All of the new DVD releases hit stores (and Netflix) on Tuesdays. So each week in What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday, I sort through the best of the batch and tell you what to add to your queue. This week the new TV options are more exciting than the movies, so I'm making a few recommendations for shows to catch up on before Fall TV is here.
Gossip Girl: Season 2
Catch up on all the hot gossip with our favorite Upper East Siders with the second season of Gossip Girl. It's senior year, which means there's just as much scandal, romance, and heartbreak as the first season — plus a few new faces added to the mix.
Personal highlights include Jenny's brief stint as a runaway emo chick, Serena's short-lived relationship with a lame artist, and Chuck and Blair's never-ending, sexy roller coaster of emotions. Season three premieres on Sept. 14, so you've got a month to catch up on all the fun or just give yourself a refresher course. Special DVD features include a gag reel and unaired scenes.
Two more new series on DVD, so
If high school drama isn't your thing, try something a little more serious with season three of Dexter. Michael C. Hall returns as the mysterious forensics expert by day/serial killer by night in the thriller that always keeps us on our toes. It's not for the faint of heart, but the constant moral dilemma makes it easy to get sucked into Dexter's world. Season four of this Showtime show premieres Sept. 27, so you've got some time to catch up before Dexter is back and hunting down John Lithgow. I've got goosebumps already.
Greek: Chapter Three
Re-live your college days with the third season (excuse me, chapter) of my beloved Greek. The gang is back together for senior year, though a lot has changed at Cyprus Rhodes over the Summer. There are love triangles for both of the Cartwright sibs, while Cappie and Evan find themselves getting closer than expected. The new season premieres on Aug. 31, so grab a keg cup and get watching.
