Pretty much everywhere you look, things are bad. Sexual predators in Hollywood, Washington, Alabama, and between and beyond. Wildfires in Los Angeles and Ventura counties – in December! (As someone observed on Twitter this week, there’s no such thing as “fire season” any more.) The rapacious tax bill. The shrinking of public lands. Reckless, cynical legislation designed to make it easier to carry concealed weapons anywhere you damn want.
But don’t give up quite yet: On TV, badness takes a holiday, and it’s all Good. I counted five Good titles in the current lineup, one coming soon, one in production, and two more that ended recently and are still viewable on demand.
