Aside from gorging on pumpkin spice everything, spending a chilly October day wrapped in a plush blanket binge watching our fave TV shows and movies is our definition of heaven on earth. Don’t get us wrong—we love frolicking in the leaves as much as the next girl, but cold weather calls for cuddles (it’s cuffing season, after all) and countless hours of entertainment. So, if you want an excuse to get out of your fifth fall foliage Instagram photoshoot of the season, here’s everything coming to Amazon Prime Canada in October 2018, including Prime Video originals The Man in the High Castle and The Romanoffs, starring Diane Lane, Christina Hendricks and Katheryn Hahn.
