"High Desert" is Apple's second TV series created in partnership with Stiller and Arquette following "Severance," which is an upcoming workplace thriller.

‌Apple TV+‌ is priced at $4.99 per month, but Apple is continuing to offer a free year of service to customers who purchase a new iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Mac, or iPod touch.

Here's my advice about Apple TV.

[LIST=1]
* Subscribe for one or two months and watch everything you want. (Took us about 2 months, but we don't have kids at home).
* Cancel
* Subscribe again when there's enough content to last you a couple of months.
* Repeat

This way you can watch all the good stuff they offer for about $20 a year, maybe less.

They sure are coming out with a lot of new upcoming shows lately. Might be worth a subscription (or bundle) after all!

Couldn't agree more. I do this with CBS All Access since there are only a couple shows that I watch, so I only end up paying for maybe a month since I always get emails from them offering a free month or two to come back.

I definitely see myself doing this with ATV+ as there just isn't enough content to justify keeping it for $4.99/month. HBO Max and Netflix on the other hand are on the opposite end of the spectrum for me.

My expectations were modest but I was most pleasantly surprised with what I’ve seen so far. The quarantine episode of Mythic quest was brilliant and both touching and uplifting. Dickinson got me reading the poems. The new Ewan McGregor docuseries has been excellent and scratches several different itches for me. Greyhound was great. So far so good, may even subscribe after my free period is done.

When you call someone a freeloader and tell the person they need to try some honesty, that is deserving of an apology when you were wrong. You were wrong and rude to the doc. If you can’t see you owe the man an apology, I am not going to waste anymore time talking with you.

Doing the right thing with honor used to mean something.
Nope. In our new world, he gets to tell everyone how to think and spend their money. If they don’t agree, he gets to belittle them into submission. I know this cause I saw it on the news.
