I canceled my Apple TV+ subscription just over a month after the service launch, but the company’s latest batch of behind-the-scenes videos is making consider giving it a second chance.

Following up on yesterday’s preview of Mythic Quest, Apple dropped three more featurettes that give an in-depth look at episodes of Little America. Boasting a Rotten Tomatoes score of 94%, Little America has been one of the most well-reviewed shows on Apple TV+ and it’s not hard to see why in the new videos.

Each of the three videos gives more background to the story by bringing in the directors and actors that played pivotal roles in the creation process. Little America is an anthology series inspired by the true stories featured in Epic Magazine.

The first season is comprised of eight episodes, all of which have a different tone. Each episode provides a unique glimpse of what it’s like to be an immigrant in the US. The Jaguar, for instance, is a Rocky-esque tale about a young Latina woman who falls into the world of competitive squash. The Manager follows a young Indian boy who is left in charge of his parents’ hotel after they get deported.

Watch all three featurettes right here:
