It’s still somewhat new but Apple TV+ is among the many streaming services that are flooding the internet these days. However, what makes it different from others is that its catalog doesn’t have thousands of exclusive movies and TV shows. Rather, it offers only a few selected pieces of content that are claimed to be of higher quality than an average show from a web streaming service.
Still, many viewers get confused about where to start when they first log in to the streaming site or app. Most of the shows and movies are critically acclaimed and seem to be holding great viewing experience. Fortunately, Reddit fans can help shortlist content on Apple TV+ based on their favorites.
Released in 2021, Acapulco is a comedy show set in a luxurious resort in the titular location. A young Mexican man called Maximo gets a job at the resort and is thrilled by that fact until he realizes it’s not as simple as it seems.
Many Reddit users have praised the show, with Mutant-Planet, saying, “Acapulco needs more love. Criminally underrated show.” Another user, Ceshomru, agrees with them by stating, “Such an awesome feel-good show.”
For All Mankind
An American science fiction drama series, For All Mankind, is an intriguing show that tells an alternate version of history if the Soviet Union beat the United States to the moon. The show started slow but its season 2 has had people talking about it constantly, with some even claiming it to be the best drama on TV.
A Redditor, Elurztac, recommends the show to the fans of “sci-fi and space opera” and calls it “really a masterpiece.” Another fan, volerei, gives advice to viewers who might find the show underwhelming at first, “Stick with For All Mankind. Wasn’t expecting much but was surprised.”
M. Night Shyamalan has his own cult following and Apple TV+ offers a treat for his fans with Servant. Many fans on Reddit liked the show including Aln_mb0731 and Elurztac has this to say about it, “If you like mindf**k stories and the job of Night Shyamalan (6th sense, Split, Glass), go for Servant. If you love the creator, you will love the TV show.”
Season 3 of the show has recently aired on the streaming platform and fans cannot help but enjoy the dark and twisted story of The Turners and their nanny.
Winning multiple Emmys last year, Ted Lasso is probably the most celebrated thing to come out of Apple TV+. The feel-good sitcom following the adventures of an American football coach in Britain is gaining worldwide popularity. The heartfelt performances of the actors in Ted Lasso have earned them critical acclaim as well as admiration from the fans.
A Reddit user, EightBitSC, names the sitcom among the Apple TV+ series that are “top tier shows, that rival anything on another service.” They continue to say that “worth the subscription [Apple TV+] just to watch them.” Elurztac recommends the show “if you want some laughs.”
2021’s Cherry follows the journey of an army medic falling into drug addiction and crime after the war. The crime drama film showcases brilliant acting performances by Tom Holland and Ciara Bravo. The Redditor, uncle-anti, recommends the movie saying, “Cherry is a good film.”
Several fans seem to highly enjoy the sci-fi drama created by Simon Kinberg and David Weil, Invasion. Released in 2021, the show presents an alien invasion told from the point of view of five ordinary people in different places across the world. This unique storytelling is what catches the attention of the viewers.
The Redditor, MidnightBlue43, says, “Invasion is one of my favorites.” Another Reddit user, PibbleCollector, shares their opinion about the series as well, calling it “one of the best alien invasion shows.”
According to a Redditor, oneandonlybobjones, “Trying is excellent.” The Apple TV+ original show is a domestic comedy revolving around a couple who wants to adopt. It is infused with great comedy and endearing moments.
Another Reddit fan, Apart_Range7558, recommends the show too, calling it “light and very funny.” Fans who are looking to watch something light-hearted and hilarious at the same time can add it to their watchlist.
The Morning Show
When Apple entered the industry of streaming services, The Morning Show was one of the first series it launched to battle with big competitors like Netflix and Prime Video. This decision owes to the fact that apart from having a gripping storyline, the show also has a star-studded cast. It is filled with A-listers such as Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell.
The Redditor, Ceshomuru, calls it the second-best Apple TV+ show after Ted Lasso, and when talking about it, they comment, “I would say the Morning show is the best “all-around drama” with a great cast.” Other users such as YourGenerational and Apart_Range7558 also recommend this workplace drama.
Released in late 2021, Swan Song is one movie from the platform that Reddit users constantly recommend. A user, izzykelsick, names it as their favorite movie on Apple TV+ and DarkSkye1 also includes it in one of their favorite films from the platform. On the surface level, Swan Song seems like another sci-fi movie about cloning but the major themes of it go much deeper.
The movie talks about life, death, and family under the blanket of sci-fi to keep up the intrigue. It is clearly one of the bolder projects from the streaming service as it raises poignant questions in viewers’ minds regardless of whether they like it or not.
Captain America may be his most popular role, but Chris Evans doesn’t shy away from filling the shoes of much more complex roles. After playing a villain and murderer in Knives Out, Chris Evans is seen in Defending Jacob, playing a father defending his teenage son against murder charges. The crime drama is thrilling, riveting, and will keep the audience guessing until the final episode.
A fan on Reddit, _PrincessOats, comments, “I really enjoyed Defending Jacob.” Elurztac also talks about the drama pointing out that “if you like questioning yourself and polices investigation, Defending Jacob is really great.”
