"Breaking Bad: The Complete Series Blu-ray" » AMC’s thoroughly addictive drug drama may have ended its run this year, but it lives on via this incredible collector’s set. Stuffed inside a mini replica money barrel are all five seasons of the show’s 62 episodes on 16 discs, along with more than 55 hours of special features, including a two-hour documentary that goes behind the scenes of the show’s stretch run. And be advised: If you weren’t completely pleased with the way meth kingpin Walter White (Bryan Cranston) went out, there’s even a three-minute alternate ending to the series finale. Available Nov. 26. ($201.29; amazon.com).

"Sons of Anarchy" hoodie » You don’t have to straddle a Hog, or be a hairy member of an outlaw motorcycle gang to rock this piece of cool apparel, featuring the infamous logo of the Grim Reaper wielding an M-16 with a bloody scythe blade and holding a crystal ball with the anarchy symbol. Made from very soft, premium lightweight fleece, it’s Charming indeed. And though we can’t guarantee it, we’re pretty sure that, as long as you’re wearing it, no one will mess with you. ($38.97. http://shop.fxnetworks.com).

"Game of Thrones" 4D Cityscape Puzzle Map of Westeros » Winter is coming, so why not hunker down inside and construct Westeros from the ground up? This massive puzzle features three different layers of more than 1,200 jigsaw pieces that, when put together, replicate the topographical landscape of the Seven Kingdoms, somewhat similar to that seen in the title sequence of the HBO show. Included are 3D replica models of the famous cities and castles, including King’s Landing, Winterfell, Eyrie, the Wall and more. ($79.98 plus $6.91 shipping; amazon.com).

"The Twilight Zone: The Complete Series" » Submitted for your approval: Every moment of Rod Serling’s groundbreaking sci-fi series in pristine high-definition. Yes, all 156 episodes are here, including "The Invader," "Living Doll," "The Eye of the Beholder," and "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet," in their strange, subversive and spellbinding glory. Even after all these years, "The Twilight Zone" remains television’s most beloved anthology series. This set offers devotees a chance to travel to another dimension of sight and sound again and again. ($119.99; amazon.com).

"Behind the Scenes at Downton Abbey" » With Season 4 of the beloved British soap looming just around the corner, this sumptuous companion book gives fans a chance to dive deeper into the juicy plots and insider tidbits. Written by journalist Emma Rowley, the tome’s 287 pages offers access to script planning, the music, props, sets and much more. Especially alluring: Gorgeous, glossy shots of all the period 1920s costumes. Even haughty ol’ Mr. Carson would approve. ($29.99; shoppbs.org).
