Amazon Prime Video Watchlist

Posted: Mar 15, 2020 5:02 PM

Saw we had a thread of Netflix recommendations so thought we could do the same for Amazon Prime Video:

The Expanse
Black Sails
Jack Ryan
The Man In the High Castle
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Carnival Row (if you are a Sci-Fi/Fantasy or Steampunk fan)

If I had to choose only one series to watch it would be "The Expanse". It's a science fiction series but everyone I know that has watched it likes it - even those not prone to watching science fiction. It is well written, has realistic/good effects with an interesting plot line. Check it out - you'll be glad you did.

The Expanse and Carnival Row are top notch. Their budgets must have been huge.
If you enjoy a good medieval story about on the formation of England, I recommend The Last Kingdom. It's based on the Saxon Chronicles series written by Bernard Cornwell. The fourth season will begin later this month. Here's the trailer from the first season:

Last Kingdom is good but Vikings is better imo. Last Kingdom is on Netflix tho I thought. Vikings is on Prime. I have thought about watching carnival row but haven't yet. I'm guessing I need to go ahead and do it huh?

You have 12 seasons of Doctor Who on prime video

The Tenant, Smith, Capaldi seasons are really good.

Last kingdom is great
Also suggest Goliath with Billy Bob Thornton. Second season was a little weak but first and third were great

The Wire is the best show on Prime hands down.

Vikings is a pretty good show as well.

I loved Deadwood but it tailed off in the 3rd season imo.

I will have to try out The Expanse.

I would agree "The Expanse" is the place to start unless you despise Sci Fi.

"The Man in the High Castle" took me a few episodes to get into it, but we'll worth it.

I liked "Good Omens" a lot as well.

Older but still awesome and up there with the best series of all time is "The Wire"

The Wire was crazy good. Had me hooked from the first episode.

Second those who love The Expanse. Hard SF, set in a realistic future. Huge budget. Huge vision. The last season played like a ten-hour movie.

Banshee. The most underrated show of all time. Shot right up the road in Charlotte with a few scenes in Belton-Honea Path; anyone who's been through there will recognize it. Was missed because it was hiding out among the booby flicks on Cinemax...it definitely does not skimp on those, but it's a lot more like Breaking Bad with a lot more energy. And a lot more fun. Also has an absolutely perfect ending, unlike many other shows.

Orphan Black. Cool little show that originally dropped on BBC America, got its own very devoted cult following. An English grifter living in America sees a woman on a subway platform who looks just like her...right before her double kills herself. The con woman makes the mistake of assuming the woman's identity...and very quickly discovers there was a real good reason her look-alike was jumping. Tatiana Maslany plays about 20 roles on this show and in a just world should win "most versatile actress" for the next 20 years running.

The Man in the High Castle. Set in an alternate America where the Axis won the war, a woman living in Japanese-occupied San Francisco comes into possession of a film...showing the Allied victory parade from our reality. And Hitler really, really wants that film. Dark and more than a bit slow at times...but extremely well done.

I really liked Black Sails myself, I've watched the entire series twice. One of my favorite was Captain Flint, and that other pirate captain Charles Vane!!!

a little old, but Justified is the greatest show I’ve ever watched...

I binged it in about 6 weeks. It ruined any other show for me because nothing can compare.
