I had almost given up on NCIS, but I'm happily watching shows that I missed live (most of them). I don't know why, but I deal better with streamed shows on Netflix and HuluPlus than I do on over-the-air TV or cable.
I'm still waiting for Longmire's new season (Sept. 23). Last year, I watched the entire season (about 10 episodes) in two days. I may do it again.
Holly and I recently added Acorn TV to our list of streaming carriers, to go with Netflix, Hulu and Sling TV. All of those add up to much less than cable TV; I think we pay less $45 a month for all of those.
Sling ($20 a month) is the most expensive, by far, but it'll soon be worth it; football.
NOTE: In mid-September, Netflix just added another season of Hawaii Five-0, and I've been watching it. I'm being a little slower at moving through the season.
NOTE 2: I'm most of the way through the season of Longmire; I'm savoring it.
