Most of the best scripted television is happening either on the premium channels or streaming services, which means you’ve got to reach deeper into your wallet to enjoy them.
Of my top 15 shows, four aired on HBO -- including three of the top five -- three on Netflix and one each on Hulu, Amazon Prime and Starz.
Here is a rundown of my favorites from 2017.
