What to Netflix: New DVD Tuesday

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.

Weeds: Season 3
I added the third season of the hit Showtime series Weeds to my must-haves for June because it's a must-watch before the fourth season starts up this month. This is a series I love to own because I want to watch the lovely Mary-Louise Parker and gang whenever I get the urge.

As I said in my must-haves post, the seasons prior to this one always balanced dark elements with high comedy but this third go-around is mostly dark. New faces in the cast this third season include Matthew Modine playing a real estate mogul and Mary-Kate Olsen as the religious (yet still tokey) girlfriend of Nancy's (Parker) son Silas. Even Carrie Fisher pops up — but that's all I'll say, so as not to spoil the fun.

Special features include eight commentary tracks, the full set of Good Morning Agrestic videos, and a sampler of the show's soundtrack.

Two more new titles — one TV, one movie — up next. So


I saw Semi-Pro when it first came out and had to admit that while the old Ferrell '70s shtick is getting old, I still buckled over in laughter during some parts. Instead of playing up the inflated ego of an anchorman, ice skater, or race car driver, this time Ferrell tackles the role of basketball player/manager. He sports an afro and his jiggly white skin is shoved into a teeny-tiny uniform for a good portion of the film.

It's not the best thing around, but definitely a crowd pleaser if you need something to flip on the tube with a group of friends. Special features include: Improv; "Love me sexy" — The Story Behind the One-Hit Wonder; Re-creating the American Basketball Association; 4 days in Flint; and The Man Behind Semi-Pro.

Rescue Me: Season 4
First of all, creepy cover, right? Fans of the critically acclaimed FX series starring Denis Leary can rejoice at the release of this exciting season on DVD. I've only paid passing attention to this show (it can be really intense!) but I have a secret soft spot for Leary, and the show's premise is compelling.

This is how Netflix summarizes the fourth season: "Haunted by the loss of friends who perished in the disaster, his failed marriage and his son's tragic death, Gavin grapples with his past, his future and his sanity."

Like I said: intense.

Special features include six featurettes, 22 deleted scenes, and a gag reel.

I missed the last few episodes of Weeds this season, so I can't wait for them to arrive through Netflix :). Will be a good distraction from all the BAD summer tv.

I am going to run out and get Rescue Me! I am addicted to that show, it is SO good! I am so sad that it is not going to be on this summer and i have to wait until next year, but at least a recap of last season and seeing Franco will help me through!
