Hypegram : The essential TV shows you can't find on Netflix, Amazon or Now TV ARTICLE 162540443 The essential TV shows you can't find on Netflix, Amazon or Now TV english ARTICLE

TV fans would expect to have access to more shows than ever on the major platforms in the age of streaming. But there are some glaring omissions that should be saved from the DVD bin

Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis spent Moonlighting, and it is about time the Blue Moon detective agency found a mass audience again. Not afraid to let characters break the fourth wall or bring in Orson Welles for a cameo, Moonlighting was a groundbreaking show packed with frisky one-liners as . Shepherd smouldered as Maddie, an ex-model trying to make a living as a private investigator while displaying the best workwear wardrobe of her era. Willis was a world away from his Die Hard persona, and was the perfect foil to her seriousness. They were the Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant of their time, a pairing made all the more delicious by rumours that they fought off-set as well as on it. Sure, Moonlighting would appear dated now, but it is ripe for a streaming rerun.

5 TV shows that should rule the Emmys but probably won't get nominated
AMC
Emmy nominations come out this morning, with an announcement at 11:30 a.m. ET that you can watch live here. 
In 2018, there were 728 TV shows on the ballot and a daunting 2,372 performances. Members of the Television Academy had until June 26 to vote.
With so many shows and performances in the running, a lot of them won't get the recognition they deserve, even some of the year's best in TV. The slew of contenders especially doesn't help  shows in the drama category with "Game of Thrones" season seven being eligible this year. (It was excluded from the ceremony last year because the season premiered after voting already closed).
Award show favorites including "The Handmaid's Tale," "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," "Atlanta," and "Westworld" are all in the running in addition to "Game of Thrones" this year, which means that some of the lesser-known gems might miss out on deserved nominations. We picked a few of the best.
The Emmy ceremony, hosted by Colin Jost and Michael Che, airs September 17.
From AMC's "Halt and Catch Fire" to Netflix's "American Vandal," here are 5 TV shows that deserve Emmys this year, but probably won't get any nominations:
"The Good Place" — NBC NBC
Nominations it deserves: Best comedy series, best actor in a comedy series (Ted Danson), best supporting actress in a comedy series (D'Arcy Carden), best supporting actor in a comedy series (William Jackson Harper)
"The Good Place" is the most ambitious show on TV (including "Westworld"). Unfortunately, it didn't get any recognition at the Emmys in 2017. In season two, the writers delivered more and more unexpected narrative and character twists, and broadened its fictional world without, like "Westworld," confusing fans or making them exhausted from many dramatic eye-rolls. Its season-two finale teased a completely different format for the series that promises an even bigger, better, and more gutsy third season. The performances, particularly from Ted Danson and the supporting cast, make it even more special.

"Trust" — FX FX
Nominations it deserves: Best limited series, best supporting actor in a limited series (Brendan Fraser)
"Trust" tells the story of the Getty family — more specifically the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III in 1973 (sans Christopher Plummer). It's glamorous and stylish thanks to executive producer Danny Boyle, who directed a few episodes. But what is truly the best thing about "Trust" is Brendan Fraser, who carries this limited series with his unfiltered performance as James Fletcher Chase (the role Mark Wahlberg plays in "All the Money in the World"). 

"Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" — The CW The CW
Nominations it deserves: Best comedy series, best actress in a comedy series (Rachel Bloom), best supporting actress in a comedy series (Donna Lynne Champlin)
In season three, "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" challenged itself more than ever. Within the first few episodes of the season, Rebecca Bunch (played by co-creator Rachel Bloom) attempts suicide. In the aftermath, she gets diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. While "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" isn't the first TV show to cover mental illness, it is the first to approach it in such a deeply personal and vulnerable way. Bloom, along with co-star Donna Lynne Champlin, keep the comedy and quirky spirit of the show afloat during an incredibly dramatic season of television.

8 TV shows and people that don't deserve their Emmy nominations
Netflix
We've been living in the age of Peak TV for years and there's more to watch than ever before.
The Emmy Awards are supposed to represent the best that television has to offer, but that's not always the case. With more than 9100 submissions across 102 categories, Emmy voters had a lot to consider in 2018 and they definitely didn't get to watch it all.
On Thursday, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced the 2018 nominees, and while they mostly got it right recognizing "The Americans," "Game of Thrones," "This Is Us,"  "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," and "Atlanta," there are a few nominations that are throwing us for a loop.
Here are the shows and stars that really haven't earned their place in the this year's Emmys race.
"Stranger Things 2" (Netflix) Netflix
The second season of the 80s-set Netflix series was fun to watch, but "Stranger Things 2" had a lot of problems, including annoying new characters and a bloated episode count that dragged the story on for far too long.
 

"Curb Your Enthusiasm" (HBO) HBO
HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" returned for its ninth season in 2017 and felt like a relic from another era after what amounted to a long six-year hiatus. Critics largely agreed that the show felt out of touch , tired, and dated in today's TV landscape. But Emmy voters seem to think otherwise having nominated the show and its creator, Larry David, for awards once again.
 

"Westworld" (HBO) HBO
The first season of "Westworld" was fantastic and deserved to be celebrated as such, but season two was a downright mess. The HBO show became too complicated for its own good and viewers lost interest along the way. While many of the show's cast members picked up nominations that are deserved, the series' second season as a whole really shouldn't be lauded as good television.

10 Emmy-worthy TV shows you're not watching but you should
Showtime
The Emmys are a celebration of the best that television has to offer. And these days, there simply are too many shows and not enough hours in a day to watch them all.
Emmy voters have a tendency to nominate familiar, flashy shows that attract a lot of attention ( "Game of Thrones,"   "This Is Us" ), but they occasionally take a chance something new and exciting.
Winners won't be announced until September 17, which gives you plenty of time to check out these Emmy-worthy shows you might have missed.
"Barry" (HBO) HBO
This dark comedy stars Bill Hader as a hitman who tries to put his murderous past behind him after he discovers his love for acting.
Nominations: 13 nominations including best comedy series and best lead actor in a comedy series (Bill Hader).
Where to stream: HBO
Where to rent/buy: YouTube , Google Play

"Patrick Melrose" (Showtime) HBO
If you haven't heard of Showtime’s "Patrick Melrose," you're not alone. The five-episode miniseries didn't attract huge ratings when it premiered in May, but critics loved Benedict Cumberbatch's performance as a drug-addicted aristocrat living in New York in the 1980s.
Nominations: Five nominations including best miniseries and best actor in a limited series or TV movie (Benedict Cumberbatch).
Where to stream: Showtime
Where to rent/buy: N/A
 

"Ozark" (Netflix) Netflix
Jason Bateman stars as an accountant who suddenly relocates his family to Missouri when a money laundering scheme goes awry and finds himself in debt with a drug cartel. The show is bleak and depressing as hell, but well made.
Nominations: Five nominations including best lead actor in a drama series (Jason Bateman).
Where to stream: Netflix
Where to rent/buy: N/A
