    From what I’ve observed these shows and Apple TV+ were hyped a lot and were seen as big awards players prior to their debuts but didn’t quite live up to those expectations. I’m curious which show dissapointed you the most.

    I feel every other thing had some doubts about their quality beforehand except Run which was at least expected to be good. So many people were predicting it in the beginning, even in the top three but then it just tanked in ratings, reviews, audience reception and most likely the coming award season as well.

    I haven’t seen the Politician yet.

    I really liked a lot all AppleTV shows I’ve seen. The Morning Show, For All Mankind, Dickinson are some of my favorites shows this year. I also enjoyed See, Little America and Mythic Quest. Defending Jacob is one of my favorites limited of the year with Mrs America and LFE. For me, AppleTV+ is not a flop at all. (Disney+ definitely is on the contrary)

    Run, Space Force and Avenue 5 were watchable. I was, of course, expecting a bit more quality given the hype and the casts but I’ve spend nice moments watching them.

    So, this is why I voted Hollywood because that was a real disappointment for me. The only thing I really enjoyed was Jim Parsons.

    The Vinyl of HBO “comedy” shows.

    I kind of had reservations about AppleTV+ (although I don’t think it deserves to be in this list), Space Force and Avenue 5.

    I kind of like The Politician (in a guilty pleasure kind of way) and Hollywood was just meh. I guess I enjoyed Run but it could have been better because my god it was dreadful (especially considering PWB was producing it).

    Went with Run for my poll response but it could easily also be Hollywood.

    Voted for Apple TV+. I’m sure many here who follow tv closely have watched their shows and maybe enjoyed some, but the general public at large are not watching their programming. Rather, not watching their programming enough to justify the $1 billion-ballooning-to-$6 billion dollar price tag commitment for their original content. Reports of $15 million per ep. for shows like TMS and See are apparently well above where other ‘prestige’ shows like The Crown are at. A Spike Jonze directed Beastie Boys doc premiering to a whimper. Add on top of that a whole host of other problems (branding, lack of licensed content, etc.) being contributors to their dismal performance. We shall see how they perform at the Emmys since they’re throwing a lot of money into their campaign (which if the Democratic primary race has shown us anything, billionaires throwing money into their campaigns doesn’t buy votes). We’re talking about a streaming provider touted as the next coming of Netflix compared to singular shows, hence why it was an easy decision for me to make.

    I keep reading articles laughing about the flopping of the big flop of the season and it is not a poll option.

    Run, for me, because I was so ready for Wever to have her big lead showcase in her own HBO show, but it just wasn’t good lol (even though she was).

    I half expected Space Force to be messy, and after the first trailer, I lowered my expectations. I still haven’t even watched it and I don’t plan on it unless there’s a season 2 and it’s a giant improvement.

    I think we should cut some slack to Apple TV+. It would have been great if they jumped out of the gate with an abundance of quality content, but I also think that would have been wishful thinking. I’m still one of TMS’s bigger fans so at least it gave us that. Plus, they have some very interesting shows in the works, with great talent behind them.

    The Politician and Hollywood I expected to be watchable/good at best so wasn’t surprised I didn’t like them and Avenue 5 was never something I was really anticipating.

    Why did I think this thread was about the drama series contenders?💀

    You’re right about Quibi, but I’ve never seen that hyped or talked in here so that’s why I didn’t include it.

    Wouldnt this thread be more relevant after the noms. If Apple TV+ ends up getting multiple noms it would be quite idiotic to see it winning this.

    I didn’t watch through all of these shows, so I can’t say. But for me, the most disappointing thing I watched this year was Westworld. During the season I kept going back and forth on whether or not I hated it, but now that the dust has settled, I’m pretty sure I did.

    And they just won a Peabody, some other awards for their shows and the audience reception has been fairly good for most of their content as well. It also feels somewhat weird to compare a streaming service with shows.

    I think what the user who created this thread probably intended to talk about in terms of flopping was the quality of the shows and the hype of the quality of the shows rather than the awards chances.

    Out of interest what show is this?

    But space force is an audience hit so it’s invalid too
