Prime Video

Your weekend TV sorted | Life

Prime Video Prime Video Amazon Video Now I know what you’re thinking, Nafisah, you’re cheating on Netflix, which in part I guess is true but I am happy to say I have a good well rounded relationship with both streaming platforms.

Cool, so now we got that out of that, I recently started using Amazon prime video after I had an itch to watch Bend it Like Beckham so after using my sisters account (with her permission) I had a good snoop and discovered some gems I needed to shout about and before I knew it, my weekend TV was sorted.

Greys Anatomy
I know I know where have I been but I actually missed out on Greys Anatomy the first time around but I am a huge fan of Shonda Rhimes so decided to make time to invest in the show and I am so glad I did. I download it to watch on the tube and it by far one of my favourite parts of the day. I only started a week ago and I am already on season two.

So for some reason Empire is really hard to watch in the UK. I think you can only get it on Five Star or something so I ended up giving up trying to watch it after season two. Season three however is free with prime so I happily indulged and was hooked like you cannot believe. If you don’t know Empire is about a music mogul Lucius Lyon and his estranged family. The show is incredibly well written and features some amazing music. Season three also tackles issues such as mental health, gun violence and discrimination towards people of colour.

Bollywood Films
I don’t often talk about it but I do have w good soft for old Bollywood films and there is a good selection to choose from on Prime Video. From Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to more up to date films such as Paramvarti.

Famous in Love
This one will definitely divide people but I absolutely adored watching Famous In Love. There was something hauntingly beautiful about it. The show follows Bella Thrones Character Paige Townsen as she gets to live out her dream as an actress in Hollywood – and all the turmoil which comes with it. Unfortunately, the show got cut after two seasons but there is a lot more to this show than meets the eye.

The Bold Type
This was the show that got me flicking through the Amazon Prime Video catalogue. I read a tweet stating it was a show for the woke millennial and I couldn’t agree more. It follows three friends who are working at a magazine in New York. They are essentially living out my teenage dream. The show is written incredibly well and tackles issues in a relatable way without being preachy. Season three is on its way soon and I cannot wait!

I feel like I’ve only just touched the surface. As you can see my watch list is pretty full and I cannot wait to dig deeper into what it has to offer.
