    I saw this first episode and it was great. I just think they need to be VERY careful because the monsters (white supremacist) seemed to be filmed in a way that made them sympathetic and cool. This is not a good thing. They need to shy away from filming them in that style.

    You just know old white dude is going to die if he's singing kumbaya with his african-american family. Masked hooded "hero" waltzing into neo-nazi trailer park with her badge out of sight and drags one of the locals into the trunk of her car without getting shot once. No young white "good guys" characters so far either: both "power rangers" lieutenant cops appear to be in their 50s. 7K Cattle Ranch compound had a plane, shielded .50cal technical, but didn't have any small arms to cover MG reload. Red called 7K shooter "coward" for taking suicide pill while they went full Guantanamo on another dude just earlier same day for much less than resisting arrest and armed assault on law enforcement officers. Police superintendent is driving alone in the middle of the night, in the midst of domestic terrorism resurgence that has a history of targeting PD members. Seems to be another trash series so far, just a TV show version of "In the Shadow of the Moon" movie.

    I don't know why these pop culture youtubers always claim that Ozymandias only attacked New York in the False Flag operation. The original makes it very clear he's hitting every important city on the planet with them, simultaneously. The whole plan simply wouldn't work if only the US gets attacked - it has to be a global threat to unify humanity.

    I love with the latin expression "Who watches the watchmen?". That it's become motto where the police answer "Nos custodiemus." (We will watch.). Making it clear that they will take justice in their own hands. Becoming in principle a mob of their own.

    Biggest easter egg in Ep1 = it's ok and cool to be an authoritarian... as long as you're a female POC. The racial politics was too obvious. People don't want to be beaten over the head with an agenda. Too bad... it could have been a fun show.

    Did no one pick up on Regina's character saying she could smell bleach when sniffing out supremacists?!? Clearly a brilliant and hilarious nod to Juicy Smollay's attack in Chicago! 😂😂😂

  57. Tara Walker

    Tara WalkerBulan Yang lalu

    @B Vines Yes, Smollett's attack WAS a hoax. That is why I found the humor in her bleach reference and am sure it was in reference to two random individuals walking around in the middle of the night with bleach and rope to pour on their victims, not referring to the show's perp's whiteness - that lacks originality. Don't get me wrong, the accusation wasn't funny, but I certainly wasn't expecting that reference.

  58. B Vines

    B VinesBulan Yang lalu

    I wouldn't say it was either brilliant nor hilarious. Smollet wasn't attacked. It was a hoax that he orchestrated. Plus, her line was more about how SURE she was that the guy she grabbed (in a very authoritarian manner) was a white supremacist. He's such a white supremacist that she "could smell bleach" (subtext: this guy is ALL about white). A white person talking about a POC in such a way, however, would have been frowned upon. #Hypocrisy Heavy-handed race politics will cause this show to end quickly unless they stop trying to beat people over the head with their preaching.

  81. B Vines

    B VinesBulan Yang lalu

    @CCH DZ Race and gender politics are ONLY important to one small segment of America, ie the progressive left "victims". And yet, we're beat over the head everyday with their (ostensibly, your) bullshit. Nobody is buying the "Conservatives are racists" bullshit anymore. Nor are they buying the LGBT{yadayadayada} shit either. You liberals tried too hard and you ultimately forced your hand. The rest of us are now calling your bluff. Examples: Ghostbusters reboot, Joker movie, Gatsby's horrific Netflix "show", Chapelle's Netflix show, etc. So yeah, if it's going to run under the banner of "Watchmen", it should at least keep it in that lane. But expecting me to support an authoritarian protagonist is stupid. Expecting me to support that character only BECAUSE it is a female POC is even worse. And expecting people to just stand by as they get beat over the head with inane SJW dogma is moronic.

  82. CCH DZ

    CCH DZBulan Yang lalu

    @B Vines lol so the sequel should stay between the bounds of the original? The source material dealt with the relevant politics of its time period. Right now race and gender politocs are huge, but a series as political as watchmen set in this era should ignore it and deal with something that isnt as relevant right now? No one said Roschach was a white supremacist, that just how the radical group took his message, as a means to justify their actions. But sure, the show should just deal with the politics you personaly like.

  83. B Vines

    B VinesBulan Yang lalu

    @CCH DZ The source material dealt with the politics of global war and the paranoid chaos that "Mutually Assured Destruction" breeds. It had nothing to do with race. This is 100% removed from the source material so comparisons are irrelevant. Rorschach wasn't a white supremacist nor was he an advocate for anything like it. And to take the Libertarian character from the original and turn his "legacy" into something like the kKk is moronic and obviously a move to inject racial politics into the existing story. Typical SJW tactic. Take something that doesn't have identitarian politics in it and cram it full of the shit.

  84. B Vines

    B VinesBulan Yang lalu

    @Javierm0n0 Because "white supremacists" are the current boogeyman for modern day "social justice warriors" and people who can't see past their own "victimhood". According to them, the kKk is around every corner just waiting to mess with EVERY POC in America. That shit hasn't been the case since the 60's. But the liberals keep trying to push their out-dated political agenda. Pretty much every new show has some sort of SJW agenda nowadays.

    Because some feel (whether sarcastically or not 😊) that this should have A SPOILER ALERT: Veidt's actually dead; Irons is playing Dr. Manhattan's approximation of him. * Dr. Manhattan can be in multiple places at once. * The building that collapsed on Mars is very similar to the one Irons is inhabiting. * The two servants attending to Irons are a reference to Dr. Manhattan's intention to create life himself, as expressed at the end of Watchmen (That's why the butler doesn't know the difference between a horseshoe and a knife - he's a flawed creation). *Irons appeared nude. Being nude wasn't Veidt's thing... It was Dr. Manhattan's (pun intended). He's Osterman pretending to be Veidt, maybe because he came to agree with him over time and needs his insight to avert the looming crisis. That's the twist. We don't have a Veidt to bail us out this time. We've only got Osterman playing at being Veidt.
