Emmy and Grammy award-winning comic's comic Louis C.K. is back and more uncomfortable than ever with his raunchy, self-deprecating brand of observational humor in his latest HBO special Oh My God ($5). Whether he's riffing on the absurdities of road rage, discussing the uncomfortable realities of dating, or relating the advantages of being overweight, bald, and in your 40s in his own version of "It Gets Better," you won't know whether to laugh or cringe (and chances are you'll do both). This new show was recorded live at the Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, is downloadable from his website, and features 12 additional minutes of footage never seen in the original edition.
With the series coming to an end in just a few short days, there's no better time than now to order Dexter: The Complete Series ($322). Revisit every moment with your favorite vigilante serial killer from seasons one through eight with this blu-ray collection. The collection includes 25 discs, with each of the seasons and an additional disk of bonus content, all packaged in a slide box inspired by Dexter's. It's perfect for storing away in the air conditioning unit in your apartment (so you can keep it from the prying eyes of roommates, significant others, or younger sisters who also happen to be homicide detectives).
Breaking Bad might be nearing its epic end, but this unparalleled series plans to live on way past the finale. The Breaking Bad Complete Series Set ($225) is housed inside a replica black barrel, just like the ones Mr. White prefers to stash and bury his millions in. The bounty includes all 62 episodes and over 55 hours of bonus features, spreading across all five seasons, an all new two hour documentary, a booklet with a letter from Vince Gilligan, and even a Los Pollos Hermanos apron that would make Gustavo Fring proud. A must have for any Breaking Bad junkie, that promises to disappear faster than a corpse in a bath tub full of hydrofluoric acid.
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.
