Apple and comedy will be too PC to be funny.
Yeah because See was way too G-rated. I need to pray.

Why do people keep going to the tired "too PC" trope for Apple TV+ when it has clearly been demonstrated by current content that isn't the case? It is almost like there is a list of "Apple bashing" statements for MR trolls to use that just never gets updated. That's unfair because the list has recently been updated with "Threadripper rules".

Anyhow, Apple TV+ really needs more content so I am glad to see this happening. I could use the laugh. I could also use the work so Apple come by my way and make a series already.

I know ! I was a naysayer at the start as the trailer just didn’t sell it, but what an interesting show so far. It’s not perfect but it’s definitely entertaining. Very pleasantly surprised.
it seems like Apple TV is getting bashed just like every product they’ve ever released - AirPods look like tampons noone will wear them, the iPad is a giant iPhone, no one will use it, the iPhone doesn’t have a keyboard, no one will use it bla bla bla. SHUT UP YOU BORING BORING PEOPLE.
....And relax...

A bunch of people have already jumped on your lack of understanding here. Clearly you haven’t seen some of these shows. My parents would have walked me right out of the room when I was a youngster after a few scenes in a couple of the shows I’ve watched so far. Shoving a sword down a mans throat, “praying”, numerous gruesome killings, a rape scene... it’s pretty visceral.

I was so disappointed after the “professional” reviews came out for each series, but wow were they wrong. I’m actively watching See, TMS, and FAMK. Each of them are great in their own right. The quality really sells even the less believable story lines of FAMK and SEE. This is the first time I’ve waited for an episode to drop since the 90’s.
