Favorite Watchmen Podcast

This is my first show with you guys. I very much enjoyed your coverage throughout the season. Excellent presentation of the episodes and discussion of theories swirling around this amazing show.

Even when I have disagreed with your take (Ep 7) I thought it was expertly presented and provided excellent discussion and thoughtful counterpoints to my thoughts and expectations for the show. Keep it up!

King Bee Skews Reviews

I am a big fan of the production and organized approach this podcast offers. There is a mountain of interesting discussion about the relatively undiscovered comic series “Watchmen.” All of the Main hosts and write-in contributors offer great insight into this alternate universe built by Marvel studios. HBO’s adaptation of the graphic novel is a densely compacted series rife with analogies and draws on a unique history of pre-existing canon. Without this podcast’s dutiful asides and explanations, I would be at a loss for the visual masterpiece that Lindelhof has presented in late 2019.

What is perhaps modern TV’s most poignant epic series available, Watchmen, uses a comic narrative adaption to comment on present day society and the dangers of inoculation and desensitization to violence perpetrated by an ambiguous race war in America. This podcast does so much that is right in highlighting nuance and criticism on Lindelhof’s all but perfect adaptation of a voluminous comic history.

In the late half of this podcast, the hosts’ Watchmen discussions suffer when King Bee delivers rather shallow and unwarranted commentary that resides in disgust and malformed subjective terror defines his tone and resignation towards Lindelhof’s series. His discrediting tone lends the listener an unnecessarily curt and dishonest representation of the full context that HBO’s the Watchmen series can fulfill.

The other main hosts of this show do well and good to move ahead throughout their podcasts/episodes despite unhelpful negativity coming from disaffected listeners. This rather democratic approach to podcast fan discussions has its merits, but I believe some of the inherent negative consequences of live feedback have drained commentator, King Bee of his effective resolve to deliver inspired commentary that supports the aims of this podcast.

That being said, opinion is the essence of podcast history, and I will not cease to follow this team because of one or two miscalculated episodes. In fact the miscalculations make this podcast more enjoyable and reinforce my own self-critical writing process because the spirit of dynamic discussion owes nothing to objectivity, especially if we are all here to talk about the story of a comic book adaptation by HBO.

I learned a lot and this podcast echoes my own emerging questions and assumptions to varying degrees of success, and I couldn’t be more satisfied. I use this podcast against the official HBO podcast to explore the vast Watchmen universe without an HBO-curated lens.
