The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of November 7, 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.   Stephen Colbert’s Live Election Night Democracy’s Series Finale: Who’s Going To Clean Up This Sh*t? Tuesday at 11 p.m. on Showtime Why: We're all going to need a laugh after this dumpster fire of an election finally is extinguished. And who better than Stephen Colbert to entertain us? Colbert has gone all in on political humor since the Republican National Convention, when he broadcast live with an intense energy and spirit of fun that had been missing in his CBS show. It was a turning point for the program, which had suffered from flagging ratings and mediocre reviews from critics who loved his Comedy Central offering. Tuesday night, while CBS' news division covers the election results, Colbert will do his thing on premium cable (with the usual studio audience in the Ed Sullivan Theater). It'll be the perfect way to stay on top of new results without listening to the infuriating banter of barely coherent political pundits. Prepare to talk about: All the swearing and nudity (hey, it's Showtime); the NEW PRESIDENT; whether we'll be able to look each other in the eye after all of this nonsense.   Please Like Me (Season Premiere) Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. on (Australia's) ABC Why: Now 29, Josh Thomas launched this show when he was 25, based on his stand-up material. Considered by some to be Australia's answer to Girls , the smart and funny show looks at young people and their relationships — with friends, partners, and parents. It tackles serious topics like mental illness and sexual identity with warmth and wit. It can be honest and awkward, just like Lena Dunham's show. But its characters are much more likable (sorry, Hannah). And the tone is far more playful, although it never shies away from the ugliness of real life. Like many show creators, Thomas is not an extraordinary actor, but his work on the show is natural and winning. And he has surrounded himself with excellent performers, notably Debra Lawrance and David Roberts as his parents and Caitlin Stasey as ex-girlfriend Claire. Sadly, the collapse of Pivot means there's currently no U.S. broadcaster for Season 4, but the show begins airing in Australia this week. Prepare to talk about: Whether Arnold is the catch Josh seems to think he is; how Tom is actually a low-key fox.   Red Oaks (Season Premiere) Friday at 3 a.m. on Amazon Why: For a lot of people, Red Oaks is that vaguely retro-looking show they catch a glimpse of as they hunt for Transparent . But this Amazon series, produced by Steven Soderbergh, is worth checking out. It's a sweet and nostalgic look at a college kid's humorous struggle to figure out what he wants to do with his life. The backdrop is a suburban New Jersey country club, where humor and heartbreak abound. The second season picks up in the summer of 1986, when 21-year-old David Meyers and his crush Skye (Alexandra Socha) try to overcome relationship interference from his parents (Richard Kind and '80s icon Jennifer Grey) and hers (Paul Reiser and Gina Gershon). Season 2 newcomers include John Hodgman as a potential mentor for David. Prepare to talk about: Craig Roberts, Welshman; your five-year plan.   T.J. DeGroat is the editor of SideReel. He rocked the vote. Follow him on Twitter . p { text-align: justify; }

Weekend Binge Guide: November 2015

Have the weekend free? Going out is overrated! Binge-watch one of these shows instead:   If you want to laugh:     Red Oaks See all reviews for Red Oaks I wasn’t alive for the ‘80s, but this show feels pretty on point to me. Country clubs, legwarmers, drugs, alcohol, Bar Mitzvahs, homemade sex tapes… that’s all the ‘80s was, right? The MVP here is definitely Craig Roberts, as David, who grounds the show amidst a wacky cast of characters. The "Freaky Friday" episode, during which he swaps bodies with his dad (Richard Kind), reveals the extent of Roberts’s range and was without a doubt my favorite episode. Red Oaks is a quick, fun binge — all ten episodes of season 1 can be streamed via Amazon Prime.   If you want to cry:     The Leftovers See all reviews for The Leftovers Based on the novel by Tom Perrotta, who also produced and co-created the show, The Leftovers takes a bleaker outlook than its source material. After two percent of the world’s population vanishes in a Rapture-like event, the remaining survivors are left to deal with the fallout. Make no mistake, this is not a triumph of misfits banding together in the face of hardship. Some attempt, and ultimately fail, to understand The Departure, while others seek to move on and build a new way of life for themselves. Each character struggles in their own unique way, their flaws made increasingly obvious as the show goes on, resulting in an exquisite slice of the human experience that is as painful to watch as it is beautiful.   If you want to scream:     How to Get Away With Murder See all reviews for  How to Get Away With Murder People are just getting murdered left and right on this show and apparently no one is safe this season. They don’t shy away from the gore either; I didn’t think it was possible, but it seems like the murders are actually getting more gruesome. What will really make you scream however, is the idea that lawyers carry on this way in real life. In her spare time between cases, Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) runs around framing people for murder, orchestrating an increasingly complicated web of coverups, and occasionally visiting clubs and flirting inappropriately with her law students. Not exactly who I’d want representing me, but it makes for amazing television. The first season is available on Netflix.   If you want to think:     Sense8 See all reviews for  Sense8 Sense8 follows eight people across the world who begin to experience a telepathic connection to each other and sci-fi meets spirituality as the lines between self are blurred. The link between the characters starts gradually but eventually they can share thoughts, emotions, skills, and even project themselves into each others’ bodies, resulting in more than a few amazing fight sequences. This show has it all: it is funny, suspenseful, sexy, and thought-provoking. It’s another quick binge, only twelve episodes; you can watch the Wachowskis’ most recent creation in its entirety on Netflix. p { text-align: justify; }
