Severance Is Actually an Argument for Returning to the Office

After years of pandemic-driven remoteness, every Zoomified white collar worker must be feeling existential dread about a looming return to the office: Can I stomach a commute? Do I want to hear other people chewing? Would I be happier working every day in elastic-waist pants? In other words, it’s a fitting moment for Apple TV’s Severance, the most vicious satire of corporate life since Office Space, and possibly ever. In its just-ended nine-episode first season the office in question is so nightmarish — a maze of antiseptic white corridors, threateningly cheery corporate overlords, and a culture that grows creepier with each new revelation — that, by rights, it should send viewers running from the workplace forever. But whether it’s intended to or not, Severance makes a surprisingly strong argument for the opposite. For all of its inhumanity, the series suggests, the office is still the best place to work —because it’s only in the office that you get coworkers.

Apple TV Plus’ Friday Night Baseball debut wasn’t the homerun fans expected

Apple TV Plus’ first-ever live baseball broadcast left some fans frustrated and disappointed, with complaints about connectivity issues and the quality of the commentary surfacing during and after the games (via iMore). The streaming service aired the New York Mets against the Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros against the Los Angeles Angels last night, and I think the fans of all four teams can agree on one thing: Apple TV Plus’ Friday Night Baseball debut did not go down as expected.

HBO Max is getting a better Apple TV app, finally

HBO Max is promising a long-overdue fix to its busted tvOS app. Apple TV users know that HBO Max’s streaming app is subject to frequent crashing and glitches and is often overloaded during important premiere dates. In an overhaul that will continue through next week, the company billed the new app as completely redesigned with some useful new features (although Variety, which earlier reported the news, said the two apps were not too visually dissimilar).

Apple TV Plus Review: Quality Original TV and Movies at a Bargain Price

Apple is best known for its technologically innovative products and designs, and after years of rumors the company jumped into the streaming wars back in November 2019. Apple TV Plus debuted weeks before Disney Plus, putting both streaming services in the competitive spotlight. At $5 a month, the platform is the lowest-priced premium, ad-free streaming service around, but still packs high-end features like 4K resolution, HDR and mobile downloads -- as well as some of Hollywood's biggest stars, such as Jennifer Aniston, Jason Momoa, Tom Hanks and Samuel L. Jackson.

Apple TV Plus' Best Show of 2022 Is Like a Video Game

If you haven't been watching Severance on Apple TV Plus, you're missing out on one of 2022's weirdest and best shows. Severance is a potent blend of surreal workplace comedy and corporate thriller. I couldn't get enough of its first season. It's common for shows to present puzzle box narratives, it's less common to see it come together in such a compelling, expert manner.

I'm ditching my Apple TV for Roku — here's why

The Apple TV 4K and the Roku Ultra are my favorite streaming devices, but I thought I settled this whole conversation back in October 2020, when I ditched Roku for the Apple TV. I'm back today, a year and a half later, to frustratedly declare that I'm a flip flopper. Nobody wants to be a flip-flopper, I know.

Try these useful Siri commands when you watch a movie on Apple TV

I love my Apple TV, but I can’t stand the old Siri remote that came with it. Its touchpad is too sensitive, and I never know if it’s in the right orientation when I grab it. Apple did fix all that with its second-generation Siri remote, but why buy another one when the one I currently have still works—especially when I can use a few handy Siri commands to do more than what the touchpad can do.
