What makes ‘See’ so special?
‘See’ was highly anticipated by the public and the critics alike to be a show that would be under the spotlight, no matter what. The lead role is played by superstar Jason Momoa, the storyline is also quite unique, and the fact that it was made by AppleTV also adds to the attention the show received. It was hoped that it would be a great opportunity for the streaming service to show its standards. The fact that in ‘See’, all characters are blind, and are stuck in that condition, creates an amazing range of possibilities for the show to be unique and exciting. The fact that most of the human race now lives without the sense of sight is what makes it really interesting.
It is easy to see why the plot was great. We, as humans beings, have a difficult time understanding and living with difference. The premise was really interesting but when it came out it did not live up to the expectations, especially for the critics. It seems like the perfect recipe for success, right? But things went out differently! Next paragraph, please!
Why was season 1 not as good as it should have been?
Let’s be honest. The show lost itself when it came back to the root of human extinction and started to make the audience watch it and think: What does it mean to live in a developed and futuristic world? What does it mean to be evolved then? Baba Voss (Jason Momoa) says in an episode that all of the development and change defended by Jerlamarel was the main reason why the world was destroyed.
Questioning things is nice, and making the audience think is even better, but it’s important to stick with the main characteristics of the plot. All of the excitement about the unique plot of the show went down the drain when it switched for this cliche storyline and questioning.
The first half of the season has the perfect timing and is faithful to the dystopian reality the world is going through. It is slow-paced and gives the needed time for the audience to understand what the show is about. The second half of the show is at a totally different pace. It’s rushed, with events happening simultaneously and much faster. Even Jerlamarel, a character that is tirelessly quoted in the first half of the season, lacks a lot of detailed explanation on his importance for the plot.
When will season 2 be released on AppleTV?
There’s still not a lot of information on that, but for sure after the summer of 2021. AppleTV hasn’t released an official date yet, but according to “Deadline”, the second season started being filmed in October of 2020 and it will finish filming in March of 2021. Without an exact date, ‘See’ leaves us free to, at least, speculate, what will happen in the upcoming season.
In a recent interview that Jason Momoa gave to “Metro.co.uk”, he said that there will be a new cast member. A little bit unusual. This new cast member is a dog, which Momoa discovered in the studio while they were filming. “I have a dog this year. This is the only spoiler I will give”, Momoa said.
There are a few changes that are also going to happen. “Hollywood Reporter”said that two of the directors from the first season, Francis Lawrence and Steven Knight, may not return for season 2. The website does not mention who is going to replace both of them. For this, we will have to wait!
The show will come back for sure, but we will have to wait to see what changes are gonna be made. Let us know in the comment section below what you think will happen in season 2!
