Introduction

While Netflix is busy pumping out more shows than any one person could watch (probably), Amazon Prime Video has remained the place to go for a few of the best shows around. Trouble is, navigating the service’s labyrinthine menus can make finding the right series a pain. We’re here to help. Below are our favorite Amazon series—all included with your Prime subscription.

Bosch

Adapting Michael Connelly’s series of LA noir crime novels, Bosch stars Titus Welliver in the title role of Detective Hieronymus “Harry” Bosch. A compellingly grimy, cynical show with none of the gloss and ridiculous theatrics of NCIS and its ilk, Bosch leans into old-fashioned police work with plenty of political chicanery for good measure. Each of the seven seasons deals with its own big case, but there’s an overarching one as Bosch investigates a cold case: the murder of his mother when he was a child. It doesn’t redefine crime dramas, but it’s paced perfectly for a solid binge as the threads of each case come together, making for a superior crime drama that any fan of the genre will enjoy.

Reacher

Amazon has a way with action thrillers focused on military tough guys who answer to “Jack R”—see Jack Ryan, also making this guide—and this sharp adaptation of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher novels continues the trend. Alan Ritchson (Titans, Fast X) stars as Reacher, a former military policeman now drifting from town to town, trying to live a quiet life but unable to avoid conflict. Season one finds him accused of a murder he didn’t commit, while the newly arrived second sees Reacher drawn into a vast conspiracy when someone starts picking off the members of his old army unit of special investigators. It’s pulpy at times, but bombastic action and surprisingly sharp dialog help it punch above its weight.

Invincible

When Mark Grayson inherits the incredible powers and abilities of his father, Omni-Man, he sets out to follow in his footsteps as new costumed superhero Invincible. Things do not go according to plan. After a shocking twist left the first season on a major cliffhanger—save for for the rather brilliant Invincible: Atom Eve one-shot plugging the gap and revealing the origins of a key character—this long-awaited return finds Mark’s world upended. Now, he’s trying to escape his father’s shadow rather than live up to his legacy. Luckily, he’s not on his own, with a new generation of heroes rising to help guard the globe. A brilliantly animated adaptation of the hit Image comic book by writer Robert Kirkman and artists Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley, Invincible’s more mature take on superheroes allows it to do something Marvel’s and DC’s characters rarely do: grow up.





Paragraph 1:
I recently discovered a treasure trove of amazing shows on Amazon Prime. From thrilling dramas to side-splitting comedies, there’s something for everyone on this platform. One of my personal favorites is “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” which follows the journey of a 1950s housewife who becomes a stand-up comedian. The writing is sharp, the costumes are gorgeous, and the performances are top-notch. And if you’re in the mood for something a little darker, “The Boys” is a must-watch. This gritty superhero series offers a fresh take on the genre and keeps you on the edge of your seat with its intense action sequences and thought-provoking plotlines.

Paragraph 2:
As a true crime enthusiast, I was thrilled to find an abundance of gripping documentaries and docuseries on Amazon Prime. “The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst” is a standout, offering a chilling look at the real-life crimes of a wealthy heir. The twists and turns in this series kept me glued to the screen, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it for days. On a lighter note, “Fleabag” is a delightful comedy-drama that left me in stitches while also tugging at my heartstrings. Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s performance is nothing short of genius, and the writing is some of the wittiest I’ve ever encountered. There truly is something for everyone in the vast and varied catalog of shows on Amazon Prime.
