It appears I'm just searching for the wrong thing. Fair do's (but screw you all for interrupting a nice rant).

Just finished season 5 and I believe it to be the best season by far. The series has really gotten me into the books. I really like this character and Titus Welliver is fantastic. Similar to how he was in Deadwood.

And about to finish The Widow with GRB favorite Kate Beckinsale. Probably worth a watch. Mindless, but entertaining. A few twists and turns.

My biggest complaint (and the reason I never use Amazon Prime Video) is that they are still trying to have their little pissing contest with Google and I can't stream the videos to my Chromecast.

I'm not buying another box just for Prime and mirroring the screen is a pain if you should want to actually be able to check your phone while watching and even if you don't feel the need to check your notifications, you still have to go through the trouble to adjust the screen settings or constantly touch it to make sure the screen doesn't go to sleep.

This is the same reason I haven't switched from Hulu Live to YouTube TV. I can access one from my Fire TV Stick but not the other.

I am cancelling my 3rd or 4th free trial membership with prime. I used it to watch most of Deadwood season 1. Liked it a lot at first, but just got old, redundant by episode 6 . Actually was loathing watching the next episodes. Interesting well played characters though. Calamity Jane the best.

I've had it for a couple years and have watched Jack Ryan, The Americans, and a Jim Gaffigan special. The rest kind of sucks from what I've seen so far.
