The Top 30 Highest Rated Prime Video TV Shows of All Time

30. The Wheel of Time (2021)

In the 1980s, millions of Romanians tuned in to Comrade Detective, a gritty, sexy, communist buddy cop show that has now been digitally remastered and dubbed into English for the first time by a cast featuring Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Jenny Slate, Nick Offerman and many more.”

28. Betas (2013)

Erik Adams of the AV Club says, With its Amazon Studios wing, the online retailer is attempting the very same feat as the protagonists of Betas: To bootstrap its way to success in a nascent field.” 

27. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power (2022)

When Jeff Bezos wants something, you either deliver or start working for Crackle. Here, the creator of Prime Video reportedly spent over one billion dollars producing J.R.R. Tolkien’s money-making fantasy machine. It was always going to be challenging. Bezos and the company will have episodes and spin-offs for years.

Official Premise: 

Cast: Robert Aramayo, Markella Kavenagh, Joseph Mawle, Ema Horvath, Maxim Baldry

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 85%

IMDB Rating: 6.9/10

At Ready Steady Cut, we reviewed the series: “Tolkien fans can breathe a sigh of relief. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is a remarkable achievement. It pays homage to and builds on the source material while creating its own distinctive identity. Brilliant television.” 

26. Goliath (2016)

David E. Kelley is one of the few television producers who can proudly say that they led their streaming series past a third season. The Billy Bob Thornton vehicle stayed on the Prime Video streaming waves for four seasons and left its mark as one of Amazon’s landmark series.

Official Premise: 

“Once a powerful lawyer, Billy McBride is now a washed-up ambulance chaser who spends more time in bars than the courtroom. When Billy reluctantly agrees to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the massive law firm he helped create, a vast and deadly conspiracy comes to light. Billy and his team end up in a life-or-death trial against the ultimate foe, which could end up helping Billy find redemption and exact revenge on the firm.”

25. Tales from the Loop (2020)

The Rebecca Hall vehicle had the Rotten Tomatoes critics saying, “Though the show around them burns a bit too slowly, Tales from the Loop beautifully transposes Simon Stålenhag’s paintings into moving art and provides a welcome dose of warmth and humanity with its sci-fi.”

Official Premise: 

“The townspeople who live above “The Loop,” a machine built to unlock and explore the mysteries of the universe, experience things previously consigned to the realm of science fiction.”

Cast: Rebecca Hall, Paul Schneider, Daniel Zolghadri, Duncan Joiner, Jonathan Pryce

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 86%

IMDB Rating: 7.4/10

At Ready Steady Cut, we reviewed the series:Tales from the Loop is a few good episodes away from being a fantastic Amazon series, suffering from a heavily weighted vision.

24. I Love Dick (2016)

Based on the best-selling novel by author Chris Kraus, Kevin Bacon was nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy for his role as the titular character. Kathryn Hahn also was given some of the best reviews of her career in the hypersexualized dramedy that was unceremoniously canceled after one season. 

Official Premise: 

“Set in a colorful academic community in Texas, this series follows a frustrated filmmaker named Chris and a writer, Sylvere, who are in a troubled marriage, and their fascination with a charismatic professor named Dick. The story is adapted from Chris Kraus’ novel of the same name and is told Rashomon-style, where shifting points of view reveal contradictory interpretations of the same events. Kevin Bacon plays the titular role, a renowned, macho scholar who infuriates Chris but also unleashes her artistic awakening.”

Cast: Kevin Bacon, Kathryn Hahn, Griffin Dunne, Roberta Colindrez, Lily Mojekwu

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 87%

IMDB Rating: 6,3/10

The Guardian’s Lauren Carroll Harris proclaims, “I Love Dick carries on Transparent’s search for new forms of queer, feminist, long-form storytelling.”

23. The Wilds (2020)

The Lost-like series ran on Prime Video for two seasons, premiering in 2020 and ending its run last year with the main complaint that the sophomore season had a steep drop in storytelling quality when the creators tried to expand on the original premise.

Official Premise: 

“Teenage girls from radically different backgrounds find themselves stranded on a remote island, unaware they’ve just become the subjects of an elaborate social experiment.”

