Based on the wildly popular Douglas Adams novel of the same name, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency kicks off its quirky story with former bellhop Todd Brotzman (Elijah Wood).

Like Adam’s other works, such as A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency captures the author’s original voice, pulling all his intended comedy and charm straight off the page and transferring it to the small screen.

Calling all Portuguese, Brazilian, and reality tv fans in general – Wild and Free has just landed on Prime Video. Harkening back to 1990s MTV The Real World levels of insanity, Wild and Free takes a crazy cast of characters, drops them in a luxury beach house located in Brazil’s beautiful sun-drenched city of Florianópolis, and presses record. Maybe people have calmed down? Maybe the generations raised around cameras have become more aware of how to act when the film is rolling. Whatever the case, it has seemed that in the last few years, much of reality television has lost its oomph due to the quality of its cast members. That only serves to make Wild and Free even more of a treat though. So, what are you waiting for? Sit down, tune in, and get ready for the best thing to come out of Brazil since Gisele Bündchen.

Rating: TV-MA

If you’re not already familiar with movies like the City of God, or Carandiru then you’ve been missing out on what Brazilian cinema has to offer. Thankfully, a more easily accessible intro to “favela film” in television form has just made its way to Prime. Pedro Dom (Gabriel Leone) is a local teenager from Rio de Janeiro who develops a drug problem, eventually resorting to dealing and smuggling to pay for his vices. His father Victor Dantas (Flávio Tolezani) is a cop whose lifelong goal has been to vanquish crime and narcotics from the city. Instilled with the unique energy of Brazil, gun battles you’ve seen 100 times prior take on a brand-new feeling as the rhythm of funk carioca choreographs the action, and every color of carnival frames the shots. Captivating characters that would seem like caricatures anywhere else blend with the big personalities of Rio, creating personal moments that are as heart-pounding as they are warming. Simply put, Dom is a show worth watching on its own, but when viewed as a gateway to all the cinematic wonder Brazil has to offer, it’s unforgettable.

Few people do mystery better than the British. After 14-year-old Cal Bray (Tommy Knight) is found dead, the murder investigation throws the once cozy village of Overton into turmoil.

Created by: Nathan Fielder

Cast: Nathan Fielder

Genre: Comedy

Number of Seasons: 4

Rating: TV-MA

So awkward you can’t bear to watch, but too entertaining to look away, Nathan for You’s creator and star, Nathan Fielder, has stumbled upon a concept unlike anything else on TV. Pretending to be the host of his own small documentary series, Fielder sets out around the country discovering people and businesses in need. Concocting plans as ridiculous as they are cringeworthy, Nathan implants his socially awkward character into the center of his subject’s scheme, taking a bad idea to a level of terrible you’ve never seen. Drumming up business with a Johnny Depp look-alike, entrapping teenagers in a crime to scare them onto the straight and narrow, creating blind dates with corporate sponsors. The list goes on. I’d suggest an episode, but they’re all hilarious, and all available right now on Prime.

American Horror Story: Double Feature

a woman poses near rocks.

Created by: Ryan Murphy

Cast: Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Russell Tovey, Charlie Carver

Genre: Horror

Number of Seasons: 10

Rating: TV-MA

The show that single handedly resurrected horror television is back for its tenth season. Splitting from its previous format, American Horror Story: Double Feature takes on the ambitious challenge of telling two stories in one. Red Tide is the first, following Harry Gardner (Finn Wittrock), a wannabe TV writer, and his wife and young daughter on a three-month respite from NYC to the small shores of Provincetown, Massachusetts. While there, Harry bumps into famed writers Belle Noir (Frances Conroy) and Austin Sommers (Evan Peters) who let him in on their secret to success: a little black pill called “Muse.”

The pill works like a hit, helping Harry write and sell a TV show in just a few hours. The side effects come just as quickly though. Harry has developed a taste for blood. Part two of Double Feature is titled Death Valley and takes place as far from a misty seaside town as you can imagine. The year is 1954, and a simple Albuquerque, New Mexico mother named Maria Wycoff (Rebecca Dayan) has just received word that President Dwight D. Eisenhower (Neal McDonough) and an accompanying military convoy are on their way to see her. Why might you ask? Because Ms. Wycoff happens to be the mother of the first known alien possession. Jumping back and forth through time, the secret dealings, cover-ups, discoveries, and potential fallout from a U.S. and extraterrestrial treaty are packed with all the dramatic historical fiction fans of American Horror Story have come to expect.


amazon prime's new show, jungle.

Created by: Junior Okoli, Chas Appeti

Cast: Ezra Elliott, Nadia A’Rubea, RA, Poundz, IAMDDB, M24

Genre: Musical, Drama

Number of Seasons: 1

Dubbed the UK Empire, hood noir, and more colorful names, this visually captivating story about British drill music is unlike anything else on streaming. Set in a futuristic London, Jungle reimagines the origins of the UK rap scene, placing it amongst neon skyscrapers while employing the same MCs who brought it to life in the real world. Rappers like Poundz, IAMDDB, and M24 fill the cast and lend their talents to the show’s multiple musical scenes. Telling the story of Gogo (Ezra Elliott), a drug dealer trying to pull off one last big deal to provide for his pregnant girlfriend, it shows the struggles of real-world London and its poorer inhabitants.

