I can't recall any decent shows on Amazon Prime but it looks like there are some (war) films worth checking out:

1917
I thought this was great! Very well shot and one that I kept in my collection, which says a lot.

They Shall Not Grow Old
This was a fairly decent colourized documentary.

The Great War
This is a 2007 Canadian documentary featuring the current Prime Minister. Not seen it but it might be decent.

Downfall
You saw this already I think? Anyway I remember seeing ads for it on the Tube when we went seeing Visage back in spring 2005. I saw it twice at the cinema and might give it another watch.

Looks like the TV adaptation of The Man in the High Castle is on Amazon Prime. I haven't seen it myself but you could give it a go. You bought me the book as a gift, early 2005.

I just looked and you can see Our Flag Means Death on AP. You should definitely watch that!

I enjoyed watching "Elementary" with Sick Boy out of Trainspotting, it's a modern day re-telling of Sherlock Holmes set in New York City. Could try that.
I reserve the right to be wrong, and to correct myself as necessary.