Cast: Rachel Griffiths, Sophia Ali, Shannon Berry, Jenna Clause, Reign Edwards

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 88%

IMDB Rating: 7.3/10

At Ready Steady Cut, we reviewed the series: “The introduction of the boys is a failed experiment, and unfortunately, apart from a few good moments and an interesting finale, season 2 is a wasted continuation that offers very little.”

22. As We See It (2022)

As We See It is based on the Israeli dramedy series titled On the Spectrum and won Best Drama Series at the 2018 Israeli Ophir Awards. A groundbreaking idea for streaming, with the series being the first of its kind to cast three lead actors who identify as autistic. Prime Video adapted the series but canceled it after one season.

Official Premise: 

“Jack, Harrison, and Violet, three roommates on the autism spectrum, strive to get and keep jobs, make friends, fall in love, and navigate a world that eludes them.”

Cast: Rick Glassman, Albert Rutecki, Sue Ann Pien, Sosie Bacon, Chris Pang

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 90%

IMDB Rating:  8.1/10

Eric Deggans of NPR writes, “Katims has created an emotional, touching series that gives each character a compelling, empathetic storyline. Along the way, he’s provided an important example of how TV can improve its depiction of characters on the spectrum.”

21. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (2017)

Created by Amy Sherman-Palladino (“Gilmore Girls“), the acclaimed Prime Video streaming series has run for four seasons and received a final fifth season renewal this past year. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is Amazon’s most acclaimed series, winning seven primetime Emmy awards and three Golden Globes. The show is also responsible for the breakout role for Rachel Brosnahan, who plays the titular character and has gone in to star in films such as The Courier, Dead for a Dollar, and the acclaimed film, I’m Your Woman.

Official Premise: 

“It’s the late 1950s and Miriam “Midge” Maisel has everything she has ever wanted — the perfect husband, two kids and an elegant apartment on New York’s Upper West Side. Her seemingly idyllic life takes a surprising turn when she discovers a hidden talent she didn’t previously know she had — stand-up comedy. This revelation changes her life forever as she begins a journey that takes her from her comfortable life on the Upper West Side through the cafes and nightclubs of Greenwich Village as she makes her way through the city’s comedy industry on a path that could ultimately lead her to a spot on the “Tonight Show” couch.”

Cast: Rachel Brosnahan, Michael Zegen, Alex Borstein, Tony Shalhoub, Marin Hinkle

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 90%

IMDB Rating: 8.7/10

At Ready Steady Cut, we reviewed the series: “Very aptly described, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel manages to have an entire host of delightful surprises.”

20. Red Oaks (2014)

Ben Travers of Indiewire proclaims Red Oaks to be “…delightful and whip-smart comedy, there’s a case to be made for “Red Oaks” as the most significant nostalgia-infused TV series currently streaming.”

Official Premise: 

“It’s the summer of 1985, and NYU student David lands a summer job at the Red Oaks Country Club in New Jersey. As the assistant tennis pro, he rubs elbows with the clientele, as well as his fellow employees. And they all have advice to offer him on how he should be planning for the rest of his life. His father urges him to buckle down and improve his grades (“a C is a Jewish F!” he tells his son, just before collapsing on the tennis court) so he can get into the college’s CPA program. Trouble is, David isn’t sure he wants to be a CPA. His boss recommends ditching college to go into the stock market.”

Cast: Craig Roberts, Ennis Esmer, Oliver Cooper, Paul Reiser, Alexandra Socha

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 91%

IMDB Rating: 7.9/10

19. The Tick (2016)

Ben Edlund’s 33-year odyssey of developing his comic book The Tick (1986) ended in 2019. This updated version of his cult-classic 2001 series (in which director Barry Sonnenfeld called the pilot his best directorial effort) of the same name starring Seinfeld legend Patrick Warburton streamed on Prime Video for two seasons before finally coming to an end in 2019 when Amazon announced the cancelation.

