Best and Highest Rated Shows On Amazon Prime Video 2023

12. The Rig (2023)

11. Daisy Jones and the Six (2023)

Critic Adam Lock said, “Daisy Jones and The Six is atmospheric and cinematic, exploring a fictional band in authentic detail, while the show’s stunning original songs feel as real as the setting. The romance angle may feel a little old hat, but this series has enough magical moments to make up for any cliched elements..”

9. The Consultant (2023)

Critic Adam Lock says about The Consultant, “Christoph Waltz is mesmerizing in this mixed-bag mystery series from the creator of Servant. The Consultant is tense and twisted for the most part, but resorts to big, silly plot reveals on the odd occasion, ruining its taut and intriguing premise.”

Official Premise: Follows a relationship between employee and boss, asking how far we will go to get ahead and to survive.

Cast: Christoph Waltz, Nat Wolff, Brittany O’Grady

Rotten Tomatoes: 78%

8. The Horror of Dolores Roach (2023)

Critic Adam Lock says about The Horror of Dolores Roach, “It starts as a likable, light horror comedy series, but it quickly descends into bizarre B-movie territory, cutting corners with its plotting while rushing towards an unsatisfying conclusion..”

Rotten Tomatoes: 81%

6. Dead Ringers (2023)

Critic Adam Lock said, “Dead Ringers is brutal and bold television, featuring two outstanding performances from Rachel Weisz, who is clearly operating on another level here. It may not be perfect overall, with some odd detours and some vague plotting, but this is vital, exciting filmmaking nonetheless.”

Official Premise: A modern take on David Cronenberg’s 1988 thriller starring Jeremy Irons, Dead Ringers will feature Rachel Weisz playing the double-lead roles of Elliot and Beverly Mantle, twins who share everything: drugs, lovers, and an unapologetic desire to do whatever it takes–including pushing the boundaries of medical ethics–in an effort to challenge antiquated practices and bring women’s health care to the forefront.

Cast: Domique Fishback, Chloe Bailey, Billie Eilish

Rotten Tomatoes: 85%

4. Harlan Coben’s Shelter (2023)

Critic Adam Lock said, “Harlan Coben’s Shelter is another teen-centric mystery series that ticks off all of the genre’s most addictive traits. The show is brimming with outlandish storylines, plot twists, and an enticing central investigation. It is also highly cliched and entirely superficial, quickly succumbing to a repetitive formula as the many plot strands entangle and fall apart..”

Official Premise: The story of Mickey Bolitar and his new life with a mom in rehab, a dead father, an annoying aunt, and a new school in New Jersey.

Cast: Jaden Michael, Constance Zimmer, Adrian Greensmith

Rotten Tomatoes: 86%

3. I’m A Virgo (2023)

Official Premise: A coming-of-age joyride about Cootie, a 13-foot-tall man who escapes to experience the beauty and contradictions of the real world; he forms friendships, finds love, navigates awkward situations, and encounters his idol named The Hero.

Cast: Jharrel Jerome, Olivia Washington, Brett Gray

Cast: Emily Browning, Megan Smart, Caitlin Stasey, Claire Lovering, Sarah Krndija

Rotten Tomatoes: 100%
