We hardly watch traditional TV anymore. Streaming video services like Apple TV+ (try for free), Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video are more important than ever. But local providers such as Videoland, Film1 and Ziggo also have plenty to offer. More series are added every week and it is nice to know which series, films and documentaries really stand out. We have therefore made a selection.

New on Apple TV+: Invasion

An expensive sci-fi series on Apple TV+. In ten episodes you get to know different people and families in different places in the world. They all face alien threats. The series would have cost around 200 million dollars and is very ambitious. The story is loosely based on the story of ‘The War of the Worlds’ from H.G. Wells.

Sam Neill plays the role of sheriff, who is on his way to retirement. He finds evidence of alien life. Meanwhile, Shamier Anderson is in the Middle East. He plays a soldier who will fight against aliens. And Shioli Kutsana is an aerospace engineer preparing for a major rocket launch. We also see Golshifteh Farahani as a distraught mother and Billy Barratt as a British child who is being bullied. All five face the alien invasion, but in different ways.
