Amazon Prime sometimes gets a bad rap, but did you know it's actually a treasure trove of loads of iconic tv nostalgia for your viewing pleasure? It's got everything from Ugly Betty to Buffy the Vampire Slayer all hidden away on there just waiting for you.
Here's our pick of the best iconic series Amazon Prime has to offer...
The show follows the lives and scandals of the rich and dramatic living in Orange County, California. If you haven't seen it, expect wealthy, attractive people getting involved with all and every drama possible, whilst constantly doing it with each other. If you watched it back in the day, I guarantee you'll have forgotten a lot of the shocking twists and turns.
The fact that the whole of The Office US is on Amazon Prime and not that many people now about it is a confusing travesty.
Okay, so no hot priest, only season 1 is included on prime. But it's not like you can overdo it on Fleabag S1 re-runs.
This is not a drill. It's all on there. All 48 episodes plus four Christmas specials. That's a lot of bonnets.
The Night Manager
Remember Night Manager hysteria? The nation spent weeks discussing Tom Hiddleston's wiggling bare bum, calling each other Corky and trying desperately to recreate Elizabeth Debicki's perfect little pixie crop. Let's go back to that time, shall we?
The year is 2004. You're round your friends house swigging Yazoo and singing Usher while she sets up the DVD player with the Lost box set she got for Christmas. Life is good.
Parks and Recreation
The workplace mockumentary following the Parks and Recreation Department in Pawnee, Indiana, headed up by Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) and featuring lines like, "You know my code, hoes before bros. Uteruses before duderuses. Ovaries before brovaries."
One Tree Hill
This was the show that invented wearing a t-shirt over a long sleeve shirt while feeling lots of feelings. You'll get teenage angst on cue just from listening to the opening music, I Don't Want to be by Gavin Degraw.
Secret Diary of a Call Girl
The TV series based on the book of the same name written by the (then) anonymous escort, Belle de Jour, starring Billie Piper.
It's an easy watching sitcom following the lives of a group of friends living together in an absurdly huge loft in LA. Zoey Deschanel plays the lead role of Jess, the new and slightly irritating housemate to join the group. Great rainy day watching: there's SO many episodes, and none of them are too serious.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
All seven seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer are on Amazon Prime right now. What are you still doing here?
Isn't it time we started a petition for an Ugly Betty reboot?
Why not revisit your teenage sexual awakening by re-watching The Tudors? Got to do something while you're social distancing, after all.
More teenage angst, more hormonal feelings. Also, the birth place of a very famous gif.
It's reality TV but it's quite happy, and definitely funny. Warning: it will make you want to wear Uggs and get a spray tan. Which is no bad thing...
