The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of May 29, 2017

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.   Still Star-Crossed (Series Premiere) Monday at 10 p.m. on ABC Why: It's a bit of a transitional time in Shondaland. Grey's Anatomy remains ABC's highest-rated drama, but The Catch was just canceled after an unsuccessful second-season reboot and Scandal is preparing for its final season (not a moment too soon, according to both fans and critics). Shonda Rhimes' latest project, Still Star-Crossed , is finally debuting a full year after it was ordered to series — not a great sign. Still, there may be something here. The story, basically about what happened in Verona after Romeo and Juliet died, is a juicy one (based on Melinda Taub's novel). Feuding families, bitter grudges, dangerous romance, the ever-present threat of war — there's a lot to work with. The diverse cast includes some exciting performers, including Anthony Head, Wade Briggs, Lashana Lynch, and Sterling Sulieman. And the sets and costumes are serious eye candy. With the complicated setup out of the way, we'll see whether future episodes can take advantage of the clever premise. Prepare to talk about: Why we still default to British-adjacent accents for these kinds of stories; Wade Briggs' previous eye-catching work in Please Like Me .   House of Cards (Season Premiere) Tuesday at 3 a.m. on Netflix Why: In the age of Obama, Netflix's soapy political thriller was an outrageous and exaggerated alternative reality, where bad people got away with murder, and we were living for it. But now? Watching House of Cards during the Trump administration is a different experience. It's gone from being borderline ridiculous to shockingly plausible. (You might say the show has been Trumped. Boom!) One thing that hasn't changed: it's still quite good. Season 5 begins with the Underwoods, still in campaign mode, carefully orchestrating the narrative around the terrorist group introduced last season. As promised, they are using fear to their advantage. Returning this season are Neve Campbell's LeAnn Harvey and Joel Kinnaman's Will Conway. Among the newcomers are Campbell Scott and the scene-stealing Patricia Clarkson. Prepare to talk about: How much longer we'll be interested in watching scripted D.C. drama; all the plot points that mirror real-world developments (like that travel ban); Michael Kelly's Doug Stamper, a solid contender for TV's most despicable character.   I'm Dying Up Here (Series Premiere) Sunday at 10 p.m. on Showtime Why: The network didn't have much luck with its previous effort to go behind the scenes of the entertainment biz in Roadies , but its latest drama could prove more successful. Produced by Jim Carrey and based on the 2010 book by William Knoedelseder, I'm Dying Up Here shines a spotlight on the celebrated '70s standup scene in Los Angeles, where the single goal for ambitious comics was to make it to Johnny Carson's couch. Melissa Leo plays Goldie, a badass comedy club owner whose tough love helps prepare comedians for the complex business of being professionally funny. Ari Graynor, an underrated talent, is fantastic as an ambitious comedian from Texas. Other standouts include Al Madrigal, Clark Duke, and Stephen Guarino. The first episode balances some pretty intense drama (including a first-half shocker) with the harsh-but-funny zingers you'd expect from a group of damaged comics. It's not perfect, but there's plenty of potential. Prepare to talk about: Jake Lacy, showing up in yet another prestige project; whether we need another show about comedians; whether Jim Carrey will wind up in front of the cameras if a second season comes his way.   T.J. DeGroat is the editor of SideReel. He's rooting for Ari Graynor. Follow him on Twitter . div.post p { text-align: justify; }
