the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel s.1: The series dragged a little bit in the middle, but the acting was first rate.  Tony Shaloub and Kevin Pollack made me want to see more of their father characters.  And the same for would-be manager Susie, played by Alex Borstein.  But Rachel Brosnahan's lead was a delight, especially during the stand-up segments.
Disjointed s.1:  I should have ignored a friend's recomendation of this one once I saw Chuck Lorre's name combined with a laugh track.  Not even Kathy Bates or Richard Kind in the final episode could pull up this stinker.

Life in PIeces s.1:  This CBS comedy seems to work much better being binged.  Especially with the removal of the commercial interuptions between the multiple stories in each episode.  A few dull or dumb portions I ended up fast forwarding, but stellar cast and some (mostly) sharp writing.