Official Premise: 

“In a world where superheroes and villains have been real for decades, Arthur, an unassuming accountant with no superpowers, becomes embroiled in the middle of the battle between good and evil. When he realizes that his city is owned by a global supervillain who was long thought to be dead, he struggles to uncover the conspiracy. As he becomes obsessed with the conspiracy, most people think he’s crazy. One person who believes Arthur is a mysterious new ally, The Tick, who is a bizarre blue superhero who may just be a figment of Arthur’s imagination.”

Cast: Peter Serafinowicz, Griffin Newman, Valorie Curry, Yara Martinez, Brendan Hines

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 91%

IMDB Rating: 7.4/10

Matthew Aguilar of ComicBook.com says, “The Tick continues to ooze charm and personality, but also manages to push its cast in new and often hilarious directions. The Tick wears its heart on its sleeve, and we can’t help but love him for it.”

18. Paper Girls (2022)

The critic’s consensus on Rotten Tomatoes says, “Folding together time-traveling wonder with a strong ensemble of youngsters who are as dimensional as origami, Paper Girls is an absolute blast to the future.”

Official Premise: 

“In the early morning hours after Halloween 1988, four paper girls are out on their delivery route when they become caught in the crossfire between warring time-travelers, changing the course of their lives forever.”

Cast: Camryn Jones, Riley Lai Nelet, Sofia Rosinsky, Fina Strazza, Ali Wong

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 91%

IMDB Rating: 7.310

At Ready Steady Cut, we reviewed the series: “Not overly exciting and too tame in many episodes. However, Paper Girls may satisfy a younger audience who are more willing to overlook some of the show’s silly moments.”

17. The Summer I Turned Pretty (2022)

Based on the smash hit young-adult novel of the same name by author Jenny Han, The Summer I Turned Pretty was a viral social media sensation when it premiered last year. However, this amount to the same type of word of mouth of a CW show, with more word of mouth than actual viewers. The series was canceled after just one season.

Official Premise: 

“A girl is caught in a love triangle between two brothers as she deals with her first love and first heartbreak during the perfect summer.”

Cast: Lola Tung, Jackie Chung, Rachel Blanchard, Christopher Briney, Gavin Casalegno

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 91%

IMDB Rating: 7.4/10

At Ready Steady Cut, we reviewed the series: “A mediocre teen romance with memorable moments, but overall doesn’t quite sit right, with its toxic obsession over image and the upper-class elite.”

16. Patriot (2015)

Patriot Prime Video black comedy stars Michael Dorman, who plays the role of an intelligence officer named John Tavner. The series was a solid performer for the steaming giant, lasting two seasons and spanning 18 episodes, and was created by Steve Conrad (Wrestling Earnest Hemingway, The Pursuit of Happyness).

Official Premise: 

“To stop Iran from going nuclear, John Tavner must forgo safety nets and assume a dangerous non-official cover as a mid-level employee at a Midwestern industrial piping firm. Tavner is faced with the intricacies of his new day job and a stickler of a boss at the piping company, while navigating PTSD, failures by the federal government and escalating fiascos that continue to complicate his mission.”

Cast: Michael Dorman, Terry O’Quinn, Michael Chernus, Kathleen Munroe, Aliette Opheim

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 91%

IMDB Rating: 8.2/10

15. Reacher (2022)

Many of us have been waiting for the worthy production of Lee Child’s modernized Dirty Harry that fits the man he brought to life. He was a former military policeman with his brand of justice, with the type of reasoning that the target of his ire brought upon themselves. Oh, and that problem goes by the name of Jack Reacher. At 77 inches tall, 250lbs, barrel chest, and tree trunks for arms and legs, the former Military Policeman has begun his Jack Kerouac across our great states. Look for the second season to air in the spring of 2023.

Official Premise: 

“Jack Reacher, a veteran military police investigator, has recently entered civilian life when he is falsely accused of murder.”

Cast: Alan Ritchson, Willa Fitzgerald, Malcolm Goodwin, Marc Bendavid, Willie C. Carpenter

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 92%

IMDB Rating: 8.1/10

At Ready Steady Cut, we reviewed the series: “Amazon’s Reacher adaptation is the one we’ve been waiting for and deserve. Lee Child’s hands-on involvement allows the series never to forget the book’s deadpan wit and killer twists that made Child’s novel famous.”

