With such wide variety of Amazon Prime originals, it’ll be hard to decide how to spend your precious binge time! Instead of spending endless hours trying to figure out what to watch, we’ve put together the top five Amazon Prime Originals you can’t afford to miss!
Let’s be real, who doesn’t love superheroes misbehaving? “The Boys,” the television show based on the comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, introduces an interesting cast of super-natural humans. The show follows a world where superheroes are commodified into action figures and take part in heroic publicity stunts so that the powerful corporation that owns them can market and monetize on them.
A reality questioning, sharp, compelling, and heartbreaking story about Alma, who was involved in a near-fatal car accident. After waking from the coma she was in, she gains the ability to communicate with her late father, Jacob, who claims that he was murdered because he researched time travel. “Undone” is Amazon’s first episodic series to utilize the surreal technique known as Rotoscope animation. Raphael Bob-Waksberg and Kate Purdy managed to create a series has it all.
Co-produced by Amazon and England’s BBC Three, each of the show’s season has six half-hour episodes that fans can’t help but soak in and savor. If we’re lucky, Waller-Bridge will continue on her path of becoming one of the leading creative voices of her generation! “Fleabag” stars the ever-so-talented Pheobe Waller-Bridge, who is also the shows creator. Set in London, it tells the story of a young woman on an endeavor to navigate modern life in the city. The show is hysterical, dirty, and manages to depict grief and loneliness accurately.
“Transparent,” starring Jeffrey Tambor, centers around a character who decides, late in life, to transition into a woman. We see how her decision affects her family through the pain of an older woman realizing she’s wasted so much of her life as a man. The drama tells its story in a way that dignifies its deeply flawed, multifaceted characters. “Transparent” is tragic and heartbreaking at times, and triumphant at others. The beautifully heartbreaking and heartbreakingly beautiful series is a must for anyone interested in this moment of cultural history.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Writer-director Amy Sherman-Palladino caught everyone’s attention when she wrote a story about a 1950s housewife. Apart from the witty writing, Rachel Brosnahan’s outstanding performance that makes the show as compelling as it is rowdy! “Midge,” Maisel found a voice on stage, and between performing for bohemian crowds at Greenwich Village’s The Gaslight Cafe and toasting her wedding, the crowd seems to love Maisel!
