What's on TV: 'X-Men' and 'Pacific Rim' 4K, 'The 13th,' 'Arrow'

Hopefully even a brief Netflix outage didn't stop your Luke Cage binge or get in the way of catching the HBO premiere of Westworld, but this week the focus is on Blu-ray. A slew of Ultra HD Blu-ray releases are here including X-Men: Apocalypse, X-Men: First Class and The Great Gatsby. I'm actually most excited about seeing Pacific Rim on UHD Blu-ray, so I can compare it to the Dolby Vision HDR stream available from Vudu (and of course, bask in the glory of robots punching giant monsters).

For Prince fans, Purple Rain, Graffiti Bridge and Under the Cherry Moon are all being released on Blu-ray this week, while filmmaker Ava Duvernay takes a look at how our prison system has developed with her Netflix documentary The 13th. On TV, Scorpion is back, in case you thought Mr. Robot's hacking scenes were just too accurate, while CW has premieres of The Flash and Arrow as well as its new time travel-ish show Frequency.

Finally, on HBO it's time for the premiere episode of a new series from YouTube star Issa Rae (Awkward Black Girl) called Insecure, but HBO subscribers can actually watch it early here. Look after the break to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
