Good show. The soundtracks are great.

the idea of taking something out of the pedestal in which it was put and bring it to the plan of the ordinary is amazing. this show does it with emily dickinson's biography and character perfectly. it is the teen drama/comedy it intends to be, and it has a very good balance between deeper emotions, militancy, poetry and jokes. whiz khalifa as death? john mulaney as a dick thoreau? halee steinfeld as a petulant teen emily dickinson? we have it all! i like the "anacronysms" in it as well: the vernacular, how they express their feelings, how women are daring and are open about having political opinions etc. in a period drama i'm not sure we would have that, and i think we'd lost the goal of bringing this 1800's set drama for today's spirit, which is the greatest in this show

The target audience for this show is definitely in the female teenager realm. That alone probably turned off a whole lot of people, more profuse watchers of television. There were a decent amount of "funny" moments, and certainly a lot of goofy moments. I didn't care too much about them. But you can tell that they're written for a teenage audience. And then there are the moments that attempt to put a focus on the issues of that time period, and failing miserably. Goofy and serious do not go together, and never should. This is supposed to be within the comedy genre. Either stay true to that or don't put so much emphasize on it and then try to slip serious moments in. But, hey. At least the cinematography is nice. And Emily and Sue will appeal to many and is probably even the reason most people watched it. I'm just not within that particular group. I enjoyed it but not extremely. But I didn't hate it, by any means. I'm just not apart of what is clearly the target audience, so I hope those who are and absolutely adore it can understand that.

[Initial Impression]. I wanted to like this initial offering of Apple TV+ (Hailee Steinfeld, the backstory of a great of 19th century literature) but it was a huge disappointment. It is written for teens and pre-teens, right down to it's vernacular. It is crude and foul mouthed. There was nothing winsome about it. Emily Dickinson is depicted as petulant, crass and spoiled and there is no semblance to Americana 1840s. I have no idea what value this production was meant to have. This initial impression will go no further for I will not continue watching this series. What a waste! I give this series a 4 (bad) out of 10. [Biographical? Drama]

This is a ripoff of Another Period, but with a better budget, better actors, and worse writing. This show is aimed at middle school girls, but far too much of it would go over a tween's head. I wanted to like it for several reasons, but the show falls short.

A good show brought down by [spoiler] the dissapointing storyline of them attempting to make Ben Newton a love interest for unnecessary drama sake, despite the fact that historically he was a purely platonic friend to Dickinson [/spoiler] They should have focused more on the interesting parts of the storyline like Dickinsons relationship with her father and her relationship with Sue

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈
