02. Star Trek
With Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Jean-Luc Picard there was a danger this would be a clunky trip down memory lane. Thankfully, it isn’t. Picard is almost a complete departure from The Next Generation. And that’s no bad thing. At its core, this show is about rebellion, about fighting against power and corruption. Cosmic capers with Q this most certainly is not. It’s a very 2020 take, but in Picard the future sucks. This perspective allows the show to explore new complexities in the character of Picard and the fractious universe in which he lives. And it makes for compelling viewing for newcomers and diehards alike. Star Trek is one of the best Amazon Prime series ever made.
01. The boys

Outside of their heroic personas, most are arrogant and corrupt.
