Amazon is adding five new titles to its Prime streaming lineup this week, including two originals.
The new titles will include season three of Sneaky Pete (pictured above), the Amazon original comedy/drama starring Giovanni Ribisi as a con man who hides from the Mob by posing as his former prison cell mate.
RottenTomatoes, which tracks critical reviews, gives the first two seasons a combined score of 94 out of a possible 100.
Michael Starr, the TV critic for the New York Post, notes that it’s been 14 months since the close of season two, but says season three makes it well worth the wait thanks to sterling performances by Ribisi and veteran character actress, Margo Martindale.
The New York Post writer also says Sneaky Pete’s producers have chipped in with a catch-up intro to season three.
“The long lag time between seasons…means that Sneaky Pete fans likely won’t remember where it left off last year,” Starr writes. “It’s a niggling problem that’s somewhat alleviated by an introductory catch-up montage in the May 10 season premiere.”
Wishenpoof, the other Amazon original to return this week, is an animated fantasy tale for children about a young fairy.
