Or streaming services — the new season commences Friday on Amazon Prime. Each season contains only six half-hour episodes, which means you can hoover them up like a bag of potato chips if you have a spare evening or two. The new season picks up where the second season left off: with the aftermath of what may or may not have been Sharon’s one-night stand with a cute musician while she and Rob had temporarily broken up.
With so much to watch on TV it can be difficult to plan ahead. But we’re here to help! Here are the five shows you won’t want to miss this week.
Now you can! Amazon has just launched a standalone version of their video streaming service known as Prime Video, for which users will pay monthly to have access to their expansive library of TV and movies. Formerly, Prime was $99 per year, couldn’t be cancelled until the year was over, and included Amazon’s ultra-fast shipping that arrived quicker than you could remember what you had ordered in the first place. Now for $8.99 each month, subscribers will be able to watch Amazon originals like Transparent, Man in the High Castle, Catastrophe, Bosch, and Mozart in the Jungle, and cancel whenever they’re done binging those shows.
This sitcom streaming on Amazon Prime starting Friday gets at things that are so true about marriage and parenthood that the jokes enhance the details of a relationship, and vice versa. If you don’t know the show’s premise, it’s simple: American man (Rob Delaney) met Irish woman (Sharon Horgan). As the fictional Sharon and Rob, Horgan and Delaney—who write and produce as well as star—pick away at all the little squabbles exhausted parents can have, but they’re heightened, wittier squabbles than any you or I might have.
