Watchmen

Post by Grandpa's Spells »

I was hopeful but not optimistic with how they were approaching this, but they did a terrific job IMO. To the extent that you can avoid spoilers, it’s very worthwhile.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

I was working on a post about this so you beat me to it. I have been blown away by this series. The finale was last night...didn't watch it, but I will tonight. I'm fucking hypnotized by the whole thing. Finally something I can't ridicule Spells about except his ambiguous sexual orientation.

The finale did not disappoint. They could end it there and all signs point to they might just do that.

I got very bad vibes from the first episode. Are you saying it's worth investing in?

Mak, you will not be disappointed...yes, there's some heavy racial shit but the storytelling is brilliant.
