Denis Leary
Orson Welles

(Entertainment Weekly) -- "Penguins," "Poison," and eight other things we recommend this week:

1. "March of the Penguins" C'mon! You really think the ML cares about a doc on some silly birds? What's that? Oh, it's nothing -- just something in our eye...

2. "Rescue Me" Boozing and brawling, Denis Leary's hard-bitten, guilt-ridden firefighter Tommy Gavin lurches into a second season of FX's bleakly gripping drama.

3. "Bewitched: The Complete First Season" Now on DVD: the supernal supernatural sitcom with the oh-so-beguiling Elizabeth Montgomery as the sweetly saucy sorceress.

Role Call: Will Ferrellexternal link

4. Dinosaur Jr. Reunited and touring this summer is the seminal '80s alt-rock band whose sound was less alternative and -- God bless 'em -- more rock.

5. 'Ice Haven" by Daniel Clowes Think ''Our Town'' meets ''Leopold and Loeb.'' Tales of loneliness and alienation as drawn by the creator of ''Ghost World.''

6. "What's Your Poison" by Kirven Blount EW contributor Blount turns vice into something enticing with his tidbit-laden compilation of alcohol and tobacco ads from the 1940s, '50s, and '60s -- preserved in all their toxic glossiness.

7. "Orson's Shadow" Austin Pendleton's philosophically meaty, fact-based play brings together Orson Welles and Laurence Olivier, a clash of creative titans in personal and artistic torment.

8. "30 Days" Reality TV with a bite: Morgan Spurlock's daring FX series thrusts participants into challenges as provocative as they are relevant.

9. Kevin Dillon in "Entourage" His wickedly self-effacing portrayal of C-lister Johnny ''Drama'' Chase is a hilarious portrait of hanger-on hell.

10. "Batman Begins" A rousing reinvention of the brooding superhero -- energized by the smart and kinetic vision of indie auteur Christopher Nolan.
