'Louie: Season One'
Created by and starring Louis C.K., the FX series "Louie" is a brilliant comedic work, set right here on the streets of New York. Like a modern-day "Seinfeld," the show's awkward situations are situated between stand-up routines, and by the end of each episode, you'll have gotten a (sometimes disturbing) heartfelt message and a ton of laughs. I can't recommend this series enough. (DVD/Blu-ray combo, $39.99)
