"Severance" is a sci-fi thriller created by Dan Erickson and executive produced by Ben Stiller. The series revolves around a mysterious company named Lumon Industries, whose employees cannot recall any memories about their personal lives while they are at work. Likewise, once the employees leave the office, they cannot remember anything about the workplace. The series has been renewed for a second season.

"Black Bird" is a limited drama series created by Dennis Lehane. When a policeman's son is sentenced to 10 years in a minimum-security prison, he is offered an opportunity for a commuted sentence with no conditions by authorities in exchange for entering a maximum-security prison and befriending a suspected serial killer to get him to confess.

Apple TV+ has been nominated for Golden Globe awards in the past, including for series "Ted Lasso" and "The Morning Show." In both 2021 and 2022, "Ted Lasso" star Jason Sudeikis won a Golden Globe award for Best Television Actor in a Musical or a Comedy.

For me, Black Bird was just ok. Feel it would have made a better movie than series.
Severance, on the other hand, was about as interesting a series as I have seen. For anyone who has ever spent any time working in a corporation, the story is pretty amazing. The cinematography is easily some of the best in '22. If you haven't seen either, I highly recommend Severance. Looking forward to s2.

I couldn’t get past the second episode of Severance. I still don’t get why Apple TV+ exists.
Keep watching. Trust me, you need to keep watching. Severance gets more screwed up the deeper you go and hits hard.

Many excellent shows on ATV+. See, Slow Horses, For All Mankind, Invasion, Foundation, Defending Jacob, Amazing Stories, Surface, Ted Lasso, Tehran, not to mention the gorgeously re-mastered Peanuts shows. I am sure there are a bunch I am missing.

For me, Severance is the best show I've watched since Breaking Bad. It would be HUGE right now if it weren't on Apple TV+. If it continues to be this good, I can see it really lifting Apple TV+ to the level of the big boys.

I couldn’t get past the second episode of Severance. I still don’t get why Apple TV+ exists. The only reason I have it is because of the Apple one family bundle but I would never pay for it as a separate service.

I’d much rather Apple devote their resources to providing cheaper iCloud storage.
This is your point of view. For me, ATV+ chased Netflix into oblivion. Maybe there aren't many series, maybe some don't hold up - I'm looking at you Mythic Quest 3, but overall they are gems, and Severance or Servant are gems that are hard to find even on HBO Max.
