    I watched the first two episodes of the Morning show and despite negative reviews I like the show enough to keep watching. Steve Carell is excellent as the Matt Lauer -type anchor

    one episode of See, show is very unique. Think "Vikings" where everyone is blind. Jason Mamoa perfect casting as the leader

    one episode of For All Mankind. Strong show, great reviews, interesting as hell alternate history.

    that is all I have watched so far

    They are a start they all are fine shows.
    One thing you notice is that they are not PG shows as everyone thought they would be. There will always be a bunch of people that hate shows. Just enjoy the ones that you like. More coming down the line.

    I enjoyed For All Mankind , watched all 3 episodes, looking forward to the rest.

    We started The Morning Show, will see about this one.

    I guess I'll check out SEE.

    Not sure about See, but there are season threads already for Morning Show and For All Mankind, for those who want to discuss with spoilers.

    See is the only one that I have watched and I was kind of surprised that there was not already a season thread.

    good point, I was expecting TV-14 type shows because apparently Tim Cook ordered that, but that is definitely not the case

    Just in case anyone else doesn't know - you can download the Apple TV+ app to other devices like Roku. I am not happy about another pay service but we will see...

    I haven't watched the big 4 shows for grown-ups but I've watched the kid shows Helpsters and Snoopy in Space and they are fun enough. The don't equal the better shows on Amazon Prime but at least they are new and exciting for my daughter.

    I am a NASA nut. I love all shows and documentaries about space travel. But I could not get through even two episodes of For All Mankind. The show's suggestion that the commander of Apollo 10 could have and should have simply landed on the moon is so preposterous that it had me yelling at the TV (yes, I know, they cannot hear me). What an incredibly silly premise to start a show. I was hoping that it would quickly fade into the dustbin of poor storytelling, but here we are in episode 2 with a blowhard congressman holding hearings suggesting that the commander should have just landed because it would have been no big deal. So silly. Cancelled.

    PQ on Apple TV 4K is really nice.
    Offering is slim...I think it will need rapid growth of the library or a Breaking Bad - Game Of Thrones "killer program" to keep subs,.

    <rant>What miffs me is the free year with device purchase. Yeah I know its free for a purchase of a device that can consume it (ipad/iphone/apple tv/mac); but spend $700+ on a watch and you don't get it? You need a phone to get a watch don't ya?</rant>

    Now that we have f bombs regularly on FX, Syfy and others I don't see where the line can be drawn when it comes to "adult material".

    Which you obviously have already bought and paid for. So no free AppleTV+ for you.

    I have it on my Roku (I can't stand watching stuff on my phone or even my iPad). Only watched the first of each of these, I like them well enough. It doesn't start back up where you left off though.
