    • I'm only one episode in, but I'm already incredibly impressed by the risk-taking and creative storytelling that SEE on Apple TV+ brings to life.

      The official synopsis:

      A virus has decimated humankind. Those who survived emerged blind. Jason Momoa stars as the father of twins born centuries later with the mythic ability to see —who must protect his tribe against a threatened queen.

      I tuned in with an expectation of action, but not inordinately high hopes. But I must say that this show is incredible and I can't wait to tune in for more.

      You're dropped directly into the action, with a woman giving birth to twins as her village is under attack from a mysterious Witchfinder Warrior and his accompanying army, sent by an enigmatic Queen Kane. Jason Momoa as Baba Voss leads the resisting villagers, who fight to defend their incredible home.

      Without sight, members of this world have developed hyper-specialized skills — some that may defy explanation, with abilities to hear or smell beyond the normal —to adjust.

      The first episode had me on the edge of my seat, and is stunningly filmed around Vancouver. While it may not be everyone's cup of tea, if you are looking for a bold and original vision, I'd give this series a try. My husband described it as being "like a Young Adult book" in the best possible way (while it's apparently not based on any book in particular) - it's unafraid to take risks and try something new.

      I look forward to hearing what you think, finishing the series, and watching other Apple TV+ series in the future!

    • Thanks for the post about this! I feel like I need subscription management software to keep track of the incredible explosion of subscriptions I have now, but now that I've seen this I need one more.

      It's so strange to see films and TV series that open with An Apple Original or An Amazon Original.
