Sight is the enemy in the first trailer for See, Jason Momoa’s Apple TV+ series

SEE – Official Trailer | Apple TV+

Apple has released the first trailer for See, its upcoming Apple TV+ series set in a post-apocalyptic world where humanity has lost the sense of sight.

The original series stars Jason Momoa, and the Aquaman and Game of Thrones actor features prominently in the first trailer for the show, which introduces a world where nature has reclaimed the environment and the loss of sight has returned humanity to tribal groups that must hunt and forage to survive.

When Momoa discovers that his children have been born able to see, it sets off an adventure that has him and his allies fighting to keep the children safe from those who consider sight a curse and fear its return to future generations.

The series’ trailer is appropriately epic, teasing a wide-ranging, cinematic journey for Momoa and the supporting cast that — hopefully — also explores how human civilization is able to rebuild (both physically and philosophically) without the sense of sight.

Expected to be among the first shows to debut on Apple TV+, See also stars Luke Cage actress Alfre Woodard, and is based on a script penned by Locke and Eastern Promises screenwriter Steven Knight. The series is directed by I Am Legend and Hunger Games franchise filmmaker Francis Lawrence (who’s no stranger to post-apocalyptic movies), and reportedly has a price tag of nearly $15 million per episode — putting it on par with the production costs of the final season of Game of Thrones.

Apple TV+ has been highly anticipated since its official unveiling at Apple’s Showtime event in MarchSee will be one of the streaming service’s leadoff shows, alongside other star-studded fare like The Morning Show, which goes behind the scenes of a morning talk show and stars A-list actors including Steve Carell, Jennifer Aniston, and Reese Witherspoon.

Perhaps just as big as the first look at See, Apple also revealed the official release date of Apple TV+ — November 1 — as well as a price point of a surprisingly low $5 per month.

This mirrors the price Apple originally wanted to attach to its music-streaming service, Apple Music, but the company was reportedly unable to ink a deal with major music studios for such a low price. With Apple TV+, Apple is making its own content, so the company can set its own pricing.

See and the rest of the projects included in Apple’s launch-day offerings on Apple TV+ are expected to premiere as part of the service’s launch on November 1.

Six things we’ve learned so far from MLS Season Pass on Apple TV
MLS Season Pass on Apple TV.

There's light at the end of the tunnel that is the 2023 MLS season. And that tunnel looks different than in previous years, for so many reasons. Chief among them is that domestic streaming rights shifted from ESPN+ to MLS Season Pass on Apple TV. That's a big deal, not because ESPN+ was doing a particularly bad job, but because it made it simple to watch every match.

But the metaphorical reality distortion field that surrounds Apple also happens to, at times, be true. It's evident in the products, and it's also apparent in the services.

What is Google TV? Here’s everything you need to know
Google TV user interface.

Much like our smartphones, tablets and computers, our smart TVs and streaming devices are powered by cutting-edge operating systems that control everything from the look and feel of your device’s menus and navigation to more unique features. That inlcudes what kind of content (apps and games) your TV will support and whether or not you'll be able to "cast" photos and videos to your new OLED using your iPhone or Android device. Every web-connected A/V peripheral has some kind of OS working behind the scenes, and the one we’ll be focusing on today is called Google TV.

Google TV goes toe-to-toe with other OS platforms, including Apple's tvOS, Amazon's Fire TV, and Roku's titular OS. Is it better than the rest? Let's unpack Google's foray into TV smartness to find out!

LG’s M-Series Wireless OLED TV is the future we need
Lg M-Series OLED

While LG has a solid track record of bringing its innovative tech to market so folks can actually buy it, a lot of what we see at CES is vaporware. This stuff is exciting to see amid the mayhem of the world’s biggest tech show, but then, all too often -- poof -- it’s gone, never to be seen again. That being the case, I tend to hold my excitement at bay until a product is in my hands for review.

And so I must confess, I forgot all about the M–Series wireless TV that LG showed me at CES earlier this year. That was a mistake because the wireless signal transmission LG has cooked up for its new TV series has broad implications for the future of TV, and we should be talking about it.
