Amazon has a number of good-to-great original shows that not a ton of people watch because the shows are only available through Amazon Prime, a subscription service that costs $99 a year. The series are positioned sort of like a bonus feature to Prime membership, which is first and foremost a way to get free shipping on consumer products. But apparently Amazon has decided that it wants people to sign up for Amazon Prime specifically for the shows, and it's made the pilot episodes of a number of its most popular shows available for free on YouTube and Facebook.
