Opinion | Ani Bundel: 'After watching Disney struggle for years to capitalize on Kermit et al., HBO Max has beaten them to it, making the first intelligent programming Jim Henson's A-List Muppets have had literally in decades.' - NBCNewsTHINK

. It's an anthology series, focusing on one person per season, with each episode a different relationship over the course of their lives. It sounds clever on paper. Season 1 stars Anna Kendrick as Darby, and the first episodes are as much about her getting to know herself as they are about her romantic misadventures.

But the actual product is as flat as each of the romances, a series of banal dramas featuring yet another pretty white girl with vague hopes of a career in the arts, with relationships as clichéd as the version of New York she's living in. Perhaps a second season focusing on less stereotypical plots would help. But if HBO Max thinks this is putting its best foot forward, subscribers should be concerned.

Thankfully, some of the other shows are better. The brand new"Looney Tunes Cartoons," created by Warner Bros. for HBO Max, is exactly what it promises, and it is still mostly as timeless as the originals."On the Record," a thoughtful and provoking #MeToo documentary set in the music world, is much closer to the type of thing one expects when firing up an app labeled HBO.
