The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of June 4, 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.   Dietland (Series Premiere) Monday at 9 pm on AMC Why: Dietland - an adaptation of a novel by Sari Walker for AMC - is definitely well-timed (as opposed to the poor Heathers over on Paramount, which will not be seeing the light of day...or night). The current #MeToo era seems to be the perfect time for the release of this dark female revenge comedy, about a woman who works at a fashion magazine who becomes involved with a secret organization that kill men accused of sexual assault and other misdeeds towards women. Joy Nash stars as Plum, an overweight woman - currently trying to lose weight for gastric bypass surgery - who works a tireless job as a ghostwriter for teen magazine editor Kitty Montgomery, played by Julianna Margulies, who gets her chance here at playing a thin, deranged magazine editor (see: Michelle Williams in the recent I Feel Pretty or the iconic Meryl Streep in Devil Wears Prada ). The series comes from Marti Noxon - who knows a thing or two about producing series with strong female characters. She is also behind UnReal and Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce , and worked on Buffy the Vampire Slayer earlier in her career. From the initial 2 episodes, it's unclear which path Plum is headed down, but we're excited to see where this show is headed. Prepare to talk about: This is quite a different role for Margulies here, who has to be having fun with it; how this show in some ways reminds us of Dexter ; that amazing beauty "closet".   The Fosters (Series Finale) Wednesday at 8:00 pm on Freeform Why: The excellent, groundbreaking The Fosters has been on a farewell tour with the season finale earlier this year (where most major storylines were already wrapped up) and now this 3 part series finale special event, where the Adams-Foster family will travel to Turks & Caicos for Brandon's (David Lambert) wedding, taking place one year after the events of the series finale that aired in March (which itself had jumped forward in time). Expect any final loose ends to be tied up, and an overall bittersweet farewell. The good news, is that while The Fosters is concluding its 5 season run, this special is also serving to set up its spinoff, entitled Good Trouble , which will focus on Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) and Callie's (Maia Mitchell) post-college, adult life in Los Angeles. This means that we don't have to say good-bye to all of these characters forever just yet, and we can likely expect appearances from some of the additional cast as well. Prepare to talk about: What a beautiful setting, and a nice way (we imagine) for the cast to be able to say farewell in real life as well; a new foster child!; watching child actors grow up.   Marvel's Cloak and Dagger (Series Premiere) Thursday at 8 pm on Freeform This is a big week for Freeform. One series dies (see above) and another, very different series is born. With Cloak and Dagger , we have the first new Marvel series since Runaways on Hulu, bringing the total number of Marvel series back up to 10 (on six channels), as we lost one when ABC canceled Inhumans , RIP. This series, as it airs on Freeform, also presents more youthful superheroes (like Runaways ). Cloak (Aubrey Joseph) and Dagger (Olivia Holt) are in high school. Except they aren't superheroes yet. The show is beginning with the characters nearly entirely separated, focusing on their origin stories, and it is moving somewhat slowly, so it may be awhile before we see them together and in full superhero action. In actuality, the two - one a homeless teen and the other a high school overachiever - are connected by a shared childhood trauma, but we will let you find out on your own what that was. The backstories are compelling, but we will have to wait to reserve judgment on the series as a whole until we see a few more episodes. Prepare to talk about: Seriously, how long until these two team up; if this series can avoid some of the tedium of Runaways (which started strong, but also moved too slowly); the awesome New Orleans setting.   Rachel is the product manager of SideReel, and she's wondering how many people watch every single Marvel show. Let her know! p { text-align: justify; }
