The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of February 29, 2016

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.

 

The Voice: S10E1

The Voice (Season Premiere)

Monday at 8:00pm on NBC

Why: America’s new favorite reality singing competition is back for its tenth season, and with it, the inimitable pop diva, Christina Aguilera as well as everyone’s favorite hat-sporting hip-hop king, Pharrell Williams. The outcomes of previous seasons have sometime infuriated us (me?), BUT, you know what, we keep coming back in the hopes that the next insane vocalist will be discovered as well as to laugh at the judges’ hilarious banter. Plus, you’ve got to have some sort of opinion to offer up at the office water cooler, right?!!

Prepare to talk about: Pharrell’s hats (probs?); Christina’s insane vocal chords; okay, probably the new contestants; Gwen and Blake being sickeningly cute as advising buddies; and most likely some 10th season celebration surprises, if I were to take a gander!

 

Suits: S5E16

Suits (Season Finale)

Wednesday at 10:00pm on USA Network

Why: Oh man, oh man, this season has been a DOOZY. Of course you should be tuning in to see what happens to our beloved Mike! We owe it to him to stand by his side in court to the bitter end and hope, with all our fingers and toes crossed, that everything works out. This finale is certain to offer up ALL the drama. So, just sit down, and buckle up for the ride, folks!

Prepare to talk about: Whatever the hell happens to Mike?!; just the state of everything in general tbh; Harvey being hot (but isn’t that always the most important topic at hand?); and when in the hell they’re gonna give us season 6!

 

I Am Cait: S2E1

I Am Cait (Season Premiere)

Sunday at 9:00pm on E!

Why: I Am Cait is back for its second season, and with it, Caitlyn Jenner is finally starting to come into her own. However you feel about Caitlyn, this is an important show, which raises important issues and questions that deserve to be discussed – and finally spotlighted on a mainstream channel. You should watch because it’s a reality show unlike any other reality show currently out there!

Prepare to talk about: Important issues surrounding transgender people and rights and more!; how Caitlyn is low key hotter than Kris Jenner (had to be said…); how this show is helping to pave way for a future for television which is far more representational of real life and real people.

Amazing. Your picks again are shows I and my colleagues never watch. Must be a generation thing, though I'd prefer to think of it as common sense.

Good job Nicolemk22! These 3 shows are by far the most important and topical shows on T.V. right now The morose solemnity of even one of these alone would be heavy enough to sink the titanic.
