Note! In recent images of the cover of the Season 3 DVD, Prison Mike has been replaced with Regular Mike. Oh, well. 

As we’ve known for a while, September 4th will see the release of Season 3 of The Office on DVD (and Season 4 of Nip/Tuck, too! This will be a very expensive day!) .

BUT! But, but, but! Before you jump on over and get a sweet deal over at Amazon on a pre-order… read this!

Remember last year how Best Buy released the most massively thoughtful and fantastic DVD Gift Set ever? It included Seasons 1 and 2 as well as other Office odds and ends like a pen, post it pad, magnet and a cool little desk calendar with special Michael Scott notations. And it came in a super cool mini file box! The kind you would use on your last day when you got canned from your job and needed to take your desk plant and picture frame home. The Gift Set was thusly called, The Severance Package.

Beautiful. I love these people.

ANYWAY, according to Best Buy’s website, there is going to be a Limited Edition Gift Set for Season 3, too! No word on any specifics yet, but you best believe I’ll let you know as soon as I do. This is likely to be an in-store pick up item only, so just be sure that you get there ASAP on September 4th! I know I will!
