Honestly, I'm not quite sure whether I should call this "Amazon Video," or "Amazon Studios," or "Amazon Prime Video," or "Amazon Originals," or just "Amazon"... or what. The company Amazon.com was founded in 1994, and soon became a major online bookstore, as well as selling increasingly more kinds of things. Amazon Unbox started in 2006 as a place to rent or buy video online. Amazon Studios started in 2010, as a competitor to Netflix and Hulu, though they had begun producing films in 2008. They began producing original TV series (or more accurately, webseries) in 2013. I was aware of Amazon making original shows at that time, though I didn't really get a chance to watch anything regularly until fall of 2017. I should also say that some shows which are labeled on the site as Prime Originals, are actually acquisitions. Anyway, I'll list anything I've watched on Amazon that the site calls Prime Originals, I guess. (As long as Amazon is the original distributor in America.)
