Which TV series will your friends (and the entire internet) be talking about this week? Stay informed—or at least be able to fake it—with SideReel's weekly guide to The Most Important Shows on TV.
Why: April's preparing for her hospitalization and aggressive chemo treatment, and there's obviously going to be some drama before she checks herself in.
Prepare to talk about: How April's handling her impending chemo treatment, and whether Sara, Beth, and Leo are kind of awful sometimes.
Why: People love Top Chef. People love Iron Chef. This is like a mashup of the two with its combination of head-to-head challenges and beloved (and hated) former TC contestants!
Prepare to talk about: Whether this show is really necessary when we already have Top Chef AND Top Chef: Masters, whether the food tastes better/worse than it looks, and which contestant is just the worst.
Why: The Outlander book series has a crazy rabid following, and the plot involves involuntary time travel, bodice ripping, and the Scottish Highlands.
Prepare to talk about: Whether it can compete with premium cable's other prestige fantasy dramas Penny Dreadful and Game of Thrones, how many people will want to have Outlander-themed costume parties this year, and how you've been inspired to plan a trip to Scotland.
