    16 Amazon Prime Shows That Are Totally Worth The Watch

    Binge like your life depended on it.

    1. Fringe

    Fox

    "It’s one of the best shows I’ve ever seen and I’ve yet to meet someone else who has seen it. It was the perfect balance of sci-fi and detective drama. The first few episodes all had plot lines that I had never seen done before and the more you watched, the better the overall plot got." —maryamscookies

    2. Sneaky Pete

    Amazon

    "First off, Giovanni Ribisi is fantastic. Second, it was created by Bryan Cranston. And lastly, it has suspense, intrigue, drama, and is told in such a fascinating manner. You're missing out if you don't watch it. Also, Ethan Embry is in it too. How can you go wrong? You can't. That's the answer." —booknerd13

    3. Mozart in the Jungle

    Amazon

    "Gael Garcia Bernal plays the extravagant Maestro of the New York Symphony. The series is filled with fun and weird characters who explore classical music in a sexy and cool way. I've never seen it portrayed that way. Everybody I tell about the show loves it and the cast is impressive, as well." —karlsels

    4. Hanna

    Amazon

    "It's based off of the 2011 film of the same name. I just binged the series and it was fucking phenomenal. The first episode was a little rough, but it picked up speed and intrigue very quickly." —maddieshepp

    5. The Man in the High Castle

    Amazon

    "It has strong underground followings but you never hear people talk about it. Even if it takes a little while to get into, this show is definitely worth the watch."

    6. Fleabag

    BBC

    "It needs to be discussed. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is extraordinary in front of and behind the camera for this show. It’s funny, sad, realistic, outlandish, and just so damn compelling. Please watch it people!" —etaylor2537

    7. The Americans

    FX

    "Holy bananas what an excellent drama! I usually watch comedies, but this show was so great. It's about Russian spies living in America during the height of the Cold War. It stars Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell." —robinc410d248f3

    8. Grimm

    NBC

    "It's a show loosely based on Grimm's Fairy Tales!" —rebeccar4efa09d64

    9. True Blood

    HBO

    "It’s been off the air for a few years, but the humor is fantastic and the characters are even better! Plus, Alexander Skarsgård plays a vampire, need I say more?"

    10. Chuck

    NBC

    "The show is amazing! It’s got everything to appease anybody: comedy, action, romance, drama and an absolute killer soundtrack! I recommend this show to everyone. It’s got the best characters and if you follow the show’s actors on social media, you’ll see their interactions and they’re just like family it’s amazing."

    11. Merlin

    BBC One

    "I watched it when it first came out and just recently started to rewatch it. I forgot how much I enjoyed it. I love the relationship between Merlin and Arthur. They have so many funny moments together and many heartbreaking ones too. Their friendship is pure and heartwarming." —jessicas46b15081f

    12. Hannibal

    NBC

    "I was a huge fan of the TV show and was upset when it got cancelled. I heard that it might come back, so there's still hope!" —laurenm47bcf7cdd

    13. Orphan Black

    BBC America

    "It ended a few years back, but it deserves so much praise. Tatiana Maslany is phenomenal at playing most of the lead roles on the show and making it incredibly easy to forget it's all one person. The show ran for exactly how long it was meant to and wrapped up every storyline and character perfectly. Not to mention, the brilliant way the show covers identity, science, cloning, and family."

    14. Psych

    USA

    "The show is so fun and it takes crime to a hilarious new level! It’s really long and has many seasons, but I flew through it because it always had me on the edge of my seat!" —vvlovesfood

    15. In the Flesh

    BBC

    "It's about zombies, discrimination, friends, family, community, and gay rights. It handles modern day issues in a non-provocative way that everyone can enjoy."

    16. Animal Kingdom

    TNT

    "It's SOOO GOOD! After 10 minutes of watching it, I was interested, and then I went on to binge the whole thing in like 2 weeks. I don't think they have a single character (main or minor) that doesn't feel completely fleshed out in their story and personality. I also love that the storylines don't follow any sort of typical TV formula and have moments that you really don't see coming. I've said it before on here, but TNT has clearly shelled out money to get some good writers for their shows and they are long overdue for some recognition." —bauxjangles
