One of Prime Video's biggest series, The Boys, has now drawn its fourth season to a close with the dramatic finale which paves the way for the fifth and final season.

So, it's a good thing that a new series has come on the scene ready to fill the gap of gory violence left in the wake of The Boys. Roman epic Those About to Die is a tale about the cross-section of Ancient Roman society who were bored, restless and entertained by bloody entertainment.

With a star-studded cast featuring the likes of Iwan Rheon, Anthony Hopkins and Sara Martins, the 10-episode series is surely the pick for a weekend binge-watch.

Elsewhere, the full season of Sausage Party: Foodtopia is now streaming, which follows up on the hit 2016 adult animated film starring Seth Rogen and Kristen Wiig.

If you're looking for a taste of period drama, My Lady Jane is just the ticket, a fantasy series telling an alternate history of Lady Jane Grey and has quickly become the talking point of Prime Video since its release.

Of course, that's not all. Prime Video also has a wide range of other originals available, including Clarkson's Farm, which recently released its third season, Josh Brolin's sci-fi Western mash-up Outer Range and hit video game adaptation Fallout.

Other options such as Invincible, Reacher and Mr & Mrs Smith are also available, as are some fan-favourite acquired titles, such as the US version of The Office and Bad Education.

If you need more inspiration for navigating Prime Video's vast library, we're here to help, picking the best titles you can find on the streamer and updating this list with new entries every week.

So, without further ado, here are the top titles on Amazon Prime Video for UK viewers.

  • Those About To Die

    • 2024
    • Drama
    • History

    Summary:

    Daniel P Mannix's 1958 book Those About To Die provided the creative inspiration for Ridley Scott's Oscar-winning 2000 film Gladiator. The same tome is brought vividly to life in a lavish 10-part sword and sandals epic directed by Roland Emmerich and Marco Kreuzpaintner. In 79 AD Rome, ageing Emperor Vespasian (Sir Anthony Hopkins) makes preparations to hand over this throne to one of his sons, Titus Flavanius (Tom Hughes) and Domitian (Jojo Macari). Sibling rivalry epitomises tensions at the beating heart of the Roman Empire, where chariot races and gladiator fights at Circus Maximus sate the bloodlust of a restless and increasingly violent population. To appease the people, Vespasian presides over the construction of a gargantuan new stadium, the Colosseum, specially designed for gladiatorial and animal combat. Thousands of slave labourers toil to build the behemoth in a city riddled with greed and corruption

    Why watch Those About to Die?:

    If you're a fan of action-packed drama, ancient Roman battles and gladiator-core (ahead of the anticipated Gladiator sequel, of course) then this has to be the next watch for you. Some have likened it to Game of Thrones for its violence and gore, which is to be expected as it does tell the tale of those who worked and died for the games that form the city's major source of entertainment.

    While it starts off as mere chariot-racing, soon, appetites turn to gladiator combat and the Colosseum is built. If you're looking for a history lesson here then Those About to Die isn't the most accurate, rather it's a refreshing alternate history series that will have you gripped.

  • Sausage Party: Foodtopia

    • 2024
    • Drama
    • Animation
    • 18

    Summary:

    Adult animation. After standing up to the human race, Frank and his friends establish a safe haven dubbed Foodtopia. Following a massive flood that destroys their once promised land, they have no choice but to partner with humans to ensure the survival of their race

    Why watch Sausage Party: Foodtopia?:

    Eight years after Seth Rogen's adult animated film Sausage Party arrived in cinemas and scandalised audiences around the world, the main cast are all back in this eight-episode follow-up, which sees the food establishing a safe haven dubbed Foodtopia, but finding they have to team up with humans following a massive flood.

    If you weren't a fan of the first film or its style of humour, then this definitely won't be for you - the series is just as crude and shock-inducing as ever, with a near-the-knuckle sense of humour which clashes gloriously with its animation style. However, if you were a fan of the film, this is a strong, well-devised follow-up which retains everything that made the film the deliciously ridiculous piece of entertainment that it was.

