Cant wait! I love Jeremy Irons.

I’m a Watchmen purist. The only Watchmen that I’ll ever approve of is the original Alan Moore series.

Can’t happen soon enough. Would love to see some kind of trailer.

I’m beyond excited about it. But I think Damon Lindelof is clearly a masochist. Because there is literally nothing he and his team could do that won’t piss off a bunch of the fanpeople. I love Lindelof and am excited to see how he approaches the work. But when someone as kind as @HubCityQuestion is willing to dismiss your work without even seeing it, you are climbing uphill. Fortunately, Lindelof is a seasoned veteran at fan scrutiny. I think I’m going to love the show. But I am weary of the fan backlash that will inevitably ensue.

I love both the comic and the movie but I’m a little weary about the tv show judging by the trailer. However I remain causally optimistic

To say I’m excited is a terribly drastic understatement. :slight_smile:
