Default amazon prime recommendations?

Movies? TV series? Documentaries? I rarely watch tv but with it getting dark earlier, not a lot else to do sometimes. Watching first episode of "man in high castle" now. Too early to make a call on it. Have previously watched most of "justified" which I thought was ok.

Also have watched some of the "Harry Bosch" series (always liked Michael Connely's books)

Man in the High Castle takes commitment, at least for me. We've been trying to finish the first season for about 6 months. It's good though, just a bit slow.

Shameless for a start. You might have to upgrade to the Showtime channel for 7 bucks but it's worth it. Also Donovan. And The Americans. Lot's to choose from. I am an Amazon Ho.

Get the Showtime add on for maybe $7/mos. (cancel any time) and watch Billions, Ray Donovan, House of Lies, Dice, Homeland, etc.

You may have seen them already since they had been on HBO a while ago, but I just recently finished watching all 6 seasons of The Sopranos, which I had never seen before. That was really good!

Right now I'm watching Band of Brothers which is GREAT!

I liked a few of the brit coms like Happy Valley but think that is Netflix? You can get Doc Martin on Prime which I loved but you have to like the genre. And have to watch a few episodes to get into it.

I do have the Amazon Fire stick but mostly for Netflix which has amuch wider selection.

How is the Bosch series. I like the books and have thinking of getting prime just to watch that series.

The Pacific but that may be Netflix. Good miniseries.


I'll have to check out the others mentioned.


Did try watching the man in the High Castle or whatever it is called but lost interest pretty quickly. may need to give it more time.


The Russian spy series was pretty good but cannot remember the name. Only down side is the characters who seem to always be on the winning side are leftist commies.

That's cool.

A couple really great shows.

At least it's not Bachelor and/or Dancing w/Stars, ha ha

I thought Bosch was good but then I'm a real fan of Michael Connely novels. I think I saw where The Pacific was on Prime. May give that a try as my dad was over there. I'll probably bail on high castle.

hey fella's, thanks for all the recommendations so far!
