I missed every single show on that list, but I can't help but notice that it's not exactly recent.
If there are writers capable of doing non-cliched episodic writing, it would help if they were still currently working in the business. Maybe they've retired and been replaced by hacks?
No, the examples aren't recent; that's pretty much my point. Episodic storytelling is out of fashion (in TV) and the current generation of TV writers are (generally speaking) not really up to it when they try it.
