Damon Lindelof, I think his Lost episodes are OK, better than episodes written by some other person lo

I think Lindelof is good at creating mainframe of storyline. He knows how to play the long game but got problem sticking the landing. Heard he was exceptional great at HBO's The Leftover. He is not as bad as Nic Pizzolatto who only did good on True Detective season one. The rest can close shop addy...

Really interested to see what they have in store for Watchmen. GoT is ending, Watchmen is consider one of HBO next big series right?

Totally liking the uncharted territory. Giddy over the closing shot.

Fingers crossed the end product lives up to marketing hype.

So far so good. It has little trinkets that will make book readers happy. At this point you can't tell who is the "bad" bad guy yet. I'm intrigued with the world building and of course it won't be Watchmen if it doesn't involve a murder mystery.

I never watch the movie or read the comic.
But, man, that was a good pilot.
From the massacre in the opening scene to the surprising last 2 minutes, there is very little thing to dislike about this show yet.
Bad guys vs Good guys conflict is well executed.
It is not Damon Lidelof's show if there is nothing to speculate. I like all the mysteries/conspiracies in the background.
Characters do appear to be interesting.
I just hope it does not go downhill from here.

Loving the new cynical Silk Spectre, she has shades of Comedian. An apt character progression. The music scoring roots back to the good old days of NIN. Reznor and Atticus still a force to reckon with.
