The Lincoln Lawyer
Created by: David E. Kelley

Cast: Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Neve Campbell, Becki Newton, Jazz Raycole, Angus Sampson, Christopher Gorham

The Lincoln Lawyer is everything a great legal drama should be: suspenseful, compelling, and unpredictable. Anchored by Manuel Garcia-Rulfo’s excellent performance as Mickey Haller, a skeptical yet optimistic criminal defense attorney as well as a recovering addict who runs his practice out of his town car, The Lincoln Lawyer is a solid adaptation of the Michael Connelly novel of the same name. Other standouts include Neve Campbell as Maggie McPherson, Halley’s first wife and a criminal prosecutor. If you’re looking for a sleek, sophisticated series, The Lincoln Lawyer is sure to deliver. – Taylor Gates

Better Call Saul
Creator: Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould

Cast: Bob Odenkirk, Rhea Seehorn, Jonathan Banks

Set in the Breaking Bad universe, Better Call Saul is a prequel series following criminal lawyer Jimmy McGill before his life-changing introduction to the infamous Walter White and Jesse Pinkman. Bob Odenkirk seamlessly slips back into his iconic character in the series, allowing creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould to peel back the layers of the fan-favorite lawman. While a handful of original characters crossover into Better Call Saul, the greatest addition to this story is the underrated Rhea Seehorn(Veep) as she brings Kim Wexler to life. – Yael Tygiel

The Sandman
Created by: Neil Gaiman, David S. Goyer, Allan Heinberg

Cast: Tom Sturridge, Boyd Holbrook, Vivienne Acheampong, Patton Oswalt

Based on the comics also by Neil Gaiman, The Sandman is a grand, time-traveling story that focuses on The King of Dreams (Tom Sturridge), who, after being imprisoned by a mortal wizard for decades, goes on a quest to reclaim his lost items of power and restore his realm called The Dreaming. The series seemingly does the impossible by so faithfully adapting its rich, complex source material and has been praised for its performances and production design. A fantasy horror with depth that will have you asking hard questions – and possibly even make you reach for the tissues – The Sandman is a can’t-miss. – Taylor Gates

Uncoupled
Creators: Jeffrey Richman, Darren Star

Cast: Neil Patrick Harris, Tisha Campbell, Brooks Ashmanskas

Uncoupled stars Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) as a middle-aged gay man who gets dumped after nearly two decades of dating and is forced to salvage himself in this new stage in his life. Co-created by Jeffrey Richman (Modern Family) andDarren Star (Sex And The City), Uncoupled is a playful comedy commenting on the relatability of rediscovery at any age. Harris hones his comedic expertise in the series, joined on his journey by a best friend played by Tisha Campbell (Harley Quinn), with appearances from the incomparable Marcia Gay Harden (The Morning Show). Uncoupled is a superb comedy with a stellar cast and a genuine message for viewers of all generations. – Yael Tygiel

Most Hated Man on the Internet
Directed by: Rob Miller

In today’s digital age, Most Hated Man on the Internet is a more timely docuseries than ever. The show exposes Hunter Moore, the man who ran IsAnyoneUp.com – a revenge porn site that posted a slew of explicit reader-submitted photos without the image subjects’ permission. Moore, a self-proclaimed “professional life-ruiner,” makes for one nasty villain, taking pleasure in being the sleaziest guy possible. However, the series also finds a hero in Charlotte Laws, a mother whose daughter was a victim of Moore. Most Hated Man on the Internet is a compelling doc that ultimately does offer a sense of justice. Fans of series like The Tinder Swindler are sure to enjoy it. – Taylor Gates
