Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan

Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan

The biggest challenge facing Jack Ryan after season one was whether the series could keep up the pace. Perfectly built for a binge-watch, season one was relentless and barely paused for breath.

Season two ups the ante, making the first outing look like the gentle warm-up exercise before this wild sprint. John Hoogenakker (Matice) leads a covert team in an outrageous jungle mission. John Krasinski showcases his fitness in a rooftop chase across the London skyline, and Noomi Rapace is involved in a nerve-wracking cat-and-mouse storyline.

Jack Ryan season two keeps a dozen plates spinning that will have you gasping and clicking the 'next episode' button - no matter how late in the evening you're watching.

The Man in the High Castle

The big budget dystopian drama have been a major hit with TV fans and has picked up Emmy Awards along the way.
Based on the alternate history novel by Philip K. Dick, The Man in the High Castle reimagines America in 1962 as though Nazi Germany had won World War II. After the conflict ends, the United States is split between Nazi Germany and Japan.

Check out all four dramatic seasons streaming right now.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Marvelous Mrs Maisel season 3

Rachel Brosnahan (House of Cards) stars in this Golden Globe-winning comedy drama, which is set in 1958 New York and comes from the creator of Gilmore Girls.

Described by one critic as “Mad Men with feminine flair”, The Marvellous Mrs. Maisel follows the transformation of a beautiful Jewish New Yorker who seems to have the perfect family life only to have it ripped away from her by a cheating husband.

The fallout from the affair and Midge Maisel’s discovery that she’s a talented stand-up comic kickstart the series which is a hilarious, charming and utterly addictive.

Season 3 lands on Prime Video on Friday, December 6th.

Coming soon…
