“NCIS,” an investigative procedural in a military setting, became the top-rated scripted show on TV in 2009, thanks to cast chemistry and a surprisingly light touch. It’s a sunnier alternative to its darker, more acclaimed counterpart “CSI,” and Netflix now has “NCIS: Seasons 1-11.”
Netflix also has “Hell on Wheels: Season 4” a week before the fifth season rolls out, and the final seasons of “White Collar: Season 6” and “Witches of East End: Season 2.”
Underwhelmed by “Terminator Genisys”? Netflix has the original “The Terminator” (1984), with Arnold Schwarzenegger as a rampaging cyborg killer. It’s rated R. For a kid-friendly ’80s summer-movie flashback, see Matthew Broderick in “WarGames” (1983) as a hacker in the dial-up age and in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” as the hardest-working slacker in high school.

In “The Expendables 3” (2014), Sylvester Stallone leads his geriatric squad to save the new blood from a supervillain (Mel Gibson). Harrison Ford and Kelsey Grammer get in on the PG-13 action this time around.
“Extant: Season 2” is now running on CBS but Prime subscribers can see new episodes the day after their network premiere. Two episodes currently available.
“Prime Suspect: Series 1-7” is not just a great British TV crime drama. The original 1991 miniseries gave Helen Mirren her best role to date and relaunched her career at an age when most actresses find their options narrowed. Six more series followed. Hulu has them all.
