This should dispel the narrative by some on the forum that ATV+ has absolutely no content worth watching. Kudos to Apple.

I thought that The Morning Show was really, really good. Can't wait for season 2.

Have to say, that I was pleasantly surprised by the Morning Show, especially as I didn't like Jennifer Anniston. But thanks to her great performance there I couldn't stop watching :)

The Beastie Boys was much better than I expected, especially considering how boring everything else is on Apple TV+. I tried watching See but couldn't get past the 1st episode, For all Mankind lost me really fast after the second or third episode, and Greyhound is just boring.

I know its free for the first year but everything for me has been extremely underwhelming considering the backing of Apple.
See has one of the coolest fight scenes in the history of anything. No hyperbole. I’m serious when I say I was blown away.

Seriously? Mandalorian gets a nomination for Best Drama, but Morning Show doesn't? What a friggin joke!

Also, Mythic Quest and Little America got seriously snubbed. Not cool. Chris Evans should've gotten a nom for Defending Jacob as well, in the limited series category.

The Morning Show wasn't great... entertaining enough, though, that I watched the whole season.
Despite the show's shortcomings, the cast WAS really good. Tough beat for Reese Witherspoon to get left out of the nom party, but she was definitely the weakest link in the cast. Not totally her fault. Miscast as the young up and comer. If anyone else deserved a nomination, it was Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
Also, the titles were also nice.
