    Watchmen - Season 1

    Watchmen - Season 1

    We discus the first (and possibly only?) season of Watchmen, the HBO show that show runner Damon Lindelof called a "remix" of the original graphic novel (which he had also called the greatest modern work of literature). The series takes place 34 years after the graphic novel, in a world beset by many of the same evils as our own.
    Light spoilers, so nothing major is given away, but probably a little bit more than the trailers. Forewarned is forearmed!
