There’s a lot of opinions when it comes to streaming services. Netflix dominates as they just seem to have new content all the time but Amazon Prime is deserving of your attention too! They have some really great shows. It’s also worth mentioning that if you have an Eir bundle at home you’re entitled to 12 months free Amazon Prime Video subscription.
If you have Amazon here as some TV shows to watch…
We’ve mentioned this previously as the show was very hyped in the US, but Cruel Summer is more than worth a watch!
After Kate Wallis disappears without a trace, awkward outcast Jeanette Turner seems to take over her life.
Cruel Summer is available on Amazon Prime Video in the UK and Ireland now.
PANIC is a new Amazon Prime Video one-hour drama series, written and created by Lauren Oliver (based on her bestselling novel). It takes place in a small Texas town, where every summer the graduating seniors compete in a series of challenges, winner takes all, which they believe is their one and only chance to escape their circumstances and make their lives better. But this year, the rules have changed — the pot of money is larger than ever and the game has become even more dangerous. The players will come face to face with their deepest, darkest fears and be forced to decide how much they are willing to risk in order to win.
Think of The Society meets The Hunger Games!
This Is Us
I honestly cannot tell you how much I adore this show; it just like a big hug but so complex, layered and gripping. I’ve told so many people about This Is Us and anyone who takes me up on the recommendation becomes obsessed with it too.
Kevin, Kate and Randall, three siblings, go through unique personal struggles at different intervals of life as they try to find happiness and get over a tragedy in their past.
All 5 seasons of This Is Us is available on Amazon Prime in the UK and Ireland. The 6th and final season is coming soon (sob!) and will air weekly.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Another great Amazon original is The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, a slight warning about the language though!
From the Creator of Gilmore Girls, ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ tells the story of Miriam “Midge” Maisel a woman who has everything she’s ever wanted—the perfect husband, two kids, and an elegant Upper West Side apartment. But her perfect life suddenly takes an unexpected turn and Midge discovers a previously unknown talent—one that changes her life forever.
Season 1 is great, the other two are ok. I’m hoping season 4 picks up again but as a whole the show is just great!
