    Watchmen

    Getting a new series on HBO, with showrunner Damon Lindelof. I still don't trust him after Lost & Prometheus. His passionate letter to the fans yesterday explaining his love for the source material & how the show is going to be set in the Watchmen world in present time with new characters did nothing for my tempered approach to this.

    Loved the book HARD, tried to get into the movie a few times and it just got progressively worse on each viewing. Zero expectation that this TV version will be any better. Maybe a fresh approach without reference to the original is a good idea, maybe it'll just be another bloated confusing mess.

    I love the original Graphic Novel and i like the movie, i even have a Watchmen tattoo, you can say i'm a fan!

    I don't know what to think of this, at first i thought it could be similar to the "Before Watchmen" miniseries, but now it seems even the creators don't know what the project is about.
    I smell a train-wreck, of course i could be wrong (and i hope i am...), but this just seems like an unrelated series with the Watchmen name attached.

    I'm going to be wary about the series. I don't trust Damon Linedlof either. I have my copy of the graphic novel as it's one of my favorite purchases.

    Great now I kinda have to watch whether Damon fucks it up or not.

    I know this was shared over in the other thread (twice!) but worth sharing it here so we can keep this thread alive a little so we can keep spoilers out of the other one hopefully.

    Don Johnson looks good in this. Been getting a lot more high-profile stuff lately. Glad he's doing something a little more left-of-center than previous TV gigs he had.
