"Greyhound" was great. And you are correct. Hanks looked like he was actually fighting that battle. I was able to immerse myself in that movie and live it as if I were there on the North Atlantic with Hanks. I just watched that movie again about a month ago. Fantastic.

Apple TV "Friday Night Baseball" is incredible. Coverage like I have never seen. Good announcers, but more importantly, cameras on the field giving you 360 views of what the players see. The camera man will, for example, follow the pitcher out to the mound when he's walking from the dugout, with the camera facing out from the pitcher, while the camera man walks around the pitcher as the pitcher is walking giving you a view of what it's like to be that pitcher walking to the mound during a game. They don't do this all the time during the game of course, you can't interfere with the play by having camera men out there during the game, but when they can, they immerse you in the game like no other coverage.

SWMBO loves "The Snoopy Show". She's a fan of "Peanuts". I will say those cartoons are high quality. and look like the original animation done in the 60s by Melendez and his crew for specials like "A Charlie Brown Christmas".

My first hook into Apple TV Plus was their series "SEE" with Jason Momoa. What an incredible premise for a series. It's 600 years in the future. Mankind has survived a world virus that rendered all humans blind from birth. No one has had sight for 500 years, and man has learned to survive, live and fight without the gift of vision. Suddenly, there are a few humans again being born with sight, having built some immunity to the virus. Brilliant screenwriting, and acting.

I’ve watched some of the baseball on Apple TV. It is definitely different, but looks incredible.

Even the recaps done by MLB network are pretty

Especially the chicks

Unless I'm mistaken, Ralph, "Friday Night Baseball" on Apple TV is produced by Apple, and not by the MLB Network. I have the MLB Netork on my cable streaming system, and it's nothing like Apple TV's coverage. Different announcers, different coverage style.

And I agree with you. Especially the chicks.

Late at night you can dialup the “recaps” from MLB net as a separate show. Two different productions …….for sure
