Sounds like one I'll want to check out.

I loved THE KAMINSKY METHOD on NF, with Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin. So glad it's coming back for a second season.

I also love CALL MY AGENT, a French show about Paris's number one talent agency, with a real life movie star guest-starring in each ep (Monica Bellucci, Cecile de France, Isabelle Huppert, etc.). The actors are all amazing.

I thought WORKING MOMS was really good on NF too, and thankfully not all about kids. When I saw the creator was a Reitman, I knew I was in good hands.

I liked CATASTROPHE for a while on Prime.

You can never go wrong with FRASIER. Still one of the funniest shows ever made.

If you've never seen THE WEST WING, it's on NF. Sorkin at his best.

And the list goes on.

oooh, it's really good. I love the characters. It's a great series. I may even watch both seasons all over again, it's THAT good.

Others I liked:
IO (this is remarkable as it basically has 2 characters and is terrific)
Another Life
Haunting of Hill House (if you like horror)
The Rain
Dead to Me
The Umbrella Academy
How It Ends
Dear White People
Dark (really good foreign TV)
Patriot Act
Ascension (really great concept)

Haven't seen the A-List but it looks good as well as The Sinner.

I somehow got sucked into Canadian TV and currently watching a show that is already more progressive than 99% of American shows...

Undone, on Amazon. It's about a young woman who may or may not be schizophrenic and she gets visits from her dead father who died under mysterious circumstances - her goal is to go back in time and change things. It's animated like Waking Life (same general people... Tommy Palotta was involved.)

Dead to Me on Netflix, I think? A woman whose husband died in a hit and run makes a new friend at a grief counseling thing...

Both of those shows really stuck with me.

Other really good shows I've enjoyed this year, in no particular order:
Crashing - HBO. Comedy.
Mrs. Maizel - Amazon. Comedy.
Lodge 49 - AMC. Comedy
White Princess and White Queen - Starz
Seis Manos - Netflix
From Dusk til Dawn - El Rey

Networky kind of stuff:
AP Bio - NBC
Everything on CW: Jane the Virgin, Charmed, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Supergirl...

I would like to add two shows, both found on Netflix:

EPISODES (starring Matt LeBlanc): Surprising good (and I'm not a LeBlanc fan). It's shows the frustrations of a set of t.v. writers who have to debase their work (and themselves) to work with a (former) mega-star like Matt (who actually plays himself with a few funny pokes at Friends). Two thumbs up.

GOOD GIRLS (starring Christina Hendricks): A show about three housewives who feel constrained in their current situations. A medical emergency causes them to turn to a life of crime to find the much needed money. Mayhem ensues when they take money from the wrong people!
