The Underground Railroad starts May 14.

Prime Video

Yes it's almost May already. We have to accept this. And numb the pain by watching heaps of Amazon Prime Video.

Probably the biggest thing this month is The Underground Railroad, a new limited series based on the Colson Whitehead novel of the same name. It's directed by Barry Jenkins, who made the astonishing Moonlight. Expect great things. The Underground Railroad launches May 14.

As always with Prime Video, there's also a heap of new classic movies to watch, like Aliens and also P!nk: All I Know So Far, which is one of those tour documentary things that are always good, particularly for fans of the performer.
