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.This message has been edited. Last edited by: swampdog,

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

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

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.

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.
