Watchmen Episodes 1 – 4 – Tick Tock
Surprise! Ro and Kriss decided to review HBO's Watchmen. You're welcome. Let's just get this out of the way right now: HBO's Watchmen is proving how many Watchmen fanboys never actually comprehended what they were reading when Alan Moore and Dave Gibbson first released this comic. If you're feeling some kind of way over the racial and political themes on the show then you never really understood Watchmen to begin with.
The show is clearly slowly building towards something with multiple storylines having some overlap while appearing independent. We're not exactly sure how all the things are related but they clearly are. There is also some really great actresses and characters (we could watch Regina King and Jean Smart go back and forth for an entire episode). And the show is handling the balance of forging a new path while still paying homage and having connections to the original story.
We're doing these in batches. So this first review is for the first 4 episodes. The next will cover episodes 5 & 6 and then we'll end with the final 3 episodes. Give it a listen and let us know what you think.
