Another week of quarantine and while we understand time drags by pretty slowly, it's okay to take at this as a boon to rest, recover and spend quality time with your loved ones. And think of all the choices we have when we decide to catch up on some shows or look at the newest ones releasing this week.  To help make your Wednesday's choices a lot simpler, we picked up five shows to watch today.

After an excruciating mission this week, the 'SEAL Team' may spill some chaos in the next episode. Titled 'Last Known Location', the episode seems to bring new tensions as the Bravo Team gets deployed for three months in Afghanistan.

In a new promo, Natalie Pierce (Emily Swallow) expresses her apprehensions about the distances cropping up between her and Jason Hayes. What's more, Ray Perry (Neil Brown Jr.) confronts Clay Spenser (Max Thieriot) about a harsh decision. The official summary of the episode reads, "Tensions flare on the home front, as Sonny faces disciplinary action, Clay considers a new career path and Jason faces pressure from Capt. Lindell to consider the next phase of his career, all while Bravo Team prepares for a three-month deployment in Afghanistan."

'Masked Singer' Season 3 (Fox)

The 'Masked Singer' is a weekly show in which celebrity contenders dressed head to toe in an elaborate costume, masking their identities completely, face off against each other in a singing competition. The show is hosted by Nick Cannon and the judges panel is chaired by Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong, Robin Thicke and Jenny McCarthy.

Before each performer heads to stage, there's a pre-recorded clue package that offers subtle hints to the identity of the 'masked' singer and post each performance the judges, studio audiences and the viewers at home are left guessing who the contestant could be. The contestant with the least amount of votes gets eliminated at the end of each episode and reveals his/her true identity before going home.

'Married at First Sight' (Lifetime)

Lifetime's 'Married At First Sight' is a treat to watch if you dig reality shows that deal with relationships and its many issues. It stars 5 couples - Jessica Studer-Austin Hurd, Taylor Dunklin-Brandon Reid, Michael Watson-Meka Jones, Derek Sherman-Katie Conrad, and Zach Justice-Mindy Shiben - who are married and are navigating the different facets to it.

While some have been successful in finding a balance, others are struggling to even be in the same room. In other news, the decision day is around the corner and the couples must take a call on whether or not they intend to spend the rest of their lives together.

'Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens' (Comedy Central)

Add some dose of comedy to your day with this one.

'Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens' Episode 10: Nora leaves home for a new life in China, while her father Wally and grandmother deal with her absence back home. Much to Wally's surprise, her grandmother begins to look after an injured pigeon. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, she has to head back to the US, and we finally see a glimmer of responsibility in her. This is the last episode of the season, so it remains to be seen what the next season brings.

'Little Fires Everywhere' (Hulu)

Episode 4 titled 'The Spider's Web' gifts us with Kerry Washington, who has us floored with her fiery takes as Mia Warner, throwing Elena Richardson's entitled, privileged racism right back at her face. Reese Witherspoon brings to the table her signature crazy white woman expertise and has fans talking about how there couldn't have been a better fit for Elena.

But amidst all that discourse on what it means to be a mother, the episode also has us intrigued with an ever so convoluted custody battle between the baby's birth mother and the adoptive mother who found the baby dumped next to a fire station. New episodes arrive on Wednesdays at midnight only on Hulu.
