This fast-paced drama is set in corporate Manhattan and follows the lives of lawyers in a large firm. The main character, played by Patrick J. Adams, accepts a job at a high-profile law firm without a college degree, resulting in suspense that plays out over the course of the show. Suit’s ninth and final season just became available on Prime Video, promising hours of binge-worthy TV! Of course, I think that is one of Amazon Video’s best shows. It’s perfect for anyone looking for a high-stakes, edge-of-your-seat lawyer drama.


The Fosters is a relatively new show to Amazon Prime but it’s been on Netflix for a while now. Nevertheless, is it most definitely worth watching! With 5 seasons, this show follows an unconventional family and highlights familial themes. Most importantly, there are so many beautiful other themes and lessons that I absolutely love. This show will definitely leave you laughing, crying and everything in between!


Next on the list is this long-running crime show that has 12 seasons and over 200 episodes. Bones is the perfect binge for those interested in crime television. Emily Deschanel stars as a forensic anthropologist who is often called to assist in criminal investigations. The unique perspective on crime that Bones offers makes it super fun and exciting. Overall, this is definitely a show that all Prime members should watch!


Another of Prime’s underrated shows includes hit sitcom Parks and Recreation. The city of Shawnee, Indiana is the focus of this show as it explores the city’s local politics. Perfect for fans of The Office, this show is definitely ready for you to binge all 7 of its seasons! PS, check out this adorable Pawnee shirt.


This supernatural show is perfect for binging, with all six seasons on Amazon Prime Video. The show stars Tyler Posey and Dylan O’Brien as they navigate high school and the supernatural community in their town. Also, the storyline is absolutely amazing with twists and turns. In short, this show is a must-watch for all Prime members.


This comedy drama premiered on Prime Video in 2017 and stars Rachel Brosnahan as Miriam “Midge” Maisel. Midge’s seemingly perfect life, complete with a family and amazing wardrobe, takes a turn when she discovers stand-up comedy. Funny and light-hearted, this show currently has 3 seasons on Prime and has been renewed for a fourth.

A unique spin on the classic Grimm Fairy Tales, Grimm follows a Portland detective as he learns he is descended from a family of legendary warriors and gets pulled into the mythological side of the world. In other words, it’s a modernized take on fairy tales. A hidden gem, this show is super interesting to binge! Definitely put this show and all of its 6 seasons on your to-watch list!


A sci-fi, Eureka is about a US Marshal, played by Colin Ferguson, who becomes sheriff of a town of geniuses. With so many geniuses residing in one area, chaos is bound to happen, and happen it does! Each episode often features futuristic inventions that end up turning unexpectedly (or perhaps expectedly) disastrous. Both entertaining and family friendly, Eureka’s five seasons are sure to keep you engaged and laughing!
