If you’re looking for the top pick of the best shows on Amazon Prime right now, you’ve come to the right place. We know how you’re feeling. You’ve just finished one TV show and need another straight away to take its place before the grieving begins. Don’t worry, we’ve cut the wheat from the chaff to show you the very best programmes Amazon Prime has to offer.
This is our pick of the best Amazon Prime TV shows, the TV series that we have been watching and loving on what has become one of the most popular streaming services around.
[Update: From two Golden Globe winning The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel to the fantastic The Tick, Amazon has really upped its game when it comes to the television shows it’s creating. And there is more to come – it’s just announced that it will be tackling The Dark Tower books by Stephen King. While the recent movie failed to capture the depth and breadth of the sprawling fantasy franchise, here’s hoping someone can finally do King’s opus justice.]
Since the launch of Amazon Prime Video, Amazon Prime has grown into a media powerhouse. Taking, and in some ways surpassing, Netflix’s self-serving model to produce its own content, Amazon now has a huge selection of television shows that are begging to be watched on its own platform. The choice is expansive and that’s where we come in.
TechRadar has curated a list of the best Amazon Prime shows around. Chosen by the team, these are the shows that you can stream in the UK that are Instant classics primed to offer up hours of compulsive viewing.
It’s worth noting that these are the best Amazon Prime TV shows that can be watched instantly when you have Amazon Prime access. But there are many more shows you can watch through Amazon but these have to be purchased to be viewed.
We will keep this list constantly updated – if any paid shows become free that we feel need to be included, they’ll go in.
Scroll through to see our picks that we’ve divided up into the following categories: drama, comedy and thriller.
If you can only watch one…
Amazon Prime has finally got its own Black Mirror rival and it comes in the form of Electric Dreams. Originally shown on Channel 4 in the UK, each episode is an adaptation of a Philip K Dick story and it’s star packed, too. The likes of Bryan Cranston, Greg Kinnear and Steve Buscemi pop up in the show and it’s been created by Ronald D Moore, of Battlestar Galactica fame.
