If you could turn back time and have an alternate timeline. It is about what the world be like under the Reich. Hitler vs Japan, and a neutral zone. It’s a great drama show and a great show you can watch as a couple as it has lots of war scenes and a bit of romance with lots of character building involved.   I enjoyed this series and can’t wait for the next season!

I’ll warn you this series isn’t for everyone. It’s very different. Each episode is an entirely different story – so no two adventures will have the same actors. Each episode is about people who think they are decedents of the famous Russian family of the Romanoffs.

11. FleaBag

Best Shows On Amazon Prime Canada |

NOT Family Friendly and is an 18+ kind of show. There is a lot of swearing and sexual scenes in this tv series.

It has a strange narrative – It’s first-person and she freezes time to give you information on what she is thinking, but the background and action are still happening. I have never seen this kind of Narrative before – it’s different.

The show is about a lady that is having a terrible run of luck, suffers from depression and anxiety, and is fighting through her disaster of bad relationships, money problems and more.
