 2 seasons but also managed to end with a satisfying conclusion. My husband and I like these while we fill in empty space waiting for the next season of Castle to be out on DVD. [more inside]
I'm looking for TV shows to watch that can best be described as "emotionally harrowing." Devastating, harrowing, deeply upsetting. There are episodes where I should feel stunned during the credits, feel simply emotionally drained. Extremely complex, raw nerve feelings to sort through. A sucker punch to the gut. You know the deal. I'm not fooling around, give me the awful feelings, straight and undiluted. PLEASE no spoilers or specifics. Feel free to explain, just be abstract and vague!
I really like the necklace that Lisa Kudrow's character wore on the season premiere of season 3 of Web Therapy (image inside). Where can I find something similar? [more inside]

Autumn/fall is my favorite season and I love the feel and experience of the leaves changing color, the chill in the air, and traditional fall activities. The episode "Kiss and Tell" from Gilmore Girls, for example, centers around an autumn festival and has this sort of atmosphere. Could you give me some movies/documentaries/tv shows/episodes that also embody autumn?
I once saw a show, which I remember as being from The Outer Limits, where two people discover that reality isn't as they thought. [more inside]
I'm looking for some excellent mellow and relaxing cartoon suggestions à la Hey Arnold! - See, i think that show is so damn chill with the nice smooth Jazz playing in the background, soft pleasant voices and oozy coolness - it's perfect for when I'm getting ready to sleep and trying to relax after a long day (I've been in a 90s-and-earlier-cartoons-at-bedtime mood as of late) . I can't stand how many cartoons these days ARE LOUD AS SHIT with constant random bells and whistles and noises and needless yelling and shouting and noisy irritation constantly going off. So I don't want those. I'd love suggestions of mostly uniformly quietish yet still entertaining (preferably older) cartoons...like Doug, or I just watched Top Cat and it was lovely as well because no jarring sudden noises! You get the idea... I very much appreciate your suggestions, folks!

My boyfriend and I are having a hard time coming up with movies to watch. Brainstorming based off of movies, directors, and genres we tend to like has gotten us nowhere, so I'd like to see what the hivemind can come up with based off a list of our recent favourite tv shows. [more inside]
I use an app on my iPhone and iPad called AppShopper to keep a list of iOS apps I'd like to buy. It tracks them and sends a push notification when their price changes (or when there's an update to the app). Is there another app like that out there that tracks movies, music and TV shows (and maybe apps) on the iTunes Store? If there's no app, is there a website that does this?

In-medium tributes: Can you think of instances where fans/players have died and been memorialized in some way in a show or game (if you can think of other forms where this has happened go right ahead)? Examples would be Leyla Harrison (X-Files) or Dak "Caylee" Krause (World of Warcraft).
