List Rules Must be TV shows available for streaming on Amazon Prime

The best streaming Amazon Prime TV shows and television series feature many of the most memorable TV characters of all time as seen in some great television dramas, sci-fi/fantasy shows, sitcoms and reality TV programs. What are the best shows on Amazon Prime? With so many choices, how can anyone decide which show to watch? Some might opt to revisit old favorites, like Twin Peaks and Cheers, while other viewers are looking to check out some of the best TV shows of recent memory (like The Wire and The Sopranos) that they missed during their original runs.

What TV shows are streaming on Amazon Prime? This list is all about deciding which Amazon Prime streaming TV shows are the ones that are must-see television. Be sure to vote for your personal favorites and vote down any shows you just couldn't get through. Also, feel free to add any great streaming Amazon Prime shows that aren't listed.

Having a lot of options is not exactly a bad thing, but with the multitude of available Amazon Prime streaming television programs, it can be a little overwhelming. Sure, Amazon Prime "suggests" shows for you, but let's face it: sometimes that doesn't work out so well. Just because you adore American Horror Story does not mean you'll necessarily go for Hannibal, for example. Hopefully, if you're on the fence about committing to a particular streaming TV show on Amazon Prime, this list can help you out a bit.

Whether you're into heavier dramas like Sons of Anarchy, Falling Skies, or Grimm, first-rate comedies like Eastbound & Down and Entourage or the excellent science fiction TV programs like Doctor Who, you can easily get sucked in to a new favorite show watching Amazon Prime streaming. There really is something out there for everyone!
