Hidden Gems of Apple TV+

To watch a game after the fact you have to drop a huge amount on a 2nd subscription, and the interface spoils the results. Super annoying.

I don't watch much sports so I haven't investigated the details, but I remember seeing a "show sports scores in thumbnails" toggle recently when I was poking around in my Apple TV options for something else. Could be worth looking into.

Ted Lasso season 3 starts tomorrow. It looks like the episodes will be released weekly. Our subscription is inactive so I'll probably wait for at least a month and binge a few, unless the pressure to discuss the show real-time becomes too great.

Ah, who am I kidding, Apple, take my money!

"Long Way Up". Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman ride electric Harleys (LiveWires) from the tip of South America to LA.

If this is the last season of Ted Lasso, I do hope we get a Roy Kent spin-off or something.

My morning cardio workout felt like an Apple ad: Me on the treadmill watching Ted Lasso with my iPad and my AirPods. I'm such an Apple whale.

Loved the episode. I barely looked at the timer.

I dipped my toe in this month for the first time to watch some AppleTV shows. I've enjoyed many (most recently For All Mankind) and one thing I was surprised at is zero Apple product placement, unless I've missed it.

The Morning Show and Ted Lasso are filled with Apple products.

It's harder for shows not set in current times.

Im enjoying Shrinking. It's got fun writing, great actors, pretty much grabs you right away.
The Big Door Prize, and Loot, not so much. Only gave them one episode, not sure I'll give them more.

Really enjoyed For All Mankind, Severance, Foundation, Ted Lasso.

What next as I continue to devour Apple?

I’ve watched Ewan McGregor's Long Way Up, Invasion, and Mythic Quest and they’re all worth a watch.

I’ve not seen them yet but Slow Horses, Servant, Extrapolations, and the Mosquito Coast all look interesting.

Oh yeah I knew I forgot one. Loved Mythic Quest too. I'll try invasion next

Slow Horses is stellar. Just finished season two. Apparently season three is incoming as well.

I adored the first season of Home Before Dark. Also, The Morning Show is one of my favorite shows currently airing.

Thoughts about See?

Brutal fights. Well produced. But kinda slow a fair bit too. Did watch the entire first season and was generally positive about it. Did not watch the second season and it's been a bit too long where I don't recall exactly what was going on - so may not watch it until I/if I watch S1 again.

The amount of thought that went into the setting really impressed me. But it started to go off the rails a bit by the end of S1/first ep of S2 and that's when I fell off. Still well worth checking out IMO.
