Original Content podcast: Apples Amazing Stories is thoroughly unamazing

Its been two-and-a-half years since the news first broke that Steven Spielberg would be rebooting his 80s anthology series Amazing Stories for Apples then-unnamed streaming service.
Now, after some behind-the-scenes drama, Amazing Stories has launched on Apple TV+, with the first two segments currently available. The first, The Cellar, is a time travel romance, while The Heat is a combination ghost story/murder mystery/sports drama.
As we explain on the latest episode of the Original Content podcast, its hard to tell exactly who this show was made for. Both of the episodes aired so far get pretty goofy, as if the show was made for kids but they also move into surprisingly dark territory. Both start with familiar setups, then take some surprising twists and turns, but the results arent very satisfying.
