This week is an exciting one for Amazon Prime members - and non-members too! Not only can you watch pilot episodes of its award-winning original series like "Man in the High Castle" and "Transparent" without being a Prime member, this week Amazon debuted three pilot episodes of completely brand new shows.

But Amazon isn't sure that you'll love all three of them. It needs your help. That's why Amazon is asking viewers to watch, rate and review these three pilot episodes.

If you like it, it will be developed into a full series. So, take some time this weekend and watch the three pilot episodes and review them for Amazon. Who knows? Your review could be what makes or breaks the future of these series.

But that's not all that's streaming this weekend. Once you're done with the pilot episodes, there are some other great new releases and selections to stream on Netflix, HBO, Hulu, YouTube and iTunes.
