    Can you not get off the air television with an antenna?

    Watching "Jack Ryan" on Amazon Prime. I won't say great, but intriguing enough to keep me watching for now.

    "Sneaky Pete" was good

    There are some really good series on Netflix

    "Broadchurch" being one of the best, highly recommend this one.

    "Luther" and a whole bunch of others I may list at another time.

    The Sinner! I rarely commit to a series, but I loved The Sinner Season 1 and I was so happy to learn that there was a Season 2. I really like Bill Pullman as an actor and his character on The Sinner is so human, which showed so much on Season 1 and the way it ended was really touching because it was so hard and unusual for this character. Now I just wait every week for the next episode of Season 2. I just wish it wasn't a limited episode series.

    You are so right about that! The sound quality was so poor on both of my flat screens. I purchased external speakers for both and it is so much better!!!!

    Lara, I didn't know that about flat screens and poor sound quality. No wonder I have to put on the closed captions for nearly everything I watch!

    To get back to the original question, I'm currently "binge watching" two series: The Americans, on Amazon Prime, and Better Call Saul, on HBO. Both are excellently done. But I'm a little disappointed so far in the 4th season of Better Call Saul. It's become very "dark" and violent, lots of shooting, etc., and seems to be mainly focused on the gang wars between the drug dealers. It's more like Breaking Bad, for which this series is a prequel. I like it
    better when it focuses on Jimmy and Kim, as the first three season did. They were funny and delightful to watch.

    But I'll stick with it; maybe it will lighten up.

    Good to know about The Americans, Sunny. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Invest in a good sound bar. Makes a huge difference. Tv speakers are the pits.

    I got hooked on Yellowstone series. Rough language but a good watch. No cable but have a Paramount pictures app and watch on my iPad.

    "Yellowstone", season 1, was Outstanding! It was only about 4 shows in before they announced that Season 2 would be a Go. You can watch the entire series on your computer, if you missed any episodes....but it is important to watch the episodes in order....as the storyline continues to get more complex with every show. I'm looking forward to Season 2.

    I'm going to check that one out. I like John Krasinski. But I don't know if I will be able to see him as an action hero type after getting to know him as Jim Halpert over 9 seasons of "The Office"

    I liked Luther a lot. Until they killed Alice. That show will not be the same without her.

    Honestly, he wasn't great in this new roll, his acting was rather bland. After finishing watching the series I give it 3 out of 5 stars.

    Ah! But, Alice, will be returning in the new season. Filming has already commenced.

    I recently binge-watched 4 seasons of How to Get Away With Murder, starring Viola Davis. Very intense and I got caught up in it, plus I love Viola.

    I've heard that too, but I will believe it when I see it. I'm not going to settle for a few cameos or flashbacks. I want Alice back as a regular!