Cast: Skyler Gisondo, Kiersey Clemons, Jaboukie Young-White, Peter S. Kim

Genre: Cartoon

Number of Seasons: 1

Rating: TV-MA

If “do it for the Gram” are words you consider your personal mantra then get ready, because you’ve just found your new favorite show. Dale (Skyler Gisondo), Truman (Jaboukie Young-White), Derica (Kiersey Clemons), and Benny (Peter S. Kim) are four hypebeasts desperate to grow their online following, land the next big sneaker drop, and grab a picture with anybody even remotely famous. They’re also still in high school. Between detention, chores, and mandatory family time, classic childhood obsession finds itself dunked in the modern social media era. For anyone not familiar with all the annoying bits of lingo clout chasers use and then change the second it becomes unfollow-worthy, Fairfax can be overwhelming. That’s the beauty behind this frantic little show though. Self-aware to the point it might not even be a parody, cultural references, slang, homages, and outright bootlegs fly across the screen so fast there’s no way you can possibly appreciate them all. In other words, it’s hype to the T.

Genre: Anime, Sci-Fi, Thriller

Number of Seasons: 1

With Interpol now investigating the string of mysterious deaths and Ryuk haunting his every step, Light grows ever more frantic, now using the notebook to try and escape his own troubles. With heart-pounding plot twists and amazing character development it’s easy to see why this sci-fi cat and mouse game has remained such a fan favorite.

Cast: Morfydd Clark, Robert Aramayo, Markella Kavenagh, Sophia Nomvete, Tyroe Muhafidin

Genre: Fantasy

Number of Seasons: 1

Rating: TV-14

The wait for the most anticipated show of the year is finally over. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power premiered with two episodes at once, letting fans fall into the world of Middle Earth. Set thousands of years before the occurrences of Tolkien’s books and the Peter Jackson films, TROP shows Middle-earth as we’ve never seen it before—at peace. This peace is a wary one though, and Galadriel (Morfydd Clark), an elven warrior believes it is only a matter of time before the evil Lord Sauron gathers his forces and strikes out once again. Exploring Dwarven, Elven, Hobbit, and human societies, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power expands on never-before-seen aspects of Tolkien’s creations, putting its purported billion-dollar budget to good use. Whether the series will turn out to be more shock-and-awe than plot and character still remains to be seen, but if early reactions are any sign, Prime Video may just have itself a hit.

Paper Girls

Created by: Stephany Folsom

Cast: Sofia Rosinsky, Camryn Jones, Fina Strazza, Ali Wong, Nate Corddry, Riley Lai Nelet

Genre: Sci Fi

Number of Seasons: 1

Rating: TV-MA

Calling Paper Girls the all-female Stranger Things might not be far off from the truth, but who’s to say that’s a bad thing? Mac Coyle (Sofia Rosinsky), KJ Brandman (Fina Strazza), Erin Tieng (Riley Lai Nelet), and Tiffany Quilkin (Camryn Jones) are just your four average paper girls. That’s why when riding their bikes along their route, they’re surprised to see something very out of the ordinary. Stumbling across a massive thunderstorm they spot a group of strangers fighting. Fleeing for safety they all run back to Erin’s house, only to find an even odder sight. A middle-aged woman has taken up living in Erin’s home and is insisting that she has lived there all her life. The strangest part? She looks just like Erin. After an all-around hilarious exchange, the group comes to the only logical conclusion: the old lady is Erin, and they’ve been sent into the future. 


Two characters are at a county fair together.

Created by: Lauren Oliver

Cast: Olivia Scott Welch, Ray Nicholson, Mike Faist, Jessica Sula, Jordan Elsass

Genre: Adventure

Number of Seasons: 1

Rating: TV-14

Based on Lauren Oliver’s hit novel of the same name, Panic takes you to the small town of Carp, Texas where 47 high school seniors compete annually in a chance to win $50,000. The catch? It’s a game where the stakes could mean your life. Cliff dives, tight ropes—and yes, even tigers—make this game enough of a challenge, but when a mystery contestant sets out to rig the odds in their favor things get even more dangerous. Bound to draw comparisons to The Hunger Games, Panic’s everyday setting, as well as its far more fleshed out cast of characters gives the story a refreshingly unique take on the YA survival genre.

A League of Their Own

Baseball players in A League of Their Own

Created by: Will Graham, Abbi Jacobson

Cast: Abbi Jacobson, D’Arcy Carden, Chanté Adams, Kelly McCormack, Molly Ephraim, Nick Offerman

Genre: Sport, Comedy

Number of Seasons: 1

Rating: N/A

Based on the 1992 movie of the same name, A League of Their Own the series offers an expanded take on a story rich with possibilities. The year is 1943, America’s men are away at war, and the overall public need something to take their mind off the fighting. Cue the Rockford Peaches, a women’s baseball team stacked with talent and even more character. Fans of the original film will recognize some personality types: the tough, the nerd, the girly-girl; but the series also makes some very noticeable additions. Black, gay, and Latino players are given representation, while more adversities facing women in the 1940s are examined. As with all great sport pieces of the past such as Remember the Titans and Hoosiers, the challenges the players face in game are often analogies for the struggles they face in their everyday lives. Disproving the conspiracy of more for the sake of it, A League of Their Own stands as a shining example of diversity elevating plot and awarding the audience with a more worthwhile story. 

