The feeling of finishing a great TV show and being lost without knowing what to watch is often difficult. Watching one or two episodes of new shows we think might be just as good, but then putting them off because they just don’t live up to the previous show. With a plethora of streaming sites available to us now, it gives us so many options – but sometimes too many that it makes it even harder to find a show, as we spend so long scrolling. Amazon Prime is underrated when it comes to TV shows available and may be one of the last apps you go to, especially if you own a subscription to the majority of streaming sites. So we have put together a list of the best TV shows on prime. If you have recently finished that perfect show, but can’t find anything as engaging for you, you could try to change the way you watch. Move your TV off a cluttered stand or table, and try having it wall mounting. This will make for a more comfortable viewing experience – especially as it helps avoid eye and neck strain.

Next up on the best TV shows on prime is Mr Robot – this is certainly not a show for everyone, but if you’re prepared to tune in and be mind blown, you will love it. Young, obnoxious computer programmer Elliot works as a cybersecurity engineer by day and a vigilante hacker at night. He is invited to join an underground group of hackers by the mysterious leader of their organisation. Elliot’s mission? Help bring down corporate America, especially the firm he is supposed to guard, posing a moral quandary for him. Despite the fact that he works for a company, his personal convictions make it difficult for him to resist the impulse to bring down the leaders of global corporations that he feels are governing – and wrecking – the globe. The show is full of small details, and there are plenty of real-world elements coming through. There are special episodes including a one-shot episode and a no-dialogue episode – if you get that far you’ll be impressed by how well it works and fits in, despite how difficult it sounds. Even if you don’t like it, Mr Robot is an undoubtedly unusual programme with many brilliant concepts.
Undoubtedly one of the best TV shows on Prime, like your typical ‘cop’ show but with a few extra layers. Harry Bosch, a former Special Forces soldier who served deployments in the Middle East, is now a feisty, jazz-loving murder investigator in the LAPD’s Hollywood Division. In his dogged pursuit of the truth, Bosch faces several hurdles as he investigates strange murders and pursues trails of corruption, including the dark side of the police department. The critically praised procedural is based on best-selling author Michael Connelly’s series of novels. This programme is not based on just one case to be solved each episode – the format many shows use for storytelling but instead has long and short storylines going on throughout the show keeping it interesting for viewers and making you not want to turn it off. This show is highly praised for the high level of acting present in the show, but also the writing. Each investigation seems to give a step-by-step process so you see the developments and always know what’s going on, it follows logic.
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan
Following a series of books and movies, Tom Clancy has taken Jack Ryan to the next level. For the first time, the former US Marine is featured in an episodic series, with John Krasinski portraying Ryan in an Amazon original drama centred on Ryan as an up-and-coming CIA analyst. For the first time, he is thrown into a perilous field assignment and discovers a pattern in terrorist communication. That puts him in the heart of a perilous gamble with a new kind of terrorists that threatens global disaster. It’s suspenseful, well-acted, fast-paced, and relatively smart in terms of real-world politics. One reason it has been successful is how personal it feels and how attached it makes us feel. One person described it as “you can relate to the character and feel as if you are the one saving your nation.” Almost everyone who tuned in loved season 1, it has been claimed season 2 has a few minor issues and doesn’t quite live up to the first season, but it still makes for a great TV programme. Overall, it is a well-acted, well-written TV show and with its 2 seasons will certainly fill a void in your life if you’re looking for an interesting, gripping programme.
