It’s not fair to judge a show by the trailer. But still.
From the write-up:
Dickinson is a half-hour comedy series starring Oscar® nominee Hailee Steinfeld. Created by Alena Smith, Dickinson audaciously explores the constraints of society, gender, and family from the perspective of rebellious young poet Emily Dickinson.
Cue the video:
My take: Comedy? I know it’s not going to end in marriage, and I’m not seeing any laughs. But maybe I’m too close to Emily DIckinson (15 miles as the crow flies).

A Bird, came down the Walk –
He did not know I saw –
He bit an Angle Worm in halves
And ate the fellow, raw. — E.D.
