Transparent (S1-2)

Amazon’s been trying to “do a Netflix” by creating its very own blockbusting TV shows for ages now, but this is the first time it’s got it right. For a start, Transparent is really bold - it tells the story of a sixty-something divorcee announcing to his three grown-up kids that he’s always felt different and is now going to live as a woman.

Sounds heavy, and it sort of is, but it’s also darkly funny, with a degree of wit and sharpness that’s still rare even in this golden age of TV. The bickering between the three kids (each of whom is riddled with their own individual problems and peccadillos) is as chucklesome as it is awkward and real. Amazing telly.

EDGE OF TOMORROW

If you're someone who thought Groundhog Day was lacking in the aliens and guns department, Edge of Tomorrow is the film for you. Here, the backdrop to the time loop is an alien invasion on Earth, and every time Tom Cruise's character dies he's reset to the day before the huge, disastrous battle that signals the beginning of the end for humanity.

With every replay he tries to make a tiny bit more headway into finding a way to defeat the seemingly undefeatable aliens (and smooch Emily Blunt), and the loneliness, fruitlessness and frustration of the task at hand make the film surprisingly poignant.

Don't worry, it's also got plenty of action and Tom Cruise is once again charming enough for you to forget that he's a massive loony in real life.

Bosch (S1-2)

Exclusive to Amazon Prime’s and based on Michael Connelly’s crime novels, this show stars Titus Welliver as the eponymous Los Angeles detective. Bosch, it has to be said, is something of a clichéd telly cop (haunted by a troubled past; ex-military; bit of a loose cannon; distrustful of and distrusted by the top brass; damn fine at his job), but thanks to a twisty, turny plot, Welliver’s charismatic performance and a fine supporting cast, it's perfect binge-watch material, and with the second season recently arriving on Amazon, there's now twice as much material to get your teeth into.

SNEAKY PETE

With Bryan Cranston as both chief villain and executive producer, Sneaky Pete sounds like the perfect choice for Breaking Bad fans looking for a new fix.

In truth, this Amazon Original (available to stream in gorgeous 4K) stands well enough on its own merits, having little in common with Cranston’s other show aside from a plethora of tense situations from which our hero – a likeable conman played by Giovanni Ribisi – must extract himself through a combination of luck and skill. Well, that’s going to happen when you show up on a family’s doorstep falsely claiming to be their long-lost grandson.

With a charming rogue’s gallery of a cast and a story that keeps you gripped and guessing until the end, Sneaky Pete is one of the few Amazon Originals that can go toe-to-toe with Netflix’s best series. A second season is expected soon.

SEINFELD (S1-9)

Rejoice, for “the show about nothing” has finally come to an India streaming service; now Prime customers have the perfect excuse to plough through all nine seasons of Jerry Seinfeld’s beloved sitcom.

An inventive, absurd and hilarious examination of the trivialities of modern life, never relying on slapstick or coddling viewers with cheap sentimentality, Seinfeld is quite simply a must-watch for all fans of comedy. With each episode clocking in at a little over 20 minutes, it’s also great fare for binge watching. Be warned: your Sundays will be eaten right up.
