An Australian mystery featuring man-eating crocodiles is coming… for free!
Amazon Prime Video (technically just "Prime Video") and IMDbTV (now known as "Freevee") are changing their names to be more consumer friendly, so allow me to be the first to introduce our new name: "TV." We’re dropping the "Guide." Now you can read TV while you watch TV to find some new TV to watch. Here we’re helping you figure out what to watch on Prime Video in May, so be on the lookout for the series premiere of Night Sky, a sci-fi series starring J.K. Simmons and Sissy Spacek, on May 20. If you prefer your TV free (or just like ads), make sure to check out Troppo, a swampy mystery starring Thomas Jane, also on May 20. 
For those late to the party, earlier this month, Prime Video released Season 2 of The Wilds, a YA drama about a group of girls who crash land on an island… or so we’re led to believe! Additionally, a new revival of the Canadian sketch show The Kids in the Hall also came out. Elsewhere, Harry Bosch moved from Prime Video to Freevee for the Bosch spin-off Bosch: Legacy.
Below you’ll find our picks for the best shows and movies to watch on Amazon Prime Video in May, as well as what’s coming to Freevee. 
Scott Thompson, The Kids in the Hall
When we last saw The Wilds, one of 2020’s pleasant surprises, the teen girl castaways were getting wind that something was up, and one found out that what happened to them — a plane crash was faked and they were stranded on a deserted island to fend for themselves — was also happening to a group of boys. We’ll see what the boys were up to this season, as well as catch up with the girls to see who lived and who didn’t. Season 1 was great at dramatizing what it’s like to be a teenage girl no matter where you are; will Season 2 do the same for teen boys? [Trailer]
Bosch doesn’t get canceled; he just moves on to the next case. The popular Amazon series Bosch, based on Michael Connelly’s cop novels, is reborn in this continuation that sees Harry Bosch (Titus Welliver) turn in his badge in exchange for a private investigator’s license. Only this time, he’s doing it on Amazon’s free, ad-supported Freevee streaming service. Bosch’s daughter Maddie (Madison Lintz) will be back, and she’s following in her dad’s footsteps by joining the police academy. Hopefully she doesn’t follow his next footstep and kill someone. Also leading the series will be Mimi Rogers, who returns as Chandler. [Trailer]
Ask your parents what’s so funny about a guy squeezing his fingers together and saying, "I’m crushing your head." Or just watch this revival of Kids in the Hall, a sketch comedy series from the beloved Canadian troupe of the same name, and you’ll say to yourself, "Hey, it’s the guy from Superstore!" The final season of the original run, which ran on HBO for three seasons and then on CBS, aired in 1995, and ended with all of them being buried alive. That’s crucial information to understand the trailer. All the guys — Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson — are back and silly as ever. [Trailer
Amazon’s got a thing for older people finding weird passageways to weirder places. Following Josh Brolin’s "cowboy finds a hole" show Outer Range comes J.K. Simmons and Sissy Spacek‘s "couple finds a portal to another planet" show Night Sky. In it, Simmons and Spacek’s characters keep their secret from everyone… until someone else shows up. Commence the sci-fi mystery! [Trailer
Freevee nabbed this Australian series about a cop (Thomas Jane) hiding out in the swamps of Queensland after being falsely accused of a crime. His life is upended when a mysterious woman (Nicole Chamoun) pulls him in to solve a murder and investigate a missing person. It’s based on the best-selling book Crimson Lake, and yes, people get eaten by alligators. [Trailer]
