This is the way.
I do this for most streaming services if I have a choice, examples with some of the watched shows in ( ):
H&R= Hit and run, 1 month subscription...
  • Netflix- keep, there is just too much there.
  • Amazon Prime- keep, get as part of my ongoing prime membership
  • SlingTV- keep, because of channels offered.
  • Disney + Wife make me. (Otherwise H&R for specific Marvel content).
  • Britbox- Wife makes me. (Gardener’s World)
  • HBO Now- Hit and Run. (Game of Thrones)
  • Showtime- H&R. (Homeland, Dexter)
  • Starz- H&R (anticipate for Outlander after I finish Season 4 on Netflix)
  • Apple+ H&R (For All Mankind)
  • CBS All access- H&R (Star Trek)
  • Hulu- H&R (Hand Maiden’s Tale)

I hang onto Netflix, Prime, HBO MAX, Apple TV, the last because it's still free to me but I'll probably shell out for it as there seem to be enough shows I like to make it worthwhile. That's all plenty for me because there's so much stuff there I've never seen and some I do want to make time to watch.

Right now I've embarked on watching Shtisel on Netflix and finding I really like it.

Watching Night Stalker: The Search For A Serial Killer on Netflix, an interesting, but disturbing case. Can it be argued this is insanity or evil? This guy had an awful abused childhood.

Started the brand new Netflix series Shadow and Bone yesterday. Will watch another episode or two this evening. It reminds me a little of GOT in that it has an alternate geography and ethnic system, but still very much the same problems faced everywhere today (without the magic).

I'm watching Shtisel on Netflix, liking it a lot, trying not to binge-watch (or for that matter binge-eat since they keep having scenes with someone either making, eating or serving stuff like Israeli chopped-veggie salads w/ pitas etc and I'm like wait up I got some of that in the fridge...).

This is on our list to watch.

Pondering the next newish TV series to pop in on... meanwhile went back to The Americans, which I'd temporarily abandoned somewhere around the fourth season. I still have faint hopes that the weather will finally shift out of this blasted pattern of Really Cold Spring (snow in the forecast yet again this coming Friday, gee) and so I'm reluctant to get too attached to any new series when I know I'll ditch it for the great outdoors as soon as it's not 48º and raining (or worse). Meanwhile a few episodes of The Americans are once again holding my attention in the evenings.

A most excellent show. It really stuck the landing, IMO.

Found another gold. Upstart Crow available on Prime. It is, of course, about Shakespeare and it is hilarious. Four seasons so far and I'm almost done with the second. Brilliantly done with lots of reference to what it might be like in the future.

Just started Shadow and Bone (Netflix), 2 episodes in, it’s looking good with a vibe and atmosphere I like.

Loved that a show, but cursed every season they got away. ;)

Even though the characters are weak, Debris continues to pull me back in week after week because it's just so damn weird.

Last week's arc (2-parter) was wonderful. I don't normally like 2-part episodes, but this was great, even if my husband felt it went on too long and hated the resolution.

Every week is something completely new.
