For All Mankind
One of the best Apple TV+ shows out there is For All Mankind, an alternate reality tale. In this series, the space race was one by the Soviet Union rather than the United States.

The show is very ambitious and a fresh take on the alternate history genre.
Home Before Dark
The show is about a real life young investigative journalist named Hilde Lysiak. The 11 year old aspiring journalist writes her own stories in her self-published community newspaper.

Apple TV+ shows like Little America get very little fame and popularity. But it is shows like these that truly shine when put in a streaming platform. Little America is an anthology series.

The twins on the other hand can somehow see. Thus they attract a lot of necessary and unnecessary attention. There’s action, politics, drama, suspense, and intrigue of extreme caliber.

Ted Lasso is a story of humor and triumph against all odds.
When a show has a cast that includes big names like Rosario Dawson, Pedro Pascal, Nick Jonas, and Lily Collins, you just cannot go wrong. Calls that are seemingly unconnected and random reveal a deeper web of horror and mysteries as the characters face more and more disturbing experiences. Horror and suspense lovers should give it a try. The show also has an RT score of 95%.
