Amazon's adaptation of Robert Kirkman, Ryan Ottley, and Cory Walker's superhero comic series isn't for the faint of heart. Invincible is full of gore, violence, swearing, and other adult content. A kids animated show, this ain't.

It's a slow burn to begin with – well, apart from episode 1's ending, which shocked viewers who haven't read the comics before. However, its subversion of superhero tropes, emotional story beats, and ensemble cast will keep your attention until things really start to pick up from episode 4, by which point you should be fully hooked.

Invincible season 2, whose first proper trailer revealed it'll make its bow in early November, and season 3 are currently in development. While a fourth season hasn't secretly been greenlit, it won't be a major surprise when it's eventually announced as Invincible is one of the best Prime Video series ever.

The Legend of Vox Machina

Set in the fictional Exandrian kingdom of Tal’Dorei, The Legend of Vox Machina tells the story of a band of mercenary misfits hired to eradicate an unnamed evil entity that’s plagued the realm. It isn't long, though, before the seven-strong group realize they've become embroiled in a battle against a far more sinister and potentially world-threatening enemy.

In our season 1 review of The Legend of Vox Machina, we said it retains lots of what the original online DnD campaign such a hit. It's hilarious, action-packed, emotional, and full of twists and turns. It's also pretty gruesome and horror-esque on occasion, so those of a grisly inclination will get a kick out of it as well. The original Critical Role cast have returned to voice their characters, while there's a whole slew of famous actors who cameo as other individuals in this fictional fantasy world.

Rosa Salazar's Alma sarcastically says she can't open a mysterious door in Undone season 2

Undone is a seriously underrated animated series. (Image credit: Amazon Studios)

From the acclaimed minds behind BoJack Horseman, Undone is a beautifully animated comedy-drama series that weaves multiple genres and themes together with stunning and emotive effect.

Rosa Salazar (Alita: Battle Angel) stars as Alma, a Texas-based millennial who's struggling to find purpose in her life. That is, until she's involved in a near-fatal car accident and finds out she has a new relationship with time itself. Infused with the ability to travel back (or forward) in time, Alma begins to develop her newfound abilities to get to the bottom of the death of her father Jacob (Better Call Saul's Bob Odenkirk). At least, that's the plan – providing her loved ones don't interfere and try to make out that her new powers are linked to the family's history of mental health.

The show's melding of rotoscoping animation and live-action motion-capture really sets it apart. Meanwhile, Undone's exploration of relationships, mental health, and themes surrounding altering the past are expertly and sensitively handled.

A League of Their Own

A League of Their Own is another great sports-based Prime Video TV series. (Image credit: Nicola Goode/Amazon Studios)

Based on the 1992 film of the same name, A League of Their Own tells the story of the Rockford Peaches, an all-female baseball league team that not only has to navigate the perils of the Second World War, but also the era's tormenting levels of misogyny and chauvinism.

The show primarily follows Abbi Jacobson's Carson and Chanté Adams' Max and their journeys to become professional players. But its study of other characters and their respective arcs, evocative themes, and thrilling baseball-based drama gives A League of Their Own plenty to work with. It's lacking in neither style or substance, which is a rarity for a sports-centric TV series. Unfortunately, though, Amazon has cancelled this highly-rated series after one season.

Abby and Dulcie stare at something awful off camera in Deadloch

Deadloch is an underrated comedy murder mystery show. (Image credit: Amazon Studios)

We suspect this eight-episode comedy detective series wasn't on your radar when it comes to the best Prime Video series. But it's certainly one to start off with if you're looking for something new from this sort of genre TV show.

Set in Tasmania, Deadloch follows two polar opposite investigators – Dulcie Collins (Kate Box) and Eddie Redcliffe (Madeleine Sami) – who are forced to work together to solve the mysterious death of one of the local townsfolk.

Thanks to some sharp, witty writing and two powerhouse comedic performances from Box and Sami, Deadloch is as satirically savage as it is dramatic. A tonally dark, yet equally hilarious, whodunnit that'll burrow its way into your mind and sit there for days.

