Best shows in the Prime Video top 10

'The Boys'

Amazon's gory and hard-hitting anti-superhero show returns with The Boys on the back foot. Their leader, Butcher (Karl Urban), only has a few months left to live after contracting a terminal illness from taking V24, a serum that grants temporary superpowers. 

It couldn't come at a worse time too, as his archnemesis Homelander (Antony Starr) is at the peak of his power and influence. The public only loves him more after the bloody events of Season 3's finale, and his fellow supes on the Seven alternate between blindly following his orders and cowering in fear. Meanwhile, the cutthroat Vought mole Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit) closes in on the White House. But maybe all is not lost for the Boys. Butcher has a plan to wipe out supes once and for all: unleashing the anti-supe virus he uncovered in the spinoff show “Gen V.”

As a huge "Fallout" fan, I had high hopes for Prime Video's take on the post-apocalyptic series set in a 1950s-inspired future. And I'm pleased to say I was not disappointed. “Fallout's" eight-episode first season is packed with references for eagle-eyed fans, stellar production design, classic songs featured in the games, and the blend of emotional gut punches and irreverent humor the series is known for. 

The story is split between its three main characters: Lucy (Ella Purnell), a bright-eyed, sheltered vault dweller who leaves behind the only home she's ever known, Maximus (Aaron Moten), a new recruit in the Brotherhood of Steel paramilitary group desperate to climb the ranks, and Cooper Howard (Walton Goggins), a Hollywood star who survived the initial nuclear blast and is now a mutated gunslinging outlaw. Their paths wind together as they unravel the true purpose behind the vaults billed as humanity's safety net.

Critics have compared Prime Video's sci-fi Western show "Outer Range" to a cross between "Yellowstone," "Stranger Things," and "Lost. " Its recent second season has proven to be a hit, earning a 92% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes. Josh Brolin stars as Royal Abbott, a rancher in Wyoming fighting for his land and family after discovering a mysterious black hole in his backyard. That's when things take a turn for the supernatural. 

A drifter named Autumn (Imogen Poots) starts camping out on his property and suggests a theory about what's going on. Royal and his wife Cecelia (Lili Taylor) struggle to keep their family together in the wake of a devastating disappearance. With threats coming in from multiple fronts, things only promise to get more interesting in Season 2 as the Abbott family is forced to wander deeper into the dark void that could shake the foundations of time itself.

    June 17, 2024 - I got tired of Fallout because of some of the plot holes, and the lead actress. I found that I couldn't get interested in the series, because I didn't care about any of the characters. As far as The Boys is concerned. I watched and enjoyed all three of the earlier seasons of the series. I wanted to watch the fourth season, but was turned off by the political statement that the creator and showrunner Eric Kripke recently made. He said that basically anyone who doesn't agree with his political and social agendas. Should go watch something else. I pay money to be entertained and not preached to. Unfortunately, a lot of people in Hollywood seem to feel that they have to include their personal views into their work. I know a lot of people are totally happy with the current films and TV productions that are being made, and don't mind, or notice. The political and social themes that are being included in them. That's fine, but I'm not interested in the personal lives and opinions of people that are being paid to entertain me. I will take Mr. Kripke's advice and go and watch something else.
