The latest episode of the Steven Spielberg executive produced sci-fi anthology series Amazing Stories is available to check out on Apple TV+.
The fourth of five standalone episodes, “Signs of Life,” tells the story of a teenager who struggles to reconnect with the stranger that is their mother after she awakens from a six-year coma. It landed on Apple TV+ Friday morning.
Along with Spielberg’s involvement, Amazing Stories‘s showrunners are Once Upon a Time co-creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. The latter joined the project after Apple removed original showrunner Bryan Fuller.
So far, the series has a pretty good track record. Of the three previous episodes, two have been great and one has been so-so, if unremarkable. This latest episode, which Cult of Mac will have a review of as soon as possible, looks like the series’ darkest episode yet. While I wouldn’t expect Servant-levels of creepiness, this is definitely a different slant on the sci-fi formula thus far. From the trailer, it looks like it has a bit of a Stranger Things vibe going on.
