    Westword (absolutely top notch sci-fi based on the excellent original film)

    Divorce (gritty comedy with the actress who was in Sex In The City)

    Aftermath (surviving in a Biblically End of the World world)

    Designated Survivor (unelected US president after government wiped out)

    Berlin Station (faster paced version of Homeland)

    In johnny-come-lately-mode...

    Just watched the first 10 episodes of Westworld; I think it's possibly the best SiFi I've seen in decades.
