'Invasion': AppleTV+ faces technical glitch, annoyed fans ask them to 'sort it out'
There's a new danger in town and its not from this planet as humans find out in 'Invasion' on Apple TV+
Apple TV+ finally released 'Invasion' and dropped the first three episodes tonight. 'Invasion' joins the ever-popular sci-fi thriller genre as the show revolves around aliens and their attack on the residents of Earth. The thriller will take audiences on a journey across the planet as we see the infrastructure of mankind collapse slowly with the appearance of mysterious predators. The show has a stellar cast that has Sam Neill, Shamier Anderson, Golshifteh Farahani, Firas Nassar, Shiori Kutsuna, Tara Moayedi, and Daisuke Tsuji in the lead.
The Apple TV+ series is an ambitious project which has been filming since 2019. When the trailer dropped, alien and science fiction lovers were thrilled and looked forward to its release. But unfortunately, the show that should have opened with a bang had a poor response. This was not because viewers didn't like it, but because viewers couldn't watch it in the first place itself as they were greeted rudely by technical errors. Read on to know what happened and how fans called out Apple TV+
