There are a number of TV shows I have never seen (or seen some random episodes) that I would love to catch up on. I just rarely have the time or dedication to break in a long-running show and start watching from scratch. But in 2 weeks, I'll be taking a trip to Europe involving several long flights and train rides, and it seems a perfect opportunity to throw a few seasons of a great show on to my iPad. The question is... which show?

Below is a list of shows I've never seen that I'd really like to watch and start in on. Which one should I take with me on the iPad and watch in the air?
