If you haven’t already dived into the world of Amazon Video, you are seriously missing out. For anyone who refuses to pay the exorbitant costs of cable, most television shows are now streaming online. It puts Netflix and Hulu to the test with its up-to-date television and movie selection, even heralding new original programming worth a gander.
Unlike Netflix, Amazon has a habit of getting the rights to rent out brand new TV shows from other networks shortly after they are aired. This is great for anyone who doesn’t want to pay for cable and wants to get an Amazon Prime account instead. It comes with a 30-day free trial
This sharp and moving action drama doesn’t take its time to explore the dire effects of a zombie apocalypse, introducing new characters into the realm of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Before the new season comes back around you should check this out!
2. Hand of God
Ron Perlman is a born again judge who’s wrapped up in multiple murders and unraveling the mystery behind his comatose son. What’s not to like? But, seriously, it’s entertaining and short enough to give it a go.
3. Mr. Robot
One of the best new shows on television just got easy to download. This show lives and breathes Guy Fawkes rebellions and brings hacker geekery to primetime…..the right way. Meaning there are no beeps and blips every time someone uses a computer, the computer screen shows actual computerese instead of gobbledygook, and
Based on a novel, it’s an incredibly well-produced romance novel slash time travelling mystery based on the magical powers of a stonehengey type thing. There’s also a good amount of sexy nakedness. This is a little more for the female audience but carries the guys easily with the sci-fi, blarney beards, 12-foot beer mugs and boobs.
Whether you’ve been putting it off or just want to catch up before season 6 comes out, Game of Thrones is a sure thing when it comes to action, adventure and magic fantasy lands with dragons and stuff. It’s also a good way to be built up only to be devastated when your favorite character meets a fate you far worse than expected. For some reason this seems to be the successful driving force behind the show, and you won’t stop watching once you start!
6. Orphan Black
Nobody is really ready for this show. It depicts what things might be like if there were a secret experimental cloning organization running around the world doing crazy shit. There are new characters in almost every episode and the old characters never overplay. A must-watch for sci-fi enthusiasts.
This cold-war era period drama takes spy movie to the next level. The two main characters are masters of disguise, wiretapping, picking locks, social engineering and various other awesome back-stabbing skills they teach you in the KGB. It successfully covers ground that no other movies or TV shows have been willing to cover in recent years, that of the overplayed 80s soviet espionage story….a story we typically only saw the American side of for two decades of action films.
With the new season just around the corner, why not brush up on the hit horror anthology from the beginning?
If only this show were aired multiple times a year.. Better Call Saul picks up where Breaking Bad left off with the backstory of notoriously crooked attorney Saul Goodman.
A modern day cowboy cop show that ultimately went nowhere but is totally fun to watch.
When it comes to comic book TV shows, Heroes kept it real through the mid-2000s. The infamous WGA Writers’ Strike in 2007 hurt the development and in turn the ratings of this deeply character-driven superhero petri dish of a story. The production is top-notch, from visual to sound and direction overall, and the narration gives a storybook quality that forces the show to stand out from the others that came before.
