There’s no doubt that Apple TV hasn’t been killing their TV show game, with AMAZING series releases in “Ted Lasso”, “The Shrink Next Door”, “Afterparty” (just to name a few), they have been dominating the market and continue to do so with their new hit thriller, “Severance”. Created by Dan Erickson and directed by Ben Stiller, it stars Adam Scott, Zach Cherry, Britt Lower, and Christopher Walken. The plot follows Mark (Scott), an employee of Lumon Industries who agrees to a “severance” program in which his non-work memories are separated from his work memories. “Severance ” succeeds at everything it tries to do in season 1 and has a bit of everything you could love in a tv show. Adam Scott gives one of the most authentic, touching, and incredible performances I’ve seen so far this year and with overall top tier acting, plot, dialogue, musical score, cinematography and production design, “Severance” is near perfect.
“Severance” is an audacious, mysterious, and thrilling 9.0 out of 10. It’s a breath of fresh air and a dramatic insight into the perils of corporate drudgery, “Severance” is the complete package. “Severance” is most likely going to be my favorite tv show of 2022 (besides Better Call Saul) – from start to finish, season one is a perfect mix of thrilling plot development, amazing acting, strange twists, and incredible cinematography, all of which is backed by a refreshing and unique storyline. There’s little not to like and this should be considered a MUST WATCH if you have Apple TV. “Severance” is flawless and is worth buying Apple TV just to watch the 10 episodes in season 1. With “Severance” being renewed for season 2 already, I’m very excited to see more of Adam Scott and what’s next for the workers of Lumon. Do yourself a favor and watch this one ASAP.
