See The Watchmen On HBO Free All Weekend Long
If you haven't seen The Watchmen on HBO, boy, are you in luck!
All weekend long, HBO has been offering this crime thriller for free. I remember when I first watched The Watchmen. From the very first few minutes of the very first episode, I was intrigued.
Don't worry, there aren't any spoiler alerts here. Here are some things I recommend you look out for, though.
- Eggs: There is something special about eggs that is most noticeable in Episode #1 and the final two episodes.
- The color Blue: Blue is supposed to represent "truth", "trust" and "faith".
- Religious references: I wonder if The Watchmen is a nod to The Watchtower, which is the name of a religious magazine. One of the character's origins deals with The WatchtowerSquid: There will be LOTS of squid, that's all I'm going to say.
Here are some things that left me with questions:
- I still do not understand the character of Lady Trieu.
- Is Agent Blake a "good guy" or a "bad guy"?
- How did Angela let herself get "fooled" by ____? (no spoilers)
- What is up with all the time travel?!
In conclusion, I was so confused about everything with the Ozymandias and Dr. Manhattan storyline that I just gave up. I will have to rewatch The Watchmen. Good thing it's free on HBO!
