Critics Consensus

Though it's capable cast is clearly game, an over-reliance on gore and a grimly -- and at times comically -- convoluted narrative blurs See's boldvision.

Critic Reviews for See Season 1

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (18)

As a piece of throwaway fantasy escapism, See offers a diverting off-road adventure, though it is aimed at adults. One imagines it would have been suitable for the family were it not for the unnecessary inclusion of graphic violence and swearing.

Apr 10, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Cool idea. But the story doesn't gel well, and the video-game-like combat sequences can be exhausting.

Nov 1, 2019 | Full Review…

Francis Lawrence helps create a compelling, lengthy, and somewhat different melee.

Oct 28, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

See sometimes feels like a concept and some characters were thrown on a whiteboard but no one figured out how to use them to tell an engaging story.

Oct 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Care was taken in the hiring of performers and consultants to make the presentation of blindness convincing. But no one seems to have done the more difficult, and boring, work of really thinking through how to make the premise convincing onscreen.

Nov 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Its production, ambitions and incestual fixations are at par with Game of Thrones. Yet, it lacks the rich world-building, character-focused storytelling or vision to make it great.

Jul 23, 2020 | Full Review…

Though Apple TV+'s See started off on rocky footing, I guarantee you'll be swept away by the series if you give it a chance.

Mar 24, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

[T]here's a continually nagging feeling that these expansions are accidental saving graces, allowing air to peek out from a place of suffocated and rotted potential.

Jan 19, 2020 | Full Review…

'See' is a visually spectacular and argumentatively solvent series that also falls into redundancies. [Full review in Spanish]

Dec 20, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A few storytelling shortcuts aside, See is an entertaining post-Thrones watch. I've certainly seen worse.

Nov 5, 2019 | Full Review…

See is an overall pleasant viewing experience that asks profound questions about humanity's connection to Earth.

Nov 5, 2019 | Full Review…

However, with infectious characters now developed (Show leader Jason Momoa can already, proudly boast about the cool and rugged Baba Voss in his own portfolio) in an unpredictable story, See has the hope to evolve into something very unique indeed.

    Such a great premise and the acting for every character is fantastic! Queen Kane is played flawlessly. The cinematography is outstanding! An amazing world to dive into.

    Due to Rotten Tomatoes poorly constructed code, with no avenue for paragraphs or any other structure, I will drop a * for each paragraph ... makes it easier to read. *See, AppleTVs offering. *Once again, paid reviewers dont have a clue of the reality of what they are watching. They operate only from the greed that a poor review equals clickbait. *See has a fascinating premise that is unique, no question. The real challenge is for the actors and director to fully embrace blindness in every action, every battle, every camera angle. The premise forces a new way to extract meaning for the audience, a different way to invest in the characters and their goals. Using British Columbia's coastal forests is a good choice for this world. The land is unforgiving, foreboding and a natural fit for the hard living of its inhabitants. *The acting all around is good; Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard are a true tour de force and the cornerstone of the group. Hera Hilmar backs this up with a solid handle on her huge character arc from young girl to mother and moving into being apparent royalty in this very unforgiving, unlikable world. Nesta Cooper also does well to show the complexity of her Characters position and we can hope that future seasons will prove her journey as promised. The one odd choice is the son played by Archie Madekwe. His skills are thin and I just didnt believe him. I can literally see him spouting lines like one would find in a Youtube indie film, amateur at best. * The real negative in all of this is the writing, it relies partly on dialogue language games not unlike Cloud Atlas, but too often fails by its reliance on staying within the trope, and feeling forced to dialogue that which we can figure out for ourselves. The writer is showing their fear of quiet complexity and an inability to allow simple assumption ... the failure of a writer not ready for the big time. * It is violent, harsh and chock full of gore ... but 'real' reviewers seem to live in a world where they can 'prefer' one violence over another. Vikings is far harsher, and often more gratuitious. In See inhabitants very survival depends on making very real decisions. To live means to stay alive without the hierarchical political back story demanding violent ends. *Season 2 is promised, but stalled due to Covid. I for one will wait and continue on this journey, because unlike paid reviewers ... I'm enjoying the ride.

    I absolutely love this show!!!!! I cant wait for it to return. Its so different from other shows and has such an amazing cast. I cant believe the rating on here (Rotten Tom) is so low of a number. But I see the audience rating is at 85% which tells you right there that this is a fabulous show. Please make more seasons. I purchased Apple TV just for this show. Its a SUPER, AMAZING, EYE-OPENING, COOL, CRAZY, MASTERPIECE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I couldn't feel any sense of purpose from any of the character except for Baba Voss and the queen. Also there are so many logic flaws to how this world works (main reason for the show's awfulness). And the two characters who can see; they are less capabled compared to those who cannot see, which is sad. Originally I was going to rate this show as bad. Then I found out AppleTV paid 15 millions per episode. So now I have to rate it as one of the worst shows in Apple's lineup. If I were Apple, I'd cancel the second season and give 3 other new shows a chance (that's how Amazon studio became successful--they kept buying 1 season shows until they found the good ones). The only good thing from this show is the righting scenes, though they're few and far in between. So I added 1 star to the rating.

    The series is beautifully filmed and the acting isn't bad, but there is some major glaring problems for me as I watched it. Can someone please explain to me why, in a world with no sight, a queen with a normally shaved head would feel the need to put on a wig and a crown to address her (also blind) people? Not to mention the absurdity of a bunch of blind warriors riding horses around the woods! This series just had to many insane things to be ignored while watching.

    Loved it binged watched it in two days great concept great attire line can't wait for season 2

    El principal argumento de la serie seguro que no es la primera serie que lo ejecuta pero se siente muy original, este tipo de papeles son los perfectos para Jason Momoa, y todos su elenco cumple muy bien con su personaje.
  • Jan 31, 2021
    The critics are wrong here... this might be my favorite show from all of last year. The filming is absolutely beautiful, the characters are exciting, and the whole idea is incredibly thought-provoking. Best of all, SEE is mind-blowingly creative. The world they created for us is expansive, original, and deeply textured. I've never disagreed more with a critical reception. Honestly, If some of the show's premises stretch their narrow-minded credulity... welcome to television, assholes.
  • Jan 30, 2021
    This show is utterly bizarre. And it might be kind of terrible? But I keep watching it anyway because I have no idea what's happening, it looks great, and I like Jason Momoa.
  • Jan 27, 2021
    Better than the critics ratings. If you can get past the fact that the blind move around much better than is credible, there is good action and good emotion in this series. It also makes you appreciate sight in ways I could not have before.
