Amazon Prime: The prime picks of the platform

Written by TV

While some may argue that Netflix is way better than Amazon Prime, I may beg to differ. Yes Netflix does give us a myriad of movies to watch, but Amazon Prime is the place to be for all your wonderful TV series. Amazon Prime gives us a load of TV shows that can’t be found on Netflix.

The Office US

Of course, The Office has to be on the list. And not the British one, the American one. The Office is an American sitcom of a group of office workers in Pennsylvania. Not only can you watch this light-hearted show in the background, it is great for procrastination. Given that there are over 150 episodes, the sitcom still remains fresh and each episode adds greater depth to the characters.

Downton Abbey

Why Downton Abbey is not on UK Netflix will always be a mystery to me. This British drama series depicts the lives of the Crawley family in the post-Edwardian era. Throughout the film it shows historical events having an impact on their lives and the social hierarchy in Britain. There is also a movie spin off to this well-loved show. While spin-offs are usually never a good idea, you may want to give this spin-off a try. (but watch the series first!)

Grey’s Anatomy

Grey’s Anatomy is another American Drama Series and also one of the longest scripted TV series in the US. The series is entered around the personal and professional lives of surgical interns and supervisors. The series is jammed packed with emotions and will constantly tug on your heart strings. You should be warned, you will get hooked on this series.

Parks and Recreation

This American political satire sitcom revolves around Leslie Knope, deputy director of the parks and recreation department in Pawnee. The show also incorporates current events into episodes, such as a government shutdown in Pawnee inspired by the real-life global financial crisis. Real-life politicians have cameos in later episodes such as First Lady Michelle Obama. Michael Schur, who has also written other series such as The Good Place and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, gave me high expectations for this show to which I was not disappointed.
