A blind man builds a raft (See on Apple TV+)

It's very unlikely that a blind man can build a sturdy raft with mast and sail… even if that man is Jason Momoa

But it does make for a good 'Seinfeld' type of discussion. George would have seen it and it goes from there..

Lol. IMDB was asking why their costumes are so intricate if everyone's blind. Apple really thinks highly of us as an audience.

OMG, DUDE... don't get me started on this! I've been looking for somewhere to vent about this Apple TV show that I really want to like, but I seriously can't get over this as well as other strange oversights...

I very badly want to like this show, but so many things just don't work with the premise of a "civilization" of the blind set up the way they have it. It feels almost like they misapplied their Mcguffin.

"Misapplied Mcguffin"

Good name for a band.

Thing is, the raft looks like it's delivered straight from a factory

Show works better if you turn off video and just watch with audio only.















Even better if you turn off sound too.

When a sense is taken away, other senses evolve. Who knows what could happen after decades of blindness. We are seeing this from the stand point of sighted people.

I think the only thing that will make me continue out this series is the fact that it's listed as Sci-Fi and it's basically Fantasy.

My mind will still struggle, but I'll try to immerse myself in the story and the characters to SEE how it all plays out.

Works for LOTR, that's all you can do.
