There is a lot interesting about this show. Unfortunately as soon as I started watching they announced that it was going to be a single stand alone one season show with just 9 episodes. As a kid growing up in the 80’s the watchmen was my favorite comic book. I don’t think I got all the adult themes so I’m confused as to why. The movie was completely unwatchable even casting one of my favorite actors Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Damon Lindelof seems like the ideal guy to pair with this comic and the creative genius of Alan Moore. Really in a lot of ways it’s a match made in heaven.

Now the cons. This show has a lot of the leftovers in it and in a lot of ways feels more like a spinoff of the leftovers than it does the watchmen.There isn’t that much super hero stuff and most of the characters are basically missing. The show is a spin off in that it takes place in the world of the watchman comic and that’s kind of where it ends. There is Dr. Manhattan. But was he really your favorite character in the comic book?

The pros. The concept is interesting and compelling. The show takes place in Telsa. The location of the race riots of 1912. Unarguably the worst in the history of America. Basically the KKK went full out destruction killing and destroying the prosperous African American community in the area that never recovered.  Black Wall Street was put to an end.