Tye, Camille, Angie, and Quinn smile as they walk down the street in Harlem season 2

Harlem is a fantastic comedy series from the mind of Tracy Oliver. (Image credit: Emily V Aragones/Prime Video)

Tracy Oliver's latest comedy series earned rave reviews when it debuted on Prime Video in December 2021, so it's about time you stuck Harlem on your must-watch list.

The show follows a group of 30-something New York University alumni as they try to balance their work, love, and personal lives while living in – yep, you guessed it – Harlem. So far, so predictable, right? Not quite. Harlem's main cast are electrifyingly funny, and the manner in which they bounce off one another is reminiscent of some of best comedy character relationships of the last two decades. Fans of Insecure and Run the World will lap this up.

I'm a Virgo

I'm a Virgo was met with critical acclaim in late June. (Image credit: Amazon Studios)

A comedy series that's as absurd as it is creative. I'm a Virgo stars Jharrel Jerome as Cootie, a 13-foot-tall teenager who, for the first 19 years of his life, has been shielded from the world by his aunt and uncle. However, when a group of political activists accidentally stumble upon Cootie's *ahem* larger than life persona, he embarks on a surreal journey to find his place in the *double ahem* big, wide world.

An utterly bizarre but no less funny, heartfelt, and highly original series, I'm a Virgo is a knockout show from Sorry to Bother You's Boots Riley. It's a toweringly imaginative endeavour; something that many more streamers should absolutely take a chance on if similar projects fall into their lap.

James Corden is a divisive figure – you either think he's funny or not, and that's before he's seen getting into real world restaurant-based verbal spats.

With Mammals, though, it seems as if many (fans and critics alike) are agreeing that Corden really does have something about him. In this dark comedy drama, the host of US talk show The Late Late Show (and former Gavin and Stacey star) plays Jamie, a Michelin star chef whose life implodes when he finds out his pregnant wife Amadine – portrayed by Melia Kreilling – has secretly had multiple affairs with different men.

Mammals doesn't reinvent the genres it's associated with, but its emotive tale of swingers culture and black, at-times surreal humor – Tom Jones even makes a cameo – make it worth checking out.

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel

Rachel Brosnahan's Midge Maisel catches some rays in The Marvelous Mrs Maisel

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel tells the story of '50s housewife Miriam 'Midge' Maisel as she attempts to become the best female stand-up comic in the US. After her husband confesses he's been having an affair, 'Midge' drunkenly gets on stage at a comedy club and discovers that she's utterly hilarious. 

In a time when women aren't encouraged to be publicly funny, Midge pursues her new-found comedic talent in the male-dominated stand up comedy world. But, unbeknownst to 'Midge', the journey is far from a straightforward one.

A show filled with as much heart, and dramatic twists and turns, as jokes, The Marvelous Mrs Maisel is a killer Prime Video series. No wonder it won so many awards during its five-season run.

Dre looks concerned as she stands in a room in Swarm on Prime Video

Swarm is a satirical comedy-horror from the mind of Donald Glover. (Image credit: Quantrell D. Colbert/Prime Video)

Donald Glover and Janine Nabers satirically and horrifyingly poke fun at the culture surrounding fandoms in Swarm, an disturbing drama-cum-dark comedy that'll occupy your mind for days.

Dominique Fishback (Judas and the Black Messiah) plays Dre, a young woman obsessed with a Beyonce-like pop superstar who has her own diehard fandom known as 'The Swarm' (anyone else getting 'Bey Hive vibes?). To say anymore would be to spoil Swarm's most shocking, hilarious, and suspense-filled moments. Rest assured, though, fans of Glover and Fishback will lap up this wild-but-no-less important tale on celebrity addiction and anti-hero culture.

Andy Allo's Nora and Zainab Johnson's Aleesha look unimpressed on a trip out of the office in Upload season 2

Upload is a whimsical, heart-warming, and at-times dark sci-fi series. (Image credit: Liane Hentscher/Amazon Studios)

Set 15 years in the future, Upload tells the tale of Nathan Brown (Robbie Amell), a computer programmer who's mysteriously murdered and uploaded to a 'virtual afterlife' location called Lake View. 

