Also in this week’s print TIME, I recommend the long-overdue complete series set of The State, which I worshipped on MTV when it started airing in the early ’90s.

Other blog topics, screeners to screen, and print-magazine work demand otherwise, but I’ll point you to Alan Sepinwall’s interview with David Wain (about, among other things, why the DVD took so long to come out). And I’ll let The State speak for itself (and hope that Viacom understands the YouTube embed for the greater purpose of praising this underrated show):
