1. “Hijack”

“Hijack” is a rare television series that combines a genius idea with perfect execution, from takeoff to landing. Idris Elba plays Sam Nelson, a business negotiator aboard a hijacked plane. The series expands its plot to encompass different factions on the ground, including the police and political forces reacting to the hijacking. Also, Nelson's family, his ex-wife and son, begin to play an increasingly important role in the action and mystery of the series. The series maintains a fine balance between suspense and action throughout its seven near-real-time episodes. The incessant twists and turns always leave the viewer impatient to discover what happens next. “Hijack” manages to maintain the tension and provide enough cliffhangers to keep you in suspense.

2. “The Great” Season 3

When a series is canceled, it's tempting to say that it ended too soon or that it's the logical next step. That’s what happened with “The Great,” a series that Hulu announced it had canceled last August. The cast was too big to tie into a TV series, and the show seemed to have exhausted its plot. Yet “The Great” could have gone on forever, because there was always more to tell. The series was always smarter than it needed to be, exploring questions about the nature of a good leader and grounding those questions in exceptional characters. This third season gave us a thoughtful ending for Empress Catherine and her fallen husband, Peter. The series could have continued, but it ended at an opportune time. “The Great” was always smarter than it needed to be, exploring questions about the nature of a good leader and anchoring those questions in exceptional characters.

3. “You” Season 4

If you thought this darkly humorous serial killer thriller series couldn't get any weirder, it was ready to prove us wrong. By sending Joe, played by Penn Badgley, to London where he tries to become less murderous, the series managed to shake up the established formula. Joe goes from disturbing but fascinating stalker to a completely twisted individual in London's millennial high society. This opened the door to delightful new opportunities and introduced a wave of horribly gruesome characters, including the character of Kate, played by Charlotte Ritchie, and the man named Adam, played by Lucas Gage. This season was split into two parts, with a completely crazy twist halfway through the season. These episodes stood out in the series and made Joe's psychopathic misdeeds more watchable than ever.

4. “Line of Duty” Season 6

The sixth season of “Line of Duty” is another exciting addition to this British detective series. The series is famous for its complexity, gripping storytelling, and intriguing characters. The latest season is no exception, with new intrigues, complex investigations and surprising twists. This time, Anti-Corruption Unit 12 faces new challenges and corrupt characters that will test their dedication. With exceptional performances and sharp writing, “Line of Duty” continues to captivate viewers around the world.

5. “Black Mirror” Season 6

The storylines are more twisted than ever, exploring worlds where your appearance and personal life can be exploited to create AI-generated TV series.

6. “Rain Dogs”

“Rain Dogs” is a TV series that may seem difficult at first glance, but turns out to be both funny and surprising.

The series also brings a touch of freshness thanks to the character of Selby, a rich and eccentric gay friend. Their unpredictable relationship and quirky behavior make the series one of a kind. “Rain Dogs” is a refreshing look at everyday life, blending humor and realism in unexpected ways.

7. “Happy Valley” Season 3

“Sally Wainwright's “Happy Valley” is a gripping detective story set in Halifax.

9. “The Power”

We are currently in an era where seemingly impossible to adapt novels are transformed into triumphant television series. “The Power” stands out on Prime Video by adapting Naomi Alderman’s complex and captivating novel. The story revolves around the sudden appearance of electric powers among teenage girls, upsetting the gender balance on a global scale. The series takes a global approach rather than an American-centric one, which is refreshing. The series' creators collaborated with Sarah Quintrell and Claire Wilson to bring the story to life, intertwining the perspectives of very different characters. “The Power” offers a stimulating reflection on a new world order that does not spare its criticism of the corrosive effects of power.

10. “Unforgotten” Season 5

The fifth season of “Unforgotten” is an exceptional addition to the crime drama genre. The series has always been known for its consistent excellence, and this season is no exception. The absence of the excellent Nicola Walker was filled by Sanjeev Bhaskar, who took on the role of DCI Jesse James brilliantly. The new boss, DCI Sunny Khan, is an intriguing addition, and opening the season with the reveal of her personal life adds welcome tension to the plot. Chris Lang's writing is masterful, creating palpable tension.
