NOTE: Please read, especially if you're heading to the comments section to complain that something is missing!

We wrote only about shows we could screen at least one episode of. Will & Grace, Star Trek: Discovery, Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, and Mindhunter were a few of the shows that didn’t have screeners available in time for consideration. We wrote only about new shows, not returning ones, as much as we also love Top of the Lake and Curb Your Enthusiasm. And there are shows we skipped, given the volume, especially if they failed to make any impression either way (such as Hulu’s Future Man, Amazon’s Jean-Claude Van Johnson, and the Audience Network’s Loudermilk). Complain away about anything else!
