Many of us are stuck at home these days. Most of us are completely healthy and well, but we stay inside to slow the virus down and to protect ourselves and those we love. So, what are we to do while inside all day? You should absolutely use the time to do something useful, like learning how to play an instrument, study some art-history, or maybe pick up a hobby you haven’t had time to entertain in years. But, when you are tired and just want to watch something on Amazon Prime, what should you actually watch?

Here I have gathered ten titles on Amazon Prime that I believe will help time fly and give you a great time while streaming. You will for sure not find all the movies and TV shows interesting, but I have tried to include something for those will all sorts of tastes.

Ten movies and TV shows to watch on Amazon Prime during your coronavirus quarantine

The Boys

The Boys is a quite new Amazon TV series that shows us that not all superheroes are nice. It is a very surprising show because of this, and it is entertaining, surprising, and packed with action at the same time. Since it is a TV series, you will have lots of episodes to watch, meaning that you will spend a full day binge-watching if you want to get through it all in one single day.

So, how can normal people stop a bunch of evil superheroes? That is the question, and you will find the answer if you decide to watch The Boys on Amazon Prime during your quarantine.

The Boys

Jack Ryan

This is my favorite Amazon Original action series. John Krasinski plays the role of the analyst Jack Ryan. He gets into trouble all the time, and he is awesome at discovering clues and solving problems that often include high-ranking politicians and leaders. There are currently two seasons of Jack Ryan ready, and both of them are great.

Jack Ryan never reaches the intensity of 24 (with Kiefer Sutherland aka Jack Bauer), but it is as close as you get it on Amazon Prime.

Brittany Runs a Marathon

Brittany is fat and not at all in good health. In the middle of this, she makes the decision to run a marathon. It can almost be compared to suddenly getting a big vision for your life in the middle of your coronavirus isolation. Yes, it is often in such situations that dreams are born, and this movie might encourage you and cheer you up on a tough day. Will Brittany succeed running the marathon? That remains a question that you will find the answer to whenever you decide to watch this movie on Amazon Prime.

Bumblebee

Does it sound cool to watch a movie with a car that can turn into a robot? A little girl stumbles upon this car, and little does she know about it before she starts to polish the car and it suddenly turns into a robot. This is a great action movie for teenagers, and also for adults interested.

This isn’t an Amazon Original movie, meaning that I cannot guarantee that it will be around for a long time. But, at the time writing, you can watch Bumblee on Amazon Prime, included with your Prime subscription.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Would you like to be cheered up? The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is one of the most entertaining comedies of this present day. It isn’t exactly like How I met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, The Young Sheldon, and similar shows. Instead, this is a comedy that is packed with great jokes, but it is delivered in a paper of a serious world in which women aren’t accepted in the same way as their male colleagues.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is available with three seasons on Amazon Prime. In other words, this will give you loads of hours with good jokes and laughter in front of the TV during your coronavirus quarantine.

Wild Kratts

Do you have some kids at home? Would you like them to maybe learn something while they are watching and relaxing in front of the TV? Wild Kratts is the perfect solution. This is almost like a nature show, only that it shows you two animated characters as they solve trouble involving animals. There are, of course, some bad guys involved in the how, but still, this is a perfect action-series for kids who want to have fun and learn at the same time.

You Were Never Really Here

Do you want to watch something even more depressing than the coronavirus? Then you should watch You Were Never Really Here. This movie stars Jaquelin Phoenix, the man who just received an Academy Award for his role as Joker in the movie Joker. He was amazing as the Joker, but in this movie, it is just depressing. But, if you like the guy, and if you like dark movies in which we see Jaquelin Phoenix in one of his classical and depressing roles, then this is perfect for you. In other words, if you like strange movies with Jaquelin Phoenix, this might be it!

Overboard

Would you like to watch a romantic movie on Amazon Prime during the COVID-19 isolation? Overboard is a romantic comedy, telling the story about a woman who works as a cleaning lady. She hasn’t had much luck so far in life, and it gets even worse as she meets a spoiled guy on his yacht. It is everything, just not love at first sight. It couldn’t be further from the truth.

However, things will change throughout the movie, and this will give you a chance to watch a romantic comedy that will cheer up your heart and your soul!

Mission Impossible: Fallout

The most recent movie in the Mission Impossible series with Tom Cruise can be streamed on Amazon Prime. The awesome thing is that you can watch this movie without watching the earlier Mission Impossible movies, and still have a great time and enjoy the full story of the movie.

Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is the crazy secret agent who is capable of doing the most incredible tasks, all with the help of his friends. The stunts are wild, and the scenery of the movie is stunning. In other words, this is a two-hour-long adrenaline kick with lots of action, and beautiful scenery from Paris, and also from the Preacher’s Pulpit in Norway (the end of the movie).

Mission Impossible Fallout

A Simple Favor

Are you a fan of Anna Kendrick? In this movie, she plays the role of an innocent mother who meets a very special lady as she takes her girl to school. Her friend is mysterious, she is wealthy, and she has a special effect on her. But, then one day, she is gone! What happened to her? Anna Kendrick is in the middle of the entire story as she digs for the truth.

