MacDailyNews Take: If you’ve already started watching “Invasion” (we will soon), let us know what you think!


  1. No, not watching.


    I have Apple TV+ as a part of a Mac purchase.

    IF I had to pay in order to use Apple TV+ as a member and THEN had to pay for each show outside of several that are included with the subscription … then someone please tell me …

    Where’s the value in that?

    Is every show a “PayTV” special event?


    I can tolerate “Foundation” for no further fees as a member of Apple TV+, and that’s as it should be.

    No, if ‘Pay again and again and again’ is their game, I’m not playing.

    Additionally if that’s the way they are going to roll, then when the subscription runs out, I’m out. I’ll find another service when I feel that I need more than the free YouTube.

    Apple just lost my subscription dollar.

    1. If you find another service when you feel the need for more than free YouTube, won’t you have to pay that service? What is the difference between paying this service or that service?

    2. Hey dipshit, there is NO pay per view. The first three episodes are “released” today. Further episodes will be “released” later……they will be FREE to watch too.

  2. Another wokeness invasion POS brought to you by Timmy!
    -Bad white supremacists Neo-nazis.. CHECK!
    -Sentimental lesbian characters…. CHECK!
    -Minorities are the heroes… CHECK!

    1. No silly, the all that woke crap is why the aliens invaded! They’re sick of the wokeness and they want to eradicate it.

      Maybe Timmy isn’t as woke as we think…
