The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of January 1, 2018

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 Bachelor (Season Premiere) Monday at 8 pm on ABC Why: Don't even try and pretend you hate The Bachelor , because everyone loves it. This show is just the sort of escapist fun that we crave after a rough 2017. This season's bachelor, Arie Luyendyk Jr., seems like a nice enough guy, whom any regular viewer of the franchise is already familiar with and rooting for, as he was the runner-up on Emily Maynard's season of The Bachelorette all the way back in 2012. He's got a real job (don't try and tell me that race-car driving isn't a real job compared to the occupations of so many other Bachelor contestants, but FYI he has also taken up real estate) and is a bit more mature (36!) with the graying hair to prove it. There's a wide age-range of women, but I am delighted to report that not *everyone* is in their early 20s, AND, many of the women also seem to be more accomplished than the standard Bachelor contestant (not to knock "twin" or "dog lover" or "Bachelor superfan" as occupations or anything). Like any good Bachelor season, we hear Arie falls in love with two women - unprecedented! We can't wait to watch him fall in love, at least for a few months. Prepare to talk about: So wait there's how many Laurens here?; and how many Beccas?; have you filled out your Bachelor bracket?   The Golden Globe Awards (Awards Show) Sunday at 8 pm EST on NBC Why: Any fan of awards shows knows that the Golden Globes are the fun ones. They still matter (unlike, say The People's Choice Awards , because contrary to what they tell you, our opinions really don't matter), but nobody takes them too seriously. That being said, this year might be a *little* more serious than your average Globes, with host Seth Meyers (who has really shined this past year with his biting political commentary) and a cloud of sexual harassment scandals hanging over the entire industry. In fact, many women have stated that they will wear black as a sign of support for sexual harassment victims, which was its own micro scandal , as everything is these days. So, am I saying to watch something that is usually fun, but will probably be less fun this go around? Yep! If nothing else, it will be interesting to see how these awards shows work in this new environment. What will they joke about? What will go unsaid? It's a very fine line to dance around, and I don't envy Seth Meyers one bit. And, aside from scandal, let us not forget that there are still talented actors and actresses and many others in the industry that have done great work this past year that *should* be honored. Check out all the nominees here . Prepare to talk about: Will they make Harvey Weinstein/Kevin Spacey jokes? (hope not; even the best intended joke that is at their expense will be sure to offend many); which actresses will wear black?; can this and should this still be fun?   The Chi (Series Premiere) Sunday at 10 pm on Showtime Why: There's already a show about white people in Chicago (the under the radar Easy on Netflix), so it's nice to be getting a show about Chicago from a different perspective. The Chi is an ensemble drama from Lena Waithe, the Emmy award winning writer from Master of None (her breakout episode was Season 2's "Thanksgiving"), who is black and grew up in Chicago's South Side. Waithe does not star in this show; it focuses on the stories of several young men, who are all connected to a street-corner murder which starts off the series. However, the show is not a crime show; it's about the impact of gun violence on a community. Waithe has commented that a lot of "foreigners" have written about Chicago, so she is excited to portray the city she grew up in and the people whom she feel have been overlooked. Though the series will air on Showtime, you can watch the pilot for free on YouTube . Prepare to talk about: Your favorite character; whether Waithe will appear in her own show eventually (she says she won't); if "the Chi" is something we can now call Chicago.   Rachel is the product manager of SideReel, and she will be happy with nearly anything winning a Golden Globe except "The Crown". div.post p { text-align: justify; }
