Five Days at Memorial (Apple TV, eight episodes) comes pre-loaded with moral gravitas, being based on events that took place at a New Orleans hospital in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in August 2005.

It wants to meld disaster drama with systemic critique, à la HBO’s Chernobyl, but its idea of critique is to show a character giving George W Bush, flying indifferently above the flooded city in Air Force One, a middle finger.
