Informer

Amazon Studios

This stunning British series is about yes, an informant and the murky territory involved in forcing someone to take on a dangerous gig. Paddy Considine (who now plays in Game of Thrones foreplay) plays DS Gabe Waters, a counterterrorism officer tasked with infiltrating the far-right movement in West Yorkshire. In partnership with the excellent Bel Powley (The Morning Show, King of Steten Island) as the young and curious DC Holly Morten, he tries to bring British Pakistani Raz (Nabhaan Rizwan) aboard to reveal information about a possible terrorist attack. A provocative thriller that will keep you on your feet.

Picnic on a hanging rock (2018)

Amazon Studios

This TV version of Picnic at Hanging Rock is not exactly a masterpiece like the film adaptation of the 1975 classic Australian novel. But it is equally mysterious to unravel the dreamy and eerie veil over a fictional disappearance in an isolated Australian bush. When the three students and their governess disappear after a rock picnic, the community and the esteemed Appleyard College, led by the dreaded principal Natalie Dormer, become hysterical. Dark secrets appear that hold you to the end.

Good Omens

Chris Raphael

This adaptation of the novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett pairs two more British treasures in David Tennant and Michael Sheen. They play the demon Crowley and the angel Aziraphale in a miniseries that sees Earth on the brink of destruction thanks to the final battle between Heaven and Hell. Resolutely against it, after enjoying the time spent on the planet, the quarreling couple unites and tries to prevent Armageddon. With a stacked cast, including a cameo by Benedict Cumberbatch as well as Satan, Good Omens is a worthy adaptation, largely thanks to the double act of Tennant and Sheen.

The Wilds

Amazon

Amazon’s first original youth offering is an intriguing combination of Lost and Breakfast – and it works. It is crucial that the characters that are found are abandoned on the island by all the teenage girls. It makes life even more painful for them. Each has a very different background – from a spoiled rich girl to Native American Indians – but they have to put aside their differences in order to survive, learning something about themselves along the way. Things get even darker and more exciting when Gretchen Klein Rachel Griffiths comes on stage as the host of the secret program Dawn of Eve.

Stories from the loop

Amazon

Not just another show about a small town where strange things happen, Tales from the Loop has a lot more under the surface. Drawing from Swedish artist Simon Stålenhag’s book of narrative art, the series is stunning to look at, as meticulous as it can be with symmetrical frames. Light and space are imbued with a sense of painting. The interconnected inhabitants of the city are similarly nuanced, their stories exploring loneliness, aging, the impact of technology and even more through science fiction ideas.

Truth seekers

Amazon

Longtime comedian couple Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) came out on the small screen with Truth Seekers, a surprisingly dark comedy of sinister edge. Frost plays Gus, a paranormal investigator when he doesn’t work for Dave’s (Pegg) broadband company and performs tasks in creepy houses across the UK. The ghost-week format turns into solving a bigger conspiracy, with a few guest stars obviously having the ball. It won’t top the list of Pegg and Frost’s best projects, but it’s good fun, especially around Halloween.

Hanna

Amazon Prime

The guess of Hanna, Joe Wright’s 2011 action thriller, is so good that Amazon designed it for the TV series. Starring Esme Creed-Miles as a qualified young assassin living in the Romanian wilderness, the TV show Hanna expands on her teenage past and explains why CIA Marissa Wiegler is obsessed with catching her.

Amazon Studios

A comedy-drama set on the New York stage of classical music, Mozart in the Jungle is as capricious as its title suggests. Future oboist Hailey meets eccentric conductor Rodrigo, who is tasked with revitalizing the New York Symphony. Never losing you in jargon, Mozart charmingly reveals the brighter side of the string world in the jungle, playing his own symphony of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll.

Amazon Studios

The Boys attacked Amazon last year with their ultra-violent story of anti-heroic awakeners seeking revenge on the world’s most beloved superheroes. But these heroes are not what they seem: Their corporate superiors cover up their dubious personal lives, including sexual harassment and a strange assassination. With social commentary, black comedy and pops up, The Boys makes an exciting and unbiased step away from the family genre.

Amazon Studios

Sex scandal in the British Parliament? Starring Hugh Grant and Ben Wishaw? You can thank Russell T. Davies for dramatizing this part of British politics in the late ’70s. Jeremy Thorpe, a liberal member of parliament, wants to silence his unhappy ex-lover Norman before his career ends in the guts. Watch the conspiracy around the murder, the grand trial and media control through the darkly funny lens of A Very English Scandal.

Amazon Studios

The banner’s unique story follows Pfefferman’s siblings who discover that their father changes into a woman named Maura. Other aspects of Pfefferman’s life, such as a sour marriage and a disappointing child, give this solidly written comedy-drama a significant side. Shocking and ambitious, Transparent is a show to watch out for.

Amazon Studios

Although Season 2 of Homecoming didn’t quite find its feet, Season 1 kicked off the ground. Julia Roberts stars in this psychological thriller about a military rehabilitation facility run by suspicious owners. Using an effective narrative that creates mystery and covers two timelines, Returning Home bursts with tension and paranoia as it reveals what the real purpose of the object is. Fun fact: The series uses really a multitude of films by Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick and others.

Amazon Studios

This unique series uses the Rotoscoping animation technique to tell the story of a young woman who, after suffering an almost fatal car accident, discovers that she can manipulate time. Intriguing, isn’t it? It gets better: Bob Odenkirk plays Alma’s dead father who asks her for help in the investigation of his murder. Bending both time and space, Undone is surreal and beautifully existential for those looking for deep material.

Amazon Studios

Although The Tick was unfortunately canceled after two seasons, the superhero comedy will still give you a hit of fast, colorful action with your tongue firmly in your cheek. Based on a comic book character, The Tick is an impenetrable hero wearing a blue suit, yes. His assistant? Tame Arthur wearing … a moth suit. Their enemy is The Terror, super villains in the underground of their city. If you want to sit back and watch pure superhero fun, you’ve found the right show.

Amazon Studios

The man in the High Castle imagines an alternative history in which the Axis powers (Rome-Berlin-Tokyo) win World War II. Based on the novel by Philip K. Dick, the series follows characters from the 60s living in a parallel universe, where Nazi Germany and the Japanese Empire control the US. But it is impossible to record newspaper releases as a world emerges in which Germany and Japan lose the war, causing some to revolt. To really create his dystopia, the film “The Man in the High Trap” is directed by producer Ridley Scott. Fully realized and with focused action, this is a great TV.

Amazon Studios

Amazon saved The Expanse from the realm of canceled TV, bringing us a fourth season with a fifth coming. Thank goodness, because The Expanse is smart science fiction with realistic characters, high production values, and a dash of Detective Noir. Set in a future in which humanity has colonized the solar system, the conspiracy threatens to start a cold war between the greatest powers. A group of antiheroes found themselves at the center. Look forward to more cosmic western themes in the consistently great later seasons.

Amazon Studios

Turns and checkered situations will take you through episodes of addiction quickly as Pete pulls his counters.

This lengthy police procedure, inspired by Michael Connelly’s novels, does everything right for an old-fashioned detective drama.

Functional and nonsense-free, Bosch provides a lasting mystery with an equally stable lead.
