Get your queue in order.
For Amazon Prime subscribers, October is an opportunity to finally binge The Americans. You know, that show that your obnoxious friend won’t stop telling you is the best on TV. Across five seasons and since 2013, the Cold War drama brings you brisk action and delectable depth. Amazon will also debut four original series and two original films. And in addition to seasonal horror, pensive and moving alien films like Amy Adams’ Arrival.
New on Amazon Prime in October 2017: Editor’s pick
In the long list TV shows based on the lives of comedians, there’s none quite like One Mississippi. Co-creator Tig Notaro’s Amazon series isn’t necessarily a comedy. Sure, the show from Notaro and Oscar-winner Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult) is 30 minutes in length, so it qualifies as a comedy in traditional TV definitions. But in terms of tone, One Mississippi errs closer to the likes of Transparent, another Amazon “comedy” which regularly doles out heartbreak, despite coming in a neat half-hour package. Like her standup, One Mississippi is hilarious, bittersweet, and aloof, often all at once. —Chris Osterndorf
