What are you watching on Amazon Prime?

I always forget about the access I have to shows and movies on Amazon Prime. Between Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max and others, Amazon seems to get neglected. I think the last shows I watched on Amazon were the excellent caper and family drama Sneaky Pete and the surprisingly involving (and not Bollywood-fied) Made In Heaven, an Indian drama about a gay wedding planner and his business partner and Trannieparent.

So, which series on Amazon Prime are worth checking out?

The Boys. Gruesome, disturbing, engaging. Can’t get enough.

Before that, EKATERINA. Amazing Russian series about Catherine the great. You can watch all 3 thru prime but the latter two are run via IMDb and have random commercials.

All the gayest shit I can find. After weeks and weeks of being home with internet porn, I’m actually interested in seeing a romantic story unfold between two men with a plot and storylines and moving performances more than I’m interested in watching them fuck each other’s brains out. Not to say that nudity isn’t appreciated, it is; something tasteful is nice that isn’t just closeups of their gaping holes and shaved balls. I don’t have a list handy, but they should be easy to find. The European ones with English subtitles actually happen to be my favorite. And I don’t even like foreign films!

I'm watching all the old horror classics, which Amazon Prime seems to have in abundance. I've seen The Quatermass Xperiment I and II, The Curse of Frankenstein, House on Haunted Hill, Dracula, The Mummy, The Abominable Snowman and X The Unknown. All are a lot of fun. This is Amazon Prime U.K., which might have a different offering to the U.S.

I just watched Judy last night (on Prime). I thought the acting was good (especially by Rufus Sewell and Finn Whittrock), but the screenplay was weak. I wish they had delved into her early career more instead of making it mostly about drug addiction and decline. There is surely something more uplifting to say about Ms. Garland's life.

We've been watching The Expanse, which originally aired on SyFy, but was acquired by Amazon. About halfway through season 2.

Because I'm a whore for Stellan Skarsgard, I watched his BBC cop drama "River" from a few years ago. Silly in the manner of all BBC cop dramas, but enjoyable.

It'd be nice if Amazon would make their old classic films easier to find. There needs to be a 'Classics' genre rather than lumping all of the oldies in with everything else.

[quote]Bosch

For the past few years - this year being the obvious exception - Amazon holds a fantastic For Your Consideration installation in L.A where they showcase their shows. One half of the bottom floor is always dedicated to "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" the other half of the bottom floor for "The Man in the High Castle", top floors have rooms for various shows and in the entrance on the wall hangs a few pictures of poor "Bosch', their red-headed stepchild series.

My favorite Amazon shows are "The Boys", "Hunters", "Goliath", "Upload". Enjoyed the first season of "Hanna", but the second season didn't hold my interest; "Alex Rider" filled the "Hanna" void.

by Anonymousreply 2309/26/2020

I also just watched Fatal Attraction on Prime (in a double feature with The Hand That Rocked The Cradle). Glenn is miles better than everything else about that film.

Speaking of, Cradle is really fantastic--a movie that gets knocked off on Lifetime in the last few decades, but was given the superlative treatment here. It's an unrepentantly nasty film, with digital rape, graphic miscarriage and hysterectomy, and a suicide all in the first 10 minutes.

DeMornay deserved a 1992 Oscar nomination (go back and look at that year, and see if she wouldn't have been a better choice than Michelle Pfeiffer in Love Field or Catherine Deneuve for Indochine).

We binged our way through every episode and the movie of Downton Abbey, and greatly enjoyed it. We then went with it's even more highly regarded predecessor, and watched the entirety of Upstairs Downstairs. It is unquestionably very high caliber, especially the 3rd series dealing with WWI. We've now gone even more highbrow, and are making our way through Brideshead Revisited. It's hard to imagine that anything could top it. It is stunningly good. Collectively, the three series have been a highlight of all these months of lock down. (I should mention that all three are available to us through an Amazon channel subscription to BritBox, which costs us just a few dollars a month.)

R16, In my country Prime contracts are only monthly, so you can sign up for 1 month and then cancel, and rinse and repeat as often as you like. You can drop in, binge the new season of The Boys or Mrs Maisel, and then you're out. Cost, about $10.

I'm still waiting for a list of titles from R4.

by Anonymousreply 3509/27/2020

I haven’t watched a lot of recent series on Amazon and I even canceled Netflix because I don’t even know where to start. I never thought I’d actually want advertisements, but by not doing commercials and talk show circuits, I never know what these outlets offer. They just put up title cards of new series and for some reason I am never inclined to push play and watch something I have never heard of and don’t know the premise of.

The majority of Netflix series I have seen just have not been well written and so I gave up on it. I think the last I watched and enjoyed on there was Sabrina and the last season was pretty bad.

Re Amazon, I liked The Man in the High Castle, I like Maisel although its episodes are kind of hit or miss for me. But the firestick is such a mishmash. There are Amazon originals that I know nothing about mixed with old movies, plugin apps for broadcast networks and premium apps, some TV shows and movies are free and some are not. It’s overwhelming.

