HBO's Watchmen. Who's watching?

Recommended Posts

Anyone here a fan of the comic? How do you feel the new HBO version is doing? I think it's an excellent imagining of that universe 34 years on.

I have a few friends pressuring me to watch it.  I'm a comic nerd and liked the movie, but I like to binge.  I'm going to wait for the season to end first. 


Also, I'm nervous with HBO after they cancelled Deadwood and Carnivale early.  I can't get my heart broken again

Never have had HBO and used to watch all of there series in hotels when I traveled.  I liked Rome enough to buy the DVD sets.

When you do watch it, keep in mind it follows the comic's events, not the movies'.

I haven't started watching it yet but have everything DVRed.  This was the one question I could not get people to answer.

It builds off the comic's timeline. They even flesh out the backstory of one character that wasn't done fully in the comic.

I've been watching it.  

 

I appreciate the unique storytelling techniques and I've enjoyed the show's complexity.  I thought Episode 6 where Sister Knight "re-lived" her grandfather's life with the pills was very clever.
