I was pretty excited for this show, but I’m disappointed that the initial reviews weren’t great. Probably still going to give the first few episodes a shot, though.
Judging by how wrong the reviewers have been on Morning Show and See I'm actually enthusiastic about this show now.

I haven't watched Apple TV+ once since Disney + came out. I've tried most of the shows at release and they are ALL agenda/minority/sexist driven. What ever happened to good old fashioned story telling?

So many great shows on Amazon and Netflix that don't do this, but Apple seems hell bent on sending a message in the shows they do. And the latest with Oprah... OMG.

The world is politically charged enough, do we really need it too in our form of entertainment? Probably why I love sticking to Marvel and DC type shows and other old fashioned characters. It was just simpler and entertaining.

I'll add, I haven't spoken to one friend who likes Apple TV+. Especially the ads for it force fed when you turn the Apple TV on and have kids around. They don't need to see some of these things. This coming from a huge apple customer and household, but this is really eroding my enthusiasm for where they are headed.
You liked a time when other people were left out of Hollywood narratives? When other peoples' experiences and cultures were not being told? I like Marvel and DC shows too, but there are other good stories, shows and experiences that everyone can relate to that do not come from only one ethnic group's perspective. Old fashioned story telling was not always good, it was only tolerated because it was the only story shown or accepted. I like to see different perspectives from cultures all over the world or among the diverse groups in America. One person's way is not always the only way to SEE (Apple TV+) things. SEE what I did there. Lol.

Critics tearing this show a new one. Unfortunate, but they also hated See and I kinda like that one so I'll give this a shot. Free is free.

Time isn't free.
My time is paid for by my employer. So you're right. I'm actually being paid to watch this.
