Great, another CSI, Bravo Team, FBI, etc type of show. I want hardcore science fiction; gimme some Larry Niven (Ringworld) or Joe Phillip Farmer (Riverworld), I'd love some alternate history sci-fi (Larry Flint).

I'm still waiting for anything to watch on my free 1 yr subscription.

If you haven’t found a single thing to watch on Apple’s offering so far, I’m sorry but you’re clearly looking for very specific, niche content.

Ive watched the original show , it has NOTHING to do with Bravo team , FBI or CSI , like really nothing , its not a military show in any metric , the original was non violent no sex , with strong thriller aspects and suspense , It was great show , with mediocre ending , its amazing how FAST you were able to judge the show to wrongly and get some likes along the way.... jeez.

This whole Apple TV+ thing is so cringe. Imagine if Steve jobs had Apple hire bands to make music for iTunes. They’ve completely lost their focus. Sad.
Bro. Apple's a far bigger company than it ever was under SJ. Through personnel and product range.

I don’t watch a lot of tv. I will watch and occasional b grade slasher film. But typically I watch a car or diy show. Maybe chopped. I do like forged In fire.

I keep basic cable
Ok so you’re clearly not the target market for any streaming platform.

Looks like another winner for me. Can't wait - I love Israeli action/spy/commando genre movies.

For sure I'll be subscribing to AppleTV+ when my free subscription expires.
