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. This week, the most exciting options in DVD releases are TV shows, from the third season of "Desperate Housewives," to Season 2 of "Prison Break" to, if you're so inclined, the whole short-lived series of "The Black Donnellys." What follows, however, are the three DVD releases I'm most thrilled to add to my collection today.

"30 Rock" — Season 1
Tina Fey's half-hour sitcom in which she stars as a writer for an "SNL"-type late-night sketch show took some time to find its footing, but once it did, I was totally hooked. Fey's particular brand of dark, quirky humor works well when presented by such a hilarious cast which includes Alec Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Jane Krakowski and Jack McBrayer, and many priceless guest stars like Emily Mortimer, Isabella Rossalini and Sean Hayes.

The DVD set of this first season includes some cool-looking special features, like a blooper reel, behind-the-scenes featurettes, commentary by various cast members (including Fey and Baldwin), and something called "An Evening With Kenneth" in which Kenneth the Page (Jack McBrayer) does a talk show-type thing with certain characters.

Two more series on DVD today, so

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" — Seasons 1 & 2
There's so much absurd, cringe-worthy humor to enjoy in this show centering around a group of characters who will basically never win, no matter what they do. But it sure is fun to watch them try. Netflix has an apt description of the show: "Irreverence is the cocktail of the day for three slacker friends who own an Irish pub in the city of brotherly love. Despite the changing sociopolitical landscape, egocentric trio Mac, Dennis and Charlie cling to their blue-collar, macho attitudes in this sharp-edged comedy series that sends up racism, gun control and other taboo topics." This DVD set (which is one of my September must-haves!) includes both seasons 1 and 2 of the FX series, along with some special features like outtakes, scenes from the original pilot and a making-of featurette.

"The Office" — Season 3
I know there are plenty of "Office" fans out there who were probably as delighted as I was by this past season of the show. We got more Michael Scott ineptitude, some interesting developments with Jan, more Jim vs. Dwight shenanigans and plenty more "Jam" drama. Extra features include audio commentaries by various cast members (Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Rashida Jones, Ed Helms, BJ Novack, etc.), a blooper reel, deleted scenes, videos from the "Make Your Own Promo" contest and the awesomely titled "Dwight Schrute Music Video."

BeautyXRush -- The one new movie release coming out today that I would recommend is The Wind That Shakes the Barley starring Cillian Murphy. As of today you can also rent Georgia Rule and/or Disney Princess Enchanted Tales. So, there's that.
