It’s a new week and we’ll see plenty coming to Amazon Prime Video. You can watch all with your Prime membership. Here are five shows and movies to watch, including Fleabag, Poldark, and more.

This week will see plenty of great content dropping on Amazon Prime Video as part of your Prime membership. Whether you want comedy, action, or drama, there’s something for all. Here are five good recommendations for the week, including Fleabag Season 2, Poldark Season 4 and more.

King of Thieves

We’ll start with a comedic movie, which drops on May 14. Starring Michael Caine, you just knew that you’d need to watch it at least once. While not as great as The Italian Job (can anything be as good?), it is still the same Caine heist.

This time, he’s robbing in London’s jewelry district. It’s meant to be a last “hurrah” but it turns into something far more. Don’t go into this expecting a masterpiece. It’s a lot of fun if you don’t take it seriously.

The Punisher

More from Amazon

No, it’s not the Netflix TV series coming to Amazon Prime Video. This is all about the 2004 movie of the same name, based on the same character. Thomas Jane plays FBI agent Frank Castle. When his family is murdered by criminals, Frank goes on a vigilante mission as The Punisher. His aim is to get revenge but it soon turns into something more.

He wants to dismantle the entire underworld empire. This is a mission to keep everyone else safe. And it’s a little easier when the crime lord, Howard Saint (John Travolta) believes you to be dead.

The Punisher and its sequel The Punisher: War Zone are available on May 16 to stream in full.

The Durrells Season 3

If you’re looking for good British TV, then Amazon Prime Video has you covered this week. The Durrells is the first of three British productions on the list. It all starts with Louisa wanting her kids to actually clean her house and you just know how that’s going to work out. Meanwhile, Margo finds a new hobby.

There is going to be a fourth season, which will be the show’s last. That will come to PBS first and then (hopefully, depending on if things with PBS changes) come to Amazon Prime Video in about a year. For now, you’ve got The Durrells Season 3 on May 17.

Poldark Season 4

Another British drama is the show based on the period drama book series. It’s another PBS series that is finally available with your prime membership, and this season sees Prime Minister Pitt call an election. With the country thrown into uncertainty, Demelza is left torn between her husband and Hugh after infidelity.

Season 5 has been confirmed,so now is the time to get caught up with the fourth season. It is available on May 17.

Fleabag Season 2

Finally, it’s all about the Prime Original, Fleabag. The second season drops this week and you’ll definitely not want to miss out. Fleabag still has a problem with the Big Guy upstairs but what happens when she meets a priest?

This is the confirmed final season of the series. You’ll be able to watch it all on May 17.
