WATCHMEN s01 (2019)

Mostly lives up to the impossible task of following on from a legendary piece of graphic fiction.

Takes up in the modern day, following the trajectory of the world that was created after Ozymandias teleported an engineered giant dimensional squid into New York to unite humanity against a perceived common extraterrestrial threat.

Yep, this is a continuation of the comics, not the Zack Snyder film adaptation – because while that is a tonally faithful translation of the incredibly precise graphic novel, there are key mechanical differences that are relevant here that land in spoiler territory.

But even in doing an excellent and clever job of expanding the world, it ultimately only manages to be something of a paler imitation of a superior story that was designed to intentionally be complete in and of itself.

Still, plenty to enjoy. A great modernised take on a classic, well executed social commentary and some good turns. Recommended.

  1. Pour moi dans Watchmen, que je n’ai pas eu le bonheur de pouvoir regarder, n’ayant pas HBO, donc c’est au travers des articles, photos, vidéos que j’ai suivi plus ou moins les séries, grâce à Jérémy dans cette Saison c’est Ozymandias qui a eu le plus grand rôle et quelle performance ❤️❤️
