Jesus wasn't a white supremacist, but the Klan wears crosses.

Lol it's not even trying to be subtle. Trailer park white people are behind White Supremacist gangs that are at war with the black police in small town america. This is what a hollywood privileged writers interpretation of middle america looks like.

Looks like this is going about how I thought after reading the premise.

From what I have read, it is a re-imagining.

Basically a black chick cop becomes a vigilante to fight white supremacist Rorshachs.

But it has some characters from the comics.




This isn’t what I signed up for.

I’ll give it my three episode minimum however.

Neither were political.

There wasn’t anything political about either one’s actions in the comic.

So maybe the black guy at end turned into a black racist cause of what they did to his family as a kid?

So its black racists and white racists.

But its gotta be more to it than that to get dr manhattan involved again and ozymandias

Do I have to see the movie first to understand the show?

what the frick is Red Ferdation?

Or is my hearing that bad?

This has started out like a turd, but since its Lindelof, Im not surprised and expect it to get only worse from here.

It’s Lindelof you’ll get all the nuance you want and then some.

The show has nothing to do with the comic, the movie, or the established universe.

Just says "Watchmen" in the title.

It is a show about evil white supremacists fighting saintly black cops.

That's it.
