Day 52 or quarantine and I have watched almost every show on Netflix. So, I decided to watch every show on Amazon Prime! Here are five of my favorite Amazon Prime Originals that will help you get through your quarantine days
The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel
If you’re looking for a comedy based on real life’s pain, then this show is the best you got. It’s an excellent show with brilliant writing. Rachel Brosnahan plays the protagonist Miriam and captures the show’s audience with her never-ending grace and exuberance. The show gives a glance into the homes of the upper Westside households of 1950s New York. Midge Maisel is shown to be an ideal housewife who finds her life falling apart when her husband leaves her. An angry and infuriated Maisel ends up at a club where she delivers a powerful and hilarious rant disguised as a set irking Susie Meyerson’s attention. After that, Mrs. Maisel’s tragedy-stricken life completely changes, for the best. The show is a perfect mix of delightful comedy, feminism, and a little drama. Moreover, several Emmys precede the show’s reputation.
Bosch is a perfect choice for detective fiction enthusiasts. Harry Bosch, a former military man sets out to discover the truth by unmasking corrupt cops, uncovering conspiracies, and searching for murderers. Cases brought upon maybe a little haunting for some, yet, each season presents a new case that may alter your opinion on the world. It’s a simple show that doesn’t create illusions to increase its popularity. The characters eloquently display their temperaments. The storyline is well textured and detailed, the cinematography is remarkable as well.
Just Add Magic
If you are in the mood for mindless binge-watching, the Just Add Magic will serve you well. A story about three best friends discovering a cookbook takes them through a rollercoaster ride where they eventually realize that friendship is the most valuable magic in life. The show is full of threads of mystery, thriller, comedy, and wholesomeness. Hannah, Darbie, and Kelly often cook spells from the book to break curses, help people and the town. The show will definitely lift up your mood for the best!
Catastrophe is a rom-com that features children, married life, and a lot of sexual disagreements. The show focuses on showing an open relationship within Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan. Their candidness will make you laugh. The main storyline of the show revolves around a pregnancy. The brilliance of the show lies in the fact that people actively complain of its short run. The show derives its funniest sets from real life’s instances. It brings a light note to the hardships faced by married couples. Viewers can easily relate to the show and every episode throws light on a new technique used by the couple to tackle their marital problems.
Transparent is a family drama that aims at humanizing flaws and imperfections. Jeffrey Tambor is the main lead who takes the decision to turn into a woman later on in his life. The storyline plays forward to acknowledge the family’s reaction and the pain felt by the old woman who came to the realization that most of her life has been wasted being someone she wasn’t meant to be. It’s a beautiful series and covers a heavy theme with precision and kindness.
These shows are from varying genres but are amazing nonetheless!
