The Top 10 Shows Available on Amazon Prime
Here’s the deal with the Golden Age of television: How are you able to do anything else with your time? You could keep streaming shows all day long and never run out of good television to watch because there are so many shows that are either very good or good enough to be considered excellent.
Keeping this in mind, I hope you weren’t intending to get anything else done with the rest of your day because we’ve compiled a list of the top television shows available through Amazon Prime Video.

The good news is that there is a show for those viewers who were super into Yellowstone but want a lot more science fiction in their Westerns. The show in question is called “The Expanse.” There is a different family at the center of the story, and this one is led by a patriarch who is played by another acting powerhouse in the form of Josh Brolin.
This particular patriarch is one who is attempting to keep his family together after a significant loss has occurred. When a mysterious hole appears on the Abbotts’ property, one that gives the appearance of being endless and leads to what could be a different place and time, it becomes apparent that the Abbotts have more than just their own universe to deal with.
It is both creative and cathartic, revealing a lot about the family at its center while at the same time finding splendor in the overwhelming awe of the unknown.
Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls
Even though it is a competition series, Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls is not your typical reality show in any way. Although drama can be entertaining (and that is not to say that this show is completely devoid of it; there are still plenty of high stakes and strong personalities), the focus of this show is on more upbeat topics such as self-love, confidence, and friendship.
Lizzo is a well-known name, and for good reason: she possesses a commanding voice and some seriously impressive dance moves. As she chooses an incredible cast of dancers from a wide range of backgrounds to accompany her on tour, she is a never-ending source of entertainment to watch.
After listening to the contestants’ incredible backstories and goals, it’s impossible not to root for them, as their talent is off the charts and their ambitions are inspiring.
Our hearts are going to be somewhat soothed by the presence of another diverse and lovable family in the Diazes, the unit at the heart of Gloria Calderón Kellett’s newest series for Prime Video called With Love. Those of us (and there are a lot of us!) who are still mourning the cancellation of One Day at a Time (again!) will have our hearts somewhat soothed by the presence of this family.
The series (which was just renewed for a second season!) follows a close-knit unit of relatives through a series of holidays (the first season consists of five episodes titled after celebrations like “Valentine’s Day” and “Da De Los Muertos”), but it is also brimming over with delightful rom-com elements in addition to charmingly earnest characters. The first season consists of five episodes titled after celebrations like “Valentine’s Day,”
Loops, quantum entanglement, and a whole lot of people with their heads screwed on backward: Time travel shows have completely embraced the inverse relationship that exists between narrative linearity and the difficulties that characters face.
The most recent example of this is Undone, a rotoscoped Amazon series created by Kate Purdy and Raphael Bob-Waksberg, who are also responsible for BoJack Horseman. In addition to being nonlinear, it is also antilinear. Storytelling in a linear fashion runs counter to the entire premise of the work, which seeks to encourage unconventional ways of perceiving the world.

The diverse (and neurodiverse) experiences of the show’s characters—told through immigrant tales, multicultural backgrounds, and yes, those that can screw with the timeline—exist to create a message of complicated inclusion that exists to create a show that is bold yet repetitive but is completely original.
Thankfully, it’s also visually exciting enough to sustain most of its philosophical musings, and the main character is charming enough to shoulder some head-shaking misfires. Overall, it’s a pretty solid piece of work.
Alma is played by Rosa Salazar, and she is a small-scale rebel who narrowly escapes death in a car accident. She is the type of character that would not feel out of place in a film directed by Richard Linklater. After that, the normally rigid workings of time play hooky, and she sees her deceased father, played by Bob Odenkirk, appear in front of her.
He goes all Hamlet on her and reveals that he was actually killed by someone else. Because of the unique abilities she possesses, Alma is, of course, the only person who can put things back in order. It’s an odd tale to begin with, and as we follow Alma further down the rabbit hole, it only gets more bizarre.
The characters, including Alma’s sister Becca (Angelique Cabral) and mom Camila (Constance Marie) in addition to her ghost pop’s existential Yoda (there’s even a “there is no ‘try’ moment), are more coherent than the story they’re telling.
This is the only way a show that is attempting to be mysterious but not cliffhanger-y can keep you watching. The movie Undone is overly ambitious and stunningly beautiful, but it’s a lot more fun to watch when it doesn’t take its eye off of the outstanding performance given by the lead actor.
The Legend of Vox Machina
The Legend of Vox Machina is now available on Prime Video at the same time that the corporate owners of Dungeons & Dragons are also making moves to bring the property back to the big screen, and at the same time that fans of roleplaying games are questioning the foundational biases of the hobby.
Even though there is no official connection between the show and the game, the tabletop role-playing game logic and archetypes are clearly evident in both the setting and the characters in the show. The voice actors from Critical Role reprise their roles in this animated series about a group of down-on-their-luck mercenaries engaging in high adventure, bar room brawls, and other familiar high fantasy shenanigans.

