Watchmen Season 1 Episode 1 – What Did You Think?!
Who watches the Watchmen? HBO hasn’t dropped its ratings numbers yet, but we suspect that the series premiere did quite well. The show is inspired by the original comic created by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. However, Damon Lindelof describes his take on the series as a “remix.” Did the first episode live up to your expectations? We want to know what the Superhero Hype community thinks about it! This post is a place for all of you to leave your own reviews, thoughts, or anything else you want to say about the show.
Intriguingly, the show opened with a real historical incident that still managed to evoke Superman’s origin. Young Will Reeves was one of the few to survive the Tulsa massacre in 1921. But how is he still alive in 2019? Louis Gossett Jr. is playing Old Will, and he not only knew about Detective Angela Abar/Sister Night (Regina King), he was also found near the body of someone close to Angela.
The events of the comic were referenced throughout the show. However, the most telling incident was the rain of the alien squids. If Ozymandias is believed to be dead, then who is carrying on his hoax? Meanwhile, Jeremy Irons hammed it up a bit as a character who is very likely to be Ozymandias/Adrian Veidt. He’s in seclusion for now, but how long will it be before the truth is revealed?
Watchmen airs Sunday nights on HBO.
