Apple is recommending a plethora of TV shows and movies over the course of the following week. This will include Apple’s recommendations, as well as Appleosophy’s TV and movie recommendations as well.

Key Highlight: The Twilight Zone (CBS All Access)

Apple TV: What to Watch (April 5–11).

Jordan Peele has proven that he’s a master at combining horror, comedy, and social commentary, so we’re beyond excited to see what he does with this classic anthology.

Offbeat Comedies:

Barry (HBO): Bill Hader’s black comedy instantly kills any notion of a sophomore slump.

The Last O.G. (TBS): Tracy Morgan’s Tray isn’t fresh out of jail anymore, but he’s still criminally funny.

Brockmire (IFC): He’s clean. He’s sober. He’s more self-absorbed than ever.

Rebellious Women

Cloak & Dagger (Freeform): Tandy and Ty figured out how much they need each other — and we sure do need them.

A Discovery of Witches (Sundance Now): This Brit import quickly won our hearts with its Wiccan-vampire romance.

Mrs. Wilson (PBS): Ruth Wilson turns in a fantastic performance as her own grandmother.

Must-See Movies

Glass: Our minds are still blown by M. Night Shyamalan’s cinematic universe super-slam. Glass can be purchased on iTunes for $19.99. At this time, you cannot rent it.

The Mule: As an actor, Clint Eastwood makes the director (himself) look awfully good. The movie can be rented on iTunes for $5.99 and purchased for $19.99.

Vice: Christian Bale masterfully disappears into the role of Bush-era Dick Cheney. This movie can be rented for $5.99 and purchased for $14.99 on iTunes.

March Madness

#5 Auburn vs. #1 Virginia (Men’s college basketball): Tony Bennett’s Cavaliers won an epic OT battle to get here. Their reward? Jared Harper and the giant-slaying Tigers. This game is on April 6, 2019, at 6:10 p.m. ET on CBS.

#3 Texas Tech vs. #2 Michigan State (Men’s college basketball): Cassius Winston and Sparty were too much for Duke. Don’t expect the Red Raiders’ stifling defense to be impressed. This game is on April 6, 2019, starting at 8:50 p.m. ET on CBS.

Appleosophy Picks:

Stuck in Love (Prime Video): Three years after his divorce, acclaimed novelist Bill Borgens is still obsessed with his ex-wife Erica, who left him for another man. Meanwhile, his fiercely independent daughter Samantha is publishing her first novel but refusing to deal with real life – in the shape of diehard romantic Lou. Meanwhile, Sam’s younger brother, Rusty – also an aspiring writer – gets too much of a taste of real life when his dream girl turns out to have a troubled past…When these three romantic situations intertwine with poignant and hilarious results, the Borgens family finds itself hurtling towards surprising resolutions and revelations, after which none of them will ever be the same. The movie is not available for rent or purchase in the United States iTunes but is currently available to stream on Prime Video.

The Big Bang Theory (CBS): The weight of winning a Nobel Prize weighs heavy on Amy’s shoulders; Koothrappali and Wolowitz try to relive the good old days after Wolowitz buys a scooter that looks like the one he had years ago. The episode premieres on Thursday, April 11, at 8 p.m. on CBS. It will be available on CBS All Access to stream the day after it airs.

Game of Thrones (HBO Go and HBO Now): With the eighth and final season not starting this weekend, but the weekend after that, it’s probably a good time to start binge-watching the previous to catch up and remember what happened to prepare yourself for the new season.

All of the TV shows and movies mentioned in this article can be streamed on the Apple TV app, which is available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Apple TV.

The movies and TV shows can be streamed on the Mac, but the sporting events cannot be streamed through the iTunes app, but instead through live TV streaming services, ESPN’s website or CBS’s website.
