Want to play a game?

Ah, the ’80s, a time when we listened to music on Walkmans, people drove themselves crazy trying to solve the Rubik’s Cube and top computers were the size of a farm shed. Travel back to yesteryear with 1983’s “War Games,” which, despite its being set in what now seems like the Ice Age, holds up remarkably well. 6:30 p.m. Cinemax

Que sera sera

On a new episode of “The Bachelorette,” the suitors head to the south of France, where Andi Dorfman gets the pleasure of being wooed by a sailboat cruise and the pain of watching the competitors try to impress her with what they’ve learned at mime school. Ben Fields stops by to perform his new song “Extraordinary Light.” 7 p.m. KSTP, Ch. 5


I love the unpredictable nature of “Louie,” including the sentimental 90-minute flashback episode last week. But even I was thrown by the incident earlier this month in which he appears to be trying to rape a potential girlfriend. Was it supposed to rattle us? If so, mission accomplished. The story line with the woman, played by the marvelous Pamela Adlon, picks up in this season finale. 9 p.m. FX
