Brief Synopsis:
See is a criminally underseen AppleTV series, one of the more interesting and fleshed out science fiction stories I've seen recently.

I always though that the production was so strong on the show that it would've made a great movie, so I'm playing with that concept. Also, there was a bit of a stylistic shift between the first and second seasons, where a lot of very abstract ideas got sort of left behind in favor of a more action/adventure heavy show. Doing a fanedit of the first season in movie form can help line it up with the style of the rest of the show.
Intention:
Cut the first half of season 1 of See into a theatrical film.

Cuts and Additions:
- Cut the first four episodes (and a bit of 5) into a theatrically viable film under 2 and a half hours.
- Focus on the characters and action/adventure aspects.
- Remove some of the more abstract and strange concepts that don't carry over into the second and third seasons.
- Make the story and concepts digestible to newcomers of the show.

As I have enjoyed all the Spence edits I have watched this one made it much easier for me to watch See. Why well I guess it was a little to esoteric for my feeble mind. My biggest grip has nothing to do with the edit. As I said I was able to get through this show because of the edit. It made so many things much easier to understand. My only gripe is watch people pretending to be blind and doing a lousy job of it. Be that as it may I will give this a 4 out of 5 popcorns on my scale. I always look forward to a Spence edit and will continue to do so.

I enjoyed this edit! The first half is a slow burn as the setting and characters are introduced, and I'll admit: It wasn't riveting, but it did keep me interested. By the halfway mark the story had found its feet and I was more strongly engaged with the characters. By the 3/4 mark the stakes were well-established, and I was locked in.

As this was a major edit in terms of material removed, the editor clearly had to walk a tightrope to retain all of the critical elements. I feel they were largely successful in this, though there were some moments where I felt I was missing something, so I've rated Narrative a little lower.

As for the technical stuff, I found absolutely no issues. All cuts and audio transitions were seamless for me.

Watch it for:

* An interesting take on post-apocalypse humanity that feels fresh.
* Strong performances by some lesser-known actors (Alfre was good, but also a little wasted, in my opinion).
* A reserved but impressively physical performance by Momoa, with some nice echos of his turn in Dune.
