'WESTWORLD: SEASON 2.' New landscapes, new "people" as HBO's role-playing park adventure goes through its second-season subtitle: "The Door." From the Old West to modern Malibu to Shogun World and beyond, ultra-high-def 4K brings it all to pulsating life. And two hours of extras that dive deep —the ethics of Delos corporate science, the tech of staging violence, the settings that bolster storytelling, plus three actors' roundtables on plot and real-world ramifications. List price: $50 DVD / $55 Blu-ray / $65 4K+Blu (all formats: +digital), out this week from Warner.
'THE CROWN: SEASON 2.' Claire Foy nabbed an Emmy for her final appearances as Queen Elizabeth II (who "ages" next season into Olivia Colman of "Broadchurch"). Events of the 1950s and '60s introduce Michael C. Hall's John F. Kennedy, among other portrayals. Bonus features cover royal etiquette, the queen's companions, with Blu-ray probing scandals, more; $28 DVD / $38 Blu, Sony.
