Another trailer for Foundation was released today.

 

 

I can not wait for this series. I am presently re-reading the series so I can at least get the background, characters and timeline in my head.

 

Other trailers and intro's are here: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=foundation

 

Release date for the series on TV+ is September 24.

Foundation is one they have been touting since before ATV+ Launched. 

 

I'm almost over it before it starts. 

 

It'd better live up to the hype. 

 

 

 

I'm pleased to see that See and The Morning Show have got new seasons coming up shortly.

I agree that Ted Lasso is really good, and I have also quite enjoyed Home Before Dark. 

 

I'm not into scifi, so will give Foundation a miss.

+1 for Ted Lasso, it's a really feel good series especially at the moment.

 

Really happy I could make use of the free 1 year Apple TV with my iPhone purchase last year to watch that series.

Just got Apple TV+ thanks to my new work phone. Been watching 1971. It's alright.

+1 for Ted Lasso

 

I wasn't keen when it first came out. Watched an episode one wet saturday and ended up binge watching the whole series over the weekend. Its the only reason I'm paying for Apple +. 

 

 

 

Re Nobody - This is coming up as $$ to buy/rent

I quite liked Watch The Sound with Mark Ronson. Good if you've got a decent sound system on your TV. 

 

I watched Palmer last night, which was a bit nothing, really. 

 

Mr Corman is weird but for some reason I can't stop watching it - they filmed parts of this in NZ.

 

And yes, Ted Lasso is fantastic. It started out as a promo many years ago for NBC getting rights to the prem, they've reused a lot of the jokes in the series.

I don't think I'd have paid for it, but I got a one-year sub via my work iPad so why not?

 

We finished The Morning Show last night, and must say really enjoyed it; have heard all the positive noise about Ted Lasso but the trailer didn't really grab me. I also rate Jason Sudeikis as only slightly less annoying than Adam Sandler (and he's close to the top of that particular list!), so while I may try an episode it's going to be a hard road to climb...

 

Re Nobody: that shows up for me as paid-for rental content - is that the same for everyone? If so, I'm happy to rent it via Google Play Movies, given the credit I have on that...

I’m looking forward to The Foundation. My AppleTV 1 year is up prob around March next year. I’m not planning on keeping my subscription as without third party content there is not enough of it.

 

So far my favourite program on Apple TV is Tehran. It wasn’t one sided and had both sides doing bad things.

I got a free 12 month subscription to Apple TV+ when I bought the new Apple TV 4K.

 

I quite enjoyed The Morning Show first season.

 

Ted Lasso is good. I Just started watching Season 2

 

Enjoyed Trying. I have watched both Seasons.

 

Didn't like See.

 

Watched a couple of episodes of Mosquito Coast, but it didn't grab me enough to watch it all. Same with Dickinson

 

Greyhound is good, but not as much action in it as I thought there would be.

 

Physical is okay, but not really my thing.

 

Coda has got good reviews, so I may have a look at that next.

 

Don't think that I will renew my subscription when it is due.

I just watched CODA, and its a wonderful film. I absolutely loved it, even though my expectations were low when I sat down to watch.

 

I laughed, and (almost) cried, and really got involved with the characters, like I haven't done for a long time.

 

One of the best coming of age movies that I have seen. 9.5/10 ('cos no movie is perfect).
