Breaking Apple, Part Two

It sounds like Apple’s original content is going to be really, really bad

After having a good laugh in this earlier post — Breaking Apple — I will now take the counterpoint.

Back when there were only three broadcast networks — ABC, CBS, NBC — TV was G-rated as hell.

And yet it produced some damned fine dramas: The Avengers, Secret Agent (aka Danger Man), The Prisoner, Roots, Patterns, Marty, The Captain and the Kings, Holocaust, QBVII, and many more. Hardly any of these have been matched in “modern” times.

So, it is entirely possible for Apple to build a G-rated line-up that stands out and is memorable.

But will they be able to do it? It sounds to me like they wouldn’t know a good show — G-rated or not — if it bit them on their necks.