    • Fantasy

    Summary:

    Tudor bloodlines are rewritten in a rollicking historical fantasy romance adapted from the book of the same title penned by Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand and Jodi Meadows. Contrary to pages from history, King Henry VIII's son Edward does not die of tuberculosis and 16th-century noblewoman Lady Jane Grey (Emily Bader) does not lose her head after nine days as the Queen of England. Instead, she seizes control of herdestiny flanked by scoundrel husband Guildford Dudley (Edward Bluemel). Jane's mother, Lady Frances Grey (Anna Chancellor), and Guildford's father, Lord Dudley (Rob Brydon), are entangled in the machinations and skulduggery along with Jane's uncle, the Duke of Leicester (Jim Broadbent)

    Why watch My Lady Jane?:

    While it may seem like the only period drama anyone talks about these days is Bridgerton, Prime Video have just released a riotous new series that's set to delve deep into a gloriously reimagined tale.

    The alternative story sees the Queen of England skip the beheading we know about from the history books. Instead, she goes on her own journey of true love, adventure, sex and more, all while trying to narrowly avoid the nefarious villains who want the crown on her head. If you're looking for something that's light-hearted, terribly addictive to watch and just plain fun, then this new eight-parter could just be the watchlist highlight for you.

    • Drama
    • 18

    Summary:

    Superheroes abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. Fantasy drama, starring Karl Urban, Jack Quaid and Antony Starr

    Why watch The Boys?:

    One of Prime Video's best-known and best-loved shows, The Boys, is back for its fourth season, and the end is now in sight. Showrunner Eric Kripke has confirmed that the adult superhero series, an adaptation of the comics series of the same name, will come to an end with its fifth run, meaning we only have so many more adventures with Butcher, Hughie and Starlight left to looks forward to.

    The series continues to focus on the battle between a rag-tag group of vigilantes and the world's most powerful superheroes, the latter of whom are outrageous, power hungry monsters who need to be stopped. Every episode is still a riot from start to finish, but isn't for the faint of heart – filled with some of the most grotesque violence and shockingly depraved sequences you'll see on TV, The Boys really does take things to another level.

    In spite of all this, one of The Boys' best attributes is actually its sense of humour, with an unapologetically satirical edge providing the show with a fun-factor that some of superhero shows just don't have.

    Summary:

    Crime drama, following Chief Inspector Armand Gamache as he investigates cases beneath the idyllic surface of the Quebec village, Three Pines, finding long-buried secrets and facing a few ghosts of his own. Starring Alfred Molina, Rossif Sutherland and Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers

    Why watch Three Pines?:

    In among a sea of detective dramas and crime thrillers, it can be hard to see the wood for the trees and work out which of them are worth a watch. Thankfully, you can't go wrong with Alfred Molina's Prime series Three Pines, an adaptation of the Chief Inspector Armand Gamache novel series by Louise Penny.

    Featuring both succinct two episode mysteries alongside a longer mystery which runs across the series surrounding missing young women, the series has a distinct setting and feel to it, and a stand-out performance from Molina. It might not break the detective series mould, but the stories are engaging, the characters compelling and the visuals spectacular.

    Summary:

    Anthology horror series with varying characters and locations by season, featuring different aspects of the horror genre. Starring Deborah Ayorinde, Ashley Thomas and Shahadi Wright Joseph

    Why watch Them: The Scare?:

    While the first season of this horror anthology drew a mixed response from viewers and critics, the long-awaited second edition has enjoyed a warmer reception with its dark and suspenseful tale.

    Them: The Scare takes us to Los Angeles in the early 1990s, where detective Dawn Reeve (Deborah Ayorinde) is tasked with finding the person responsible for the gruesome murder of a foster mother. However, there's more to this case than she could ever have imagined – and it isn't long before a sinister force begins to target her and her family.

    The new season has been praised for its powerhouse performance from Ayorinde, who co-stars opposite screen legend Pam Grier (Jackie Brown) and singer-songwriter Luke James (The Chi). Meanwhile, its handling of ever-present themes such as institutional racism and generational trauma has also been highly lauded.

    This being an anthology, you could dive straight into the new episodes if you'd prefer, although there is one connecting element that becomes present towards the end of season 2.

    Summary:

    A young Clark Kent struggles to find his place in the world as he learns to harness his alien powers for good and deals with the typical troubles of teenage life in Smallville, Kansas. Superhero adventure following the early escapades of Clark Kent, starring Tom Welling

    Why watch Smallville?:

    Counting down the days until James Gunn's reinvention of Superman hits cinemas? Us too.

