Is there anything quite as nice as curling up to a good movie on a cold and blistery winter day?
What’s even better, is when you can find a TV show to binge watch and let the cares of the world slip away.
I’m back today to share another round-up of my favorite flicks. These posts are always TIDBITS reader favorites around here, and I feel it is my duty to watch and share 😉
We are spicing things up this go around by venturing out of Netflix and into the wonderful world of Amazon Prime.

I hope you’ll find hours of entertainment with my top 10 clean feel-good TV shows to watch on Amazon Prime.

Before we get started, I have a few disclaimers I’d like to add.
“Clean” and “Feel Good” is of course relative. What I may view as clean may possibly offend you. What you view as clean might possibly make me cringe. Get the point? Having said that, I’ll explain myself. All of these shows, with the exception of 1, are rated TV-PG or TV-G. Though, I’ve learned that ratings are not always what they seem. This list below consists of series of TV shows that made me feel good to watch. They have wonderful messages, intriguing stories, and are not saturated with disturbing violence, crude language, and graphic immoral scenes. Some are so wonderful I wouldn’t hesitate to let even my toddlers watch with me. Some have adult content that would not be appropriate for kids. Many of them are from BBC, because I often applaud the British for making quality drama shows without throwing in so much filth. However, those BBC shows often allude to scandal and immorality, but they don’t show graphic scenes that would make me feel embarrassed if my husband saw what I was watching – know what I mean. If you are a fan of Downton Abbey, and could tolerate the scandal found in that show, the shows recommended below are very similar.
All opinions of these shows are my own, and are not sponsored opinions by any means.
I try to limit myself to movie watching only if I’m running on the treadmill or it is a weekend. Just had to say that, lest you thought I only sat on the couch and watched TV all the time.
Depending on the time of your viewing of this post, some of these movies may have been removed from Amazon Prime. I will leave my list up, in hopes you can find a way to watch these wonderful shows somewhere else.

This one comes tippy top of my list because it is possibly the most heart warming, wonderful, and thought provoking show I’ve ever seen. I wish so badly there were more shows like this one. It is very clean, charming, and actually comes to an extremely happy ending. I should know, I watched the last five minutes 6 times in a row. If you don’t know what to watch, start with this one – without question.
No doubt you’ve heard of this one, and no doubt a Masterpiece classic. I even managed to get my husband hooked and he listened to all the books on tape after watching the show. It is very much a breathtaking drama mixed with a charming Cinderella type story. And for the sake of stating the obvious . . . Poldark is such a dreamboat! There is hints at scandal and a small amount of violence in this show. Still rated TV-PG, though I would be very careful about letting kids see this without your viewing.
Can you believe this whole series is up for grabs on Amazon Prime! Oh Happy Day!! It’s an oldie, but such a goodie! Watch it with the whole family or soak it in all by yourself. I’ll never forget watching this show at my Grandma’s as a little girl and loving it. Re-watching it as an adult was even better.
The next 3 are venturing into the world of Jane Austen. I think being familiar with her stories is sort of a rite of passage. Emma is a short series, but delightful nonetheless.
While there have been many many versions of this classic story come to pass, this is a nicely done BBC rendition. It’s nice to get a bit more of the story line in a TV series.
A modern spin on Jane Austen, and a bit quarky, I still found myself amused. Typical of Jane Austen movies is matchmaking, and sitting around and chatting and chatting about daily mundane happenings. That’s exactly what this show is depicting. I found it to be the perfect show to pop on when I was multitasking. It made doing dishes, editing pictures and so on, a little more enjoyable.
While this is intended for older kids, I found it a delight to sit and watch with my kiddos. Entertaining, magical, and unpredictable – it had my kids on edge! I think I enjoyed seeing that more than the show!
This one is very similar to Downton Abby, as it follows the lives of those in service and those enjoying the pleasures and challenges of living a life in British Aristocracy. I watched it for the Decor. The scenes were stunning!
If you’ve never watched a movie based off of a Charles Dickens story, be warned. They are very . . . well . . . bleak. They have a curiously dark and dramatic feel to them, but are very interesting. I thought the acting in this show was superb!
Ok, don’t laugh that I put this on here. But truly, Michael Landon has the perfect Angel face! It is complete with 1980’s glory, but such a classic. If you find yourself desperate for something totally clean and heart warming, this is YOUR Highway to Heaven 😉 P.S. My husband would kill for that head of hair! (hehe)
I know. I said Top 10. But I couldn’t throw this one out. Another Masterpiece classic with strong female roles during times of war. I do favor periodical shows like this.
I hope you’ve found plenty to add to your watchlist!
If you are in the market for more clean feel-good shows, I’ll always stand by my ultimate favorites which I already wrote about here.
Thanks for Reading!
