The best original Amazon Prime Video series (August 2020)

his original series– and the truth is that there are more and more titles to choose from. “Data-reactid =” 12 “> Browsing through the huge library of series on Amazon Prime Video can be exhausting, especially when you want to find something that is really worthwhile. Digital Trends in Spanish we know very well, and to make things easier we have put together a list of the best original titles available on this streaming platform. It’s about series internally produced by Amazon Studios –In the same way that Netflix produces its original series– and the truth is that there are more and more titles to choose from.

Stana Katic plays an FBI agent who was pronounced dead “in absentia,” but reappears six years later. All this time, the FBI believed her to be one more victim of the serial killer whom she had been hunting at the time of her disappearance. Now, the agent sets out to recover her family and identity, trying to resume her life after a heartbreaking and mysterious absence. However, her return also implicates her in a series of mysterious murders, forcing her to prove her innocence.

In the not-too-distant future, near-death humans will have the option of charging their consciousness into lavish virtual reality lives. When Nathan (Robbie Amell) is in a car accident, he must choose to undergo a complex operation and risk real death … or move into the digital life of Lakeview. He chooses the latter, where he meets Nora (Andy Allo), his customer service representative still alive. As Nathan gets used to a personalized afterlife (loaded with ads and shopping), Nora navigates the personal and financial struggles of her real world. The limits are blurred as the two characters build a relationship that extends beyond reality … although the latter we do not know very well what it means.

Based on a series of Michael Connelly novels, Bosch is one of the best crime thrillers, faithfully reproducing the original material without falling into the same shortcomings that plague many adaptations. Detective Hieronymus “Harry” Bosch (Deadwood actor Titus Welliver) is a morally honest man who is not afraid to twist the rules to do justice to those who deserve it.

Although the description sounds cheesy, somehow the series is not. Amazon’s vision of a gloomy and unromantic Los Angeles integrates seamlessly into the Bosch story, which is both a crime story and a fascinating drama. The slow pace of the series is sublime, and the characters, even the least relevant, are carefully written, mostly avoiding boring gender stereotypes. If you like police shows, this is one of the best.“data-reactid =” 52 “> Based on a series of Michael Connelly novels, Bosch is one of the best crime thrillers, faithfully reproducing the original material without falling into the same shortcomings that plague many adaptations.

As grim and shockingly violent as it is clever, the series also offers a powerful deconstruction of traditional superhero stories, and presents a world in which superpowers, corporate greed, and media consolidation have been bled to death to create a form of corruption particularly terrifying. The audience sees it all through the eyes of Hughie, an average guy who is brutally changed by a chance encounter with a superhero.

Catastrophe

Amazon has the exclusive American broadcast rights to this British comedy starring Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan as an incompatible couple who meet in London and, after a week of windswept passion, experience the ultimate catastrophe – pregnancy.

Delaney and Horan have outstanding chemistry as the constantly contentious and culturally conflicting couple who are nonetheless committed to making it work for the baby.

Although it has an impressive supporting cast that includes William Hurt, Maria Bello, Olivia Thirlby, Molly Parker and Mark Duplass, the series is led by Thornton’s excellent performance as the former lawyer now fighting against a legal system, which seems be against your clients instead of favoring them. The role awarded Thornton a Golden Globe Award for “Best Actor of the Year in a Drama Series” at the 2017 ceremony.

The Grand Tour

If you liked Top Gear and have never seen The Grand Tour, get ready for what awaits you. The entire team, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May, and executive producer Andy Wilman, migrated to Amazon after Clarkson was pulled from the BBC show after allegations of disagreements allegedly resulted in a physical fight, but it still appears that the team is better than ever.

Like its predecessor, this series expertly combines legitimate automotive journalism with somewhat ridiculous jokes and situations, thanks to the interaction between the hosts. The show travels the world for numerous special episodes, including one involving charitable efforts in Mozambique and another in Dubai with SUVs or sand buggies. Basically, this show is like a Top Gear reissue, but if you like cars, you should see it.

The Man in the High Castle

What would have happened if the Axis Powers (an alliance composed of Germany, Japan and Italy) Would they have emerged victorious from World War II? That is the question asked by The Man In The High Castle, a dramatic and highly stylized adaptation of the 1962 novel of the same name, written by Philip K. Dick. Set in the early 1960s in a novel dystopian past, the Third Reich and the Japanese Empire maintain divided control over the continental United States.

When a dangerous propaganda film reaches the hands of revolutionary groups, an underground conflict over the truth of the war begins, as an aging Adolf Hitler prepares to relinquish control of the Reich, and several prominent members of the party compete for a opportunity in power. The pace is slow, but the performance, especially that of Rufus Sewell as Obergruppenführer John Smith, deserves patience.
