We have been chilling with Netflix for most part of the year, and have ran out of shows to binge watch. Actually, that’s not true. I still have a list to watch on Netflix, but decided to change flavours with Amazon Prime. Some of you asked for recommendations, so here it goes – 6 shows that I have watched on Amazon Prime and loved enough to recommend.
The Bold Type
The show is inspired by the life of “Cosmopolitan” editor in chief, Joanna Coles. The show is a glimpse into the outrageous lives and loves of those responsible for a global women’s magazine. Alongside are two other characters – a social media genius who’s in a relationship with a Muslim lesbian, and an executive secretary who has a serious talent for fashion.
Hands down one of the best shows on Amazon Prime. The Best!
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
The series stars Rachel Brosnahan as the eponymous Miriam “Midge” Maisel, a housewife in 1958 New York City who discovers she has a knack for stand-up comedy. She comes from a jewish family, and the series has a whole lot of religious anecdotes that are hilarious.
It is very different from anything that I have watched recently. Set in 1950, funny, stunning fashion and binge worthy.
A sci-fi anthology series with stand-alone episodes based on the works of Philip K. Dick. Very similar to Black Mirror in terms of concept and storylines, but with more sex scenes in one episode than in all of Black Mirror. This show really pushes the envelope with regards to sexual content.
I do like the crazy, just not with dinner. Watch if you liked Black Mirror. And watch Black Mirror first if you haven’t already.
The iron-fisted Akhandanand Tripathi is a millionaire carpet exporter and the mafia don of Mirzapur. His son, Munna, is an unworthy, power-hungry heir who will stop at nothing to inherit his father’s legacy. An incident at a wedding procession forces him to cross paths with Ramakant Pandit, an upstanding lawyer, and his sons, Guddu and Bablu. It snowballs into a game of ambition, power and greed that threatens the fabric of this lawless city.
It is Amazon’s version of Sacred Games, and quite nice.
The morbid, delusional vibe from Electric Dreams continues. Plum Kettle is a ghostwriter for the editor of one of New York’s hottest fashion magazines. Struggling with self-image and fed up with how she’s treated by her boss and society, Plum sets out on a wildly complicated road to self-awakening. At the same time, everyone is buzzing over news reports about men, accused of sexual abuse and assault, who are disappearing and meeting untimely, violent deaths.
Amazon Prime’s version of Desperate Housewives. It’s about the scandalous lives of a group of four girlfriends, each on her own path to self-discovery as they brave the turbulent journey together. Also, it has 4 seasons, which means you can get your girls and a pint of ice cream, and run an all nighter.
