Ep. 39 A Review Of "See," Apple TV Plus' First Original Series

On this week's episode of Kickin' & Streamin' Podcast, Graham & Jocelyn review Apple TV Plus' first original series "SEE," starring Jason Momoa, Sylvia Hoeks, Alfre Woodard, Hera Hilmar, and Christian Camargo. The series is set in a post-apocalyptic dystopia some two-hundred years after the world population was decimated by a virus which left the few survivors affected by blindness. Jason Momoa is the leader of a small tribe and the stepfather to two children who were born with the gift of sight in a world where the ability to see is considered heresy. Jocelyn begins by saying how she likes the premise of show and that series is simply watchable, although with a lot of flaws. Jocelyn also praises the photography, scenery, and locations depicted in the series, and Graham found it refreshing to see a post-apocalyptic world which is not a depiction of the result utter nuclear devastation. Graham & Jocelyn posited the series could potentially become better since only 3 out of 8 episodes are currently available. However, the three available episodes seem to concentrate more on life at the present without offering some glimpses into the past for context. Jocelyn points out the fact that two-hundred years of blindness seemed too recent for society to have lost knowledge of braille system, almost as though blindness never existed before the apocalyptic events which left the current world in the dark. The two co-host questioned the almost perfect sense of fashion and color picking of a society unable to see colors and a number of other seeming gaffes which the series production seemed to have overlooked. The pair also discussed the cast, both of them admitting they knew very little about most of the cast, except for Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard. Jocelyn thinks the Sylvia Hoeks looked and has a familiar face, but could not remember from where, or what movie or series she's seen the actress before. Graham also wondered about who actor Christian Camargo was and later realized the actor had a stint in the now defunct soap opera The Guiding Light. Jocelyn & Graham praised actress Nesta Cooper's performance as Haniwa, and made fun of the seeming incompetence and lackluster attitude of the character of Kofun, played by actor Archie Madweke.  We hope you like this episode and if you do like our podcast please subscribe and don't forget to recommend it to your friends.
