The Leftovers, Mr Robot, and The Good Place are my favorites from this year. Haven't seen the most recent season of Saul yet though.

Contenders for inclusion on a top-ten all-time list of some kind:

Big Little Lies (HBO) for its acting and for having TV's best cast of the year
Halt and Catch Fire, Season 4 (AMC) for finishing strong the best post-Mad-Men show TV has yet seen

Contenders for inclusion on a best-of-2017 list:
Better Call Saul
The Deuce
Silicon Valley
The Americans
Game of Thrones
Fargo, Season 3
Baskets

not really best-of-anything anymore, but I watched and enjoyed every minute of:
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Shameless

Fargo was probably the biggest letdown of the year for me.

Forgot about Master of None. Guess I didn't like it as much as I thought I did.
