The State: The Complete Series has been out for a while, but it’s still one of my favorites. The mid-’90s MTV sketch comedy series is complete in one DVD set. Some of the sketches may not be as funny as you remember them, but most stand the test of time, and fans of the show will enjoy repeat viewings.

Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles is a documentary about a 30-year-old mystery in Philadelphia. Who’s been leaving messages embedded in the streets and sidewalks of Philadelphia, and what’s he trying to tell us? The movie follows three amateur detectives and tile enthusiasts as they scour newspaper articles and interview local residents in search of the answer. Like a real Crying of Lot 49 or DaVinci Code, with a very satisfying ending.
