What's on your HDTV: 'Gears', 'Mr. Robot' finale, 'The Carmichael Show'

This week we have the return of Gears of War, uprez'd and made prettier on the Xbox One. It's not the only big game release however, as the Dishonored and Mega Man are also getting re-released, and PS4 gamers should check out Until Dawn, even if they've never heard of it before. On Blu-ray, The Last Dragon is back with a special 30th anniversary edition, along with season five of The Walking Dead. Last but not least, on TV football season creeps ever closer, while comedian Rodney Carmichael debuts his new show on NBC, Falling Skies comes to an end and Mr. Robot wraps up its excellent first season. Netflix has a new series too, as Narcos debuts its look at Pablo Escobar this week. Look after the break to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
