See is a funny TV show, but not on purpose

There’s a scene in See I would bet everything in my wallet (seven dollars, three old MetroCards, and five half-used coffee rewards cards) that it’ll go viral. It’s the one where Jason Momoa’s character picks up a book for the first time. from https://www.theverge.com/2019/11/1/20942180/see-apple-tv-plus-review-streaming-jason-mamoahttps://cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/65605281/See_Unit_Photo_02.0.jpg
