It's like the saying goes: Go big or go back to selling cases of soy milk and laptop cases. Not that you can't still buy beverages and computer accessories at Amazon, because you must certainly can, but hopefully in the near future, you can also see the pilot of Hand of God, a drama starring Ron Perlman as a hard-living man with a sex-worker girlfriend and a disabled son who may or may not be transmitting messages from God. Amazon Studios is also allegedly eying the pilots of the comedy Cosmopolitan, featuring ex-pats in Paris, and Hysteria, a drama about a doctor who returns home to Houston to study a technology-born illness affecting teen girls. Let's just do this, Amazon. Between these shows and Barbarella, this is exactly what we want from you in 2014. When it comes to Ron Perlman, just follow your hearts.
