I did it. I finished Apple Tv’s SEE and I’m here to share that after a weird first episode, I ended up really enjoying the journey the writers take the view on! Yes, SEE is weird but it’s weird in a good way. You won’t experience anything close to it on television. SEE was officially renewed for a Season 2 so I thought I’d share the top reasons to binge SEE on Apple TV+!
SEE follows the story of Baba Voss (Jason Momoa), the leader of a peaceful tribe dubbed the Alkenny. The Alkenny live in the mountains in a beautiful yet brutal dystopian world and they are all blind. Baba Voss has taken a women who they found wandering the countryside, Maghra (Hera Hilmar), as his wife and in the first episode she gives birth to twins. These twins aren’t Baba Voss’ children but he raises them as his own and after their birth the entire Alkenny flee a man called the Witchfinder. The Witchfinder is hell bent on catching the “witches” which turn out to be Maghra and her children Haniwa (Nesta Cooper) and Kofun (Archie Madekwe).
Binge for the Strong Female Characters
Not only does SEE give us some fierce female characters but they also give us DIVERSITY. The character is Bow Lion is my favorite. She is fierce warrior and her graceful movements as a Shadow (a person who can go anywhere without being detected) are fascinating. It’s also nice to see a women of color as a thoughtful fighter, she often serves as a voice of reason to the emotional Kofun.
Maghra is another favorite character of mine. She is tough, loves her children and when the time was right stands up to the Witchfinder and makes him bow at her feet. Alfrie Woodard as Paris is another favorite character and a huge asset to this cast although she doesn’t have much to do. I’m also hoping we get into her background in Season 2 or that she has something different to do then to hobble behind Haniwa and Kofun.
Watch for Intrigue and Character Development
We get bits of pieces of the characters histories but I’m hoping that Season 2 will get into Baba Voss’ past as a child of slave traders. Paris mentions in a tender scene between the two that he was wild when she met him, full of pain and anger. The show reveals the brutality of the slaver life, and Baba Voss himself admits to his family that he tortured and sold innocent people as a way of life. Now that his brother has Haniwa, Season 2 should offer some deep insight into the people and the life that Baba left years before.
Watch for the Gorgeous sets
Need more reasons to binge SEE on Apple tv? How about because of the luscious sets? SEE was filmed around Vancouver Canada and it’s simply gorgeous. There is a scene where the characters come upon a festival that takes place in a decrepit amusement park and it so hauntingly beautiful. Give us more of these creepy sets!!
