Apple TV+ Series Review Roundup: The Morning Show, See, Dickinson, and For All Mankind

Ahead of Apple TV+ launching on Friday, reviews are now out for some of the first series premiering on the streaming video service, including The Morning Show, See, Dickinson, and For All Mankind.

Most reviews have panned The Morning Show and See, opinions were mixed about Dickinson, and For All Mankind was acclaimed.

The Morning Show

– Variety: “Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston can’t salvage this politically muddled, underthought, and underwhelming streaming misfire.”

– The Hollywood Reporter: “After a brutally dull pilot and a meandering second episode, there are distinct hints in the third hour of a more satisfying and confident The Morning Show, one that actually gets value out of leading ladies Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.”

See

– Variety: “Spiraling away from narrative control as its first three episodes unreel, this series, about a post-apocalyptic future in which nearly everyone is blind, wastes the time of Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard, among others, on a story that starts from a position of fun, giddy strangeness and drags itself forward at a lugubrious pace.”

– The Hollywood Reporter: “As you’ll find is a trend with this first batch of Apple TV+ originals, See isn’t close to a good show thus far, but it does just enough to make you believe that under the right circumstances, there might be a good show here somewhere, eventually.”

Dickinson

– Variety: “Given the show’s scattered narrative and stylistic approach to Emily’s life and work, its biggest strength by a long shot is its star […] Even when the show around her starts to crumble under its own ambitious weight, [Hailee] Steinfeld usually finds a way to carry it.”

– The Hollywood Reporter: “The writing is well-informed by historical research, with episodes based on many real events from her early life. But in wanting to be both a serious teen drama and a black comedy simultaneously, the half-hour show instead comes off as tonally incongruous, awash in wry hipster flatness.”

For All Mankind

– Variety: “Of the original series launching Apple’s streaming TV service Monday, ‘For All Mankind’ is by far the strongest, especially because it makes the most of its budget and subsequent capacity to dream a bit bigger than most.”

– The Hollywood Reporter: “The Apple TV+ series is a solid effort at epic, alternate-history storytelling, but feels a bit derivative and moves too slowly.”
