Not to dwell on it too much, but you’ve probably watched a lot of content on streaming services this year. You might even worry that there will be nothing good left to watch as you relax over the Christmas holidays. Well, fear not, The Mac Observer is here with some recommendations of great things lurking on Apple TV+ that you might have missed – it’s not just Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special that is available.

Apple TV+ Series to Catch up With Over Christmas

Snoopy in Space

There’s more Peanuts than just A Charlie Brown Christmas on Apple TV+. Snoopy in Space was amongst the first shows released when the service launched. The series follows your favorite pooch’s ambitions to be an astronaut and is totally lovely. Perfect family holiday viewing.

The Earth at Night in Color

“There were only six episodes,” was the main complaint from my colleague Andrew Orr in his review of this nature documentary mini-series on Apple TV+. Narrated by Tom Hiddleston, the show uses amazing cameras 100 times more sensitive than the human eye to show what animals get up to while we’re asleep.


This beautifully shot series shows some of the world’s most innovative dwellings. If your own four walls are feeling a bit small at this point, it could give you a bit of inspiration to change things (albeit on a MUCH smaller scale) this Christmas.

Central Park

A musical cartoon series about the goings-on at New York’s famous park, a rare lighter show in the Apple TV+ catalog. It stars Josh Gad, Leslie Odom Junior and Kristen Thomas. Totally silly – what else is required at Christmas?

Visible – Out on TV

If you want something a bit more serious, this documentary series tells the story of how LGBTQ+ people have been portrayed on TV over the decades. Almost every big name you could think of appears in this show that includes Wilson Cruz and Wanda Sykes amongst its exec producers. It’s the kind of TV I think only Apple could make.

What I’ll be Watching on Apple TV+ over the Holidays

There are a few things I want to catch up on:

  • Home Before Dark – A 9-year-old journalist inspires the pursuit of answers in a mystery cold-case.
  • Little Voice – A talented young performer tries to make it in New York.
  • On The Rocks – Rashida Jones and Billy Murray team up in a bittersweet comedy.
