    Now, immediately after some powering-the-scenes drama, “Amazing Stories” has launched on Apple Television set+, with the initially two segments presently offered. The very first, “The Cellar,” is a time journey romance, although “The Heat” is a mixture ghost tale/murder thriller/sports activities drama.

    As we explain on the hottest episode of the Authentic Content podcast, it is really hard to inform specifically who this exhibit was manufactured for. Both of the episodes aired so considerably get really goofy, as if the display was produced for young ones — but they also move into incredibly darkish territory. Equally commence with acquainted setups, then get some stunning twists and turns, but the benefits are not quite fulfilling.

    In the conclusion, it was challenging for any of us to muster any enthusiasm for observing the show’s remaining a few episodes.
