    I thought Finch was excellent.   But especially the visual effects -- because they didn't seem at all like a visual effect.  

    Spectacular visuals are neat -- especially if accompanied by high quality sound (like Greyhound).
    But Finch is just great story telling accompanied by excellent photography that makes it all seem normal and real.  Sometimes less is more.

    I love Foundation. I will keep Apple TV+ just for that show.

    Apart from the story itself(!), Foundation looks gorgeous.
