The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

What are you all watching for free?

I was about to sign up for a month of Netflix to watch Spirit of the Marathon since I'm watching part II at the theater next month and was happy to see Amazon has it as part of Prime Videos.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

Amazon Prime's strength lies in its TV shows: Justified, The Good Wife, Bunheads (Gilmore Girls 2.0), Suits, Grimm, The Shield

The "newer" movies are more or less the same on Netflix and Prime (Hunger Games, What to Expect When You're Expecting, Cabin in the Woods, Safe, etc; ) TBH, I mostly just use Netflix and have Amazon Prime as a bonus. I use it more now that I have a Roku 3 w/ that search functionality, but it's still my secondary streaming service.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

What's wrong with the current topic discussing Amazon instant freebies and interesting other things to watch?

They don't specifically address what's free all the time for Amazon Prime, I think it's a different enough kind of topic.

Viacom made a deal with Amazon, so MTV shows, Comedy Central shows and Nick/Nick Jr shows will be returning there.

I'd recommend the second season of Alphas for fans of adult-oriented superhero fantasy. Yes, it does end on a cliffhanger that will never be resolved.

Rubicon is available. Fantastic one season series that did a slow burn over 13 episodes. The final episode was disappointing, but the first 12 were terrific.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

Just finished up the first two seasons of Falling Skies last weekend. Might have to buy season 3 since it'll be nearly a year before it goes up on Amazon Streaming.

Also just finished up season 1 of Sons of Anarchy last night. I will probably take a quick break to rewatch Breaking Bad season 5 part 1 on Netflix, before returning to SoA to hopefully catch up before it returns for the new season.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

Just noticed that Paprika is on here, been meaning to rewatch it for some time. It's the subbed version.

It's Ghost in the Shell to Inception's Matrix. If that makes any sense.




Also happy to see Audition and Perfume: The Story of a Murderer on there.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

I finished up Justified season 3 this past week. Gonna obviously wait a bit before they make season 4 available for PRIME. Started Suits season 2 in the meantime. I did watch the first episode of Falling Skies but am not sure I want to keep going, because I was not impressed at all by it.

Re: The Amazon Prime Streaming Thread

I've been watching some of the BBC type shows my local PBS station airs but always interrupts for fund drives. Now I'm about a season ahead watching "Larkrise to Candleford" (yes I watch shows little girls like) and have been watching old Dr Who shows when the real Doctor, Tom Baker, was on it.

Eastenders....I'd forgotten about that show. Used to watch when I lived in Northern Virginia/Washington, DC area. I suspect too much time has passed to even know the characters now. My local PBS is showing "Death in Paradise" after. OK I guess but I tend to watch it.

Thrilled to see they added season 5 of Pawn Stars. Now I suddenly have 50 new Pawn Stars episodes to watch.

Is that the show where one of the former cast members was decapitated by her looney bin brother?

I was surprised by that too, but Pawn Stars season 5 has 58 episodes. They premiered 2 episodes a week for the good part of a year:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...Stars_episodes

If you've ever seen the show, it's pretty clear that they could probably film multiple episodes in a day. The formula of the show is basically:
  • Person comes in with an item to pawn.
  • Employee discusses the history of the item and gives an appraisal
  • They haggle on the price. A price is agreed upon.
  • Person leaves and talks to camera.

Rinse, repeat a dozen or so times a day.
