With coronavirus’ rapid spread, chances are you’ll be spending more time at home than usual. 

And you’ve probably already watched Netlfix’s biggest shows and are looking for something else to binge watch. Enter: Amazon Prime. It’s arguably one of the most underrated streaming services, with plenty of award-winning shows for you to delve into. 

These are the best series on Amazon Prime. 

Fleabag

If you’ve yet to watch Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s ‘Fleabag’, you’re missing out on one of the best television series of the decade. Its two Emmy wins, and two Golden Globes prove it. In just two seasons, Waller-Bridge carved out a reputation for herself as a formidable writer. The series sees the writer, director, and actress play Fleabag, a hilarious, intelligent woman navigating the world whilst balancing out her sexual needs and dealing with grief. 

The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel

The show was the 2018 Emmy’s biggest winner, and for good reason. The comedy is Amy Sherman-Palladino’s follow-up to ‘Gilmore Girls’, and it might be her best work yet. The series, which is set in 1950s NYC sees an Upper Westside wife’s life flip upside down after her husband leaves her, and ultimately finds her embarking on a major career as a comedian at a time when women were most encouraged to be housewives. 

Homecoming

If you’ve ever wondered how Julia Roberts’ acting plays out in a television show, you’ll be happy to know she doesn’t disappoint.

Tales of the Unexpected 

Roald Dahl, the author behind some of the world’s most well known children’s literature (Matilda, and Charlie and the Chocolate factory, to name but two) gets the spotlight in this series. The series dives deep into the author’s most sinister stories, with each episode uncovering a different plot.
