The show is competing against "Only Murders in the Building," "What We Do in the Shadows," "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," "Hacks," and other shows. "Ted Lasso" stars Jason Sudeikis as an American coaching a soccer team in the UK.

"Severance" is a psychological thriller that has received rave reviews.

Severance is probably the best show in TV history. That finale!! ?

I pretty much immediately binge-watched the entire season a second time to uncover all the hidden details and easter eggs that I missed the first time. The show gets better with every watch.

Btw, if you still haven't yet, go read the leaked letter from one of the employees of Lumen Industries. Read it carefully from beginning to end (do not skip to the end). You will be mind-blown all over again. You can find the letter in Apple Books.

Severence. Took me about 2 episodes, but then hooked. I never really liked the main actor, and the fact it seemed a low developing series, made it difficult to start with. However, after I finished them all, I agree, one of the finest shows I have ever seen. They'd better hurry up with the next season

The only show worthy of awards is Better Call Saul, and it's not even close. That show is a damn masterpiece. Everything the Breaking Bad crew learned they perfected and applied to Better Call Saul. It's embarrassing for the Emmy's to not even have given Michael McKean a nomination in Season 3 for Chicanery... what a sick joke.

Seriously, the one show that's pushed the envelope with creativity and done it beautifully gets SNUBBED? WHY???
