    We're only a week into the Ultra HD Blu-ray era and we already have our first day-and-date release, as The Peanuts Movie is coming home in 4K. Still, my nostalgia is piqued by the release of *batteries not included on Blu-ray for the first time, while Tom Clancy's The Division highlights this week's videogame releases along with a new Hitman.

    This week Netflix premieres two new series, as The Characters allows comedians to feature themselves for one episode only, and Will Arnett steps out from the shadow of Bojack in Flaked. Amazon also has a streaming premiere with season two of Bosch, and The Carmichael Show is back for another run on NBC. Still, the guilty pleasure add this week goes to Howard the Duck or Xanadu on Blu-ray. Look after the break to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
