Is there anything to watch on it?
I have a trial and I can't find anything that's really that I particularly want to watch

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Outlander blush grin

I didn't continue with prime after the free trial - I couldn't find anything much I wanted to watch and £79 is a lot to pay for next day delivery!!

Flesh and bone was good but quite dark. Mozart in the jungle is watchable. Preacher and Mr Robot are supposed to be quite good. Suppose it depends what sort of thing you like though?

I've read the Outlander books but is the TV series as good?

WonderMike Sat 15-Apr-17 19:07:41

Better, in places, than the books.

I haven't found as much on Prime as Netflix, but am half way through Z: The beginning of everything. It's about Zelda and F Scott Fitgerald's marriage. I think it's very good.

I have a varying taste.
I like watching Louis Theroux documentaries, I watched the one on scientology,

I like things like the big bang theory, friends etc. In the past I've watched Desperate Housewives, Jane the Virgin, Without a Trace, Unreal, Suits.

I am also partial to bit of property porn like Grand Designs, Tiny House, Fixer Upper.

Basically a lot of American series generally.

We just got it and are confused and disappointed as it looked like there was loads on there but when you go to watch it you have to pay for it hmm not impressed.

Search for stuff included in Prime. You should find TV and films.

I'm loving Lucifer atm not sure if it's your thing.

EllaHen Sat 15-Apr-17 19:19:41

Life in Pieces is great - comedy.

Bosch - especially season 2.

The Bureau - French spy thing.

Dh loves Vikings.

I'm thinking about trying to get back into The Man in the High Castle as so many people rave about it.

I agree it's nowhere near as good as Netflix but I like the next day free delivery too much to give it up.

PickleSarnie Sat 15-Apr-17 19:20:33


And Life in Pieces and Man in the High Castle.

But mainly Outlander. Bloody brilliant.

Bobbins43 Sat 15-Apr-17 19:22:14

Lucifer is great. And Parks and Recreation.

GreyVelvet Sat 15-Apr-17 19:23:53

I think I'm going to try outlander

I'm watching a strange Australian documentary about an overweight child at the moment...

I much prefer the selection on Netflix, but recently got a free trial for Amazon Prime and they have some good films on there. Better films than series IMO (and Netflix is the other way around!)

Black Sails.

Takeheed Sat 15-Apr-17 19:28:17

Sneaky Pete!!! Dh and I just watched it in 2 days. It's great!!

overwroughtowl Sat 15-Apr-17 19:29:40

The man in the high castle
Mr Robot

Movie - cell 211 (Spanish, subtitled)

GreyVelvet Sat 15-Apr-17 19:31:54

Oh I did watch a funny series called catastrophe which I don't think has been mentioned

claritytobeclear Sat 15-Apr-17 19:42:25

I second Outlander. Also like Halt and Catch Fire and Please Like Me.

claritytobeclear Sat 15-Apr-17 19:43:23

Oh and how could I forget Vikings! My favourite but binge watched a while ago now.
