Recently, I took advantage of the price cut and bought the Sean Connery, Timothy Dalton, and Pierce Brosnan collections of James Bond movies, as well as “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” with George Lazenby’s one and only appearance as 007.
The individual movies all show up under the “Recently Added,” Last 3 Months,” and “Action & Adventure” listings (well, except for “OHMSS,” which, for some reason, appears under “Action” rather than “Action & Adventure.”) However, I wanted to collect all the Bond movies into a James Bond folder. You can’t actually create a folder, but you can create a playlist of a collection of movies. To do so:
Group Movies in Apple TV
- Open the TV app on your Mac.
- Navigate to the “Library” tab.
- Press and hold your mouse (or trackpad) and drag over the movies you wish to group. You can also Ctrl-click on individual titles.
- Go to the File menu and select “New > Smart Playlist.”
- Name the new playlist (such as, in my case, “James Bond”).
- The movies will be assembled in the playlist IF you’ve downloaded them. If you haven’t you be asked to download them before they can be added to the playlist.
- After you’ve created a playlist, you can drag and drop other films into it.
By the way, contrary to some critics’ opinions, Pierce Brosnan was actually a very good 007. It’s just that after “Goldeneye,” the other three films as the superspy were diverting trifles, but not classic Bond.
