The Outlaws (Season 2)
I'm so excited to see The Outlaws returning so quickly! Both of the first seasons were filmed back-to-back, and it's great to have this smash hit crime thriller comedy back on Prime Video! This series is co-created by those responsible for both Mayans MC and everyone's favourite series, The Office so you know you're in for both some fantastic action and also side-splitting comedy. The story of the first 6 episode season followed seven strangers from different walks of life, forced into community service together after their various crimes. During their work one day however, they stumble across a hidden bag full of more money than they've ever seen, unaware that its true owners were extremely dangerous.
The first season ended on something of a cliffhanger, and luckily it appears that this second season picks up right where the first left off. If you haven't seen the first, you first owe it to yourself to binge it immediately, it's that great. This second season looks to be more of the same, with a fantastic cast led by none other than the legend himself, Christopher Walken! Check it out!
Be sure to check it out when the new season of 6 hilarious episodes drop on August 5. Only on Prime Video!
Paper Girls (Season 1)
All immediate comparisons to another series with teenagers set in a fantastical 1980's setting aside, I'm loving Paper Girls so far! Based on the hit indie comic book series of the same name, this story follows four 12-year-old newspaper delivery girls who stumble into a time anomaly, warping them over 30 years into the future! There, they meet their future selves and realize that they're in the center of a massive conflict between warring factions of time travelers. A conflict that will decide the fate of the universe itself.
So far I've only seen the first two episodes, but I'm definitely hooked. The story is definitely a unique take on the time travel trope, and the characters are engaging enough to make you really want to know what happens to them. It's hilarious when they meet their future selves, and there's just enough camp and sci-fi action to please fans of the genre. Be sure to check the first season out on Prime Video!
