  1. Well….now I’m torn, and that’s all because of your review😂😂 I had no real intention of watching this as I wasn’t particularly fond of the movie (as I mentioned last week), but having read this I can only say that I am at least intrigued. You certainly have a way of convincing people to watch something😅😅 And since I have a vacation anyway, I might spend some time with it 😊 Great post!

    1. Hahaahahaha mission accomplished! 😀 I think there might be plenty to enjoy in this one and if you do give it a try, I hope that your experience with it will be superior to the movie! 😉 Thanks for checking this out and here’s hoping you’ll hop onto this bandwagon soon. 😉

  2. Very glad to hear you enjoyed this one. Sounds like it worked much better than the comic follow-on you recently reviewed. If I were still a regular TV watcher and had access to it I might just check it out. Nicely reviewed, Lashaan.

    1. Yep. It’s definitely better than Doomsday Clock Part 1 (currently finishing up Part 2 to really conclude if it’s an average or decent story though). I could recommend this series even to those who never read the comics or don’t care for it too. There’s so much more to it than just “superheroes”. Wish you could have had the chance to try it out though. I think you’d have appreciated the story a lot. Thanks for the kind words, my friend! 🙂

  3. Fantastic review, Lashaan! 😀 I decided that I like your gushing reviews the most – the enthusiasm is contagious 😉 You need to work on those thrashing reviews, though… 😂😂 As for the Watchmen TV series, you’ve sold it so well I’m inclined to try. And I do hope that at least here Jeremy Irons overcomes his fantasy/SF curse of very baaaad movies and even worse roles 😂😂😂

    1. Thanks, Ola!!!! I’m glad that this will have given you the necessary push to give the show a try. I do hope that it will surprise you in a good way and I look forward to hearing about your thoughts on it, even if it ends up being an abomination to you! 😛 As for Irons… Yep.. hahahaahah He did give us an interesting Alfred though! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 But I think you’ll appreciate his character here a lot. 😀

  4. I remember enjoying the movie when it first came out, but that was before I read the graphic novel. Haven’t watched it since, not because it changed my perspective, but because I was more into comics than movies at the time. So I’m not sure how I’d feel about it after reading the original masterpiece.

    I’m not sure if I’ll ever find the time to watch this miniseries (It’s taken me 4 weeks to get 3 episodes into The Witcher). But I’m glad to hear that this one is good.

    1. If you ever want to re-watch Snyder’s movie, I recommend his ultimate cut (with the included animated sequences within the movie) to get the man’s full vision of his adaptation.

      Ahh, yes. It’s why I’m also watching more movies than shows in general. At least now you know what you could check out if you suddenly have more time for a TV series. Thanks for reading! 🙂

  5. Mmh, I watched the movie (or half of it, I can’t even remember 😂) and wasn’t really excited about it, but now your review makes me curious to try it again, or to watch this mini-series ! Maybe I should give Watchmen another try 😁 Thanks for sharing Lashaan!

  6. Amazing review as always! I also loved the show. Completely agree with you on how the showrunners made it as accessible as possible to people who hadn’t read Alan Moore’s work, but at the same time providing so many easter eggs for long-time fans!

  7. Awesome review Lashaan and glad you enjoyed the series…or mini-series as it became. Although I think things became a but muddled towards the end I thought it was generally great – Regina King was a brilliant lead and Jeremy Irons as reliable as ever (man, I really wanted to see more of his Alfred in the DCEU…but with Ben Affleck returning, who knows?).

    I totally agree about what you say regarding the accessibility of the series and the laudable efforts made to make it coherent for the uninitiated whilst infusing all of the familiar Watchmen elements that fans know and love. I do feel there’s more story to tell though and would welcome further seasons so long as the quality is there.

    1. Thanks, man! I’m glad that it still worked for you too despite those pacing issues you ran into, my friend. There’s so much potential for this Watchmen TV series universe, honestly. It would be a mistake for them to not find someone interested in directing another season even if it means new cast, new story, new direction!

      Same, man. Hopefully we get a couple of sneaky sequences with him as Alfred in The Flash movie! It would be a fantastic final farewell. Especially if it is all in the hopes of creating a Flashpoint movie.
