    New or newish series I have enjoyed include:

    Better Things (comedy/drama about a single mum)

    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...

    Breaking Bad

    Shameless (US)

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

    Indeed.

    And Anthony Hopkins certainly didn't phone his performance in!

    Yes he was brilliant.
    I expected Theresa to be a cyborg; got that wrong.
