Apple Shares 'See' First Look Featurette Ahead of Apple TV+ Launch

Apple today shared a new featurette for upcoming Apple TV+ sci-fi series "See," one of the first shows that will be available when ‌Apple TV‌+ launches later this week.

The trailer gives an overview of the plot of the series, which is set 600 years after a viral apocalypse. The survivors are all blind and have reverted back to a tribal culture.


The series stars Jason Momoa as Baba Voss, the father of twins who are born with the mythic ability to see. Alfre Woodard is also in the series, playing the role of the spiritual leader of the tribe.

"See" has received less than stellar reviews from media sites so far. The Hollywood Reporter said that it "isn't close to a good show thus far," while Variety said that it wastes the time of Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard.

"Spiraling away from narrative control as its first three episodes unreel, this series, about a post-apocalyptic future in which nearly everyone is blind, wastes the time of Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard, among others, on a story that starts from a position of fun, giddy strangeness and drags itself forward at a lugubrious pace."

‌Apple TV‌+ will launch on Friday, November 1 with "See," "The Morning Show," "For All Mankind," "Dickinson," and more. Apple plans to add additional TV shows over time, but at launch, content will be limited.

‌Apple TV‌+ will be priced at $4.99 per month, but it is free for students with an Apple Music subscription and those who have recently purchased an ‌Apple TV‌, Mac, iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.

Some of those 'blind men' have perfectly trimmed beards.
They are blind, yet they managed to combine the color of their clothing.

Why some women wear earrings if nobody can see them?

Speaking as a blind man, a shaved beard and color matched clothes isn't that difficult.


They built a series around a one-trick plot.

It would have been more interesting if they had made the fact that everyone is blind incidental to the plot, and not the main plot idea.

I'm looking forward to watching it. I do think it helps that for me it's free due to my 11 pro. Reviewers can always get a bit carried away, not every show has to be a 10/10 smash hit. Some of the best shows have been mediocre at times but overall enjoyable.
