Amazon Prime Video Top 10 Shows and Movies: New and Trending Today, October 5

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power

Prime Video

The Amazon Prime Video Top 10 Shows and Movies list for Wednesday, Oct. 5 is once again topped by The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, or as I like to call it, TROP, which is itself short for LOTR: TROP. It's an acronym-heavy title. Nothing can even come close to unseating TROP at No. 1, though Prime Video's Thursday Night Football stream probably would if it counted. 

Prime Video's most popular new movies and shows on Prime Video are listed below, but we're not just telling you what's on the list; we're also putting our opinions on there to help you figure out which are worth watching. And to help you plan what you'll watch next, we've added the new shows and movies coming to Prime Video, too.

  • Jungle - British crime drama series set in the near future and vibing to a hip-hop soundtrack. (Sept. 30)
