What's on your HDTV: 'Shadow of Mordor', 'Transformers', 'Homeland' and 'Krull'

As the fall TV premieres continue to roll (Did anyone watch Scorpion last week? Did anyone enjoy watching Scorpion last week?) we're looking forward to a few big Blu-ray releases. Sure, Michael Bay's latest fighting robot epic is hitting the shelves this week, but we're waiting for Krull, complete with pre-Taken Liam Neesons. It's also a big week for videogames, with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Forza Horizon 2 arriving. While The Strain wraps up its season on FX, we'll be welcoming back Homeland on Showtime Sunday night. Also, Gilmore Girls fans can look forward to the entire series on Netflix starting Wednesday morning. Hit the gallery or just look after the break to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
