Sigmund - "This 2018 documentary recounts the story of one of history's most talented technology teams. From the first smartphones to social media, e-commerce, eBay and emojis, the ideas that now dominate the tech industry were born at General Magic, a 1989 Silicon Valley start-up. WWDC week seems as good a time as any to watch this truly inspiring work."

Jonathan - "This Sunday is the finale of probably the best show so far this year. Kate Winslet gives a career best performance as Mare, a detective in a small town outside of Philadelphia. There is one central murder mystery to solve but the show spins off into the many connected characters’ lives, each part as engrossing as the central plot. It’s masterful television and I’ll be as sad to see the end of it."

Devon - "Created by James Lee Hernandez and Brian Lazarte (who's new documentary is coming to Apple TV+), this documentary series is about the Monopoly games at McDonalds where back in the 90's and early 00's you would go and buy your meal and these little game pieces attached would be linked to prizes with the top prize worth $1 million. It turns out that the whole time this game was being defrauded by a group of people who were cheating the game and claiming the top prize every year. This fascinating docuseries captures that story through the people involved."

James - "I was lucky enough to attend the world premiere of ‘A Ghost Waits’ at the 2020 Glasgow Film Festival and have raved about it to everyone I know ever since. I’m so glad that it’s now available to own on Apple TV. Shot on a shoestring budget, this is a quirky love story about a man tasked to fix up a house that is being haunted by someone who has been given a job in the afterlife to keep the house empty. It’s melancholic, funny and totally original. Director Adam Stovall has crafted a real labour of love here. I was blown away by it in the cinema and I can’t recommend it enough."
