ROSEANNE: THE COMPLETE SERIES Nine seasons and 222 episodes brought together on 27 discs. Say what you will about its star, but has any sitcom ever had two better second bananas than John Goodman and Laurie Metcalfe? Extras: cast and crew interviews, blooper and highlight reels. (Mill Creek Entertainment, $69.98)

BAND OF OUTSIDERS Jean-Luc Godard once described his 1964 film as “ ‘Alice in Wonderland’ meets Franz Kafka.” Anna Karina joins up with feckless crooks Claude Brasseur and Sami Frey to rob her aunt’s mansion. More important, they all dance “The Madison,” one of film’s great, off-the-cuff musical numbers. Extras: new digital master; interviews with Karina and cinematographer Raoul Coutard; excerpts from 1964 interview with Godard; trailer. (Criterion Collection, $39.98, Blu-ray, available now).

THE GREAT ESCAPE John Sturges’s World War II prison camp epic celebrates its 50th anniversary with a Blu-ray release that boasts more than three hours of bonus features. The cast includes Steve McQueen, James Garner, Richard Attenborough, Charles Bronson, and James Coburn. The real star, of course, is McQueen’s motorcycle. Extras: Sturges audio commentary; multiple documentary featurettes. (MGM, $19.99, available now)

UPSTREAM COLOR In his second feature Shane Carruth outdoes the mind-boggling, exquisitely constructed puzzles of his first, “Primer.” This cryptic thriller involves subcutaneous worms, decaying pig carcasses, cult-like behavior, and extensive quotations from Thoreau. The effect is exhilarating and seductive, as it evokes a mood in which solutions to its mysteries seem imminent, but remain elusive. (ERBP, $24.95; $29.95, Blu-ray, available now)

BEWARE OF MR. BAKER It’s almost half a century since his days as drummer for Cream made Ginger Baker a rock legend. Yet he remains a vivid presence on the music scene, as Jay Bulger’s 2012 debut documentary makes plain. (Vivendi Entertainment, $14.93)

30 ROCK: SEASON SEVEN Tina Fey’s TV-insider sitcom takes a final bow with these 13 episodes. Extras: audio commentary by Fey and actress Jane Krakowski, deleted scenes, “Donaghy Files” animated webisodes, season-finale retrospective. (Universal, $44.98, available now)
