Apple is trying so hard to make sure nobody could possibly be offended by their content that it sounds about as interesting as watching paint dry.

I don't think the experience of celebrity dads/kids is the typical experience.
Get back to me when they talk about how dads routinely get railroaded in divorce, or how they're often assumed to be a secondary parent at best.

TV+ shows are anything but bland. Unless you mean apolitical, which is true (besides for Dear) and the reason I love Apple TV+. I cannot stand the agenda many network shows have, if you know what I mean.

Everything on there is extremely political. That was their entire point. Remember Timmy at the launch saying TV+ will change the way you view the world?

Maybe the misunderstanding you're having is that the word politics means a great deal more than the american republican vs democrat divide.

I don’t know, it seems very surface level. Are they going to talk about the real experiences that fathers go through like the fact that 85% of custody trials end with the dad losing custody? Are real issues like gender stereotypes (men are seen as non-essential compared to mothers by people who hold beliefs inline with traditional gender roles) going to even be mentioned or is it going to be “oops, the baby pooped itself life is hard lol”
