When the conversation comes up about which streaming services you use, you hardly hear anyone say "Amazon Prime." That's unfortunate, because there are some really good shows and hard to find movies on Prime.
Here are the shows I can't quit watching on Prime.
I absolutely love this series, and that's putting it lightly. I've gone through the entire first season three times now, and I'm about to start a fourth. I think it's the best show streaming, and yes I've seen 'The Mandalorian.'
If superheroes were real, this is probably what it would be like. The government trying to find ways to weaponize those with powers, corporations and management agencies making money off of the heroes' brands, and normal humans getting caught in the middle; usually ending poorly for the humans.
In fact, the heroes are for the most part self absorbed and concerned more with their personal brands than actually helping the human race.
Season 2 is supposedly coming 'mid-2020.'
Definitely not one for the kids. The language used isn't something you want your kid using at daycare, and the violence can be brutal at times. Still, this is one everyone should watch post bed-time.
The Best Of Groucho Marx
Taken from the 'You Bet Your Life' TV game show, each episode in the collection is regarded as some of Groucho's best work on the show.
Full disclosure, I'm a massive Marx Brothers fan. I've argued until I'm blue in the face that Groucho is the funniest and wittiest man to bless stage and screen.
Watching Groucho work his conversational magic is a blast. His wit and wordplay are what make me binge watch this over and over again. Plus, Amazon has been the only place I can find anything Marx Brothers related. Hooray for Captain Spaulding!
Take Jack the Ripper, Sherlock Holmes, and Grimm's Fairy Tales. Now mix them up, put them in a slum, and make a series out of it. That's basically how you get 'Carnival Row.'
Mythical and fairy tale creatures exist alongside humans, who use the creatures as servants and treat them as second class citizens. A series of gruesome murders take place, aimed at the creatures and it's up to the one friendly human investigator to find out what is going on.
It's gritty, uncomfortable at times, and I'm really enjoying it.
