Circuit 3: What New Shows Are You Watching?

I’ve grown a little bored with the TV shows I’m watching. While I’ve tried just about everything outside of network TV – because, no – I haven’t been able to fall head over heels for anything new since last year’s cornucopia of new shows (True Detective, Fargo, The Leftovers) with one exception.
