All Apple TV+ Shows and Movies, Ranked by Tomatometer

Apple’s streaming service is finally live, having launched in November 2019 with a suite of buzzy, high-profile shows. Which series and movies have earned their spot among the best Apple TV+ offerings so far?

Apple TV+’s newest show, M. Night Shyamalan‘s Servant, is off to a strong start. The series, which is available November 28, is Fresh on the Tomatometer, with critics hailing it as weird, Shyamalan-ian, and plenty creepy. Whether it can hold that Fresh high score – or, in a twist ending, drop – remains to be seen. Watch this space.

With star power including Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell, The Morning Show was almost a sure bet to wrack up the accolades. Hold the applause, said critics. The series about a troubled morning news show is more bluster and aspiration than prestige drama, say reviews, and its early Tomatometer score wavered between Fresh and Rotten with every new review added. The series has settled at Fresh for now – and while critics may be split, it’s certainly become a water-cooler conversation starter.

See, starring Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard, about a primitive future society lacking sight, is languishing in the Rotten zone, and is unlikely to escape it.

The surprise among Apple TV+’s earliest series is For All Mankind, the Ron Moore (Battlestar Galactica) alternate-history drama about the space race. Moore has experience with fantastical historical drama; his Starz series Outlander has a 91% series score on the Tomatometer. Joel Kinnaman (Altered Carbon) stars as a NASA astronaut in a world in which the USSR has beaten the U.S. to the moon.

Elsewhere, actress and singer Hailee Steinfeld’s ample charms are on display in half-hour dramedy Dickinson, a look at one of America’s greatest poets, Emily Dickinson, through the lens of millennial ennui. It had been trading places with For All Mankind as the best-reviewed Apple TV+ series when the service first released, and is so far the only Apple TV+ shows you’re able to binge, as all episodes were released at once.

The winner among the Apple TV+ offering so far is documentary film The Elephant Queen, which premiered at Sundance, while children’s programming like Snoopy in Space and Helpsters have yet to get a score and are listed alphabetically at the end of the list.
