As TV Crashes and Burns

Many of the series that Gretchen and I watch are either wrapping up for the season (or forever) or are being cut short and rescheduled for later as they try to stretch out the remaining episodes. This is causing us to flail about and hunt for new things to watch that we both like. Sadly, this is more difficult than it might appear.

We've been watching: Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Flash, NCIS: New Orleans, Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist, The Rookie, Stumptown, Young Sheldon, Mom, Evil, Hawaii Five-O, and Magnum P.I.

We've blitzed through (in the last year): the final season of Enterprise, the first five seasons of The Flash, and the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, all of which we enjoyed.

And now we're prospecting through Comcast On Demand, Netflix, and Amazon Prime. Gretchen likes Chicago Med; me, not so much. I like Jack Ryan; Gretchen, not so much. (Too much blood.) We watched an episode of Good Omens, but it didn't grab us hard, suffering somewhat from what Gretchen refers to as "dark and mumbly". That also characterizes the half-dozen episodes of The Expanse that we watched, although I hear it gets better.
We're two episodes into Lost In Space, which is making me nostalgic for the fine science on Scorpion.

Any ideas other than giving up and loading our Castle DVDs in the player?
