Aside from the shows mentioned above, Echo 3 also is really good. Severance should be at the top of the list though. Outstanding show.

Thanks for the suggestions so far, keep them coming if there's anything missing. I'll make a small list and try watching them during those 3 months! Guess I'll make Severence the top priority then!

Wife is a big fan of Spirited. Christmas movie, but still.

The Shrink Next Door was decent too with Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, and Kathryn Hahn. As others said, Severance is top of my list!

RE:  Apple TV+, these are what I've watched (at least in part):

 

  • Severance - counting down the seconds to season 2.
  • See - lost interest a few episodes in
  • Ted Lasso - four thumbs up
  • Spirited - also four thumbs up.  I think RR was nominated for best song from this one, and Hugh Jackman is NOT happy about that.
  • The Morning Show - again, four thumbs up.  We're waiting for season 3.
  • Mythic Quest - I got about halfway through season 1, but I need to pick it back up.
  • Foundation - I watched one episode and didn't start the next, but I want to.
  • For All Mankind - this did NOT click with me

Central Park was one of my favorite shows on Apple. Smigadoon was surprisingly great. All the documentaries I saw were really good. Beastie Boys story if you even slightly like them

For All Mankind

First season of The Morning Show is great. Felt like they had a solid mini series script and the second season just happened because it was popular.

Severance, though? Holy shit.

Only Ted Lasso is good, the others pretty slow or boring.  Spirited is good but a movie.  Echo 3 and Mosquito Coast are interesting.

Black Bird. One season mini-series. Best thing on Apple tv.

The 3 seasons of Dickinson were easily the best thing I watched on Apple TV.

Smigadoon was awesome. Very funny and a clever premise.

Mythic quest had a good first season and then it really fell off.

Funny that the Microsoft thread is the place to talk Apple (TV).

God bless Apple for not keeping Apple TV exclusive to Apple products.

I didn't expect such a resonance to my question xp

 

however I'm grateful and remembered that a few people in here talked about Apple TV in the past, so I thought it was a good idea.xp.

So again thanks to everybody that responded. clearly will start with teh series that were mentionend multiple times and then slowly make my way through the others..3 months should be enough time give me a good look at them.

Much to my surprise I got a message saying my Gamepass Ultimate is going to expire soon. Does the trick I used 3 years ago still work? I bought 3 years of gold live and converted to GPU and managed to get the extra month. Is a trip to Turkey still the cheapest way? Any recommended VPNs?

Couldnt get into Severance, but Black Bird was creepy good.

Should still work. No one's reported it not working anymore.

Beat the main Danganronpa campaign yesterday and I enjoyed it, but I don't know if I have the will to go through two more of those games on Game Pass this year before they leave especially with them being longer and from my understanding, having diminishing returns as they continue.

Xbox is so green now, guys. Introduce an energy hog mode then later disable it by default. Even better, go over a year between first party releases and no need to turn on the console at all! 😊

Not sure if this is new or I just was late to the party, but in the rewards section there is now an auto redeem for one month of game pass ultimate for 10,000 points. That is actually a pretty great value compared to the discount on gift cards. You can also redeem three months for 35K points.

My biggest challenge with finding something to watch is that I'll be looking for something to watch on my lunch break, my wife sees part of it and inevitably wants to watch it together. Which is nice, but sometimes you just want something you can watch on your own time.

At one time they would have discounds on the 3 months for 24k points.  I did that a few times and started saving points for when it happened again, but they seemed to have stopped that.  The 10k saves a few points and could be worth it since I don't usually do the $10 thing.

 

I find it tougher to find a good show for food time.  20-30 minute shows are the best, but I've watched through most of the ones I know of now.  Hulu is best for those types of shows.  Paramount+ is good when Lower Decks has a new season.

 

For Apple, I liked Mythic Quest, but it does get dull a few episodes at a time.  Severance had a great final episode, but it almost didn't hold my interest before then. (White Lotus season 2 was the exact same for me.  Only a good final episode)

Just noticed in the Microsoft Rewards Xbox app they added an auto redeem 1 month Game Pass Ultimate for 10,500 points. Is that new?

I like their baseball coverage. I wish the MLB.tv app looked as crisp and good as Apple TV.

None of their shows looked interesting to me except Ted Lass which is one of the best live action shows I’ve seen in years.

Didn't see it posted yet but We Happy Few was stealthily added to the Leaving Gamepass list without any announcement with only a few days left before it leaves. Strange to see a 1st party game leave the service. Wasn't exactly a banger. Don't think it would have cost much to retain the rights to the IP.