14. The Boys (2019)

The worldwide smash hit sensation, The Boys, has been Prime Video’s most buzz-worthy series. The series has been nominated for six Emmy awards and was renewed for a fourth season in 2022. We cannot wait for this bloody disgusting and visceral good time to hop back on the streaming waves soon.

Official Premise: 

“Superheroes are often as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and sometimes even as revered as gods. But that’s when they’re using their powers for good. What happens when the heroes go rogue and start abusing their powers? When it’s the powerless against the super powerful, the Boys head out on a heroic quest to expose the truth about the Seven and Vought, the multibillion-dollar conglomerate that manages the superheroes and covers up their dirty secrets. Based on the comic book series of the same name.”

Cast: Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 93%

IMDB Rating: 8.7/10

At Ready Steady Cut, we reviewed the series: “A darkly comic, lightning fast, and bloodstained ride.”

13. Mozart in the Jungle (2014)

Starring Gael García Bernal as Rodrigo, the series is based on conductor Gustavo Dudamel. The Prime Video series was inspired by oboist Blair Tindall’s 2005 memoir Mozart in the Jungle: Sex, Drugs, and Classical Music, about her career in New York. The show lasted four seasons, an accomplishment in the streaming wars, and won a Golden Globe for Best Television Series – Comedy and Best Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy for Bernal.

Official Premise: 

“Love, money, ambition, and music intertwine in Mozart in the Jungle, a half hour comedic drama that looks at finding yourself and finding love while conquering New York City. A brash new maestro Rodrigo stirs up the New York Symphony as young oboist Hailey hopes for her big chance.”

Cast: Gael García Bernal, Lola Kirke, Malcolm McDowell, Saffron Burrows, Bernadette Peters

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 94%

IMDB Rating: 8.1/10

Slate’s J. Bryan Lowder calls Mozart in the Jungle “One of the funniest, most charming comedies going. You could do far worse than spend a portion of a winter weekend submitting to its serenade.”

12. A League of Their Own (2022)

When Amazon Studios first announced the A League of Their Own remake, I immediately worried the updated series would aim for that feel-good show that fails to take oppression seriously. To my relief, while sacrificing much of the fun from the 1992 original, creators Abbi Jacobsen (Broad City) and Will Graham’s (Movie 43) show are layered and flawlessly produced. The final product is a streaming series that offers insightful themes on how these women operate in the shadows.

Official Premise: 

“The series, set in 1943, is about the formation of the Rockford Peaches, a women’s team in the nascent All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. While her husband is away at war, Carson Shaw leaves her small town life to pursue her dream of playing professional baseball.”

Cast: Abbi Jacobson, Will Graham, Hailey Wierengo, Desta Tedros Reff, Jamie Babbit

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 94%%

IMDB Rating: 7.5/10

At Ready Steady Cut, we reviewed the series: “A League of Their Own is sharp, nuanced, and multilayered with constant surprises. Round the bases for this modern update of a comedy classic.”

11. Upload (2020)

Upload is a better series when it’s about the dilemma of living in an afterlife under the control of big tech rather than the mystery of why Nathan is there in the first place. Greg Daniel’s series is ambitious storytelling that you rarely see in mainstream comedies that reward its audience.

Official Premise: 

“A man is able to choose his own afterlife after his untimely death.”

Cast: Robbie Amell, Andy Allo, Allegra Edwards, Zainab Johnson, Kevin Bigley

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 94%

IMDB Rating: 7.9/10

At Ready Steady Cut, we reviewed the series: “Upload remains the most ambitious comedy on television.” – M.N. Miller

10. The Underground Railroad (2021)

We praised The Underground Railroad, saying, “…adapted from Colson Whitehead’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Oscar-winning Moonlight director Barry Jenkins, is the kind of searing storytelling that reminds you how badly written and generally thoughtless most television is.” The miniseries won a Golden Globe for Best Miniseries or Television Film and Jenkins for directing.

Official Premise: 

“After escaping a Georgia plantation, Cora boards a train embarking on a harrowing trip as she seeks true freedom while being hunted by a notorious slave catcher.”

