UPDATE: With Halloween slowly creeping up on us, it’s the perfect time to binge-watch the Exorcist TV show, which has just made it into our best Amazon Prime TV shows list. It thankfully doesn’t retread too much on the classic movie, but expands the mythos and houses a number of fantastic scares. Oh, and it has one of the best actresses around in it – the imitable Geena Davis.
Those looking for more of a laugh than a scare, then should head straight to Red Oaks. The third and final season of this superb coming-of-age show is a fantastic watch, charting the ups and downs of ’80s college student David (a brilliant Craig Roberts).
If you’re going to binge-watch, then make sure you’re doing it properly, and Amazon’s competitive Netflix rival is a good place to start. This is our pick of the best shows on Amazon Prime Video, the TV series that we have been watching and loving on what has become one of the most popular streaming services around.
