The Best. Things To Watch On Apple TV In September

Nicole Kidman, Nick Kroll, Issa Rae, and Cynthia Erivo star in this dark, funny series rife with symbolism and allusion. Each story focuses on a different aspect of womanhood, yielding varying results.

Despite an odd lack of queer stories, the narratives that unfold are astute, poignant, and ultimately necessary. There are few, or actually none, anthology series that truly captures the solitary angle of the female experience. Roar manages to portray and expand the female fable genre that is so sought after and needed nowadays.

Severance

Workplace comedies took the world by storm some years ago, now Severance wants to satirize the dark side of corporate culture. This mystery, drama, and science fiction series promises an interesting tale.

Severance stars Adam Scott as Mark, a loyal worker that naturally begins to question everything. The employees at Lumon Industries, the series’ selected corporation, share something: their memories are erased when they come to work.

Servant

If you’re in the mood for something a little dark but incredibly addictive, watch Servant. This series is a haunting and distorted binge-watch that must be added to your list.

This series is the result of a fusion of sensibilities. The series is a creation of Hotel Babylon’s Tony Bascallop and has a couple of episodes directed and produced by M. Night Shyamalan. While staying true to the mystery and dark thrills that audiences expect from a Shyamalan project it somehow feels like something new.

Servant is a contained, unsettling piece of psychological horror. This show features some of the best performances and undeniably remarkable cinematography.

Prehistoric Planet

Not everything to watch relates to action and thrills. Sometimes the most interesting and beautiful production pieces are informatic and illustrative, as is the case with the highly-made Prehistoric Planet.

Prehistoric Planet uses the most recent research on dinosaurs to add to BBC’s previous series Planet Dinosaur and Walking With Dinosaurs. This documentary was produced by the same studio that made the remakes of The Lion King and The Jungle Book. It also features the incredible narration of David Attenborough and original music from Hans Zimmer.

Defending Jacob

Chris Evans plays Andy Barber, an assistant D.A. and devoted father who finds himself trapped in a nightmare when the case he’s investigating leads to the arrest of his own son for murder. Defending Jacob directed by Morten Tydlum of The Imitation Game is a tense and addictive murder mystery.

While the show struggles to find a balance between pulp and prestige TV, Evans is consistently great in return to TV, and he’s accompanied by an outstanding supporting cast. The cast includes the always exceptional Cherry Jones and J.K. Simmons, two legendary performers.

Meringues are delicate, sweet treats that simply melt in your mouth. You want to melt on your couch too, don’t you? The best thing about these babies is they’re easy to make, easy to store, and maybe a little too easy to get carried away eating too.

Ingredients

  • 3 Egg Whites
  • 6oz granulated sugar
  • 1oz ground, toasted almonds
  • A few drops of almond extract
  • Finely ground, decarboxylated cannabis according to tolerance and experience
  • Optional: Food coloring

Process:

  1. Mix the almonds, almond extract, ground cannabis, and half of the sugar in a bowl. Reserve to the side.
  2. Whisk the egg whites in a bowl until stiff and form soft peaks, then start adding half the sugar left in a consistent and delicate flow. Continue whisking until you can turn the bowl over without dropping the meringue.
  3. Slowly fold in the mix of almonds and flower, being careful not to over-mix or you will lose consistency.
  4. If you want to use food coloring you can choose to add it now to create a marbled effect.
  5. Preheat the oven to 120°C and prepare a baking tray with oiled parchment paper.
  6. Use a piping bag or spoon to form the meringues, you can be as creative as you want!
  7. Cook the meringues in the oven for around two hours, or until dry.

Enjoy!
