This week we're kicking back and enjoying the second week of Rio 2016, complete with track and field action, at last. Other notable options for our TVs this week include Bound and Inversus on PS4, while AMC brings back Fear the Walking Dead Sunday night, and Netflix premieres a couple of documentaries with Fearless and I'll Sleep When I'm Dead. On Blu-ray, one of my favorite movies is finally available on Blu-ray in the US: The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. Look after the break to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