This is a typical thriller that comes down without being too scary, but at the same time, it has some interesting twists and it should be able to entertain you for a couple of hours.


Those were some suggestions for movies to watch on Amazon Prime during your Coronavirus isolation/quarantine. Do you have other suggestions or maybe ideas for what people should watch on Amazon Prime in these days?

I would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions!

Those bad superheroes surprised me (The Boys on Amazon)

I have just watched the first episode of The Boys on Amazon. I didn’t know what to expect before the first episode, only that it was supposed to be about superheroes not only fighting on the good side. I watched the trailer as well, but I had a hard time really understanding what to expect based on the trailer. But, after watching one single episode, I know have a better grip on the story!

I thought The Boys would be about a group of superheroes doing good, but also having trouble with their own personalities. After watching the first episode on Amazon, I got to say that I was kind of correct. But, not entirely.

Who are The Boys?

To my surprise, The Boys isn’t the title of those superheroes, but about a small group of some people actually going against the superheroes. But, why would they need to fight against them or go against the superheroes? Well, it seems as if they aren’t really as good as one would expect.

Hughie Campbell is one of the boys. We meet him at the start of the first episode as he stands with his girlfriend chatting on the street. Suddenly, A-Train (a superhero moving with superspeeds) runs by them and the girlfriend ends up dead after being “torn to pieces” by the superhero moving with superspeed. Hughie isn’t able to be at peace with this, and as he meets Billy Butcher, they decide to go for “The Seven” to get them down. But, it isn’t gonna be that easy.

At the same time, we also meet the brand new member of The Seven, Erin Moriarty, better known as Starlight. She comes with entirely pure intentions to the superhero-assembly, and she is greatly surprised to discover the corrupted morale among the people she had adored until she became one of them. Where will this take her in the coming episode? I don’t know yet!

Why The Boys surprised me (in a positive way)?

After watching the trailer, I didn’t feel like watching The Boys at all. It looked like a mess to me, but I took the time to watch the first episode. And to be honest, it threw me so many curveballs that it caught my attention, and actually made me curious about how this will continue from here.

Yes, the fact that it is so different makes it good. I still have seven more episodes to watch before I get to the end of season 1, and we already know that The Boys has been renewed for a second season. But, based on the pilot episode, this for sure looks good!

Where can you watch The Boys online?

If you have an Amazon Prime subscription, then stream it on Amazon Prime. If you have a Prime Video subscription, stream it on Prime Video. If you do not have either, you better get one of them. You can find out more on how to stream Amazon Prime videos abroad, and those instructions will also help you actually buy an Amazon Prime subscription in the United States.

I do not know of any other TV channels showing this Amazon show currently, so this is the way to watch it. There are some Amazon shows that you can stream on other platforms, but this is not one of them!

How did you like The Boys?

Have you seen the first episode? Have you seen several episodes? How did you like The Boys? I would love to hear your thoughts!

The Boys coming to Amazon Prime

One of the most anticipated shows on Amazon.com currently will get to the platform late in July 2019. The Boys is the name of the show, and here we will meet super-heroes not exactly like the ones we are used to meet.

There will be many highlights on Amazon Prime in July and you can see a video presenting many of them right here.

But, the biggest highlight for many is the new Amazon Original series named The Boys. This isn’t a story about the typical boy in the street. Instead, this is a TV series from Amazon in which we meet people with super-skills, but they lack the super-morale that we have seen in similar heroes before. Can you imagine what it would be like if Thor was only interested in his own selfish interests? Or what if Iron Man only used his mind and brilliancy to grow his own empire instead of saving the earth? Well, in The Boys, we meet similar heroes, but without the morale compass known from the super-heroes from Marvel and DC Comics we have learned to love so far.

Above you can see the second trailer of The Boys from YouTube. As you can see, here we have a mixture of action and drama, and some super-heroes I have a very hard time understanding currently. I guess it will all become clearer after watching a couple of episodes, but right now, I simply feel disorientated watching the trailer.

Would you like to know more about what’s coming to Amazon Prime in July? You can find a full list of Prime July arrivals here.

My thoughts about The Boys

I have a feeling that the super-heroes have got to be good in some kind of way. They are uniting forces (as we understand from the trailer), and the only way this show will be watchable is if they are following certain good principles and having good intentions. Who would ever want to watch a series in which the main characters use their skills only for evil? It would be devastating and ugly, so I guess they will have to make their heroes work together for good, no matter how rotten morale they have and how selfish they might be.

I don’t look especially much forward to this series, but I am still curious to find out what people think about it, and whether or not it will become a success or not.

Are you looking forward to The Boys? What do you think about the series based on the trailers? Are you satisfied or do you feel like someone is messing up with you? I find the trailers hard to grasp and understand, but I will still give the series a chance after its release on Amazon Prime in July!
