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. Aside from the movies I'm highlighting below, Important Things With Demetri Martin: Season 1, Crank 2: High Voltage, and Fringe: Season 1.
The Office: Season 5
This season of The Office was great as usual; The Michael Scott Paper Company fails to get off the ground, but watching Pam, Michael, and Ryan try to work together and then eventually end up back at Dunder Mifflin is predictably hilarious.
Jim and Pam spend the season happy and engaged, Toby comes back, and the love triangle between Angela, Dwight and Andy is finally settled. Catch up before the big wedding in a couple weeks!

Parks and Recreation: Season 1
If you didn't give Parks and Recreation a fair shake in its first season, now's as good a time as any to watch the DVDs before the second season starts.
Amy Poehler's comedy had an uneven, but generally good first season. I was mostly chuckling throughout — blame the awesome supporting cast, like Aziz Ansari, Paul Schneider, Chris Pratt and Rashida Jones, and the show's Office-like humor.
Sure, this Wayans Brothers flick looks pretty dumb, but isn't that the point? I've got to admit that I love most dance movies, so I might not mind seeing them spoofed.
If you said you wouldn't see it in the theater when it came out but might rent it, here's your chance.
