Amazon Prime Original Shows

I'm trying to determine which of these shows are going to have actual seasons -- it appears they are all just pilots.

So far I've watched Down Dog, Bosch, The Man in the High Castle and liked all three. Anyone know which will be full seasons? Looks like Bosch will, I think.

Bosch did get a full season and either went up today or goes up this weekend.

Oh good! I was reading about Bosch, and planning to check it out.

I really enjoyed The Man in the High Castle. Be sure to submit the feedback forms after you watch them.

What's Bosch about? I saw that Amazon had lots of original series, but not many/any episodes, so it's good to see that they're pilots.

Look forward to seeing some more good ones. I might be in the minority, but I did like Transparent....dysfunctional whole family and all!

Bosch is a pretty gritty, hard-core cop drama. At least based on one episode. I don't know if it will include vampires or not.

Thanks. I like hard core cop dramas, but eh...not so interested in vampires.

I just came to Now Playing to ask about the Chris Carter show. I watched the Pilot and was excited about it but just read that it's not getting picked up by Amazon. I'm a little disappointed.

What the crap - Why don't they just post the full seasons like Netflix and Hulu? I wouldn't have watched MitHC if I had known it might only ever be a pilot.

I don't want to have to vote to watch tv.

Because they're using your feedback to determine which will become full series.

I think it's stupid - so basically whoever knows to vote, and isn't too annoyed to answer all those stupid "how much do you agree" questions MIGHT be able to watch more than the pilot of a show.

dissatisfied.

I don't know. I didn't bother me and it was rather easy. Disappointed that MitHC didn't get picked up.

Edit: Not sure what shows have been and not been picked up, just going by what was posted earlier in the thread.

Wait a sec... We already know which didn't get picked up?


Oh, and Bosch doesn't and won't have vampires (I don't think). I was just being silly.

I don't have patience for surveys - but more to the point...I just found out about it. I don't think most people have any idea they're supposed to fill out a survey in hopes that the show will get picked up.

OTOH - it's probably good it didn't "win" - else I would have to listen to SO through the whole season complaining about how the premise was completely implausible, like I had to through the whole pilot.

Seems that analyzing the data of how many people watched the full episode is a better measure. I'm sure they know that.

I knew going in that I needed to submit my feedback - but, I didn't realize that they'd decide so quickly and already have all the eps in the bank ready to put online over this weekend. Is that for real?

Is Bosch the only one getting made, and the full season will be online this weekend?

If so, are there full seasons of The Man in the High Castle that could show up soon? I really wanted to see that one and have heard so many good things from others that I just KNEW it was going to get a full season.

That's another thing I don't get. If you've got the episodes in the can - just put them up.

Eh, maybe. Transparent was one of the least-watched and lowest-rated pilots of the previous round and they made it anyway.

The episodes aren't "in the can." They've filmed pilots and those are up for view.

The full season of Bosch was released today. The pilot was available a year ago.

Yeah. Bosch is based on the main character (Det. Harry Bosch) in Michael Connelly's series of books (he has different series with different main characters). The books are really good (well, the last few haven't been quite so good) and I've got high hopes for the series.

Definitely no vampires

Just watched tMitHC it was great. Noticed it was the most watched pilot. I would hope to see it picked up. It was very will done. At the end I noticed it was done by Ridley Scott 's production company.

to add clarity: "Bosch" was part of a previous batch of pilots and was the only one that made it to series. "Man in the High Castle" and "Down Dog" are in the new batch of pilots, and no decision has been announced on any of them.

EDIT: Changed "the previous batch" to "a previous batch."

I'd rather vote on what series I want to see, than have some clueless executive in some conference room somewhere decide for me. I'm the subscriber, it's my money, I want to make the decision.

You'd rather have clueless viewers decide? Imagine if The Wire, Friday Night Lights, and Two and Half Men were the choices. The Wire and Friday Night Lights would never have existed in a viewer's choice system.
