    sadly most of those shows where not available here in the UK

    I cancelled my subscription last month--did not like the options I had and how they seemingly always tried to push me to buy shows

    I got Amazon prime recently mainly for the free shipping heading into the holiday season, but also used it to watch Jack Ryan. I'm not too impressed with the streaming service. I'm disappointed that it doesn't work easily with a chromecast. The selection of movies was disappointing as well.

    I've been loving all the old Evening At The Improv episodes to have on in the background while I work. Used to watch that w/a friend in the morning before high school in 99/00, and it's bringing back a lot of memories!

    Agreed. The thing that drives me nuts is the free and pay per view content are not separate. You see something, get excited, and then realize it's pay per view.

    There's a thread about the new Deadwood movie. You can watch the original show here on AP.

    Prime is very helpful for those long train rides into the city for Caps games. I end up watching Prime on the train and tune everyone else out.

    Recently been watching a Japanese drama called "Tokyo Girl" on Amazon Prime. They have a few Japanese shows there which are pretty interesting.

    Emeril Lagasse also has a show on Amazon Prime. It's also pretty good and won awards.

    Pleasantly surprised to see Star Trek and a sequel on Prime. Those are good movies. More on that in another thread, ended up watching the 2009 one on the way to and from a Capitals event last night. Good movie.

    That being said I have to go to the Caps game tonight and I was looking for movies this morning to download. I couldn't seem to find any that were interesting. They were largely Indiana Jones movies and westerns. I may watch those another time, but not today.

    I got Amazon prime Mainly for the two day shipping but also because of The Expanse. I was able to see that series in the summer and I have been rewatching it. Unfortunately I I found out they made a mistake and won't be bringing out season 3 on the 15th and I ended up buying it on iTunes earlier in the week.

    I really haven't watched a movie. I would like to get into Man In The High Castle though, which I've heard is good.

    Man In The High Castle is why I don’t cancel my Prime membership. Well, that and the cheaper shipping.

    Similar reasons I'm not cancelling mine. The selection of TV and Movies seems a little thin to me and few of them are interesting or I already own them.

    I am enjoying Patriot for how odd of a TV show it is.

    Yeah, the selection for Canada, like Netflix, is extremely weak compared to the States and Britain. I haven’t checked out Patriot yet, but I did enjoy the first season of Sneaky Pete.

    I found Married...With Children on Prime. With the proper, Frank Sinatra "Love & Marriage" intro.
    Also found the two Addams Family movies, watched them for the first time.
    There's lots of stuff on there if you're in the right demographic.

    I've been watching Justified on prime. I'm enjoying it, almost done with season 2.

    We have prime, for the shipping though. Haven't watched a whole lot on their, just a few shows.

    Yes I did notice that. Sad that they're taking stuff off now. There are a few tv shows that I like but the prime exclusives aren't really programs that really appeal to me (other than Jack Ryan,which I'm still stuck on episode 2. Been on that episode for a while now.)

    A tv show written by Sandman creator and show runner Neil Gaiman based on a book by Neil Gaiman where David Tennant plays a demon, Michael Sheen plays an angel, and Jon Hamm is in it. All the cool kids will be watching.

    Found Banshee on Prime, which has the first 2 seasons, and quickly became one of my favorite shows.