As he adjusts to his new life, Nathan finds himself romantically drawn to his customer service angel Nora Antony (Andy Allo), despite Nathan still technically being involved with his still-alive girlfriend Ingrid Kannerman (Allegra Edwards). It isn't long, too, before Nathan and Nora begin to unravel the wider mystery surrounding his death.

If that all sounds a bit dramatic and bleak, don't fret: Upload is one of the funnier Prime Video series out there, one that straddles multiple genres including comedy, drama, whodunnit, and horror. It also offers an intriguing look into the real world's technological-based future, metaverse and all. Season 3 arrives on October 20.

Best crime series on Prime Video


Jack Reacher and Roscoe Conklin study a map at night time in Prime Video's Reacher TV show

Alan Ritchson (Titans) stars as the titular character – aka Jack Reacher – a drifter owning few possessions following his departure from the armed forces, Reacher arrives in Margrave, Georgia at the exact moment that the small US town is reeling from its first major crime in 20 years. Somehow, Reacher is wrongly framed for the crime and, following his arrest, agrees to help the authorities get the bottom of the case in exchange for his freedom. Given his army expertise and his hulking frame, it seems that those responsible picked the wrong guy to pin the crime on.

It's definitely one to check out if you're a fan of action and mystery thrillers. It also became the first Prime Video series ever to top Nielsen's streaming charts. Reacher season 2 is due out in December.

Three Pines

Three Pines is a gripping crime thriller that'll hook you instantly. (Image credit: Laurent Guerin/Amazon Studios)

Based on Louise Penny's Chief Inspector Gamache novel series, this Canadian crime thriller has earned plenty of acclaim since its December 2022 launch.

Alfred Molina (Spider-Man: No Way Home) stars as Armand Gamache, who travels to the titular Eastern Township to investigate a series of grisly murders. There, he's forced to confront demons – including his own – from all corners and unearth long buried secrets that the town's population have hidden away.

As detective tales go, Three Pines isn't a ground-breaking world beater. But, thanks to Molina's riveting, soulful performance and some surprising twists and turns, it's a show that delivers a largely fascinating whodunnit – all set in a picturesque snowy location. Unfortunately, Three Pines was cancelled after one season.

Daisy Jones and the Six

Based on Taylor Jenkins Reid's best-selling novel of the same name, Daisy Jones & The Six was a massive hit for Amazon.

The 10-part series tells the fictional story of the titular rock band, whose stratospheric rise through the LA music scene to global megastars coincides with the addition of Daisy Jones (Riley Keough) to their ranks. At the height of their success, though, the band suddenly split – much like real-life rock band Fleetwood Mac, who inspired Reid's book, did in the 1970s. Daisy Jones & The Six, then, reveals all about the TV series' band's rapid rise and fall in dramatically explosive fashion.

With numerous catchy tunes, a fantastic cast – Keough and Sam Claflin being the notable standpoints – and plenty of music-infused drama and relationship betrayals, Daisy Jones & The Six has unsurprisingly captivated viewers.

Dead Ringers

Dead Ringers is a superb psychological thriller series. (Image credit: Prime Video)

If there was ever any doubt about how extraordinarily talented Rachel Weisz is, Dead Ringers proves it once and for all.

Amazon's TV remake of David Cronenberg's hauntingly good psychological thriller film (itself based on the book of the same name) is terrific. Weisz plays twin sisters Elliot and Beverly Mantle – gynaecologists who share everything from lovers to drugs and pushing the boundaries of medical ethics.

On the surface, it doesn't sound overly appealing, but there's more to Dead Ringers than meets the eye. Weisz is absolutely electric as she inhabits dual roles, while the story's biggest shocks and turning points will alarm and entertain you in equal measure.

Loosely inspired by real-world events, Hunters tells the tale of a group of Nazi hunters, who uncover a conspiracy involving a number of escaped Nazi officers trying to install a Fourth Reich in the heart of 1970s America.

