Watchmen: See How They Fly

If there’s a theme at all here, I’d say it’s “No one is what they seem,” or at least damn few are. By the end of this, there are a few good guys left, and a lot of evil revealed, and a good bit of collateral damage.

Watchmen: A God Walks Into A Bar

   With the big surprise at the end of last episode, there are a lot of questions. So even though there’s only one more episode to go, they take most of this one to explain some backstory among several of the major characters.

Watchmen: An Almost Religious Awe

    We’ve gotten to the last third of season one of Watchmen, and things are getting stranger and stranger. There’s been an origin for Hooded Justice, which never happened in the original comics, some fleshing out of the elements in their modern world, and a lot of twists and turns.

Watchmen: This Extraordinary Being

  They’ve done some good worldbuilding and storytelling in this series. They touch on some things from the original comics, less so the movie, and develop a lot of good new stuff. Now, they combine both those things, as we learn a lot about a character from the comics whose story was never really told in detail.

Watchmen: Little Fear of Lightning

Wade Tillman, the masked cop Looking Glass, is one of the most interesting. I admit to some bias, as he’s apparently loosely based on the Question/Rorschach, the Question being a favorite of mine, and his southern delivery with a keen mind behind it reminds me a lot of Eugene from The Walking Dead, another show I very much enjoy.

Watchmen: She Was Killed By Space Junk

Laurie Blake, the second Silk Spectre, has gone through a lot of changes since the events of the Watchmen graphic novel (or movie if you prefer). She’s the central figure of this episode, played by Jean Smart. Smart was recently seen in Fox’s incredibly odd Legion show, so she joins the ever-growing list of actors who have played characters for both Marvel and DC.
