It does get better as it goes on. It also becomes easier to just accept that blind people probably can't do half the things that you're seeing. So, gets better, and you'll settle more into the fiction. I've watched season one twice now and it was even better second time through.
Thanks for the review, Cas. I loved Season one! By far the best series on ATV IMO. This sounds like a promising start for Season two.
If you haven't SEEn SEE, do check it out. Although the show may not "Grab" you, it will slowly entice you into its world.
Sylvia Hoeks as the Queen is something to behold..
Only recently saw the first season and though its a little all over the place, it rather embraces its insanity and as a result is surprisingly compelling - Momoa is great value as a lead as always and Sylvia Hoeks as The Queen really steps up for the theatricality of the whole thing, especially in this opening episode.
Big Dave is obviously the primary attraction of this season but I'm more excited about the fact that Jonathan Tropper has taken the reigns as the showrunner - he was one of the creators and showrunners of Banshee and Warrior so he's got some real pedigree in contemporary action TV so hope he brings some of that to this...
Caught the opener of Sonar (at least that's what we call it in our household) season 2 last night. It has moments of breathless glory in fighting violence and gore but then does things that constantly made me raise my eyebrows again - ahem, the tunnel.
However, then you get the wonderful scenery, sets and intelligent thrilling drama to draw you back into monkey man walking and stalking Baba.
The Queen gets a bit shrill at times and I fear tinnitus may set in but she's so comically devious, I try to overlook it.
Some decent new characters with a kind of Little Finger and his beloved brother (yikes), one legged friend, and we get Hoon Lee (hopefully much more of him) and the former wrestler who I respect and enjoy with the gravitas can mange: not only in stature.
It's still a mental concept but I can't seem to stop watching.
If only Apple would stop pushing woke music redoes.
I cant in all honesty say that I was a fan of 'See' season one, but it looks like the producers have lifted their game for season 2 with more money spent,more apocalyptic vista and more Game of Thrones like battle scenes, which itself has some irony as like during GoT these battles could be fought during a pitch black moonless night too, as all the warriors are blind. Fortunately for fans of See we can actually see what's happening.
