Apple today shared the first trailer for "See," the post-apocalyptic drama series debuting on Apple TV+ on November 1.


"See" is an epic post apocalyptic drama where the world has been wiped out by a virus. There are survivors, but all of them have been rendered blind.

From the YouTube description:
In the far future, a virus has decimated humankind. Those who survived emerged blind.

Jason Momoa stars as Baba Voss, the father of twins born centuries later with the mythic ability to see--who must protect his tribe against a powerful yet desperate queen who believes it's witchcraft and wants them destroyed. Alfre Woodard also stars as Paris, Baba Voss' spiritual leader.
The series stars Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard.

Apple TV+ is Apple's upcoming subscription-based streaming video service, launching November 1 in over 100 countries and regions. The platform will eventually offer dozens of original TV shows and movies, such as "The Morning Show," "Dickinson," "See," "For All Mankind" and "The Elephant Queen."

Apple TV+ will be available on the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac and other platforms, including online at tv.apple.com, for $4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial. Starting today, customers who purchase any iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch or Mac can enjoy one year of Apple TV+ for free.

Unbelievable in a literal sense. The world is too well designed for the blind population. Their clothes, decorations, stuff they use. If they are blind they wouldn’t care about such things and couldn’t build such well designed things.

It could be a very interesting idea to explore, how the world would look in a case like that. But the creators didn’t deliver it.

Looks amazing (oh, look, a pun! ... within a pun!).

For those who have read “Blindness” by José Saramago, you can get the idea of how a narrative can be really interesting when everyone is blind. What a fantastic book.

This kind of mixes concepts present in The Walking Dead (disrupting and rebuilding civilization) and Game of Thrones (beautiful visuals and battle scenes) with Blindness.

I’m really looking forward to See, For All Mankind and Amazing Stories. Totally and absolutely worth $4.99 but I’ll get it for free for a year because I’m buying a new AppleTV.

I for one predict howls of laughter as blind tribes go to battle.

Since you've obviously seen the show, please divulge the plot for episode 1-3 so I can decide if I want this. I don't mind spoilers.

:rolleyes::rolleyes:

Which obviously isn't enough to say '....the creators didn't deliver it' because you have no idea. I assume the sarcasm dripping from my first post didn't register.
The sarcasm was stupid. Obviously it was enough to say what I said. But you have no idea.

Back in high school I was taught that movies needed a 'suspension of belief/disbelief.' I suspect that will be the case here. How do blind people know the babies can see? How can they fight/hunt/fish without it looking clumsy? That will most likely be the challenge.

As stated by others, until you watch a FULL episode or two, you have no idea if the creators 'delivered.'

Maybe it’s true for you but not for everyone on the planet. You may have no idea until you watch a full episode, someone has no idea even when he watches the full season, some have idea after watching a trailer. That’s ok, people are different.

The fact that people are BLINDLY defending a show that has the dumbest concept ever* is fantastically ironic.

* "What if The Silent Place was flipped, so the monsters could see but the humans are blind... "

Maybe this show is just Plato's Allegory of The Cave for Apple fanboys.

It's been 500 years, it's all they've ever known. People born blind develop heightened senses elsewhere. They can hear and smell and feel their way through the world. Some even develop echolocation like bats, making clicking sounds and listening for how the sound comes back. You don't have to suspend belief, this actually happens in the real world today.

There's some research on the subject cited in this wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_echolocation



It's really fascinating. Brains of people born with blindness re-allocate the vision area on the brain to sound. These people can literally "see" sound. It's the same way the comic book hero DareDevil "sees". As far as we know, nobody is that advanced, but given 500 years of evolution, I can imagine humans "seeing" via echolocation like bats. Those who can do this, stay alive and have offspring. The bumbling blind people who don't adapt, die off. That may be why the Earth is so sparsely populated in this show. I can't wait to See it.
