The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of September 26, 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.   Marvel's Luke Cage (Series Premiere) Friday at 3 a.m. on Netflix Why: Mike Colter was excellent on Marvel's Jessica Jones , which introduced the crime-fighting fugitive with superhuman strength and unbreakable skin. He's even better on his own show, a similarly dark and complex comic adaptation that depicts a conflicted Cage before and after his Jessica Jones arc. That's not to say Luke Cage isn't fun. Cage is quick-witted and sly. And it's incredibly entertaining to watch Colter swat dudes like flies. But the timing of this release makes it an important show. As Harlem's hero, Cage is a black man with a black love interest fighting black villains. When he wants to fly under the radar, he puts on a hoodie. Bullets bouncing off a black man's hoodie in 2016 is a powerful visual. This will be the latest on Netflix's long list of watercooler shows. Prepare to talk about: Cottonmouth: not quite a Kilgrave, but pretty terrible; Misty Knight, whose bionic enhancement didn't make the transition from the comic book, but who gained another type of superpower.   Saturday Night Live (Season Premiere) Saturday at 11:30 p.m. on NBC Why: As is tradition, SNL begins its 42nd season with some uncertainty: Jay Pharoah, who played President Obama, and Taran Killam, among the cast's most talented performers, were let go, each with a year left on their contracts. (Why, Lorne? Why?) There are promising newbies, however: Mikey Day, previously a staff writer and a regular on this summer's Maya & Marty , Second City alum Alex Moffat, and Melissa Villaseñor. While they're all beautiful, special sparkleponies, Villaseñor's name garnered the most attention. You see, SNL still has a big old diversity problem. And Villaseñor has the dubious distinction of being the show's first Latina actress. Also making new recently is MVP Kate McKinnon, who returns after her Emmy win for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy. It was the show's first win in a major acting category. Margot Robbie, who is going to become a thing no matter what anyone wants, hosts this season's premiere with musical guest The Weeknd. Prepare to talk about: Who's playing Obama now; arguably the most important election sketches in SNL history; The Weeknd's new 'do.   Westworld (Series Premiere) Sunday at 9 p.m. on HBO Why: Game of Thrones can't last forever (especially if George R.R. Martin doesn't get his act together), so HBO is hoping to set up its next iconic series right now, with this sci-fi epic about a 21st-century robot uprising. From J.J. Abrams and Jonathan Nolan, starring Anthony Hopkins, James Marsden, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, and Jeffrey Wright, among others, Westworld has serious heat and seriously weighty expectations. The sex and violence have caused some concern ahead of the premiere, especially in light of the outrage GoT has prompted, but the story is fascinating, sophisticated, expansive, and timely. And the questions about consciousness and morality that the show asks the audience to contemplate are no joke. Prepare to talk about: HBO's big bet; the series’ fascinating mythology; whether Siri can be trusted.   T.J. DeGroat is the editor of SideReel. He knows Siri is up to something.

Margot Robbie to Host SNL Season Premiere

Margot Robbie is set to host the upcoming Saturday Night Live Season 42 premiere on October 1, when The Weeknd will return as musical guest. This year, SNL added new players Alex Moffat, Melissa Villaseor and Mikey Day to the cast. The trio effectively replaces Taran Killam , Jay Pharoah and Jon Rudnitsky. Wild N Out alum Day was actually a writer on the show, ironically penning plenty for Killam in the past. Fired fan-favorites and SNL veterans Killam and Pharoah leave big shoes to fill, though Rudnitsky was one-and-done as a featured act he struggled for camera time on the highly competitive program. Dont feel too badly for Killam and Pharoah, they both landed on their feet over at Showtime . ...Read More... //www.thewrap.com/snl-margot-robbie-saturday-night-live-weeknd-premiere/
