As the holiday season approaches, many people will be spending a great deal of time with family and friends. We thought we’d create a handy list of shows and movies on Apple TV+ that are good for watching with family members young and old, which is great if you’ve got some extra time in the coming weeks.
Starring acclaimed comedians Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds, Spirited is the perfect holiday movie. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens novel Spirited will see several Christmas ghosts visit Scrooge Ryan Reynolds, who plays Scrooge in the movie.
Charlie Brown Thanksgiving
If you’re a fan of Charlie Brown, you won’t want to miss A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, which airs on Apple TV+. In this classic, Peppermint Patty invites everyone to Charlie Brown’s for Thanksgiving, and Snoopy cooks a holiday meal.
If you’re not into “Ted Lasso,” or have a family member who isn’t, this is a heartwarming show that never fails to please. It’s worth watching or re-watching to see Jason Sudeikis take on the role of football coach Ted Lasso. There are two full seasons available, so it’s a great watch.
From the developers of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Mythic Quest is a comedy series about a game studio that produces a popular online game. Starring Rob McElhenney, David Hornsby, Charlotte Nicdao, and Danny Pudi, this show is funny even if you’re not a gamer, and if you are, it’s funny.
There are three seasons available, with the new third season just a couple of weeks ago.
In “Loot,” Maya Rudolph plays a clueless billionaire who divorces her cheating husband, eventually becomes involved with her charitable foundation and reconnects with the real world. “Loot” is charming and funny, and it’s a quick watch with episodes under 30 minutes long.
British TV show “Trying,” stars Rafe Spell and Esther Smith as a married couple who long to have children. They fumble their way through potential fatherhood, and it’s hard not to love this show because of the chemistry between the main characters.
Musical comedy Shmegadon stars Cecily Strong and Keegan-Michael Key as a married couple stuck in the charming song-and-dance town of Shmegadon. The only way out is to find true love.
An interesting story, “The After Party” features a group of classmates who are investigated for murder after one of them is found dead. It is a mystery that you must discover with the detective, and the ending is a surprise. Since most episodes are only 40 minutes long, this is a quick watch.
“Long Way Up” is an easy-to-watch show featuring Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman riding their motorbikes to visit beautiful places in South and Central America. There are also two older shows in the same series that are worth enjoying, including “Long Way Round” and “Long Way Down.”
“CODA” is a coming-of-age story about a child of two who are deaf and her struggle between living her life and taking care of her family. CODA won the Academy Award for Best Picture, and it’s well worth a look if you haven’t seen it yet.