    One way to tide yourself over would be to dive back into The CW's Smallville, which is available in full on Prime Video and chronicles the early years of a certain Clark Kent (Tom Welling). Like any 'monster-of-the-week' show, not every episode is gold, but there are plenty of great characters to get invested in across the ten-season run.

    The early episodes boast a particularly compelling dynamic between Clark and Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum), who begin as friends, but gradually morph into the bitter rivals we know from the DC comic books. As the show goes on, expect plenty of superhero cameos, including early attempts at Aquaman (played by Reacher's Alan Ritchson, no less) and Blue Beetle.

    Why watch Clarkson's Farm?:

    Love him or loathe him, there's no getting away from Mr Jeremy Clarkson, with the latest season of his farming docuseries proving just as popular as the first two. This time, the broadcaster made it his mission to settle a family of pigs on Diddly Squat, while also trialling various methods of making money from an unused plot of land.

    Expect ups and downs, mischief and arguments, and plenty more entertaining banter between Clarkson and his Diddly Squat co-worker Kaleb Cooper. The show has already been renewed for a fourth season, so this won't be our final update about life on the farm.

    • 15

    Summary:

    Medical drama, starring Freddie Highmore as a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, trying to make his way in a prestigious big-city hospital

    Why watch The Good Doctor?:

    Believe it or not, The Good Doctor was one of the most-watched shows on US network television during its first three seasons, but never found quite the same popularity on these shores. That's despite the star being recognisable Brit talent Freddie Highmore, who shot to fame as a child in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Finding Neverland before graduating to more adult roles with Bates Motel.

    He plays Shaun Murphy, a medical doctor with autism, and his performance has been heralded as one of the show's strongest assets – even earning him a Golden Globe nomination in 2018. That said, The Good Doctor's portrayal of autism hasn't been without its detractors, with some arguing that it leans heavily on media tropes rather than offering a truly realistic exploration.

    It's an element worth considering before deciding whether to watch, but American viewers clearly found a lot to like, propelling the show to seven seasons and more than 120 episodes.

    It's a slow burn show, and not for those seeking immediate sci-fi thrills or quick, easy answers to many of the mysteries it poses. However, with such a brilliant cast including Brolin, Imogen Poots and Lili Taylor, as well as the asking of some profound questions at its core, it's well worth watching for genre fanatics and general viewers alike.

Seventeen-year-old Mark Grayson (voiced by Steven Yeun) faces the same challenges as any young man his age with one exception: his father is Omni-Man (JK Simmons), the most powerful superhero on Earth. Trapped in the shadow of his old man, Mark faces the seemingly impossible task of making an impact on the world separate from the heroic legacy of Omni-Man. The teenager develops strange powers and struggles to harness these abilities under the watchful eye of his mother Debbie (Sandra Oh). 'You need to decide what kind of hero you want to me,' she counsels him tenderly. The internal conflict threatens to tear Mark apart until he discovers that the high esteem in which his father is held might not be wholly deserved

    Why watch Invincible?:

    Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead, Minari) leads this animated series adapted from the comic book of the same name by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman. The stellar Invincible cast also includes JK Simmons, Sandra Oh, Gillian Jacobs, Walton Goggins and Zazie Beetz, in case you needed any more incentive to tune in.

    Yeun’s Mark Grayson is just a normal teenager – except for the fact that his father, Nolan (Simmons), is the most powerful superhero on the planet. But Mark’s life grows more complicated when he begins to develop powers of his own – and learns a dark secret about his family.

    Summary:

    Dystopian alternate history drama, starring Alexa Davalos and based on the 1962 novel of the same name by Philip K Dick. In 1962, the Axis powers have won the Second World War and divided the United States into the Greater Nazi Reich, with New York City as its regional capital, comprising more than half of the eastern part of the continent and the Japanese Pacific States, with San Francisco as capital, to the west.

    Why watch The Man in the High Castle:

    One of Prime Video's earliest original programmes, The Man in the High Castle ran for four seasons and made waves when it first arrived, but its viewership and interest dropped off somewhat over time. In truth, the quality of some of the episodes did the same, but that doesn't mean it's not worth revisiting the earlier seasons, if only for the intriguing concept.

