Every Apple TV Original Show Ranked Worst To Best | #computerhacking | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosecurity | #hacker

The list of Apple TV+ Originals is growing but with mixed marketing reach, consumers can often be unaware of how many shows the company has actually produced. From water cooler comedies to star-studded dramas, Apple TV+ maintains its reputation for rolling out premium products on its own timetable in a manner designed for maximum impact. Whether looking for Oprah’s latest exclusive or seeking out Ewan McGregor’s next adventure on wheels, the iPhone maker offers something for everyone.

Apple first dipped its toe into the world of original content in 2016 with the reality competition series Planet of the Apps, available through Apple Music. The show lasted only one season but paved the way for Carpool Karaoke: The Series, a comedic celebrity-singalong based on the popular segment from The Late Late Show With James Corden that was renewed with the often unpopular talk show host for a fifth season at its new home on Apple TV+. By the time of its launch in November of 2019, anticipation for Apple’s offerings of A-list talent-powered programming, including the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Jason Momoa was through the roof.

Straight out of the gate, Apple established itself as a dominant programming force and continues to pile on the hits two years later. With the return to television at the end of the month of The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart and a new comedy series starring superstars Paul Rudd and Will Ferrell, it’s easy to see why Apple’s content generates so much buzz. While the following list ranks the drama and comedy offerings of Apple TV+ Originals from worst to best, it’s clear worst hardly means bad where Apple is concerned.


From M. Night Shyamalan comes a mind-bending drama starring Lauren Ambrose (Where the Wild Things Are), Toby Kebbell (Fantastic Four), and Rupert Grint (Harry Potter) about the aftereffects of tragedy and unique coping mechanisms for recovering from grief. But, it wouldn’t be an M. Night Shyamalan project without a supernatural mystery at the story’s core and this one delivers in spades. Mixing grounded relatability with high concept couldn’t-possibly-see-it-coming twists, Servant leaves audiences guessing what happens next at every turn.


Hailee Steinfeld and Wiz Khalifa in Apple Comedy Dickinson

A modern comedic take on the famed poet Emily Dickinson set in the 19th century, Dickinson stars Hailee Steinfeld (Hawkeye) as the titular character who proves a rebel for all ages. Parented – and embarrassed by – the likes of Jane Krakowski (Schmigadoon!) and Toby Huss (Reno 911!), Emily finds herself shunned from society but refuses to be ignored by expressing her millennial-cheering virtues through poetry. Dickinson is a fun romp that unabashedly confronts the constraints of society and gender through the eyes of an unexpected hero and historical icon.


The terror of imagination in Apple thriller Calls

Featuring a star-studded cast in the likes of Nick Jonas (Space Jam: A New Legacy), Lily Collins (Mank), Rosario Dawson, Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian), and plenty more, Calls is a spine-tingling thriller based on the French series of the same name. The title of the series is appropriate as the narrative forms around a series of seemingly unconnected phone conversations. These ultimately unravel – along with the characters’ lives – into a dramatic mystery consumed by the terror of one’s own imagination.
