It’s not my cup of tea, but seeing my wife and many others interested so much In it, I would say good one Apple!
Yes haters just made a big deal but ATV plus is OK. For the price.... it’s quite ok. I hope they will bring some hardcore series or films later on.
Fingers crossed, this will be a good test for them.

I think The Crown basically runs away with this one. Kind of surprised this even got nominated given all the bad reviews most of the industry press gave it.

Industry press is hating on it because they feel Apple can't or shouldn't succeed in this space. If you look at user reviews like IMDB it's clear that it's a very popular a show and people are enjoying it, myself included. It's a fantastic flagship show, but I doubt it wins.

Apparently the finale is the best episode of the season and the voters were screened that episode. The show definitely got better in later episodes but I still don’t think it was that great. I don’t think Big Little Lies was that great either. It’s just the power of a big name cast.

I think it's a good show that is trying to deal with a challenging topic with some nuance. I'm not sure it'll win against the competition though. Killing Eve is another great show.

The Globes voting board is made up of a whopping 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. If this gets Emmy nominations, then it might mean something.

No chance it will win
I can't wait for it to win best TV show. The heads of some posters here will explode and I will be smiling for all of it.

Jennifer Aniston is a lock for best actress btw - looking at the category. She's beloved by the Foreign Press and is in her first major dramatic TV role.
