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

    I said quality not viewership.

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", AMANDA SEYFRIED FOR "MANK", ANTHONY HOPKINS FOR "THE FATHER", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    Why I think Apple TV+ is a flop is that, before the release it was marketed as the new HBO considering the talent involved. Even though people like the shows they lack the prestige and the passion of the critics. The Morning Show is a good show but it’s no where near the first seasons of The Crown, The Handmaid’s Tale, Westworld, and Succession etc… and its absence at PGA, DGA and WGA proves that. IMO the only show on Apple that should be considered prestige and artistic is Servant. I know most people on this forum like Defending Jacob, but I’m 100% certain sure that if they had to rank it with other mystery shows like BLL S1, Sharp Objects, True Detective or The Night Of, it would be at the bottom of the list.

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

    It has a very low MC score and will probably recieve zero major noms so yeah it’s a flop.

    Am I the only person who absolutely loves Quibi’s mandate? Less than 10 minute bursts of high quality Hollywood content for when you’re on the go?

    Once the pandemic is over and businesses, public transport, workplace runnings etc are all back up, we are going to find ourselves waiting in queues for a lot longer than we’re used to. I’d be the first to watch a quick episode of something while I wait.

    I’ve watched Most Dangerous Game, The Stranger, When the Streetlights Go On and Fierce Queens (not my go to show but Reese presents it). Very recognisable stars, cool ideas, great production values and an easy homepage to navigate.

    I think it’s debut has been massively stifled by covid. I had no idea half of the shows existed till last week. I think it would be in Quibi’s best interest to make the entire service free for 6 months to everyone. Roll out as much content as possible and make it hard for people to leave. I also was confused why Apple didn’t make their streaming service free for at least a year. Money isn’t an issue for them and they have the visibility to make it impossible to ignore their product.

    Anyway…Quibi is being unfairly trashed. I’m excited to see their full slate of programming and hope this format of storytelling gets to continue.

    You do get a year free trial, if you’re already subscribed to Apple Music.

    I voted for Run because the writing was horrid. It could have and should have been so much better. It wasted a great performance by Wever on a mess of a script and plotting.

    I didn’t vote for The Politician because I haven’t watched season 2. I didn’t vote for Hollywood because I knew it’d be disappointing and that’s what I got. But Ryan Murphy shows usually disappoint me.

    Voted for “Avenue 5.” That was practically unwatchable. Apple TV+ isn’t a flop. “The Morning Show” put the streaming service on the map and will be a significant Emmy contender this month. “Run” was excellent. “Hollywood” and “Space Force” at least were subscriber-based successes for Netflix, even if they’re both critical duds. I’m guessing that “The Politician” is still around due to Ryan Murphy’s special relationship with Netflix, but it received a second season, so clearly some audiences out there are responding and enjoying it. It’s not a “flop” by definition. I’d have voted for that as a close 2nd in this poll based on content.

    As Iannucci’s follow-up to one of the all-time comedies, the disappointing Avenue 5 has to be it.

    Update: Now that Emmy nominations are out I can officially confirm that Run, Space Force and Avenue 5 are flops. The Politician and Hollywood flooped to a lesser extent. From Apple, only The Morning Show received major noms but failed to score a series nom.

    Vicky Jones surprised me with Run. She’s actually an extraordinary playwright and she did well writing the episode, “Don’t I Know You?” for Killing Eve in season 1, but obviously that didn’t transition to writing an entire series. I too found the writing for Run to be subpar.
