When we last saw friend-of-Uncrate Zane Lamprey, he was wrapping up season three of Drinking Made Easy. Unfortunately, that show is no more — but that doesn't mean Lamprey's days of drinking on camera are over. Chug ($25 and up) is a new, crowd-funded show that aims to send Zane aboard a train to different drinking destinations, learning about the culture, and getting to know the locals in the process. The initial goal will fund six episodes — one every week for six weeks — and if the ultimate goal is reached, they'll make a full twelve. As fans of both Drinking Made Easy and his prior show Three Sheets, we'll gladly drink to that.
Sure, season 3 isn't over yet — in fact, the second half just got started. But that doesn't mean it's too early to start thinking about adding it to your collection. The Walking Dead Season 3 Limited Edition Set ($TBA) is the premiere way to do so. The set includes a replica of The Governor's walker head aquariums, which can actually be filled with water, light up, and include five heads that can be arranged in any order you choose. Oh, and it'll also include every episode from season 3, and probably even some bonus content. Probably.
And here you thought HBO was the only place to find compelling, expletive-heavy dramas. As the first original Netflix series, House of Cards ($8/month) is receiving a lot of hype — but deservedly so. Based on a novel by Michael Dobbs and a subsequent BBC miniseries, this political drama stars Kevin Spacey — sporting a sweet, sweet Southern accent — as the most ruthless man in Congress, and Robin Wright as his equally cutthroat wife. Spacey is also an executive producer, as is David Fincher, who directed the first two episodes. What more do you need to know — all 13 episodes from the first season are available now, and you probably already pay for Netflix anyway — so go get to it.
