Prime Shows to Watch Ahead of ‘Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’

We're finally just days – days! – away from the debut of the highly anticipated Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power on Amazon Prime Video.

Still, if you're committed and ready to go, there are several shows we'd recommend you binge before “Shadow of the Past” and the Second Age of Middle Earth begins. The best part is, you never have to leave Prime Video…

Packed with exciting new characters, Wheel of Time is easily one of the best fantasy series to hit the air in recent years, and the unreal world it takes place in is a treat for the eyes.

Intended to cater both to longtime fans of the storyline and new viewers with no D&D history whatsoever, The Legend of Vox Machina will be a delight for Lord of the Rings enthusiasts.

Based on the film of the same name, the first episodes set much the same status quo that the movie followed. The assassin Erik raises Hanna from infancy, training her to be a deadly killer in anticipation of the CIA Marissa Wiegler hunting them down.

The Tick

With an incredibly solid list of voice actors including Steven Yeung, J.K. Simmons, and Sandra Oh, Invincible was destined to stand out among the crowd.


Based on the 1990 novel written by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, Good Omens follows the demon Crowley and a dear frenemy, the angel Aziraphale as they are forced to team up to attempt to prevent the apocalypse.