Hunters' first season drew plenty of viewers, not least because it starred legendary actor Al Pacino in his first-ever TV role. While we enjoyed what Hunters season 1 had to offer, its ending proved to be extremely divisive – and, in the two years since its debut, other Prime Video originals have overtaken it as must-watch Amazon exclusives. Still, with Hunters season 2 out now, it retains its position as one of the best Prime Video series, in our view.

Delroy and Mattey in Prime Video's Jungle look in awe at something off camera in a red lit room

A story told from multiple perspectives, Jungle follows the connected lives of several London-based strangers who struggle for survival in the UK's capital. At its core, Jungle is a show styled on Darwin's 'survival of the fittest' theory, albeit a series that trains its plethora of narratives through the lens of the rap, drill, grime, and hip-hop genres.

Creators Junior Okoli and and Chas Appeti have captured the unseen world of the backwaters of London; regions where communities govern themselves and where every action has consequences. With its signature blend of music and dialogue, creatively ambitious cinematography, and timeless tale about the complexities of humanity, Jungle isn't a show that should be dismissed so easily.

The Night Manager

The Night Manager tells the story of Jonathan Pine (Loki actor Tom Hiddleston), an ex-British soldier and the titular night manager who's pulled back into the world he left behind. Tasked by Foreign Office task force leader Angela Burr (Oscar winner Olivia Colman) to infiltrate the inner circle of illegal arms dealer Richard Roper (Hugh Laurie), Pine soon finds himself in over his head in an international political chess match where nobody is who they seem.

A tightly paced, thrill-a-minute miniseries complete with towering performances from Hiddleston, Laurie, Colman, Tom Hollander (Major Lance Corcoran), and Elizabeth Debicki (Jemima Marshall). Sign us up to this John le Carré TV adaptation immediately.

The Summer I Turned Pretty

A coming-of-age romantic drama that's captured the hearts of the 18-25 demographic, The Summer I Turned Pretty is a solidly charming and sweet young adult series.

Lola Tung plays Isabel 'Belly' Conklin who, on the eve of her 16th birthday, reunites with the Fisher brothers Conrad and Jeremiah after a few summers apart. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the trio become involved in a love triangle, which alters the dynamics between the three main characters.

A show that'll induce plenty of eye-rolling from older viewers, The Summer I Turned Pretty knows its audience and fully leans into romance-laced drama tropes. Even so, it's one of Prime Video's biggest hitters, so it must be doing something right, even if its second season wasn't as strong as the first.

Best documentary series on Prime Video

Clarkson's Farm

Clarkson's Farm is a fantastic watch for fans of a certain disposition. (Image credit: Amazon Prime Video)

This Prime Video original sees Jeremy Clarkson try his hand at being a farmer. Yes, its premise is that simple.

In 2008, Clarkson bought a 1,000-acre plot of land, including Curdle Hill Farm, in Oxfordshire in the UK after its former caretaker retired. Clarkson, in his infinite wisdom, decides to try farming the land himself – and it goes about as well as you'd expect.

Clarkson's Farm is as ludicrous as it sounds. It also seems pretty scripted for a comedy-styled docuseries, but it's actually a decent watch. Clarkson's rapport with his helpers – most notably Kaleb Cooper, the show's breakout star – is endearing, humorous, and at-times maddening. But, if you're a fan of Clarkson (not many people are these days, admittedly) or amusing documentary-style shows, this is one to check out.

KSI: In Real Life

Prime Video has made a name for itself in the documentary space with its fantastic All or Nothing series. KSI: In Real Life, though, might be one of its most fascinating docuseries to date.

It follows the world-famous YouTuber-turned-influencer as he prepares to release his second rap album. However, while KSI is riding high in the public eye, his private life has taken a beating – including the fraying of his closest relationships – which forces the global megastar to re-evaluate his life.

This warts-and-all docuseries offers a compelling behind-the-scenes look at KSI's life. From his humble beginnings in Watford to the unprecedented fame that followed, In Real Life is captivatingly emotional and thought-provoking. KSI fans will eat this up, while more casual documentary fans will also enjoy the series' exploration of fame, the internet, and overcoming trauma.

