Overall this is adequate, but with several plot points and character traits which are difficult to believe. The biggest problem I have is the various brushes against citizen-terrorism apologetics. My takeaway is that this show is "safe", with some edginess fabricated for the kids.
A buddy cop show with an android, set in the near future.
It's great all around, especially the acting from the lead characters. Once the initial interest wears off, it lacks the good writing to give it either an episodic groove or an overall story arc. It's especially poor with an arc which could last it into another season, trivially-justifying its cancellation.
Recommended only for fans of "loose" science fiction who would be interested in the robot buddy cop angle. Watch one episode, then decide. Others can give it a pass, unless they like Karl Urban, who plays a cop played by Karl Urban.
The son of a billionaire family survives them in a plane crash in the Himalayas, and returns after being raised by monks only to find their ancient enemies throughout his old home and business. Basically Marvel's Batman.
At first I was going to ignore this series, because the Iron Fist trailer made it look like utter trash, but the YUR A WHITE MALE "mainstream liberal media" response made me interested.
Even though the superhero genre is generally tiring, this show is well worth watching, and its response is a beautiful example of fake news manufactured by "social" "justice".
Quite a good story. It's full of faces I know. Great acting and spectacular realism.
Note: This video style is shaky.
Alien high school students struggle to keep their secret.
season five is planned
Tensions between the three factions in our solar system rise with an known party's military science efforts.
Describing this one is pretty damned hard. Quite a good series, although the lead actor is just a little too young to be properly-believable. They all are, but I guess that was the target market.
An old retired cop is reborn into a younger, stronger, version of himself, and fights crime.
Seems fairly good, though I'd bet it would be bland without the pretty girl.
A dude begins his career as a night manager for some place somewhere but gets used by British intelligence to act against an arms dealer.
Fairly decent, but I suspect it's only because this is another show with a British accent being thrown around carelessly.

A man attains mystical powers originally for selfish reasons, but they taint with a life fraught with danger and demons.
Not a bad show, but the lead character's personality isn't attracting, and there's the old celestial stick-up-the-ass personality in another. The lead female is hot. Hotty hot hot.
This was cancelled after one season. Back in the 90s this show would have done well, but I'm guessing this genre has alternately been well-poisoned or saturated. This show has too much it has to be better than to catch enough attention to survive. I think that it's magic-fantasy was competing with an extraordinarily-strong superhero-fantasy genre.

- More-or-less based on Constantine - (2005 movie)
.. which in turn is based on the DC comic book series Hellblazer.
