Who Are Regular Hereos?

This Amazon documentary features three hereos per one hour episode. Each hero is an "essential worker" whom the country could not have navigated without this year.

The backstories of each hero are different.
The location of each hero is different.
The profession of each hero is different.
The sacrifice of each hero is significant.
The contribution of each hero is significant.
And each hero is someone you will also recognize in: your neighborhood, your grocery store, your hospital, your community.
And each essential hero would humbly say they are "just doing their job..."

Each episode is narrated by a different entertainment star: Nick Jonas, Kevin Hart, Alicia Keys, Kelly Rowland thus far. The fifth episode is scheduled to premier June 12th.

Amazon Original Series

One of my favorite features of an Amazon Prime membership is the inclusion of Amazon Originals which are series or specials made exclusively for Amazon Prime members. I recall when Amazon Originals first began and members could view pilots and vote for their favorites. The top favorites were then made into Amazon series.

As  Amazon Originals have evolved series and specials are being made in all categories of entertainment: comedy, drama, kids, international, mystery, documentary. The content library is enormous and varied.

Some current favorites:

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Alpha House
The Aeronauts
Late Night

Amazon Prime requires an annual membership; however, a 30 day free trial is offered to give the Prime membership a spin.

  1. I was not aware that Amazon produced their own documentary series. This one ~ Regular Heros ~ sounds perfectly timed for this unusual period in our lives unlike any other. Thank you for bringing it to our attention, Tracey. I have two essential workers in my own extended family, so this recognition is appreciated.

    1. I've found a few hidden gem docs and yes, definite recognition for all who've kept this country running!

  2. This sounds like an interesting series. Thanks for the review.

  3. I’ve been impressed with the quality of the Amazon Originals series and miniseries I’ve seen, and was unaware that Amazon was also producing a documentary series. This is definitely going on my Watchlist! Thanks so much for sharing it.

  4. We are definitely surrounded by everyday heroes we take for granted who are "just doing their jobs". Those jobs have even been made more difficult with the needed protective gear (gloves & masks) to work in public places right now. I'm sure this is a wonderful reminder of the people we should be thank on a daily basis.

  5. This would be an interesting series for sure. I know several people who are considered "essential workers" during these difficult times and yes, their stories should be told. Thank you Tracey for pointing out this series to us. I had not heard of it before, but will watch it now.

  6. I am so glad you brought this to my attention. I had not heard of this series and it is definitely something I'll want to take a peek at. Thank you for the review!

  7. Thank you for this. I'm so torn about selecting a series sometimes. I appreciate your list of faves as well as Regular Heros. I'll check it out.

  8. I'll have to check this out, it sounds so interesting and I'm sure inspiring in these difficult times. Thanks and great review.

  9. Amazon has a lot of great programming though we do not currently have access. This documentary, Regular Heroes, sounds like a great and very timely choice.
