Top 5 Shows to Watch on Amazon Prime Right Now (April)
If you?re trying to figure out what to watch next, a great place to start are the Tipstor? Top 5 shows on Amazon Prime Video right now, and none of these titles are currently available on Netflix.
1.?Tales From The Loop
This latest mind-bending sci-fi offering from Amazon Prime Video was created by Nathaniel Halpert ? one of the minds behind FX?s Legion and Netflix?s The Killing. So yeah, it?s weird. It?s also dramatically rich in ways few sci-fi series are these days. The basic premise revolves around a group of people who live in a small town built on top of ?The Loop,? a machine built to unlock the mysteries of the universe. When they start experiencing strange phenomena, they?re forced to dig into the real reason the machine was created and what their role in the grander scheme of things might really be.
Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, and Anders Holm star in this office comedy about three buddies who work 9 to 5?s at a telemarketing agency and live together on their downtime. The bros clash with their boss and coworkers while getting into all kinds of shenanigans at home, mostly because they try to extend their hard-partying days into adulthood.
3.?Mozart in the Jungle
Created by Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman, and Paul Weitz,?Mozart in the Jungle?stars Gael Garc?a Bernal as an orchestra conductor and Lola Kirke as an oboist/prot?g?. The cast is rounded out with beloved actors like Malcolm McDowell and Bernadette Peters, and familiar faces like Safron Burrows.?Mozart?is sweet and low-key. Viewers who like Canada?s exceptional?Slings and Arrows?will like?Mozart in the Jungle?because it?s essentially?Slings and Arrows?with classical music instead of Shakespeare. It is frothy and fun, and an absolute pleasure to watch, even if it is not exactly essential television.
4.?The Man in the High Castle
Loosely based on Phillip K. Dick?s 1962 novel of the same name (it also bears some resemblance to Philip Roth?s?The Plot Against America),?The Man in the High Castle?is set in an alternative, dystopian world where Germany won World War II. Basically, the East Coast is occupied by the Germans, and the West Coast is occupied by the Japanese, and there?s a no-man?s land in between. Exec-produced by Ridley Scott and Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files), the series sees various characters working to form a resistance against their occupation by collecting ?forbidden newsreels? that show the alternate history in which the Allies won the war in an effort to reveal a larger truth about how the world?should?be. A dark exploration of what it means to be American,?The?Man in the High Castle?is a well-acted, tense, and often violent dystopian thriller with plenty of twists and turns to keep viewers guessing.
