The Key to Understanding Last Nights Mad Men Was an Episode From Season 1

  We yearn to travel the way a child travels, round and around and back home again, to a place where we know we are loved. Don told us everyone that in season one's "The Wheel," and it's one of the rare pitches that stands out as not totally a lie. Don't we all yearn to return to a place where we know we are loved? We've seen that teetering loop happen all season in Mad Men 's grand swan song: going back and redoing the things, reliving and reexperiencing our mistakes, our habits.   Read More... //

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 You can follow her musings on  Twitter .
