    Mythic Quest’s special episode had that Community vibe going. Looks like they spent some of Apple’s money for costume, props, and special effects in the final part of the episode. It’s a good one. Looking forward to next month’s season 2 premiere.

    Tremendously enjoyed this episode. Stark contrast to last year's special Quarantine episode, which I also liked a lot, dealing which mental health during lockdown, this one is just feel-good and hopeful all throughout. And yeah, that final sequence whoa! Legit felt like watching a fantasy-film. Oh and perfect narration by Sir Anthony Hopkins. Season 2 can't come soon enough.

    Episode 1 of Calls kinda reminds me of the No Sleep thread I used to read a few years back on Reddit. Will definitely continue watching/listening.

    Late to the party on this series. I thought back then it was a documentary and been putting it off but lately hearing a lot of good things especially on second season. First episode of season 1 so far is just okay for me. I felt it dragged a bit and was too long, but the alternate universe with the Russians getting to the moon first and a different US President does seem intriguing.

    Mm....it is good TV series. Fills up the void left by the sudden cancellation of Amazon's The Man in the High Castle. Alternate history genre is underserved.

    I watched/listened to it last night with my daughter who's into these things.. finished the entire season.. found some engaging, but some a little sappy for my taste. ha ha. nice visuals though... reminded me a bit of the old iTunes visualizer.

    Started watching Calls but then my vertigo kicked in. Now I am just listening to it. I am so happy Tiny World has its Season 2.

    Excited for the second seasons of Ted Lasso and Mythic Quest. So glad that Apple extended my free AppleTV+ subscription to February 2022. Thanks Apple! ;):LOL:

    The Year Earth Changed - a worthwhile short documentary on the Pandemic's effect on Mother Nature. A sucker here for anything narrated by David Attenborough.

    Just finished season 2 of For All Mankind, as well. Intense season finalé, sad but beautiful. Looks like they're off to the red planet next season. Who will be first this time?

    Can't get over the finale and rewatching the whole 2 seasons. Kudos to Michael Dorman (Gordo) for going the method route. I thought he was just wearing prosthetics but apparently he gained a lot of weight and then later had to lose them for the role.

    Early reviews for new series The Mosquito Coast are just average. This was based on a book which was later turned into a movie starring Harrison Ford in the 80s.
