    There’s a new series “Little America”, and the critics reviews are great. Anyone seen it yet? It seems my personal taste is opposite compared to critics lately (I loved Star Wars Ep IX and The Morning Show but I didn’t find anything special with Joker), so I’m curious about “common folks” opinion on this one.

    So I just activated my free 1-year subscription today but I'm having some issues. When I tried exploring some series on TV+ on my Apple TV app, I'm only seeing the first 2 episodes as available then the rest I should need 249/month subscription to watch. Same issue on my 4K Apple TV's Apple TV app. But on a web browser, I could watch all the episodes on all the series normally.

    I did check my Manage Subscription page and it says that I do have a 1-year subscription with TV+.

    Is somebody having the same issue?

    Thanks, I already did a couple of hours ago and their Level 2 Techs are puzzled by my issue. They said to give it at least 24hrs and call again if the issue still exists after that.

    Received a refurbished iPhone SE which I bought from BestBuy. Can confirm that I got a 1-year free subs of Apple TV+... but had to haggle with Apple Support and quote the official news article mentioning about refurbished devices.

    But running out of stuff to watch. They can't get new content published fast enough. Going back to Netflix for now.

    Mythic Quest is filling that void that Silicon Valley has left.

    And it also helps that Charlotte Nicdao is there!

    Mm....if your device has been registered with Apple (by inputting your Apple ID credentials), run the iOS update if needed. Then, open your Apple TV app. You should see a notification that your new iPhone is eligible for the Apple TV + promo.

    For problems, contact Apple TV chat support.

    Mythic Quest certainly has that "It's Always Sunny..." vibe going on especially with Rob McElhenny in it. His character though is less of a d-bag than what Mac was in "It's Always Sunny.."

    They turned Charlotte Nicdao into their own version of Liz Lemon who looks Filipino with an Australian accent.

    I find episode 3 the funniest. It's like "It's Always Sunny" revisited with the connection of how to solve their Nazi problem.

    I liked it. The material is not too heavy nor brainy but still relevant. Each episode stands on its own so no pressure to binge. I'd still recommend you watch all of them in succession because I think it was also designed to build towards that final heart-wrenching episode.

    I like Mini Motorways and Outlanders. I play it on Apple TV.

    While on we're quarantine, Apple TV+ just came out with some new titles. I watched one episode of Amazing Stories and it brought back memories from the original series when I was a kid. Even the opening sequence with the music is a throwback.

    A new movie "Banker", with an all-star cast also looks intriguing, although I have yet to watch it. Until the Avengers and X-Men combine in MCU, this is your chance to see Falcon, Nick Fury and Beast in one movie.

    Mm...Amazing Stories and Little America are winners imo.
