    New releases: ‘Breaking Bad: The Complete Series’

    Adopt Films

    BREAKING BAD: THE COMPLETE SERIES Take one chemistry teacher named Walter White. Give him some very bad medical news. Add a crystal-meth lab. Watch what happens over the course of 62 episodes. Extras: 50 hours’ worth on DVD, and 55 hours on Blu-ray. (Sony, $160.99; Blu-ray, $230.99)

    SON OF GOD Christ has been mostly absent from the big screen since Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ,” but the popularity of the 2013 History Channel miniseries “The Bible” seemed worth cashing in. So the best Jesus bits were condensed into a feature. Though occasionally moving, this version of the greatest story ever told proves bland and uninspired. Extras: making-of featurette. (20th Century Fox, $29.98; Blu-ray, $39.99)

    PLIMPTON! STARRING GEORGE PLIMPTON AS HIMSELF Ten years after his death, the celebrated bon vivant and participatory journalist (“Paper Lion”) remains as interesting as ever — and a terrific documentary subject. With all his semi-comic attempts at being an NFL quarterback or NHL goalie, who knew that Plimpton had such a talent for an equally rarefied occupation: movie star. (Echo Bridge Home Entertainment, $9.99)


    TRUE BLOOD: THE COMPLETE SIXTH SEASON Orange may or may not be the new black, but red is still definitely red on HBO’s vampire series. Extras: mini-featurettes on each of the 10 episodes, cast and crew commentaries. (HBO Home Video, $59.98; Blu-ray, $79.98)

    HARRY DEAN STANTON: PARTLY FICTION Faced with a subject — laconic/iconic character actor Harry Dean Stanton — who’s not so much resistant as beyond her reach, director Sophie Huber does the sensible thing: She goes to the clips, talks to creative accomplices, and just lets the man sing. It adds up to an unexpectedly moving portrait of a maverick at twilight. (Adopt Films, $29.95)

    RAWHIDE: THE EIGHTH AND FINAL SEASON Before Clint Eastwood became the Man With No Name, he was cattle drover Rowdy Yates. By this concluding season, Rowdy has moved up from ramrod to trail boss. Either way, he still gets to listen to Frankie Laine open each episode with that classic theme song. Guest stars include Rip Torn and Charles Bronson. (Paramount, $39.98)
