What's on your HDTV: 'Mr. Robot,' 'Vice Principals'

If you missed the sneak preview last night (or even if you didn’t, since it’s a double episode), then get ready for the season premiere of the surprisingly realistic Mr. Robot on Wednesday night. This weekend HBO brings back Danny McBride (Eastbound & Down) for a new series, Vice Principals. On Blu-ray the entire Divergent trilogy is here in 4K, while gamers can enjoy Kerbal Space Program and Adr1ft on the PS4, or the Kinect-enabled Fru on Xbox One.

Netflix is premiering a few movies this week with Gridlocked, Rebirth and Rolling Papers, plus a new Tony Robbins special and the first season of Stranger Things, as Hulu kicks off a new season of Difficult People. Look after the break to check out each day’s highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
