A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Humans adapt to new conditions, but their drive to seek power and be violent never changes. If we don’t recycle, plastics and rubber will remain in landfills for centuries. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

Baba Voss is a strong leader, and can be violent. But he is also kind and protective of his community. Some villagers are loyal, while others are not. 

Violence

Violence is necessary evil to ensure survival. Bloody, brutal battles feature beheadings, stabbings, maulings, and other violent events. Weapons include axes, rakes, bludgeons, ropes, wild dogs, etc. 

Sex

Nudity and simulated sexual acts are visible. Childbirth is also shown, but not in graphic detail. 

Language

Curses ("bitch," "f--k") are audible. 

Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

It features lots of brutal violence, which ranges from people being stabbed, bludgeoned, and nearly beheaded with primitive weapons to being mauled by attack dogs. There is some nudity, simulated sex, and cursing includes words like "bitch" and "f--k." The show does contain pro-environmental, strong ecological messages.

What's the story?

SEE is a dystopian drama about a world in the future in which humans no longer have the sense of sight. A deadly virus outbreak in the 21st century left less than two million people alive, but without vision. Centuries later, they survive using new ways to build, hunt, communicate, and battle, and do not believe that their ancestors had once been able to see. Primitive factions arise, including the Alkeny, a community living on a mountain, led by Baba Voss (Jason Momoa). But after a pregnant woman named Maghra (Hera Hilmar), is taken in by the leader, their existence is threatened by the mystic Queen Kayne (Sylvia Hoeks), who sends witch seekers to destroy her and the Alekeny village. As they fight for survival, the danger against them increases after they discover that Maghra’s twins have the gift of sight.

Is it any good?

This series is a beautifully produced, well-scored, action-packed show that is both brutal and compelling. It effectively intertwines a story of primitive survival with a mythology-driven narrative thanks to characters like Queen Kayne and Paris, Alkeny’s wise medicine woman (played by Alfre Woodard). Meanwhile, the tension created by the cast’s lack of sight is purposeful and consistent, leaving viewers enthralled by how they live their lives, and willing to suspend their disbelief during those moments that seem a bit too incredible. It also presents a strong ecological message, as most of what survives from the 21st century comes in the form of plastic and non-biodegradable rubber. See is a series that you can truly sink your teeth into.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about what the world might look like hundreds of years from now. Will it be as uncivilized and warlike as many dystopian films and TV shows make it out to be? Why or why not?

  • In See, not having sight is a normal human trait. What are some of the specific ways people communicate and move as a result? Are there limitations to what they can do? How do they overcome them?
