No spoilers here, except to say that the critics who panned the Golden Globe-nominated series blew it. Big time.
From the New York Times’ James Poniewozik:
After three episodes, this tech company’s first venture into TV is good only at appearing to be good. It’s like something assembled in a cleanroom out of good-show parts from incompatible suppliers. Under the gleaming surface, as sleek and anodyne as an Apple Store, it is a kludge.
From the New Yorker’s Emily Nussbaum:
Sadly, by its finale, “The Morning Show” is less addictive train wreck than glum clunker, symptomatic of peak TV: it’s yet another lacquered, poorly structured ten-episode story, whose sparks are dampened as it becomes more earnest.
My take: I call BS on Nussbaum, who seems to have dismissed all ten episodes after seeing only three. Last night’s finale was gripping television. Any TV critic who can’t see that might consider a new career.
