I've hardly watched any ATV+ shows, even when I had free subscription. But Severance was truly outstanding, the first must-watch show of the service for me - everything else just hasn't been to my taste or demographic.

In fact, Severance is head and shoulders above pretty much everything else out there in streaming land and TV this year (apart from Better Call Saul of course). It was beautifully crafted, with superb acting, and real Kafkaesque mystery. Can't wait for Season 2!

Congratulations. Waffle parties, melon bars and finger traps all round!

Agree, but hard to wait until tomorrow night for the best show on TV to wrap up. (Better Call Saul).

I know it's not for everyone (i.e. my wife hates it), but I binge-watched S1 of Severance a few weeks ago, and it has been a LONG time since I've been this eager for a new season of a show to arrive. It deserves every award it gets.

Finished both shows and loved both.

Out of curiosity…what happened to Foundation? Heard barely anything about it compared to the two shows above. There was a lot of fanfare at the start I thought.