Good Omens

Good Omens is a top-tier Prime Video show. (Image credit: Amazon)

Before he passed away in 2015, Terry Pratchett reportedly made Neil Gaiman promise he'd adapt Good Omens into a TV series. 

Gaiman delivered on that front – and the result is an addictive, bonkers, and heart-warming tale about good and evil, friendship, demons, angels, and a future-gazing witch. It's brilliantly British, has one of the most stellar casts imaginable, and can be binged in one weekend – or one sitting if you can't face waiting a whole night for the final few episodes. 

It brings a few fresh characters and twists to the story, but is also faithful enough to the book to give those who have been fans for nearly thirty years a real treat.

The Rings of Power

The Rings of Power is a fan-favorite fantasy epic. (Image credit: Prime Video)

Set during Middle-earth's Second Age, The Rings of Power tells the multi-narrative tale of the forging of the titular rings, Sauron's ambitiously evil masterplan to become the world's dictatorial ruler, and Middle-earth's various races uniting to stop him.

That's the basic premise, anyway. There's more to Amazon's Lord of the Rings than that – it's a majestic, sweeping, and epic fantasy series that long time Tolkienites and Lord of the Rings newcomers will thoroughly enjoy. Simply put, it's one of the best Prime Video series around.

The Rings of Power season 2 wrapped filming before the actors strike began. Its second season to closely follow the story told by way of The Lord of the Rings novels and J.R.R. Tolkien's wider works, too.

The Wheel of Time

The Wheel of Time is a stunning fantasy TV adaptation. (Image credit: Amazon Studios)

Based on Robert Jordan's beloved book series, The Wheel of Time is a fantasy show that blends the best of Game of Thrones, The Witcher, and The Lord of the Rings.

Rosamund Pike (I Care A Lot, Gone Girl) plays Moiraine, a powerful sorceress whose quest to find the Dragon Reborn – a prophesised champion who can defeat the Dark One – leads her to the small village known as the Two Rivers. When Moiraine and her Warder companion Lan Mandragoran (Daniel Henney) are forced to rescue five of the village's young adults from the Dark One's forces, they realize that one of this quintet is the so-called Dragon Reborn. Cue an epic quest to work out who this ancient warrior is and whether they'll be able to save the world or not.

Expect plenty of drama, R-rated violence, a dashing of humor, and plenty of fantastical elements that'll wow and shock you. The Wheel of Time season 2 is out now, plus a third season of one of the best Prime Video series has already been announced.

It's that, crossed with Game of Thrones, just with a touch less rumpy pumpy. You've got six series of this bloody and addictive Norse adventure to plunder as you watch a simple farmer transform into a fearsome fighter ransacking European countries for treasure. With Netflix continuing the Vikings journey with its Vikings: Valhalla spin-off series, now is the perfect time to check one of the best Prime Video series out.

Arguably the best sci-fi show since Battlestar Galatica, The Expanse is based on the series of novels by James S. A. Corey, the pen name of authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck. 

It's set in a future where humans have colonised most of the solar system, but there are big divisions between the occupants of Earth, Mars, and 'Belters', who reside on space stations beyond the asteroid belt. It's full of politics, heart-wrenching and emotional stories, and some of the most breath-taking scenes of outer space we've ever seen. If you're a fan of sci-fi, you'll love this.

Outer Range

Billed as a sci-fi mystery thriller, Outer Range stars Josh Brolin (Avengers: Infinity War, Dune) as Royal Abbott, a Wyoming-based rancher fighting to keep his land out of the hands of a rival herder.

When a mysterious black hole suddenly appears on the Abbott estate, Royal uses the seemingly infinite void to his advantage – including disposing of a body of one of his rival's sons following a tragic accident. But, when a drifter called Autumn (Imogen Poots) catches Royal in the act, the head of the Abbott family must fight for his family, to maintain their secret, and keep Autumn – who seems to have supernatural ties to the black hole – on side as his foes (and the police) close in around him.

Despite its often muddled and weirdly paced plot, it deserves to be part of our best Prime Video series article due to some powerhouse performances, its curious mystery, and foreboding atmosphere. A second season is on the way, too.
