The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of February 15, 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.   Broad City (Season Premiere) Wednesday at 10:00pm on Comedy Central Why: Your two favorite single, Jewish gal pals are back! No but furreal Abbi and Illana are going to be back with their same old crazy antics, so of course you’re going to want to tune in if you’re at all interested in laughter…and, like, partaking in it. That sort of thing. Basically, people love these hilarious ladies because they’re real, they’re funny, they’re fuck-ups, and they’re in New York City. I mean, what’s not to love? There’s your why! Prepare to talk about: Ilana’s crazy antics; more failed romantic encounters; questioning if the girls will ever grow up (jokes); and perhaps establishing a drinking game based on how much pot they smoke? Just an idea…   Girls (Season Premiere) Sunday at 10:00pm on HBO Why: The friends and frenemies, Miss Hannah Horvath being superfluously naked (like all the time), and that painful awkwardness about the show that you just can’t help watching: it’s back. It’s ALL back, folks! The penultimate season of the show you kind of hate but also kind of love and most definitely love to hate. And so many questions to be answered. What of Hannah and Adam? Will Shoshanna be able to hack it in Japan? Is Marnie legit going to get married, or what? Basically, it’s going to be a rollercoaster, no matter how you look at it. Prepare to talk about: Hannah being naked a lot; Shosh hacking it in Japan; Jess trying to find a job? Keep a job? That might be pushing it…; and then, I’ll just say it, do these girls even like one another? No I mean genuinely, do they actually want to be friends? Discuss!   Downton Abbey (Series Finale) Sunday at 9:00pm on PBS Why: It’s the final episode of the FINAL season. The beloved British historical drama is officially coming to a close, and isn’t it up to us to see it through to its end? I meannnn we’ll finally get to see all the romantic tangles get…untangled? Will Mary reconsider Harry? What on earth is Edith gonna do about the proposal? Will the show honor the deaths of the beloved characters who came before? Basically you should watch because this is the last episode ever of Downton and that should be reason enough! Prepare to talk about: Um the show ending and how sad you are about it? Duh; also who ends up with whom; probably more people dying? (I mean, it wouldn’t be out of the question); oh and why the UK got to watch this before us (like wayyyyy before…)?!     Nicole attends Georgetown university and is currently interning for p { text-align: justify; }

Downton Abbeys Laura Carmichael on Why Lady Edith Is a Lot Like Peggy Olson and Which Scenes Are the Most Boring to Shoot

  Lady Edith Crawley (Laura Carmichael), though born into a highly-respected aristocratic family, has had anything but an easy life so tumultuous, in fact, that Poor Edith became a common phrase during Downton Abbeys six-season run. Between being constantly overshadowed by her more assertive sisters, three crushed romances, and bearing an illegitimate daughter, she has rarely achieved contentment or stability like the rest of the Crawleys. But Edith finally hit her stride this season, much to the the delight of everyone around her (sans Mary, of course). Shes an adept editor for her magazine, The Sketch, has a chipper new beau, Bertie, who clearly loves her, and is eschewing the stuffy constraints of Downton in favor of a modern and metropolitan life in London. Her future, it appears, is looking quite bright. Vulture spoke with Carmichael about Ediths evolution, how shes a lot like Peggy Olson, and the special game the cast plays to keep themselves occupied in-between takes.   Read More... //
