- Apple TV+ original See premiered in the UK last night.
- Reports suggest that contrary to some family friendly rumors, See is littered with raw violence and sexual scenes.
- Dispels previous reports Apple was leaning towards "family friendly" shows.
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.
Before Apple TV+ was official, there were a lot of rumors and reporting that Apple was strictly focusing on 'family-friendly' content and telling producers to avoid adult scenes depicting sex and violence.
As reported by Sigmund Judge of Screentimes.net, who attended a screening of the first episode, Apple TV+'s premier show 'SEE' does not shy away from depicting adult themes in any way, and the events of the episode make a big statement that the rumors were simply incorrect.
SEE's first episode will include several blood-splattered fights and masturbation scenes. We aren't spoiling plot details but the first episode includes a lot of mass fighting, gore, and blood.
Sigmund Judge seemed thoroughly impressed with the first episode of the series, taking to Twitter after the premiere:
Users responding to the revelation expressed their own relief that Apple's TV+ offerings weren't too safe, one tweet noting:
I'm glad to hear that. While I'm not a fan of gratuitous violence, I did have fears that Apple's TV offerings might be too PG rated and too safe. Happy that's not the case.
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.
