Archer: The Com­plete Sea­son 4 [Fox, $29.98]

Adam Reed’s hit se­cret agent spoof toon—which last year won its sec­ond Critic’s Choice Award for Best An­i­mated Se­ries—is kick­ing off its highly an­tic­i­pated fifth sea­son this month on FX. In case you need a re­fresher course on the lat­est an­tics of su­per spy, ego­ist and sub­stance abuser Ster­ling Archer (voiced by H. Jon Ben­jamin) and the rest of the ISIS crew, this two-disc set will catch you up on all of 2013’s clas­si­fied adventures.

From the Ber­muda Tri­an­gle to the Vat­i­can, the team back­stabs and bun­gles its way through as­sas­si­na­tion plots, an ill-ad­vised mar­riage, an un­ex­pected preg­nancy and a very un­for­tu­nate snake bite. In ad­di­tion to the 13 episodes, both the DVD and Blu-ray ($39.99) sets prom­ise top-se­cret ex­tras like footage from the Archer Live! tour and “Fish­er­man’s Daugh­ter.” Gross in­com­pe­tence was never so hi­lar­i­ous. [Re­lease date: Jan­uary 7]
