I thought Global Warming, Global Threat was probably the best overview of the climate change issue I've ever encountered. I also really liked James Kaler's two sets of lectures on Astronomy (Earth, Sky and Planets and Stars, Galaxies, and the Universe) and Terence D'Altoy's Incas: Inside an American Empire
As with any large set of works by different authors on different topics there are some duds, but overall I think they're good quality. All the ones I've listened to have exactly 14 lectures and run for a similar length of time. On occasion, I think forcing this structure leads to either padding or to cutting an interesting topic short.
fleela, thanks for the tip on A History of the English Language. Drout's lectures on fantasy literature were good and he was an engaging (and likable) presenter. I didn't know about the language one.
