Has anyone here tried any of the Great Courses lecture series from The Teaching Company? I'm thinking about ordering some of them.

Are there any you think are particularly good? Some to avoid?

I've got some history and argumentation courses from them. I haven't really watched through them much yet, but what I've watched has been really, really good.
"We are half-hearted creatures,
fooling about with drink and sex and
ambition when infinite joy is offered us,
like an ignorant child who wants to go on
making mud pies in a slum because he
cannot imagine what is meant by the offer
of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily
pleased."—C.S. Lewis, "The Weight of Glory"