Comrade Detective

Comrade Detective

Created By: Brian Gatewood, Alessandro Tanaka

Cast: Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jenny Slate

Genre: Comedy

Number of Seasons: 1

Rating: TV-MA

Comrade Detective was first filmed with all Romanian actors, meant to have the feel and construction of an ’80s propaganda film. The dialogue was then dubbed over by English-speaking actors. These moving parts come together to form a cleverly satirical buddy-cop series intended to make us think about politics and propaganda while laughing at capitalism. This smart, original method houses a story within the film, where Detective Anghel (voiced by Channing Tatum) sets out to solve his partner’s murder and stumbles across a sinister plan where the U.S. is attempting to infiltrate Romanian society.

Genre: Comedy

Number of Seasons: 1

Rating: TV-MA

Written by Neil Gaiman and based on his and renowned fantasy author Terry Pratchett’s book of the same name, Good Omens tells the story of two reluctant friends, demon Crowley (David Tennant) and angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen). Both Crowley and Aziraphale have long been rivals. Stationed on earth for centuries as liaisons for their respective sides of heaven and hell, the two have become rather fond of their new home, and despite their differences, each other. That’s why when word of Armageddon comes down from their bosses, the two frenemies instead team up with plans to catch the antichrist and save their planet. Staying faithful to the book for the first season, Good Omens second outing is due to premiere on Prime in early 2023 and will be branching out beyond the original text. Author Neil Gaiman assures fans of the book that he’s been working tirelessly though, and seeing as how amazing the first season turned out that can only bode well.

We Need to Talk About Cosby

A woman being interviewed about Bill Cosby.

Created by: W. Kamau Bell

Cast: W. Kamau Bell, Doug E. Doug, Marc Lamont Hill, Godfrey, Chris Spencer

Genre: Docuseries

Number of Seasons: 1

Rating: TV-MA

Interweaving both the public and private personas of Bill Cosby, We Need to Talk About Cosby aims to give insight into the man that captured the imaginations of families while simultaneously terrorizing women. Foregoing the classic drop shock story structure of building up the hero only to reveal the villain underneath, the miniseries takes a side-by-side approach, examining how both pieces of the man influenced the other. The true standout of the series and what makes it a must-watch is none other than creator W. Kamau Bell. Showcasing a master’s talent in his role as interviewer, Bell amasses an unusual cast of subjects such as Jelani Cobb and Marc Lamont Hill; then proceeds to ask questions ignored by the larger media outlets. Bell also touches on one of the most polarizing issues concerning Cosby—the issue of race. Examining Cosby’s status in the Black community, and what he has meant to those in that community, We Need to Talk About Cosby offers perhaps the most complete picture of why its subject remains both a hero and a monster in so many people’s eyes.

South Korea has long been known for its dominance in the realm of feature length thrillers, but with the release of Squid Games and now Anna, the country’s serialized iterations are finally garnering the recognition they deserve. Based on the novel Chinjeolhan Yibangin by Jung Han-A, Anna follows Lee Yu-mi (Bae Suzy), a poor girl with a troubled past. One day while seeking shelter inside a university she spots Lee Hyeon-ju (Jung Eun-chae). Beautiful, rich, and carefree Hyeon-ju is everything Yu-mi has always wanted to be. Finding more out about her new role-model, Yu-mi begins to take on Hyeon-ju’s characteristics, eventually even using her name and degree to get a job. Skip years ahead and Yu-mi is married with a rich husband, a circle of friends, and an ever-growing lie she’s forced to live under. Slowly revealing Yu-mi’s past while interweaving her crumbling present will keep you glued to your screen. Lacking the action Squid Games has Anna more than makes up for it with a level of psychological tension far outstripping its more famous counterpart.

Co-produced by Law & Order creator Dick Wolf and Uptown Records founder Andre Harrell, New York Undercover aimed to give a grittier, more realistic look into the NYPD. Right off the bat, NY Undercover makes it clear that it’s a different kind of show. The first police drama on American television to feature two POC actors in the lead roles, Detectives J.C. Williams (Malik Yoba) and Eddie Torres (Michael DeLorenzo) navigate the tough streets of ’90s NYC, not solely as cops, but as born and raised New Yorkers. Aware of the societal issues plaguing many of the city’s minority population, as well as having the street smarts seldom shown in police procedurals, Williams and Torres tackle issues of race, drugs, and violence from a completely new angle. Taking full advantage of its Uptown Records connection, prominent R&B artists were featured throughout the series, creating a soundtrack as classic as the show itself
