The UK premiere of Apple TV+ show See (Jason Momoa) has reportedly laid to rest any rumors that Apple may have been planning to focus on family friendly content for its streaming service.
Sigmund Judge seemed thoroughly impressed with the first episode of the series, taking to Twitter after the premiere:
Will go into more depth soon with my @screentimesnet article. First thought: Wow. If Apple had lines that couldn’t be crossed they weren’t on display in ep one of @SEEofficial. My chest still hurts from some of those kills. Visceral, raw, beautifuly shot and incredibly well done!Will go into more depth soon with my @screentimesnet article. First thought: Wow.

Users responding to the revelation expressed their own relief that Apple's TV+ offerings weren't too safe, one tweet noting:
The report also claims that the violence and sexual scenes were not merely gratuitous, but that they fit well within the plot of the story, helping to add character development and personality.
See stars Jason Momoa and is set in a distant, dystopian future where a deadly virus either killed off most of earth's population, and blinded the rest. Momoa plays Baba Voss, who fathers two twins born with the mythical ability of sight. The show tracks his journey to protect his tribe and his children from a powerful queen.
Apple TV+ launches on November 1 at the price of $4.99 a month, but anyone who buys an iPhone, iPad, iPod, Mac or Apple TV will get a year's subscription for free.
