The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of January 16, 2017

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.   Baskets (Season Premiere) Thursday at 10 p.m. on FX Why: Good question. After all, it's not an easy sell. Zach Galifianakis playing both a failed professional clown and his twin brother, opposite Louie Anderson as their Costco-loving mom (in a role originally conceived with British actress Brenda Blethyn in mind)? Perhaps only on FX could a show like this not only air, but succeed. Created by Galifianakis with Louis C.K. and showrunner Jonathan Krisel, the quirky comedy was one of 2016's most unique new shows, earning critical raves and even winning Anderson an Emmy. And Season 2 is just as wonderfully weird. It begins with the Baskets family left in the dark as Chip jumps on a train out of Bakersfield and joins a gang of ne'er do wells in search of a simpler life, only to find himself dragged right back into some serious drama. Prepare to talk about: "Emmy-winning actor Louie Anderson" (still sounds a little strange, eh?); Chip vs. the tin can.   Real Time with Bill Maher (Season Premiere) Friday at 10 p.m. on HBO Why: Bill Maher's weekly late-night show premiered in 2003, during a particularly divisive moment in the Bush administration's first term. From the hunt for weapons of mass destruction to the legalization of same-sex marriage, Maher has been on HBO for all of the most important political moments of the past 15 years. But perhaps no moment is more important — or bizarre — than this one. So it's fitting that his new season begins on Inauguration Day. Off the air since just after Election Day, the comedian will have a plethora of topics to riff on. Underqualified appointees? Got 'em! Conflicts of interest? Over here! Twitter tirade? Sure! But which one? Add a few outraged liberal guests, a gleeful conservative pundit, and a confused celebrity, and you've got a real time to remember. Prepare to talk about: Everyone who wants to repeal Obamacare but save the Affordable Care Act, a topic perfect for Maher to pick apart; how inspirational and fun the inauguration wasn't.   Beaches Saturday at 8 p.m. on Lifetime Why: Again, good question. Is this at all necessary? No. I mean, it truly is not. And yet, it exists. So once you make peace with that truth, it's kind of fun. There are really lovely, charming moments between Idina Menzel (in the Bette Midler role of CC) and Nia Long (as Hillary, originally played by Barbara Hershey), mostly when they are relaxed and playful. When the drama heats up and the actresses fight, things get pretty… Lifetimey. But, of course, that's also good fun for our inner snarkmonsters. As are the early adulthood scenes. It's always a hot mess when 45-year-olds play 25-year-olds. And then there's the music. There are several new songs and there's even a cute nod to Menzel's pre-Broadway days as a wedding singer on Long Island. But she also takes on two of the original film's biggies: "The Glory of Love" and "Wind Beneath My Wings." A lot can be forgiven once you've heard the Tony winner's take on that power ballad. Prepare to talk about: Which classic film the network should remake next; how much Lifetime should have pushed to get Cheno in the Hillary role.   T.J. DeGroat is the editor of SideReel. Yes, he does know that he's your hero. Follow him on Twitter . div.post p { text-align: justify; }

Bill Maher: Donald Trumps Adventures In Oppositeland

In the wake of the presidential election, Bill Maher says his big talking point for 2017 will be: Why do we need two Dakotas? Can we just start with that?
