The series follows a chain of action and drama performed by a group of masked vigilantes. These characters are two outlaws who seem to have nostalgia through that leading graphic novel of the same name. This series creates a new path of its own and a path that looks quite distinctive.
A phenomenal cast, fantastic stunt choreography, and a societal and historically relevant narrative which is compelling enough to encourage more. While there may be commentary on The Comedian here, Watchmen on HBO is anything but a joke.
Watchmen reaffirms Damon Lindelof's stature as one of the greatest creators to have ever worked in television. Writers can spend their entire careers creating something that isn't half as special as even one of his shows; Lindelof has made three.
Overall, [Damon] Lindelof's Watchmen embraces the spirit of the original comic with its stylish cynicism while attempting to erect a new organizing principle all its own, which will prove controversial to some.
