Looks great. Apple TV+ is one of the best deals in the streaming space. Great content. Wouldn’t be surprised if Apple finds its rhythm and stops with all the tacky product placement, they become the next HBO.

I would paid for Apple TV+ if the contents is action, adventure, cop, drama type programming instead of the PC type storyline you can find in the over the air national networks shows and news that has tons of SJW and WOKE messaging.
Can you name them?

I watched at least half of the Apple TV+ original series (non-documentary) and I have yet to encounter any with overt racial or social justice commentaries.

[I]Central Park[/I] has biracial family, but race hasn't ever been a thing. Kristen Bell no longer voicing biracial character next season is probably the only thing sensitive right wings might object to.

The central figure in Dickinson, Emily Dickinson, is obviously a feminist and the show depicts her as bisexual. While the show depicts lack of woman's rights in 1800s, that isn't what the show is about. It's more about slice of life and self discovery.

For All Mankind has women astronauts, one lesbian. But the show isn't about "you go girl" feminism. It merely depicts male-dominated culture in the 60s and 70s, ultimately space exploration escalating to conflicts during the cold war.

Little America is obviously pro-immigration, but presented more as American dreams, not political.

Little Voice has a supporting lesbian character, but her gradual "coming out" is a tiny part of the show.

The Morning Show, where some social commentary is to be expected (it's a frigging news-oriented show), #MeToo is merely used as a backdrop. It's more about how the news organization operates and people behind it.

All in all, so-called messaging is very minimal even if you happen to lean on the opposite political spectrum heavily. In all instances, which isn't many, racism, sexism, and other injustices are merely depicted realistically (intentionally stylized in case of Dickinson) without social commentary or being politically correct.

Looks good, still nothing on the service to make me pay another $5 a month for another streaming service.
Lack of back catalog aside, the freshman year lineup of Apple TV+ has been very impressive.

Defending Jacob, The Morning Show, Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet, and Ted Lasso are truly first rate shows, and although not for everyone, I also really enjoyed Central Park, Dickinson, For All Mankind, Greyhound, and Little America.

Just about every week, there's at least 1 episode or movie from Apple TV+ that I would watch. I also have subscriptions to Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, Netflix ($5/month for Premium from T-Mobile), Peacock (free from Comcast), and Quibi (free from T-Mobile). And I occasionally subscribe to CBS All Access, HBO Max, and Hulu. My family watches Netflix the most, then Disney+.

While impressive when compared to first year original lineup from Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, and Netflix, Apple TV+ should not be excused for not having aforementioned back catalog from other studios.

For the time being, I will let "but it's free for a year if you buy Apple products" as an excuse, but I can understand why many are hesitant to spend $5/month (or $50/year) for comparatively smaller albeit high quality contents.

I have yet to watch a show on tv+ that I didn’t like and continue watching. Central Park, Servant, For All Mankind, Ted Lasso, and Amazing Stores are some of my favorites. Foundation looks like it will be a beast of a show And we need a second season of Amazing Stories.

I just finished Showtime's 8th Season of Homeland. It's based off an Israeli show called Hatufim (Prisoners of War). Nice to see foreign shows come direct to the US instead of being 'Americanized' for television. Since Homeland is over this show could fill the 'spy thriller' gap it left behind.
