Are you stuck indoors due to Hurricane Dorian or enjoying the weekend after the first week of classes? Here are some great things to watch on Amazon!

Another weekend stretches out before you. But with so many film and television choices available to you with your Amazon Prime subscription, it’s impossible to figure out what to watch! Don’t worry. We’ve got a few suggestions to keep your weekend busy.

That being said, if you haven’t watched the latest comedy stand-up specials (#IMomSoHardLive, Alice Wetturland: My Mama is a Human and So Am I, etc.) or their newest original series, Carnival Row, now is the perfect time to indulge.

Having seen both, I recommend watching the dark fantasy series Carnival Row first. You’ll get sucked in and want to make sure you have enough time to finish it! The comedy specials will be an excellent way to lighten the mood once you’ve wrapped the finale.

Niko and the Sword of Light (2017-2019)

  • Starring: Andre Robinson, Kari Wahlgren, Tom Kenny, Steven Blum, Dee Bradley Baker, Jim Cummings, and Kevin Michael Richardson

Niko and the Sword of Light wraps up its two-season run with its final batch of episodes. If you haven’t watched the show before, now is a perfect time, either for you or your kids!

The series follows Niko, who is the last of his kind, into a strange new world. He embarks on an epic journey to deliver light back to his homeland and making plenty of new friends, and several enemies, along the way.

Late Night (2019)

  • Starring: Emma Thompson, Mindy Kaling, Max Casella, Hugh Dancy, John Lithgow, Denis O’Hare, Reid Scott, and Amy Ryan

In the world of late-night television, a talk show host’s world changes when she hires her first female staff writer. The two women share a surprising bond over their love for punchy jokes and crafting the perfect punchline. Despite coming from two different generations, they find a way to bridge the gap and elevate the show to new levels.