This series is really violent and occasionally sexually explicit. In contrast to previous attempts to adapt properties from role-playing games (RPGs), the focus of this show is not on any dusty lore but rather on the grim histories of the characters and a group dynamic that has been lived in.
The show makes a concerted effort to steer clear of the underlying biases that the TTRPG industry and community are investigating, and it reflects the sensibilities of a new generation of eager gamers. Despite the fact that the main cast itself isn’t the most diverse, the show makes this choice.
Gianluigi Ribisi plays Marius in Sneaky Pete, a conman who, in an act of tragicomic brilliance, fakes a bank robbery (albeit with a real gun and by frightening the bank customers) in order to avoid being killed by his pursuers. Marius assumes Pete’s identity when he’s released from prison three years later after listening to Pete’s non-stop stories about his long-lost family.
As a result, the show’s humor relies on the interplay of truth and fiction, what is real and what is fantasy, and the gradual understanding of what constitutes “family.” For those of us who understand that families are made up of people who love each other in whatever structure works best for them, Sneaky Pete is the ultimate show about family.
In Vanity Fair, the central character is essentially the antithesis of what we’ve come to expect from heroines in stories like this. Nevertheless, this razor-sharp adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray’s 1848 novel has never felt more relevant, thanks to its grifter leading lady and constant acknowledgment that humanity is generally no better than it has to be.

Olivia Cooke plays a sly, pitch-perfect Becky Sharpe in this 2018 retelling (Reese Witherspoon’s portrayal of this character always had too much of an America’s Sweetheart vibe to be convincing to me). When she’s scamming her way up the social ladder, it’s just plain fun to watch her do it.
Even if they’re all British actors like Martin Clunes, Frances de la Tour, and Tom Bateman, the people around her are even worse.
After a plane crash, the group of teenage girls lands on a mysterious island where they must not only survive the unknown but also each other. The Wilds sounds like it could be a ripoff of Lost, but with teenage girls. One girl’s pre-crash struggles with identity, heartbreak, and abuse are intertwined with their on-island battle to survive in each episode, just like in Lost.
In The Wilds, the plotting is strong, the characters are well-drawn, and the story is easy to binge. As a whole, however, the show’s greatest achievement is its ability to accurately portray the highs and lows of adolescence. Despite their strength, they are not invincible; they are snarky, suspicious, and loyal all at the same time.
The Wilds is a show I never expected to watch, but after hearing the surreal acapella rendition of Pink’s “Raise Your Glass” at a beach funeral at dusk in the first episode, you’ll be too.
The Man in the High Castle
A number of other networks could have aired the Amazon original series, based on Philip K. Dick’s 1962 novel, at any other time. However, the dystopian drama, set in an alternate history in which the United States fails to win World War II, appears to be doomed for the time being.
The show depicts a post-World War II United States that is anything but united. Eastern European countries have been taken over by Germany. In Japan, there is a West Coast. The Rocky Mountains serve as a buffer zone between the two.
An unexpected journey begins for Juliana Crain (Alexa Davalos), a young woman living in San Francisco when she acquires a newsreel film depicting the Allies’ victory in World War II. Strangest of all, less than a month before the second season of The Man in the High Castle premiered, something happened in the United States about the show.
It was a landslide victory for Donald Trump. Fake news and post-truth had to be dealt with by an awestruck nation. On Nov. 9, 2016, the show had a new meaning for anyone who woke up feeling like they had entered a parallel universe.
The Wheel of Time
We may be getting the Lord of the Rings TV show on Prime Video, but while we wait, we can watch another epic fantasy show. The Wheel of Time is also based on a series of books, and Rosamund Pike plays a powerful woman who is part of a group of magically skilled women.
She takes five young people on a trip around the world because she thinks one of them might be the reincarnation of the Dragon that was predicted. Things start to get interesting in the fourth episode, which is a great place to start.
