The new CBS TV series Instinct, premieres tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT, but not everyone has cable. Fortunately, the new show is available on CBS All-Access, along with other cable-free options.
Instinct is about a former CIA operative named Dr. Dylan Reinhart and he has chosen to be a professor, for a more quiet lifestyle. He also is a best-selling author for a book on abnormal behavior. Reinhart is played by Alan Cumming. His character is joined by the tenacious NYPD detective Lizzie Needham, who asks for his help to solve a case that involves a serial killer. Reinhart gets right back into his old habits and also reaches out to a CIA friend, who has access to top-secret information. As Reinhart returns to this action-packed life, he and Needham realize that they make a pretty good team.
Episode 1 of the series, focuses on luring Reinhart back into his old life, while episode 2’s plot synopsis reads,”Dylan, having returned to teaching after helping the NYPD catch a serial killer, is called upon again to aid Detective Needham on a complex case involving the murder of a venture capitalist.” Episode 2 is titled “Wild Game.” If you would like to watch Instinct, but you don’t have cable, can’t find the right channel or can’t get to a television, you can watch the CBS network online, on your phone or on another streaming device by signing up for one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services.
