So I get Apple TV+ for free, because I buy their computers and phones. I tried the Dickinson show, and OMG this stunk on ice (for me). While it got a 71/91 on Rotten Tomatoes, I couldn't get past the first episode. Basically it's was like Hamilton (the Play), let's imagine kids in the 19th century using modern vernacular and attitudes, and turn it into a teen dramedy suitable for The CW. It was complete with lesbian kissing scenes, and a complete cool/progressive fiancé/BF that totally gets Emily's free spirited 21 century feminist routine. It's like 90210 with more cheese and less depth and hitting every snowflake hotbutton it can find.

Again, to be fair, I couldn't give it much of a chance, because the first episode was so incredibly bad for me. But to each their own. I'm sure there are people that will like it. I'm just not one of them as I care about history, intelligent dialog, acting, drama, character development and so on... and this is from a guy who could put up with watching 90210, sparkling vampires (Twilight), and Hunger Games. This show proved to me that I have limits. And that while Apple won't go snowflake on every series, they certainly will go full front lobotomy on some.
