The best Amazon Prime original series right now
Ghoul appears in a scene from Fallout.

Despite the platform's very high subscriber counts, the best Amazon Prime Video original series are not held in the same regard as those from some other platforms. That's not to say that there aren't any good Amazon Originals, however. In fact, Amazon was the first streaming service to win an Emmy with Transparent.

Since then, however, Prime Video hasn't quite captured the zeitgeist with any of its offerings. That said, there are many quality series on Amazon. Although new ones don't hit the streamer with the same frequency as Netflix or Hulu, this list will help you get caught up on the considerable options available on the platform. Read on for the best Amazon Prime Video original series, including one new one.
We’ve also rounded up the best Netflix original series and the best Hulu original series if Prime Video doesn’t have the originals you’re looking for.

Amazon Prime Video free trial: Stream for a month for free
The Amazon Prime Video app icon on Roku.

If you've ever shopped on Amazon -- and these days, who hasn't? -- then you've likely heard about the option for an Amazon Prime membership. This subscription is mostly touted as a way to save on shipping costs when purchasing from Amazon, but it also comes bundled with some other handy features including access to Amazon's streaming service, Amazon Prime Video. You'll find a range of movies and shows to watch, but if you're not sure whether you need yet another streaming service, there is an option for a free trial to see if you like the service before paying for it.
Is there an Amazon Prime Video free trial?
There is indeed an Amazon Prime Video free trial, but it's tied into the Prime free trial, which lasts for a month and may or may not be available to you. To see if you're eligible, you'll need to and check. The general rule is that the Prime free trial (and by extension, an Amazon Prime Video free trial) is available to Amazon accounts that have either never signed up for a Prime trial or have not had Prime -- either a trial or paid membership -- any time in the last 12 months.

The Prime free trial is usually for 30 days, similar to the Hulu free trial. If you're not eligible for the Amazon Prime Video free trial, though, then be patient: Sometimes, Amazon will sometimes offer free trials to its loyal customers, so if you have an Amazon account (but not a Prime membership) and shop on the site regularly, you might find a Prime trial offer sitting in your inbox one day. Often, though, these are shorter seven- or 14-day trials rather than the 30-day trial. Nonetheless, it's obvious that Amazon is a bit more generous with these trial periods than other services -- there's no Disney+ free trial or Netflix free trial, for example, but it's thankfully much easier to get an Amazon Prime Video free trial.

Amazon wants everyone to ‘Prepare for Fallout’ on Prime Video in April
A man leans on a wooden beam in Fallout.

Getting the tone of Fallout right is the biggest challenge facing the upcoming live-action adaptation on Prime Video. The games have a very particular sense of humor without becoming a complete farce. However, someone in Amazon's marketing department is clearly familiar with the world of the games because the promo video for Amazon's Prepare for Fallout on Prime Video is hilarious, and it captures the essence of the franchise in ways that the previous trailers for the series haven't been able to.
