Expanding on that, Native Americans feature relatively prominently throughout 
the show.  The backstory of the lead actor includes the fact that he's a 
widower, who's Native American wife was an army doctor who was killed in 
Afghanistan.  His home life, where his daughter is being raised by his Native 
American in-laws while he's on the road chasing bad guys, usually gets a few 
minutes of air time at the beginning and/or end of each episode.

Nathaniel Arcand plays the second-in-command of the fugitive chase team on new 
CBS series "FBI: Most Wanted".  His Native American heritage is displayed 
fairly prominently as general background noise and they've already had one 
episode this season devoted to a Native American fugitive that they had to 
track onto a reservation.

It recently started airing on Alibi in the UK, and I must admit that I think 
I'm in. I'm not going to pretend that it's anything too different, but the lead 
character is interesting, and it's not a crime of the week series. The show's 
tape-deck thing will wear thin after a while - I mean tapes come round 
eventually even allowing for it being a C90 compilation. It might be nice if, 
beyond the pilot and a couple of exterior pick-up shots, they actually shot the 
thing in Portland.

One thing. It would be great if there were a US TV series where the Native 
American characters weren't slightly shady (at best) or downright crooked (at 
worst) casino owners. I'm wracking my brain to think of the last show where a 
major or recurring Native American character wasn't in some way an antagonist 
of the lead. Perhaps Lou Diamond Philip's character in Longmire (even if 
Philips himself isn't actually Native American), although that series 
definitely had the antagonistic reservation police cop. Surely I don't have to 
go back to Ed from Northern Exposure?

The Stumptown trailer suggested a horrible series, but Aaron Barnhart gave it a 
good review. I still haven't checked it out because I've got so much on 
Netflix, Hulu, etc to watch.

Crap - I really, really loved "Single Parents." One of my few appointment 
series. Watched every episode.

And I liked "Schooled," too - not something I went out of my way to watch but, 
like "The Goldbergs" (which it spun off from), it made me laugh whenever I 
watched it.

"Bless This Mess" was terrible, though. No big loss there.

Still on the fence about "Stumptown," though I'm glad it got renewed. I've seen 
every episode, and I like it, but it's missing something... just not sure what. 
Maybe, like its lead character, it always seems to be content with just getting 
by.