I know I sound ancient! I am 42. I’ve seen several commercials for the new ABC series Big Sky that in 15 seconds 1) explain the premise; 2) show me Ryan Phillippe; 3) tell me it’s produced by David E. Kelley. SOLD. I will give it a shot based on those ingredients. Why can’t the streaming services do this?

When Netflix was a new DVD-by-mail service, they offered tons of classic movies and tons of independent movies, including gay ones. I saw good-enough movies such as Trick and House of Yes through Netflix, but Netflix also taught me that just because they involve gay themes is not reason enough to watch an unwatchably bad movie. And almost all of the gay-themed indie movies were unwatchably bad, unfortunately.

Have to agree with poster 104 about Tales from the Loop. At first I was confused about where the series was going. But as the stories developed you get drawn in. What I liked was that the stories stayed with you, even the heartbreaking ones. The gay birdwatcher was an interesting touch and the Island story was really touching. All the episodes were really well directed. I believe the last one was directed by Jodie Foster. The series is worth a watch if you want a thought provoking genre.

So this thread has confirmed Prime is a waste. Nothing mentioned here has been worthwhile IMO. Mrs Maisel has some interesting period costumes and sets - but it’s chick flick and really not that interesting. The Boys is mediocre writing and mediocre to bad acting - with unnecessary and stupid gore and violence. Horror films do nothing for me - which seems to be about 50% of suggestions.

Fleabag has been the ONLY thing I’ve liked in a year of watching Prime. I held on for the new Borat - and was disappointed. The reality show of Trump makes his whole schtick dated. We are LIVING a Borat film every day with Trump and this campaign - and it’s not funny any more. And the whole daughter relationship story was stupid, pointless and unfunny. Even the Giuliani “climax” was a let down - basically he was tucking in his shirt. Yawn.

I’m giving Prime until the end of the year then getting rid of it. May just do Hulu or one of the basic TV apps.

Cut Snake...sexy leads. Aussie films have their own quirks which makes them so compelling.

Can anyone recommend some good British historical dramas that are free on Amazon? I've already seen all the popular "hits" like Downton Abbey and Pride and Prejudice.

Vanity Fair wasn't horrible. I wasn't familiar with it but apparently other adaptations are better.

You might want to consider doing a search for "hidden gems on Amazon Prime". There are YOUTUBE channels called "WATCH THIS NOW" and "FLICK CONNECTION" which sometimes list under-the-radar good horror and suspense movies on Amazon Prime.

I wish more people would sample Undone. I've never seen anything like it.

by Anonymousreply 12410/31/2020

Ok - so watched Upload. It was good and unique. Good recommendation. I’ll try Undone.

by Anonymousreply 12511/01/2020

You should mention that Undone is animated. No thanks.

Yesterday, I watched "Eight on the Lam," a mediocre Bob Hope film from 1967 with Jill St. John.

Despite its few laughs, I found it comforting because it and its ilk were what was playing on TV when I grew up on the 1970s.

I tried watching the UK version of Queer as Folk and cringed myself into oblivion.

by Anonymousreply 12811/01/2020

R128 the UK version of QUEER AS FOLK was astronomically better than the US version. The original UK version sometimes was so real it was painful. The US version was cliched and hackneyed...lazy writing and the characters had no arcs.

Borat and 1932’s Frankenstein. Enjoyed both.

Requires an AMC subscription ($8.99 additional/month), but the "Deutschland '83" series is great. Three series dramatizing the East/West German spy games in 1983, 1986 and 1989. "Deutschland '83" sadly isn't currently available, but '86 is, and '89 has just started broadcasting.

R131, the lead actor is hot and has a scrumptious ass.

by Anonymousreply 13211/01/2020

R132: Jonas Nay, yes. Also a great cross-section of German TV and film stars in the series.

Maria Schrader, who plays the evil East German spy aunt, directed "Unorthodox" last year.

I loved the first 3 seasons of Grantchester with the gorgeous James Norton.

Deutschland 83 and 86 are both on Hulu, FYI. Highly recommend.

by Anonymousreply 13511/01/2020

You can still watch Deutschland 86 on Prime for free (if you are a Prime member). Deutschland 83, which I remember liking a few years ago, is now $19.99 for the season (eight episodes). Deutschland 89 is free with a seven-day free trial membership to AMC+ on Prime Video Channels.

Hmmm...I wonder if they skip the commercials.

I really enjoyed the recent adaptation of Emma. Wasn't that familiar with the story at all before, apart from having seen Clueless years ago. It's a beautifully made film, and there's a gratuitous rear shot of Mr Knightley in the beginning if that's your thing.

by Anonymousreply 13711/01/2020

Shows how much attention I pay to things R136; I watched and enjoyed Deutschland 83 a few years ago, had no idea they had done a sequel in 86, let alone an 89!

Amazon has “black box “ movies — part semi horror, part semi twilight zoney, part just weird. I’ve seen The Lie, Nocturne and something else. It’s watchable and I hate committing to a series

I'm rewatching House MD on Amazon now. Still love it.

Just another old-people formula show. Yuck. At least "Murder, She Wrote" had interesting old-time guest stars.

R141, Murder, She Wrote doesn't have Jesse Spencer's flawless complexion.
