...is used as inspiration and to shape its sensibilities, rather than doing a 12-episode re-telling the story in the comic.

With the animated story and what not?

I didn't. I was curious. I wondered if it made it more layered and complex...or if it was just extra shit that only the diehard fans would really care about.

But I guess I'm not curious enough to sit down and set aside the 3 hours for it, though.

I guess I'm up for the show, though. Why not? I think the original source material and adaptation said more than enough, but meh, we'll see where else they can take it.

The best version of the movie is the director's cut.

didn't see there was one already here...

well, I was pleasantly surprised by that first ep...

I wasn't sure what I expected really....but, if I'm honest , I kinda went in giving it a little 'side eye' due to the Lindelof connection (my wife is STILL salty about Lost)....but then again, I ALSO KNEW Regina King was gonna do her thing, and she did NOT disappoint, so I was gonna watch just for her....

but yeah, that first episode has me intrigued....so I'm in, for now**

(**as I recall, LOST also had me intrigued at the start too, but then had to tap out of THAT after season 2 or 3 because I felt they were just winging it at that point....

so, we'll see how this Watchmen progresses...but, yeah, ep 1 has me interested in seeing whats coming next....

have you listened to
her stuff?

then watched in confusion as the show proceeded to not show any of it. Props for going with something different I guess (esp considering where fan culture is at right now), and the preview for the coming weeks looked good, but this ep didn't feel as satisfying as I hoped (though the Black Wall St opening was shattering). Regina King is the best as always tho

a) There was already a movie about the graphic novel,and so
OBVIOUSLY that isn't what they were going to do Lol. Did you
think they were going to make the movie that they already
made, but in the form of a TV show?

b) Ironically, episode 1 was MUCH more in the spirit of the
graphic novel than the movie was. Tone & essence.

I just made my wife watch the movie with me. The movie is enough, replace bomb with squid monster and that’ll about takes care of it. Not about to get into Black Freighter and comic book page symmetry.

Like OE said this is more like the graphic novel than the film was. And it feels like a natural progression from where that left off.
