With so many different streaming platforms and cable deals to browse through, choosing what to watch has never been harder. To make it easier for you, here are our top tune-up tips for the week ahead.

    MONDAY

    The single person

    The 27th season of “The Bachelor” kicks off tonight and this year’s rose distributor is 26-year-old Zach Shallcross. The technical manager from Anaheim Hills, Calif., finished third in his attempts to woo Rachel Recchia last season. Do people still care about this show? I guess saying anything else would be blasphemy for “Bachelor Nation,” but this show is in serious need of a retool. Especially in light of Netflix entering the love wars with “The Perfect Match” next month.

    Extraordinary

    In a world where everyone over the age of 18 has a superpower, 25-year-old Jen has been left out. The protagonist, played by Irish actor Mairead Tyers (“Belfast”), is joined by a cast of fairly new faces. Jen, stuck in a dead-end job at a party store, finds some solace for her lack of abilities by reaching out to her best friend Carrie (who is lucky enough to be able to channel the dead).

The show is the brainchild of the filmmaker of “Knives Out” Rian Johnson, his first television series.

    Kenya Barris’ (written with Jonah Hill, who also stars in the romantic comedy) film debut is a new age “Meet the Parents.” Hill plays Ezra Cohen, a lovable idiot who accidentally gets into Amira Mohammed’s (Lauren London) car. The pair instantly and unexpectedly bond over their love of sneakers and quickly realize their awkward introduction was always meant to be. Then it’s time for the parents to meet and that’s where the star power in this new Netflix movie really shines. Ezra’s progressive, semi-awakened parents (Julia Louis-Dreyfus and David Duchovny) and Amira’s inflexible but concerned parents (Eddie Murphy and Nia Long), make it a must-have, even if only for the cast.
