For this episode, my reaction included: confusion, disbelief and disappointment. And, I kept thinking that it wasn’t a season finale….that I was mistaken….I’m not mistaken, right? Lol Does anyone know who the writers are who come up with this stuff? Do they actually discuss it with other people to see if it makes sense or seems like it would be a good idea? Do they consider their target audience and how the actions of these characters might be perceived? Do they want characters that the audience hates? What are they trying to convey in this series? How do the actors react when trying to act in these scenes? Do they get angry? Are they embarrassed? I’m sort of embarrassed for them, actually. How is possible to write a series about someone like Mitch, but create other characters who are despised just as much? Maybe, that was their goal….idk….I’m not sure it’s worth figuring it out. I may watch a third season….I don’t want this show to cause me to dislike Anniston and Witherspoon. Right now, I feel a little sorry for them. Does anyone know of any other show worth a flip on AppleTV? I’ve tried a few and they all are terrible, imo. So, going to drop my subscription, at least until season 3 of this show. I would assume that Witherspoon and Aniston are almost totally responsible for the direction of Season 2 as they are both Executive Producers with their own production companies as well as stars with clout. It is not unusual for stars with unfettered creative control to make a mess because their egos get in the way of objectively viewing the script. This episode seems as if it was a cliche of the kind of scenes an actress like Aniston would write for herself. I don't think Apple gets very involved in the creative decisions as that is one of the big draws of the streaming services - it is a place where the "creatives" can do their own thing without pesky network or studio interference. Apple at this point is using Apple+ as a way to keep consumers in the Apple fold. It worked brilliantly for iTunes which when there were only iPods. Fully disclosure - I am not an Apple executive but I live in an Apple universe - my first Apple was a Performa bought in 1993. Everything works together seamlessly so it is worth whatever small change Apple has to nurture their streaming service. I watch Apple+ on my Apple streaming device and can shift content between my iPhone, iPad and iMac as necessary and still use my iPod classic to listen to music in the car because it holds way more music than my iPhone and has my carefully culled playlists which date back to 2001. 1 Link to comment
