Get your queue in order.

Sneaky Pete showed enough season 1 potential that it survived the great Jeff Bezos culling. In January Amazon closed shop on many of its original, auteur-driven series including One MississippiJean Claude Van Johnson, and I Love Dick. In March, three other original series hit the streaming service. Let’s hope they fare better.

Check out the listings below.

New on Amazon Prime: Editor’s picks

Sneaky Pete

Giovanni Ribisi stars as a man on the run who stole his cell mate’s identity and shacked up with his family, and now the long con is catching up with him. The Bryan Cranston-produced Amazon original series will return to Amazon Prime for season 2 on March 9—though given how things ended for his character, it’s unlikely we’ll see much of him in the show.

While Britannia is clearly inspired by Game of Thrones, the show still feels very much like its own beast. A beast filled with treachery, terrifying druids, and a whole mess of hallucinogens. Britannia plants its freak flag early on. Within the first few minutes, you’ll see Mackenzie Crook appear as the most unsettling druid you’d ever care to meet, watch a man dive off a cliff and into a nightmare dreamscape fueled psychotropic plants, and then discover that this period drama has chosen as its theme song the trippy 1968 Donovan joint “Hurdy Gurdy Man.” And, for some inexplicable reason, it works. —David Wharton

Philip K. Dick’s ‘Electric Dreams’

Amazon gets its own Black Mirror in this sci-fi anthology. Philip K. Dick was always good at predictive text—not necessarily about tech we would be using in the future, but the ideologies and power structures that might come. Dick’s sci-fi short stories from the ‘50s provide the source material for Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, which pulls from the author’s early works. A collaboration with Amazon Studios and Channel 4, where Electric Dreams partially premiered in 2016, this 10-episode series is a bit uneven, but more than 50 years later some of his worlds still mirror our own. —Audra Schroeder

The Last Post

Set during the mid-1960s, The Last Post follows life in and around a unit of Royal Military Police operating in the port city of Aden—now part of the nation of Yemen. The result is a little bit Mad Men and a little bit Army Wives, and it’s most definitely unique. There’s love, war, and infidelity. It can feel like a soap opera, but both the jaw-dropping setting and the other storylines ensure that it’s not The Bold and the Beautiful: Yemen Edition. It’s also an intriguing exploration of a slice of history many of us don’t know about but that’s instructive for our own modern era. —David Wharton
