The first episode of HBO’s Watchmen series aired last night and it was awesome and it dealt with some hard topics! I loved what writer and creator Damon Lindelof has done with this incredible new show and the story that he is telling us, which is set years after the events of the novel by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.
This is just the start of one incredible show and we have a new trailer here that shows us what we can expect in the coming months and it teases some twists and turns that will be happening in the show. If you haven’t watched the first episode of the show yet, DO NOT want to watch this trailer until after you have.
The story for the show is set in an alternate history where masked vigilantes are marked as outlaws. It includes the nostalgia of the original graphic novel while trying to break a new story of its own. This show did an awesome job of doing that. The first episode totally hooked me up and I am sure this will be one amazing show.
The cast includes Regina King, Don Johnson, Jean Smart, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Hong Chau, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, and James Wolk.