    Part alternate history, part sci-fi, it was based on the novel by Philip K Dick and centred around a group of people living in North America following the Second World War, but in this universe, the Axis Powers of Nazi Germany and the Empire of Japan won the war and took control of the territory.

    When this series works, it really works, and that is in no small part thanks to some incredible production design and some terrific performances from the likes of Alexa Davalos, Rupert Evans and particularly Rufus Sewell.

    Costume drama following the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants. The ensemble cast includes Hugh Bonneville (Robert, Earl of Grantham), Maggie Smith (Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham), Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary Crawley), Elizabeth McGovern (Cora, Countess of Grantham), Penelope Wilton (Isobel Crawley), Jim Carter (Charlie Carson), Joanne Froggatt (Anna) and Laura Carmichael (Lady Edith Crawley). Highclere Castle in Hampshire, the home to the Earl and Countess of Carnarvon, provides the backdrop to the series, and is used for much of the interior filming. Outdoor scenes are shot in the Oxfordshire village of Bampton while the servants' living quarters were constructed and filmed at Ealing Studios. Originally set in 1912, "Downton Abbey" was created by Oscar-winning writer Julian Fellowes ("Gosford Park") and premiered on ITV in September 2010.

    Why watch Downton Abbey?:

    With a third film on the way, Downton Abbey continues to make headlines almost 10 years after the series ended - and it's not hard to see why. While Bridgerton has recently put a new and much-loved spin on the period drama genre, Downton remains one of the most iconic historical costume dramas of all time, having amassed a huge fanbase across its run.

    The show also helped to either launch or bolster the careers of its incredible cast, which included the likes of Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Dan Stevens and even the iconic Maggie Smith. Full of messy drama, historical landmarks and steamy romances, the show has had a cultural impact like very few others, and won a huge number of awards during its initial run. All six seasons are available to stream now.

    This is in no small part due to the star power of Jack Whitehall, who not only created the show but also played the lead role of Alfie Wickers, the most incompetent yet largely well-meaning teacher imaginable. The jokes come thick and fast, with the likes of Mathew Horne and Harry Enfield also providing memorable turns, but the show also has a real heart and characters that you can truly root for.

    New TV show based on the 2005 movie starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, here created by Francesca Sloane and Donald Glover. One asset (Glover) of a global spy agency is offered the perfect cover story for his high-risk missions: a new identity, John Smith, an arranged marriage to fellow spy Jane Smith (Maya Erskine) and a luxurious home in Manhattan to maintain the illusion of wedded bliss. John and Jane immerse themselves in the lie and publicly mark relationship milestones while they conduct espionage around the world. When they begin to experience genuine feelings for each other, the sharp-shooting operatives question their commitment to the killing game.

    Why watch Mr & Mrs Smith?:

    Recreating a film as a TV series is no easy feat but actually, this re-imagining of Mr & Mrs Smith has done a great job of taking what you thought the series was going to end up being and flipping it on its head.

    The series follows two people who are employed by a secret spy organisation to complete dangerous missions for a big sum of money. Glover and Maya Erskine star as newly appointed John and Jane Smith who, in the midst of these missions, start to develop real feelings for each other. The love story is a sweet one, interspersed with some tense action sequences, but the series also packs a punch with its star-studded cast, that will take you by surprise almost as much as how watchable this series is.

    Set against the complex tapestry of Hong Kong residents, Expats depicts a multi-faceted group of women after a single encounter sets off a chain of life-altering events that leaves everyone navigating the intricate balance between blame and accountability.

    Why watch Expats?:

    If you’ve seen Nicole Kidman in the likes of Big Little Lies or The Undoing, you’ll know she does a frazzled, wealthy mother character rather excellently – and since all of these roles feel very similar tonally, the real gems of Expats are more in the performances from her co-leads, Sarayu Blue and Ji-young Yoo.

    These three women each represent a different facet of the expat community in Hong Kong in 2014 and, set against the political backdrop of the time, the series also gives a voice to the underrepresented domestic workers who have come to the wealthy city with hopes for more. Class and privilege are interrogated with detail, while the cinematic feel of the show will keep you engaged throughout.

    Often, the situation will escalate in ways you would never have imagined, with the comedian’s deadpan, somewhat sociopathic character standing hilariously in contrast with whatever chaos is unfolding around him.
