The series stars Josh Gad, Kristen Bell, Tituss Burgess, and Leslie Odom Jr.


Apple TV+ offers up original TV shows and movies for $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year, with a free one-year subscription available to those who have recently purchased an Apple device. For everyone else, Apple offers a one-week free trial.

Oh **** off Apple :(

I actually much prefer 1 episode a week schedule. It gives me a time to reflect and talk about it with my friends and coworkers, without risking spoilage. Talking about Netflix original almost always start with "how far did you watch" and ends with someone saying "oh, you will soon see".

And it makes watching each episode feel more like an event and something to look forward to. It's not like there aren't other shows and movies to watch.

With smaller selection of contents, one-a-week is the right strategy for Apple TV+. With COVID-19, it will likely take longer to complete an episode from now on. So this will help creators stretch their production schedule.

I hate that it's Apple exclusive. Thanks to this fact, I'll have to find "other" means of watching it. Exclusive instances encourage these alternative methods.

Are you opposed to it because it’s Apple or that it’s just exclusive to one service? Almost all streaming services have their own exclusive shows/movies to attract customers. If it’s the latter, not much I can do for you. If it’s the former, ATV+ is available on more than just Apple products, including the web.

Loren Bouchard, Bob's Burgers design aesthetic, tons of talented people, sounds like lots of fun, and it's getting pretty rave reviews:

Kind of ironic considering Central Park was created by bulldozing people’s homes and businesses in order to enhance the property values of those who lived near the park.

I switched out of Apple Music and went to Podcasts exclusively about 2yrs ago. If I have to start subscribing to outlets to get what I've always had for free because they're trying to gain marketshare, then I'll find other alternatives or means of getting them. The rich get richer...

Do what you wish.

The kids who pirate would never pay in the first place. Very little real revenue is lost. Roughly equivalent to the Hackintosh situation.
