“Central Park” is a sweet musical animation series that has a visual style that could be compared to “American Dad,” “Bob’s Burgers,” and the like. This series is based on the lives of the Tillerman-Hunter family in the make-believe Edendale Castle.
It revolves around the family attempting to save the famed New York park from the grips of Bitsy, an affluent grouch who intends to buy out the park to replace it with rental spaces and condos. With a star-studded cast including Stanley Tucci, Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, Tituss Burgess, and Kathryn Hahn, to name a few, you really can’t go wrong.
When you have actors involved who were also part of the beautiful movie "Minari," you know you're onto a winner. This Apple TV+ series saw the incredible Justin Chon and Kogonda come together to create a truly stunning generational saga. This story is about a Korean woman who lived during the perilous time when the Japanese occupied her land.
Youn Yuh-jung, who had already won an Academy Award for her role in the aforementioned "Minari," plays the older version of the main character. We would go as far as to say that this is one of the most gripping shows in the short history of Apple TV+. Whatever they did to make this show, they should do for every other one that comes out after.
The Tragedy of Macbeth
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out what this one is about. Based on the classic play by William Shakespeare, "The Tragedy of Macbeth" sees the unlikely pairing of Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand at the epicenter of the classic Scottish epic. What's intriguing though is that Joel Coen (one-half of the Coen Brothers), actually directed this one. This is strange, seeing that they usually do everything together.
This flick is somewhat historical and runs in black and white only. It even managed to get three Oscar nominations, which further bolsters the credibility of this movie. If arty movies are your thing, then need we say more to convince you to watch this? Besides that, you can't really go wrong with the two-time Oscar-winning Denzel Washington, now can you?
This show is one of the founding fathers of Apple TV+, as it came out back in the good old days when Apple launched the streaming site in 2019. This program helped define the company's standing in the world of streaming, and despite being a bit of an underdog for not having garnered a massive following, it got pretty good ratings from those who did see it.
This is a period masterpiece set in the 19th century that explores the constraints of family, gender, and society from the outlook of the young Emily Dickson, an aspiring poet. Of course, it has been highly fictionalized for effects, so don't expect to get an accurate biopic of Dickinson's life, but the writing and performances are still witty and funny over its three-season run.
This sci-fi mystery is based on "Wool," a 2012 series of novels by Hugh Howey. Created by the Emmy Award-winning producer Graham Yost, it starts off with a tumultuous episode that is set in a dystopian near-future whereby the last surviving humans all live in a massive underground silo.
As things unfold, we get introduced to Juliette, the engineer played by Rebecca Ferguson, who unearths some nasty truths and murders that appear to be linked to the so-called authorities running the silo. This show is suspenseful and moody and probably only suited to those fans of hard sci-fi or Scandi noirs.
