What to Watch November 2019

Temps are getting colder, but the shows are getting hotter! This month sees the launch of both Disney Plus AND Apple TV Plus. Disney's making much bigger waves, but Apple TV is quietly slipping in some interesting options, too.

Here's a link listing premieres from all channels & streaming services together by date, and I've included links to listings for specific premium channels and streaming services under my personal picks below.

And away we go!

Disney Plus  –
What to Watch November 2019

Judging by social media chatter and my own dear husband's enthusiasm, Disney Plus is inspiring massive anticipation for its Nov. 12 launch in the US, Canada and the Netherlands (the rest of the world will have to wait for various launch dates). It'll cost $7 a month unless you got in on an offer like I did to subscribe for three years for about $141 ($3.92 a month to be exact). I say I signed up, but I did it for my husband. I'll find a few things to watch (mostly various Star Wars shows and movies), but he'll find more. Here are the things I'm most looking forward to:

November 12
The Mandalorian - Badass bounty hunter stuff happens in space not long after the events of Return of the Jedi.
The World According to Jeff Goldblum - As described by CNET: "Jeff Goldblum leads each episode of this reality series by examining a deceptively familiar thing we all love – like sneakers or ice cream. Goldblum makes disparate connections between science, history and people." The trailer and Goldblum are incredibly appealing, though this could easily be an instance where the preview is more interesting than the actual show. Here's hoping that's not the case, 'cause it looks fun.

Apple TV Plus  –
What to Watch November 2019

At launch Apple TV Plus will have nine titles for your monthly $5 fee. I wouldn’t be as likely to add this service if I hadn’t recently canceled cable in favor of Youtube TV and saved a bundle, but I did, so I’m willing to give this a go. And, thanks to a recently released Roku app, we can watch without owning an Apple product. The shows I’m definitely checking out include:

November 1
The Morning Show - Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell star in this drama about a morning news show. I’m surprised they’re going for drama with the comedic chops of their stars, and the trailer didn’t leave me begging for more. But on the strength of that cast I’m willing to give it a shot.
Dickinson - Hailee Steinfeld stars in what looks to be a rollicking comedy about poet Emily Dickinson.
For All Mankind - In this alternate history the Russians beat the USA in the race to be first to land a man on the moon. The trailer looks great!
Oprah’s Book Club - Booklovers can attend this club from their couch. Every two months, Oprah Winfrey will pick a new book and interview the author. For those who want to read in advance of the episode, the first title is The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Back to Life – Originally scheduled for October, it never materialized. Now it's supposed to air in November, so here's hoping! This six-part British comedy comes to us from the producer of Fleabag. It's about a woman who returns to her small town after spending 18 years in prison. Problems ensue.
