Yesterday, I managed to gain access to Apple TV+ and was disappointed when the dialog didn’t display to reward me with one year’s free access in exchange for my iPhone 11 Pro , turns out I was a day early, the dialog displayed today and I had a grin ear to ear.
I began checking Jason Mamoa’s series See, a post-apocalyptic series in which the populace are blinded and twins are born with sight. Their sight is hidden from the tribe to prevent their likely slaughter. It’s an interesting series, I need to watch more to truly see how it’s going to progress.
Next I checked out Morning Wars, starring Jennifer Aniston and Reece Witherspoon. This has been panned, however I haven’t minded it, though agree it’s not perfect. Reece is great.
I briefly stopped by Snoopy in Space, lasting perhaps two minutes of I think the eight or so minute episode length. This really didn’t do anything for me, maybe it’s just the content that doesn’t suit rather than being crap itself.
Next I ventured to Dickinson, a period piece about Emily Dickinson and her struggles as a writer in society that only saw women in a particular role, something she challenged the notion of. I very much enjoyed this series forward to returning and watching more.
Finally tonight I am watching a series that reminds me of the series Man in the High Castle on Amazon Prime Video in which the events of World War II are turned on their head, here too in For All Mankind the space race is re-examined and the Russians succeed in landing first on the moon, landing a huge blow to the American psyche.
I look forward to seeing further programs from Apple TV+ as they become available, I’m looking forward to the forthcoming Servant whenever it’s due. Great start!
