Step into the troubled shoes of drug dealer Walter White for $12, escape into the wacky hijinks of the Griffins for just $10, or give thanks that you aren't John McClane when you grab the Die Hard series for under $20. Hey, worst case scenario, you can always throw on one of these shows to keep everyone quiet!
