Ready for an adventure? Amazon Prime Video has it, provided you're okay with cursing, violence, and more than a few crass jokes that would make a drunken orc blush. Season 2 of the animated series The Legend of Vox Machina, from Twitch superstars Critical Role, premiered today and already made the leap up to No. 3 on Prime Video's Top 10 Shows and Movies list for Friday, Jan. 20. Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan and Hunters retain the top two spots, and the odd man out today is The Terminal List.  

The most popular movies and shows on Amazon Prime Video are below, but we'll also chime in on whether or not they're worth watching. Just because people are watching something, that doesn't always mean it's good, right? And to help you plan what you'll watch next, we've added the new shows and movies coming to Prime Video, too.

  • Vengeance (2022) - B.J. Novak's dark comedy about a podcaster investigating a girl's murder. (Jan. 17)
