ABC, 10:00 p.m. ET

 
SERIES PREMIERE: Cobie Smulders, who has successfully negotiated both the silly romantic comedy of the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother and the action-movie requirements of the Marvel Avengers franchise, stars in this new drama series. It’s based on a graphic novel, and set in Portland, and presents Smulders as Dex, a war veteran with a past, a drinking problem, and some apparent PTSD – like an ABC version of Netflix’s Marvel heroine from another illustrated inspiration, Jessica Jones, which presented Krysten Ritter as a similarly rough-and-tumble protagonistWatch Stumpland for the leading lady, and see if that’s enough for you. For full reviews, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower and Ed Bark's Uncle Barky's Bytes.
