What's coming to Apple TV+

All new shows arriving in summer 2024.

Remember when Ghostbusters fans said their childhoods were ruined by the all-female franchise reboot a couple of years ago?

I always roll my eyes when fans complain about new versions of beloved properties.

Well, now it’s my turn!

Coming this summer to Apple TV+ is a comedy-adventure series based on Time Bandits, the imaginative and amusing 1981 film about a young boy who joins a crew of time-hopping thieves.

OK, so far, so good: A series based on one of my favorite movies might not be so bad. But unfortunately, the Apple TV+ reboot stars Lisa Kudrow — who I cannot stand — and is overseen by writer and director Taika Waititi — who I also hate.

So yes, if I watch even a few minutes of this show, I’m sure it’ll tarnish my fond memories of the original 😉.

Luckily, it looks like there are plenty of good and interesting shows headed our way on Apple TV+ in upcoming months. Take our poll below: Which of these shows are you most looking forward to?

One more thing ...

I can tell you this: I've been married for 8 years, and that's had a really good influence on me. I've been very lucky, through random happenstance I just happened to sit next to this wonderful woman who became my wife. And it was a big deal. We have three kids, and it's been a big deal. You see the world differently.
