Finding something to look through the Prime Videos extensive library can be daunting. The streaming service has tens, perhaps even tens of thousands of shows. Where can you even begin?
Rotten Tomatoes (opens in a new tab) can provide some guidance. The reviews aggregator has identified scores for television shows and films based on what critics and audiences have to say. You may also seek out ones that are certified fresh, meaning at least 60 percent of reviews are positive.
You can watch a show with a 90 percent score or higher, basically a A level, for a completely no-brainer choice. Here are nine Prime Video original films that claimed the recognition.
Fleabag (2016 - 2019)
Fleabag is sharp as a scalpel, highly profane, and very raunchy in its portrayal of the main characters trying to hold together the pieces of her life while mourning her dead best friend. Fleabag''s sexual escapades, family disputes, and selfish behavior are all amusing (as is her witty, fourth-wall-breaking commentary), but it becomes clear that she is broken inside.
She embarks on a journey of self-improvement by focusing on improving her cafe business and going to therapy. Slowly, she maintains her relationship with sister Claire (Sian Clifford), but her life is soon downended by the introduction of a Hot Priest (Andrew Scott).

The Kids in the Hall (2022)
The children are back in the Hall even if they are not kids anymore. A revival of their dazzling sketch show has been made by the iconic Canadian comedy company. Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson are both older, but they are probably not any wiser than they were when the series began.
They are now introducing new ones in the same form of provocative, smart-and-stupid sketches as previously. They also welcome some friends in their comeos, including Pete Davidson, Catherine O''Hara, Kenan Thompson, and Will Forte. The eight episodes are accompanied by The Kids in the Hall: Comedy Punks, a two-part documentary about the five kids and their careers.

Invincible (2021 present)
What if your dad was Superman and you inherited his powers? That''s what Robert Kirkman''s Invincible comic books are given (Kirkman, though, is well-known for co-creating The Walking Dead).
Steven Yeun, a Walking Dead alum, voicing the role of Mark Grayson, a perfectly normal teen whose father Nolan (J.K. Simmons) is secretly the superhero Omni-Man. At the time Mark turns 17, he also gain abilities like flight, strength, speed, etc. Invincible comes across at first as a lighthearted superhero comedy but be prepared for a dark side.

A Very English Scandal (2018)
Hugh Grant might have made a name for himself in romantic comedy, but A Very English Scandal proves his remarkable bonafides. The limited series based on the true story of Jeremy Thorpe, a member of Parliament whose career was destroyed by a sexual harassment in the late 70s.

The Expanse (2015 - 2022)
Other Netflix programs are rarely saved by Amazon. The Expanse, a Syfy rescue, is the rare exception. It was evident a good move on Amazon''s part, since the program sounded quite popular enough to last three seasons.
In a future in which humanity has colonized the solar system, tensions have escalated between Earth and Mars until the brink of conflict, which United Nations executive Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo) has fought. At the same time, attacks by unknown ships result in James Holden (Steven Strait) taking command of the ship Rocinante. Along with Detective Joe Miller (Thomas Jane), the Rocinantes team is uncovered into a

A League of Their Own (2022)
While many male players battled in World War II, rebooting classic films is almost always a bad idea, but the new series version of A League of Their Own may be an exception. Like the movie, it was established in the 1940s when the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League was founded. The new approach combines classics baseball action and roosting feminism with deeper explorations of race and sexuality.
This is seen in the presence of a Black lead alongside Abbi Jacobsons Carson, who is also expected to have a sexual awakening, as Carson is drawn to teammate Greta (D''Arcy Carden). But Nick Offermans'' gruff manager Dove Porter does not seem to be familiar with Tom Hanks Jimmy Dugan. There is no crying in baseball!

The Underground Railroad(2021)
The author of Moonlight brings his signature, elegant touch to the Colson Whiteheads Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. The result is a stunning piece of art, rich with stunning photographs that are equally horrifying and unnatural. You cant look, but you cant also look to the country''s ugly history, both in reality and in the alternative America of the limited series.
The Underground Railroad isn''t just a concept; it is an actual working train system, which includes tracks, cars, and other facilities. Cora (Thuso Mbedu) is an enslaved woman who uses it to escape, but a ruthless slave catcher (Joel Edgerton) is on her heels. Her harrowing journey is brutal, but also marked by moments of hope.

The Boys (2019 - present)
The superheroes are problematic and have really exploded in recent years, though The Boys may be the most cynical of them all. It may also be the goriest of all the exploding body components!
The seven are a fictional cast set in a world in which relatively wealthy individuals are distinguished, although the most famous of them are members of Vought International, which sells them as heroes. After one of the victims kills his girlfriend, Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid) is fired for vengeance. Their boss Billy Butcher is deposed by the Homelander (Antony Starr)

The Summer I Turned Pretty (2022 - present)
The Jenny Hans YA series To All the Boys was integrated into three popular movies on Netflix, which included Lana Condor and Noah Centineo.
