Best New Shows of the 2017-18 Season

The end of the year is a great time to take stock of where we are.  Today, I’m letting you know my top new shows of the Fall television season. These shows are weekly installment shows (distinguished from “binge” shows where an entire season is made available at once a la Netflix or Hulu). Why differentiate?  Because, at least for me anyway, I watch “binge” shows very differently from weeklies and the characteristics and criteria for what makes them great isn’t necessarily the same in the two categories.

Anyhoo, read on and let me know what you think.  There are a couple of “obvious” choices here that you’ll see on other critics lists.  There are several that I am sure you will not.  But, hey, I’m me and this is my world so step inside my thinking a bit.  Leave your thoughts and choices in the comments.  I love discussing TV and why you think something is great … or not.

What To Watch – Monday, December 11, 2017

Wow, Mondays fell apart fast. I feel like we went from having too much to watch to now, cobbling together a night.  With Supergirl and The Good Doctor on their winter rests, thank the maker we still have The Gifted and Robert Kirkman’s Secret History of Comics to keep us company. Unfortunately, both of those are hitting their finales tonight as well (mid-season for The Gifted, season for Kirkman).  Also, Scorpion (which hopefully is resolving the Cabe storyline tonight, yeesh), football, and people trying to National Lampoon Christmas their house. Idiots.
