3 Reasons Why You Need to Watch Apple TV Plus’s ‘The Morning Show’ Right Now—Aside from the Big Name Cast

Apple TV +’s big draw to get fans to watch The Morning Show was undoubtedly the three main stars they pay $1 million per episode. Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell certainly make a solid trio of characters. However, there are three more reasons to watch that don’t include the fantastic actors. Let’s take a look at what they are that might have you throwing $4.99 a month towards Apple TV+.

Every episode of ‘The Morning Show’ will make you question culturally relevant topics

Apple TV +’s flagship series touches on current events topics every single episode. The best part is that the characters argue over how to cover the issue and why it’s relevant. 

For example, the sixth episode covered the wildfires in California. Alex Levy (Aniston) wanted to run a piece about a good samaritan saving abandoned dogs, while Bradley Cooper (Witherspoon) wanted to touch on how the wealthy hire private firefighters to save their homes. It’s phenomenal how the series ties the storyline of the show into real life in America—Kanye West paid firefighters $60 million to save his mansion in hidden hills.

“Open people’s eyes to what’s really going on in the world,” yelled Bradley, “instead of force-feeding them a bunch of glossy garbage.” 

The show not only touches on the #metoo movement, but also culturally relevant topics such as abortion, workplace gender equality, and the disparity between the rich and the poor in America. 

“This show is so timely,” wrote one Instagram user. “[I] Love it.”

“The problem is that the end result is that you’ve got more firefighters protecting the wealthy than the poor,” argued one Redditor when discussing the latest episode. “There are only a finite number of qualified people who can put out fires, and some of them are being sapped from the public sector and allocated to protecting the rich.” 

The series is sparking excessive discussion over relevant topics. 

The graphics on Network Television cannot compare to ‘The Morning Show’

Fans cannot stop raving over how on point the CGI is in The Morning Show. Everything looks incredibly real and crisp.

“There were so many good visuals using the wildfire setting this episode,” wrote one fan on Reddit. “Fantastic show made even better with the Cinematography.”

“[Did] anyone notice how great the lighting and shadows were in this episode?” asked another Redditor. “The fires and motel lamp light make the scene better.”

You need to stream The Morning Show right now so that you can see the cinematography fans are talking about.

The writing of ‘The Morning Show’ is blowing people away

Fans are impressed with the writing for each of the characters in The Morning Show. They continually comment on not only the three big-name stars but many of the other cast members as well. 

“It’s a show that’s not afraid to be boring or subdued at times, and that just makes the drama more believable,” wrote one fan on Reddit. “And I have to say, it’s fun to watch a show where they spend REAL money. Other shows would have had half the amount of extras at the episode 2 Gala. Apple knows how to $pend! I’ve read all the bad reviews and disagree with them all. This show is amazing.”

“I never thought I’d fall in love with someone like Billy Crudup,” added another fan, “but here we are.”

“I love his character,” agreed another Redditor. “He’s got so much energy and invites chaos like an old friend. He ignites the scenes that he’s in.”

Fans are raving about the culturally relevant topics, graphics, and writing of The Morning Show, which can only be streamed from Apple TV+. If you do not have the streaming service, you can download the app to any TV or device.

The first three episodes are free to stream, but after that, it is $4.99 monthly. New episodes of The Morning Show drop every Friday, and fans believe they are worth every penny.
