March Madness is in full swing and even if you're not a college hoops fan, that should extend to the rest of the TV schedule this week. After a surprisingly exciting season finale for The Walking Dead AMC is finally ready to bring back Mad Men. Also returning are favorites like Fringe and Mythbusters, although they're balanced out by Archer's third season coming to an end. HBO's Luck also airs its final episode this week and makes the most notorious exit of them all, alongside season finales from The River, Southland and Key & Peele. Look below for the highlights this week, followed after the break by our weekly listing of what to look out for in TV, Blu-ray and videogames.

Battle Royale
This cult favorite is finally getting a US Blu-ray release, offering the tale of Japanese teenagers trapped on an island and forced to fight each other in a game where only one will survive. It's kind of a bizarre story if you're not familiar with it, but well worth watching. Fans can nab either the first flick by itself or a pack including the sequel along with plenty of extras. Check out a preview trailer embedded after the break.

Mad Men
After the longest of hiatuses, Mad Men is triumphantly returning to AMC. With its cast and director intact we don't expect the sordid tales of advertising execs and those who love them to have lost a step, but true fans have probably had this day marked on the calendar for a while.

Hey, everyone's favorite universe / time shifting sci-fi show is back. We've completely forgotten where Pacey is at this point but as usual, the team of agents and scientists will be investigating some weirdness like they always do.