Cast: Thuso Mbedu, Chase W. Dillon, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Pierre, Amber Gray

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 94%

IMDB Rating: 7.4/10

At Ready Steady Cut, we reviewed the series:  “A towering achievement, The Underground Railroad is exquisite, masterful television, and a must-see for everyone.”

9. Forever (2018)

You wouldn’t think a show from Master of None, Parks & Recreation writer Alan Yang, and 30 Rock producer Matt Hubbard would have trouble finding an audience. However, their brainchild Forever was canceled, starring SNL funny people Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen. 

Official Premise: 

“June and Oscar are a married couple who live a comfortable-but-predictable life in suburban California. For years, they’ve had the same conversations, eaten the same meals, and taken vacations at the same rented lakehouse. But when June talks Oscar into shaking things up by taking a ski trip, the couple suddenly find themselves in completely unfamiliar territory — raising questions about love, commitment and their marriage.”

Cast: Maya Rudolph, Fred Armisen

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 95%

IMDB Rating: 7.1/10

Ian Crouch from the New Yorker called Forever “A profound exploration of the wondrous perils of falling in love.”

8. Transparent (2014)

One of the most acclaimed and progressive comedies in television history – until star Jeffrey Tambor’s history of toxic workplace behavior was exposed, and the series was canceled. Transparent took home 42 awards, including eight Prime Time Emmy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, and an AFI Television award before bowing out with its series film finale.

Official Premise: 

“Mort has a secret that he really wants to tell his three adult children, who are so self-absorbed they don’t see that something has changed for divorced, girlfriendless dad. Even when he invites them to dinner en masse to share his news, somehow, the conversation becomes about them. The secret unfolds, though, when he comes home and sees his married daughter getting intimate with her ex. Now, he knows her secret; she learns his; and the dysfunctional family finds one secret after another being exposed.”

Cast: Jeffrey Tambor, Gaby Hoffmann, Amy Landecker, Jay Duplass, Judith Light

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 95%

IMDB Rating: 7.810

The New Statesman’s Mark Lawson said, “Transparent is the most original, daring, and confident piece of American TV since Breaking Bad.”

7. One Mississippi (2015)

This Prime Video original series is a dark comedy inspired by events in comic Tig Notaro’s life. The “tragicomedy” ran for two seasons and produced 12 episodes before being canceled in 2018.

Official Premise: 

“Starring as a Los Angeles-based radio host of the same name, Tig is still dealing with serious health issues, including recovering from a double mastectomy. When her mother becomes gravely ill, Tig returns to her hometown in Mississippi, where she is forced on a painful (and at times, hilarious) journey that unearths uncomfortable truths about herself and her family. In order to heal, both physically and emotionally, Tig must reconnect with her roots before moving forward.”

Cast: Tig Notaro, Noah Harpster, John Rothman, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Stephanie Allynne

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 96%

IMDB Rating: 7.5/10

Katherine Singh of Refinery 29 calls One Mississippi “Another semi-autobiographical gem.”

6. Sneaky Pete (2015)

Executive produced by Bryan Cranston, Giovanni Ribisi plays the role of Marius, a con man who tries to leave his old life behind by assuming the identity of his cellmate, Pete. The show ran for three seasons and offered the type of binge-worthy crime drama the streaming network is known for.

Official Premise: 

“A con man who tries to leave his old life behind by assuming the identity of his cell mate, Pete. While Pete’s family doesn’t have reason to suspect that he is not their long-lost loved one, they are a colorful group with their own secrets and lies that could make life as dangerous as the world Marius was hoping to escape. Marius must find a way to keep his lies from backfiring as he deals with unexpected situations”

Cast: 

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 96%%

IMDB Rating: 8.1/10

Collider’s Allison Keene said, “That’s the thing – Sneaky Pete isn’t reinventing the wheel here. But it is providing a fun, easily binge-able caper.”

5. Bosch (2014)

Perhaps Prime Video’s greatest achievement is the critically acclaimed procedural based on Michael Connelly’s series of best-selling novels. Bosch was the streaming giant’s longest-running series lasting for seven seasons, evening spawning a spinoff on Freeform, which is quite an accomplishment in streaming longevity. The show will indeed have a fanbase for years to come.

