The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of May 11, 2015

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.   Arrow (Season Finale) Wednesday at 8:00pm on The CW Why: His name is Oliver Queen! But what does that mean , especially since he's also Al Sah-him (yep)? We find out, [in CW announcer voice], this week on... Arrow . Prepare to talk about: Is Oliver the next Ra’s al Ghul (just go with it)? Is he going to marry Nyssa or will something awful befall them?! (Probably!) Will Starling City survive what's a-comin' for the lovely Mr. Queen? It's the season finale so shit's probably gonna go down!       Wayward Pines (Series Premiere) Thursday at 9:00pm on FOX Why: Because the oft-ridiculed M. Night Shyamalan desperately wanted to make a TV show, and the one he made looks like a hybrid of Twin Peaks and The X-Files , with an isolate town, missing FBI agents, and MYSTEEEERRRIOUUUUSSSS HAAAAPPENNNINGSSSS! Prepare to talk about: Matt Dillon: how well has he aged? Whether the show is too M. Night Shyamalan (aka WHAT'S THE TWIST?); whether Terrence Howard is better here or on Empire .     Mad Men (Series Finale) Sunday at 10:00pm on AMC Why: Because the existential tome of our time is ending for good, and Don Draper's probably gonna die. Or at least that's what everyone thinks. Don Draper's fate is almost irrelevant because this show has always really been about Peggy's journey. Peggy is bad. ass. We all want to be Peggy. Anyway, the point is, get ready to say goodbye to all your favorite sad sacks FOREVER. Prepare to talk about: Don's fate! Peggy's fate! Pete's fate! Roger's fate! How Harry Crane is just THE WORST, UGH, WHAT AN ASSHOLE.     Leah E. Friedman  is the editor of SideReel.com. You can follow her musings on  Twitter .

'Mad Men's' Peggy Olson is the coolest chick in the room: You've come a long way, baby

Move out of the way, Don Draper -- Peggy Olson is the person everyone wants to be on "Mad Men." On Sunday (May 3) night's episode of the AMC series, "Lost Horizon," Peggy finally achieved cool-girl status, which is quite an accomplishment when thinking about where she started on the series. Looking back to Season 1, Peggy was a timid secretary with lofty dreams who was constantly bogged down by the rules she thought everyone had to play by.Come Season 7, she's figured out who she is -- a fierce woman who knows what she wants -- and isn't afraid to rule the advertising world like she always knew she could. Specifically, she's a woman who can strut into her new office building while wearing sunglasses -- indoors! -- and letting a cigarette casually hang from her lips. (Cue all of the jealous gasps of desire.)RELATED: 2015 TV season finale calendar: 'Mad Men,' 'Scandal'... http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Zap2it/~3/NSbYnerwC24/mad_men_peggy_olson_cool_girl_transformation_photo-2015-05
