netflix declared war the moment it set foot in the SVOD market (video on demand service). Today, it must be admitted, we are less and less in front of our television channels, and more and more on streaming platforms. But the one to whom we do the most harm, it remains the cinema. Indeed, with the wide choice of content offered to us netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney +, OCS, Salto, etc. movie theaters are more deserted than a few years ago.
But what’s great about these streaming platforms is their large catalog, but above all the possibility of watching our films and series, whenever and wherever we want. One thing is certain, the SVOD war is well and truly declared, bringing with it a multitude of content to watch. So much that we have sometimes (often) difficult to make our choice.
So today we are giving you a list of the most watched series on Amazon Prime Video to help you decide or to give you another reason to subscribe. Hope it helps you!

5. Wheel of Time
We were talking about it before: The Wheel of Time. She was in the top 1 for a while, but she was overtaken by the previously cited series, Reacher.

She had even become the second best launch of the series, just behind the series Hunters.

This is the series Hunters who had been a hit during the year 2020, ahead The Wheel of Time or Reacher. The Rotten Tomatoes site, mentioned above, has a 68% audience score. Nevertheless, the series has been criticized a lot, and the Auschwitz memorial itself goes beyond its criticism.
Produced by the great Jordan Peele (who directed the films Get Out, Us, Nope), the series looks back on the tragic history of the Jews during Nazi Germany, and on the various tortures and despicable treatments they suffered. However, a made-up chess scene particularly displeased. Thus, the memorial expressed itself on this subject:
“Auschwitz was filled with horrific suffering documented in the accounts of survivors. Inventing a fake human chess game to Hunters is not just dangerous madness and caricature. This will feed future Holocaust deniers. We honor the victims by keeping the facts accurate.”