Official Premise: 

“Harry Bosch has murder on his mind. A former Special Forces officer who has done tours in the Middle East, Bosch is now a tenacious, jazz-loving homicide detective in the Hollywood Division of the LAPD. Bosch is faced with myriad challenges as he investigates suspicious deaths and follows trails of corruption — including the dark side of the police department — in his relentless pursuit of the truth.”

Cast: Titus Welliver, Jamie Hector, Amy Aquino, Lance Reddick, Madison Lintz

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 97%

IMDB Rating: 8.5/10

At Ready Steady Cut, we reviewed the final season: “Bosch was a show fueled by patience, sun-soaked streets, a righteous mindset, and the stoic Titus Welliver. The final season is by far the most suspenseful. It’s that rare show that knew it was time to go but never overstayed its welcome.”

4. Harlem (2021)

The Rotten Tomatoes critic consensus says, “Harlem is a delight that is often wise about friendly foibles, aided by a terrific cast whose snappy repartee immediately shines.”

Official Premise: 

“Four ambitious best friends, Camille, Tye, Quinn, and Angie, navigate relationships and careers.”

Cast: Grace Byers, Meagan Good, Jerrie Johnson, Shoniqua Shandai, Tyler Lepley

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 98%

IMDB Rating: 8.1/10

At Ready Steady Cut, we reviewed season 1: “Harlem is a modern and stylish comedy that follows the lives of four ambitious (and brilliantly written) women who live in Harlem, New York.”

3. Undone (2019)

Undone is like no other show on television; broadcast, cable, or streaming. It’s funny, touching, and brimming with vitality. For all of the series’ intrigue and charming comic relief, Kate Purdy and Raphael Bob-Waksberg’s series leads to a compelling conclusion that is just so beautiful—a fantastical allegory of mental health that moves you in unexpected ways.

Official Premise:

Undone explores the elastic nature of reality through its central character, Alma. After getting into a nearly fatal car crash, Alma discovers she has a new relationship with time and uses this ability to find out the truth about her father’s death.”

Cast: Rosa Salazar, Angelique Cabral, Bob Odenkirk, Constance Marie, Siddharth Dhananjay

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 98%%

IMDB Rating: 8.2/10

At Ready Steady Cut, we reviewed season 2: “Undone remains ambitious, touching, and beautifully told. A mental health allegory that will move you in unexpected ways and bring a few tears to your eyes. At least, it did to mine.”

2. The Devil’s Hour (2022)

This British thriller debuted on Prime Video last fall with plenty of buzz and captured the approval of thriller fans across the globe. The Devil’s Hour was created by Tom Moran (The Feed) and executive produced by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who). Prime Video has so much faith in the series it was renewed for a second and third season shortly after its release.

Official Premise: 

“A woman wakes up every night at exactly 3:33am, in the middle of the so-called devil’s hour between 3am and 4am.”

Cast: Jessica Raine, Peter Capaldi, Nikesh Patel, Alex Ferns, Barbara Marten

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 100%

IMDB Rating: 7.7/10

At Ready Steady Cut, we reviewed season 1: “The Devil’s Hour is a skilfully crafted series that slowly builds suspense over its first two installments. There’s some great acting on display here, especially from lead Jessica Raine, and enough intrigue to keep viewers watching until the end. A surprisingly creepy offering that has the potential to be a much-talked-about, addictive series.”

1. With Love (2021)

The acclaimed romantic comedy streaming series With Love was created by Gloria Calderón Kellett (One Day at a Time), whose history of working on soapy, serialized rom-coms served the show well in its first season. IndieWire called the series “a vibrant and engaging original on par with some of the best network content out there — deliciously captivating and hard to stop watching.”

Official Premise: 

Siblings Lily and Jorge Diaz are each on a mission to find love and purpose during the holidays.”

Cast: Emeraude Toubia, Mark Indelicato, Rome Flynn, Desmond Chiam, Vincent Rodriguez III

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 100%

IMDB Rating: 7.2/10

At Ready Steady Cut, we reviewed season 1: “Without even counting its unique concept, its relatability, or its beautifully flawed characters, With Love is simply a love letter to life that any modern family will enjoy.”
