If this is an example of Amazon's best original programming then they're laughably behind Netflix in that department
I had the same reaction. The show feels like a copy of NCIS or something similar. Not my cup of tea.

I'm not sure why Amazon hasn't promoted one of my favourite shows of the past year but I would highly, highly recommend the show Patriot. Definitely takes a bit of time to get going, but I think at about episode 4, this show just takes off and never really takes its foot off the pedal.

I’m 5 episodes into The Tick. It’s great. They really got the balance right as far as mixing the action with the humour. I’d recommend it if you liked the original series way back when.

Finally. Now just need CraveTV to get their act together and stop making it difficult to watch their service.

Manchester City All or Nothing was great!

I’m looking forward to man in the high castle starting again.

And The Kicks was great for the soccer players in your house.

Lol, no, they'll just keep creating more and more spinoffs, each with new characters and more plot lines, until every show has 18 seconds dedicated to each character.

Anyone else experience extreme lagging/freezing last night? Tried watching for a couple of hours but had to give up it was so bad. Probably our internet connection but I have never experienced anything that bad before - on Netflix, Prime Video, or any other streaming of any type.

About six episodes in and Homecoming is interesting. The episodes are short, but that forces the pace.

The cinematography is excellent and this is a perfect series to use the X-ray feature and find out more about the filming, style. I like how the past is shown in full frame, while the present is shown in the small screen format.

Thanks

Thx KTrain - discovered this one as well - unfortunately doesn't seem always accurate. It states The Expanse available on Crave, but when you go on Crave site, it doesn't seem to be...
