    Every Fall Amazon puts a number of series premiers up for free on Unbox, but each year it seems I have more and more trouble actually finding these shows. I just stumbled upon the fact that Nashville and Last Resort have the first episode free, but I was only able to tell this after going into the show description for each one. Is there a way to browse all new shows that have the first episode free?

    Yes, you go into the Amazon interface and I think it's the bottom one, something like "free shows and promos".

    There's a lot of movie bits and such in there, but that was where I found them earlier. I seem to remember only getting 2 this year though.

    Thanks all. That last link by Allanon is prety helpful, although you still can't tell which of those shows will have actual episodes for free, and which will just have free "extras" content.

    I really wish they would do more of the free 1st episode thing. I know that I got hooked on The Killing, Terriers, and The Walking Dead that way, and ended up buying a Season Pass for both. Breaking Bad also might have had the 1st episode free, although I can't be sure. Probably a couple of other shows that I'm not remembering right now also. I don't think I've ever paid for the pilot episode for any show.
