Sure, its stars filled cast may somehow lower the importance of its premise, but The Morning Show is no less than an noteworthy affirmation. [Full review In Spanish].

A story much more attractive in its concept than in its execution. [Full Review in Spanish]

The high-stakes drama is dialled up to 11 in almost every scene as it draws on all the attendant controversies of the #metoo/Weinstein/Kavanaugh scandals. Top notch stuff.

It's certainly fascinating to watch The Morning Show consistently jump in the deep end without knowing how to swim - it's just not entertaining to watch it flounder around helplessly scene after scene, a creative misfire of epically-budgeted proportions.

The Morning Show doesn't have the courage of its own convictions, particularly when it comes to the subject of #metoo.
December 23, 2019
It has no consistency, no singular ambition or particular thing to say.

I don't really know if The Morning Show knows that it's high camp. I not sure that it matters. Is it doing it on purpose? Maybe, but the result is the same.

Glossy and expensive, the series is a giant, faultlessly tasteful gift box filled mostly with packing peanuts.

Directed by Mimi Leder, the opening episode takes full advantage of streaming liberties (yup, there's swearing) and tackles the #MeToo discussion better than the morning shows did.

Even when its execution is sometimes wobbly, you never mistake its ambition. It's pacy, brash and compulsive - which all adds up to something worth sticking around for.

The series hasn't necessarily gotten better, but after six episodes it's gotten wilder, contradictory, and intriguing -- the unstinting budget is a constant, but the tone fluctuates and the surprises, for better or worse, are extremely watchable.

Aside from its flaws, The Morning Show is compulsively watchable.
November 25, 2019
It doesn't have the guts to go all the way.

The Morning Show is high-voltage drama and big-time entertainment, a savage, scorching portrait of the TV news industry as a modern court of the Medicis where corporate genocide is coffee-break sport.

"The Morning Show" is stylish and fast-paced, the biggest project among nine original programs kicking off the new Apple TV+ service.
November 22, 2019
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.
November 21, 2019
Why should audiences heed a message series with nothing to say?
November 19, 2019
Even though the show's stars carry a lot of the weight, one can't help but think that The Morning Show's lack of subtlety might wind up overpowering even them. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, playing two women whose lives intersect after a catastrophic scandal, are brilliantly cast and take strong but imperfect material and lend it a little old Hollywood gravitas.

It's not great, but oh, God, is it interesting.
