Cinemax's Quarry was* quite good. The digital aesthetic works against it a little, but everything else makes you feel like you're in 1972 America. Logan Marshall-Green is equally convincing as the show's lead, blowing away his previous reputation as a bargain-basement Tom Hardy for Prometheus. Peter Mullan (looking almost like Ridley Scott funnily enough) would probably be my personal MVP, as the mysterious Broker.

The Knick getting canceled and the recent announcement from the network that they would focus much more on action shows makes me not so optimistic for a 2nd season. Plus considering how it ended, I feel like they told as much story as they could anyway.
