Like clockwork, summer has said goodbye, the sun is setting earlier and the temperature is starting to drop. This means the cozy season has officially arrived. The time of year when we spend more time indoors and swallow all the good stuff on TV. If you’re looking for a variety of content, Prime Video is one of our favorite streaming services. It has a great mix of original programming and archival content, plus an on-demand video library that lets you rent or buy recently released movies. In 2022, Prime Video is also expanding its range of sports programming, and it is now the exclusive home of Thursday night football as well as shows like All or nothing: Arsenal.

Could you use a good laugh? If anyone can make us laugh in these dark times, it’s the Canadian comedians behind Children in the room.

“The children in the room the original 90s race meant a lot to an entire generation. Canada’s comedy troupe was subversive and sentimental and left a big mark. This series of reboots brings the gang together for a whole new audience. They do an amazing job of bringing beloved characters into the 2020s, even Francesca and Bruno. KITH is still as satirical, clever and sweet as ever.

“You might think this is another series that chronicles the lives of four friends similar to Insecure or To live alonebut Harlem is really fresh, funny and will make you addicted. I mean, I drank it in a day. The cast is beautiful and brilliant. You have your mix of new faces and actors we know and love like Meagan Good and Whoopi Goldberg. And their stories are diverse and perfect – not too predictable either. I can’t wait for the new season to be announced, which should be any day now.

“I’m a big fan of Flea bag. I watched the entire show in the span of two weeks last year, and it may have changed my life. The writing is superb, it’s darkly comedic and showcases the vulnerability of being human better than almost any other show I’ve seen. Plus, it’s British, so you can’t go wrong.

Thursday night football

Thursday Night Football Amazon

Thursday Night Football Amazon

“Amazon Prime Video just launched its exclusive partnership with the NFL to bring viewers Thursday night football. As an avid football watcher who has a Prime subscription, I’m glad Amazon adapted the best parts of Fox’s (former “TNF” partner) telecast and added great statistical focus. For those who previously tuned into “TNF” on Fox through a cable subscription, the only way to access these games now is through a Prime Video subscription. Thanksgiving will still be nationally televised.

“Watching The boys That’s how I really appreciated Karl Urban’s talent for character development. This superhero series shows the madness of living in a politically charged superworld and the incredible danger that comes with it.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

“If you like shows like Calm your enthusiasm, fraser or witty humor in general, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is a must watch. Supporting actor Tony Shalhoub’s undertone of genius aside, Rachel Brosnahan crushes it as a rising comedian in a male-dominated industry. Everyone in the cast is hilarious both individually and together.

“Prime Video has been a source for many of my favorite TV shows and movies. After years of waiting for a sequel, I was grateful to have Eddie Murphy’s Coming 2 America are coming exclusively to Prime Video, especially at a time when many theaters have been temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 crisis. I was also a huge fan of Tom Clancy’s Remorseless, which premiered on Prime Video in 2021, and loved binge series like Fleabag and Sneaky Pete.

Lizzo watch out for big grrrls

“A few months ago I found out that my friend Sydney Bell was going to be on a brand new reality show hosted by Lizzo on Prime Video. I’m a huge reality TV fan and was so excited to see my mate on the big screen, so I knew I had to tune in. Lizzo watch out for big grrrls was a competitive reality show like I had never seen before. It centered on several women competing to become Lizzo’s new supporting dancers and focused on inclusion, body positivity and female empowerment. Overall it was such a fun watch and it was amazing to see my friend on TV. I recommend it to any reality TV/competition fan. Plus, he even won 3 Emmys last year, so don’t just take my word for it.

“I looked at Amazon power rings, which explores JRR Tolkien’s Middle-earth long before the events of the original The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. I was skeptical at first, but the grittier tone and drama helps establish a different kind of story between the powers of good and evil. Grow as LOTR fan, it’s really fascinating to see the origins of some of my favorite characters.
