So I sat down the other night and decided to give a couple of shows a try, starting with See, the epic new sci-fi series starring Momoa and directed by Lawrence. I dig their work, I dig science fiction, and I'm all about the epic.
"Bring it on," I said.
The show sucked! I'm usually more than willing to suspend my disbelief, but I couldn't accept a world where a virus had wiped out most humans, and rendered the survivors blind. Nor could I accept, even after a hundred years or so, these blind people could survive in the wild, build shacks to live in -- not to mention some nifty, medieval looking clothing -- and wage tribal warfare on each other.
You read that right; these blind people can fight!
So I didn't bother past the first 57-minute episode. Instead, I switched to Snoopy in Space. I'm a huge Charles M. Schultz nut. I love Snoopy and the Peanuts gang. As a fan, I really enjoyed these 8-minute episodes that to put our beloved beagle into orbit. It has the spirit of the Schultz comics, and teaches us something about space as well.
Sadly none of the other programming appealed to me. The Morning Show, Dickinson, and Ghostwriter just aren't my thing. I might be into Servant (from Shyamalan) and Truth Be Told (about a true-crime podcast), but they don't appear until later this month, or into December.
And I didn't care for Amazing Stories when it first ran in the 80s, so I'm not that interest in a new version now.
So I doubt I'm going to stick with Apple TV Plus. There's just not enough of my kind of thing to keep me there, especially with Disney + a week away.
Have you tried it out? And, if so, what do you think of this streaming service?
