There is no real definition of friends, each definition is unique and personal to the people who share it. Gone are the days where we associate the perfect friendship to characters from F.R.I.E.N.D.S., this Friendship Day, Amazon Prime Video celebrates different kinds of friendships. We suggest you and your friends spend your binge-watching these Amazon Originals and relive your best friend moments all over again. If your friends happen to be away, set up a streaming date and stream these Amazon favorites with your best buds.
1 ) Crowley and Aziraphale
The 8.6 IMDb show, Good Omens is an apocalyptic tale that centers around an unlikely friendship of an overly zealous angel, Aziraphale and a snarky demon Crowley. They have been friends for around six millennia, the two celestial field agents live their life among humans, while sharing an unacceptable bond of friendship. Good Omens is a perfect take on how can opposites attract and even though they may be poles apart, in this case Heaven and Hell, Crowley and Aziraphale have built a relationship based on mutual love and respect.
2 ) Midge Maisel and Susie
Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
At one glance, Midge and Susie are everything short of being friends let alone best friends. Midge is an upper class Jew living in a fancy apartment in the Upper West Side in Manhattan, who spends most of her time shopping for the latest trends if she isn’t organizing parties. On the other hand, Susie is a club booker at a shady club- Gaslight, she lives in a cramped apartment, almost the size of Midge’ coat cupboard. Even though they have strikingly different personalities, they do share a strong friendship where they can be brutally honest with each other, care for each other and most importantly be each other’s number one cheerleader. This goes to show that you don’t always have to be ‘two peas in a pod’ to be best friends.
3) Fleabag and Boo
Fleabag an Emmy nominated and IMDb 8.5 rated show that tells a story of a dry witted woman who is trying to cope with a tragedy. The angry grief riddled protagonist, Fleabag, tries to heal herself by rejecting anyone who tries to lend a helping hand. Fleabag and her best friend Boo, were joint to the hip, they ran a café together. When Boo tragically dies in a car accident, which somewhat happens to be Fleabag’s fault, she tries to drown the reality with her dry humor. She is so overwhelmed by the death of her best friend, that she blames herself for, sets her on a self-sabotage mode.
