VIDEO WORTH WATCHING

Watch Different — As if it wasn’t impossibly sized already, your streaming world is about to get bigger this fall. Apple announced their TV+ streaming service Monday, March 25 which will add around ten new series from hit filmmakers including Steven Spielberg, J.J. Abrams, and others. Spielberg will re-boot his 80s anthology Amazing Stories, as part of the rollout which spans the spectrum of reality, documentary, sci-fi and dramatic programming. Jennifer Anniston is also signed for a new drama about a morning news show, and James Corden is getting in on the ground floor with a Carpool Karaoke series. Apple is also rolling out a new TV app this spring which will serve as the platform of the streaming service. — Eric Gould

Good News TVWW readers: Television Finales: From Howdy Doody to Girls, the new collection edited by Douglas Howard and TVWW’s David Bianculli, is now on sale. More than ever, series finales have become cultural touchstones that feed watercooler fodder and tweet storms. TV Finales brings together seventy chapters, each focusing on a separate show, including reliable milestones such as The Fugitive and M*A*S*H through cutting-edge favorites like Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Breaking Bad. Writers include today’s leading TV critics, along with many TVWW contributors. "The last word on TV endings." (Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Magazine)
 
 
Television today is better than ever, and David’s book, The Platinum Age of Television: From I Love Lucy to The Walking Dead, How TV Became Terrific explores it all and how we got here. (Now on sale for $12). David maps the evolution of the classic TV genres – the sitcom, the crime show, doctor dramas, the Western – and many others. "The Platinum Age is an effusive guidebook that plots the path from the 1950s’ Golden Age to today’s era... interviews with Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Norman Lear, Matt Groening, Larry David, and Amy Schumer are high points. Bianculli has written a highly readable history." –The Washington Post
