What’s New on Amazon Prime: May 2019.

A clutch of original series hit Amazon Prime in May, including a high profile adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens.

Neil Gaiman’s fiction is hot property lately for big budget TV adaptations.  American Gods is currently wrapping up its second season over on STARZ, but fans looking for more of his weird worlds, Good Omens hits Amazon Prime in May 2019.  It’s one of four original series making its way to Prime this month.

Inverting Netflix’ formula, Amazon is mostly front loading its originals and saving its new classics for the end of the month.  Those willing to wait will get treated to all of the Friday the 13th franchise, as well as one of our favorite cult classics – I’m Gonna Git You Sucka.  In a new twist, Amazon is also loading up on a ton of B-movies from China this month.  I know Chinese Hercules and Shoalin Vs. Lama has got me intrigued for all of the wrong reasons.

New and Notable.

    • SuspiriaAmazon’s remake of the Dario Argento classic is every bit as terrifying as the original.

    • YardieIt’s surprising to see Idris Elba‘s first turn at directing hit VOD so fast.  Niche, but intriguing.

    • Good Omens.  A bookish angel (Michael Sheen) and a classy demon (David Tennant) try to stop the apocalypse…in order to spend more time loafing about on Earth.
