Archer is also hell funny. Always liked SP and FG in their prime, but they're both getting a bit tired after 723 series each or whatever. Rick and Morty is just OMG. If you don't get it you won't like it. If you get it you will LYAO.
The Expanse is an absolutely awesome sci-fi series. First couple of episodes feel a bit low-rent/pilotish but just ignore that it's totally worth it.
Liked Westworld so far.
Mr. Robot is really good suspense/thriller, and they get the tech references right too, which is refreshing.
The Magicians is really good, surprisingly. It starts like some stupid Harry Potter rip-off, but actually has a great story if you like fantasy.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is totally the type of stupid garbage that I would never watch in a million years, except I have watched every episode and it is insanely funny+.
Preacher is really different, sometimes funny sometimes creepy, not what you are expecting.
Chance was a good psych-suspence/thriller but they cancelled it after 2 seasons.
I really enjoyed the first season of Shut Eye, second season was ok and set up the plot for a possibly good 3rd season if they make it. Can be funny and quite dark also.
Black Sails was well done for a period drama, with lots of violence and interesting historical references.
Emerald City season 1 was done pretty well for a bag of wizard-of-oz fantasy crap (not epic, but better than I expected).
Vice Principals is much better comedy than you would think if you just read the plot, has some really funny stuff.
Penny Dreadful is not bad for horror/fantasy/creepy/action.
Queen of the South is ok action/suspense crime-cartels-guns and stuff.
Dirk Gentlys Holistic Detective Agency is fun if you like Douglas Adams (hitch-hikers guide etc.)
I liked Stranger Things, particularly the first season.
Legion is technically Marvel/X-men but is done really differently (trippy mind-bending : watch this with your LSD)
I liked the first season of Travelers spyish/sci-fi stuff. Just noticed there's a 2nd season I havn't seen yet and a 3rd season on order, so that's cool.
The first couple of seasons of Sherlock (UK) are excellent. Clever well-written mystery/triller. Was a bit disappointed with the latest season.
Humans(UK) is interesting sci-fi thriller stuff so far, hope they go somewhere good with it.
If you're a lefty, hippy, tree-hugging liberal toolbag like me you probably already watch Last Week Tonight With John Oliver but if you have somehow missed it, start watching immediately. If you like guns, pickup trucks and your special cousin you should still watch it but you won't like it.
Stuff that is more light-hearted action adventure fun, but not really "great":
Killjoys was renewed at the expense of Dark Matter. They are both OKish fun sci-fi.
Lethal Weapon is just a cop show, but more enjoyable than I expected.
I'm embarassed but I still like Agents of SHIELD for some reason even though it's frequently dumb lol.
Into The Badlands is kinda different kung-fu style almost Tarantinoish action stuff.
Ash vs Evil Dead is totally stupid comedy/horror but entertaining in small doses.
Stan vs Evil is less full-on gore but funny if you like John McGinley's sarcasm (aka Dr. Cox from Scrubs).
... and I still often watch things like:
The Big Bang Theory
The Last Man On Earth
and probably a heap of other stuff I cant remember right now.
---- EDIT ----
...and with any of this stuff if you don't start with S01E01 but decide to watch some random episode, you're an idiot and should just watch whatever is on fox.
