Looks like we have this service for free. I am not familiar with anything on it other than that Greyhound movie. Anything else on it that is unique to this service and worth watching?

Not really. See might be interesting, though.

I really enjoyed Ewan Mcreggor's Long Way Around/Down/Up series. He and a friend ride motorcycles on ridiculously long trips.

I just finished the Jason Mamoa series "See". I liked it.

I enjoyed Defending Jacob with Chris Evans. It's a dramatic legal thriller based on a great book. Their flagship show they launched the service with, The Morning Show, didn't look like my cup of tea but I watched it with the girl and ended up really enjoying it. Steve Carell, Jennifer Aniston, and Reese Witherspoon all delivered as expected, but the huge ensemble of lesser know actors playing all the roles of the staff of the big morning show they all work on in the show really did a great job.

I love Mythic Quest. It's silly as shit but it follows a fictional video game studio as they release an expansion to their best selling online game (think World of Warcraft), and all the insane personalities trying to work together to get it done. It’s from some of the people behind It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Highly recommend Ted Lasso and Mythic Quest. The Morning Show was also pretty well done.

I really enjoyed 'Hunters'. About some Nazi hunters in New York, all with different skills, tracking down Nazi's. A lot of twists and turns.

Opps..check that, I think it's an Amazon Prime program.

The Morning Show was terrific, I thought. Jennifer Anniston (*sigh*), Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carell. I had to restrain myself from binging on it.

I recently noticed that we have it for free too. I thought Deutschland 83 was interesting, especially since I lived in West Germany in the late 70s and early 80s. Tehran is pretty good so far

Another vote for Tehran. If you've seen and liked Fauda on Netflix, you'll love Tehran!

Tehran. I watched the final episode of Season 1 last night. Wow!!! What an ending! I was totally blindsided by that plot twist!

I hope they do a Season 2.

It's just totally refreshing seeing an interesting story idea that hollyweird doesn't trash out.

Tehran is dragging out for us... We loved Ted Lasso and thought Greyhound was excellent. Servant is worth a watch as is Defending Jacob, although we both started running out of steam on them towards the end.

Ted Lasso

I got Apple TV for free when I got my phone a little over a year ago, and Ted Lasso is the only show I've found worth watching on the platform so far.

Apple does a really bad job of laying things out. Its hard to tell what's included and what for rent/purchase. I recently got an email from them saying they are giving me another 3-4 months free. I assume its because no one is watching and they are desperate.

I watched those back when they were on Netflix years ago. Good stuff, especially if you like travel shows/documentaries.

I enjoyed The Morning Show as well as For All Mankind. It's an alternate take on the space program, and some say it was "woke" but I enjoyed it.




Here's to the sunny slopes of long ago.
