Marvelous Mrs. Maisel amazon pilotOver its first few years of making original TV shows, Amazon has quickly established itself as a force to be reckoned with in the comedy category.

Unlike its lackluster original dramas, multiple Amazon comedies have won Emmys and Golden Globes. 

Its comedy "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" about a 50s housewife turned stand-up comic, which debuted its first season in November 2017, was one of big winners at the 2018 Golden Globes with two major wins. 

But "Maisel" wasn't Amazon's first hit comedy. Amazon developed its prowess in comedies that blur the line with heavy drama with the Emmy and Golden Globe winner "Transparent," Golden Globe winner "Mozart in the Jungle," and the very dark British comedy "Fleabag."

But not all of Amazon's comedies have performed well. Though promising, the superhero comedy "The Tick" got mixed reviews, and Woody Allen's "Crisis In Six Scenes" was Amazon's worst original ever, according to critics.

To understand how Amazon's comedies ranked against each other, we turned to reviews aggregator Metacritic, which pulls in critic (and audience) reviews from all over the world. 

Here are Amazon's original shows, ranked based on their critical reception:
