Two brothers lose their mother to an incurable disease. With the power of "alchemy", they use taboo knowledge to resurrect her. The process fails, and as a toll for using this type of alchemy, the older brother, Edward Elric loses his left leg while the younger brother, Alphonse Elric loses his entire body. To save his brother, Edward sacrifices his right arm and is able to affix his brother's soul to a suit of armor. With the help of a family friend, Edward receives metal limbs - "automail" - to replace his lost ones. With that, Edward vows to search for the Philosopher's Stone to return the brothers to their original bodies, even if it means becoming a "State Alchemist", one who uses his/her alchemy for the military.

A list where we get together and add in our favorite shows, shows that we just flat out adore. For me it's all things Aaron Sorkin but I'll start it off with his finest work so far, The West Wing. I would love it if you'd join me in adding in your favorite shows and if you can't choose just one then make a list and I'll add them in. :)

Not only is he a damn good writer but he always points me in the right direction re: tv shows (and books!). I'm a total anime noob but really want to try it, I just don't know where to start. So, his excellent article on which shows might suit all of us really has made me excited about watching the shows I've included below, with more to follow. I'm dipping my toes in the anime pool! Yay! tyvm, tvfanboy!
