A God Walks into ABar Videos
"A God Walks Into Abar" delivers a magnificent, heart-wrenching story that's far more magical than any superpower. It's what some may call a thermodynamic miracle.
Using the meet-weird between Dr. Manhattan and Abar as the structural anchor for the episode provides for a fine union of form and content.
"A God Walks Into Abar" is essentially a love story. It's an ingeniously structured penultimate episode, brimming with genuine feeling while also setting up a tense finale.
Watching a black man about to be killed by white supremacists tell his love that she can't save him because it's already happened is heartbreaking and revelatory on a whole other level.
"A God Walked into Abar" handles Angela and Jon's love story incredibly well.
Yep, this episode is Damon Lindelof and company at their most swing-for-the-fences ambitious.
The episode ends with quite an emotional stinger. Also, do not forget that post-credit scene which sets up next week's finale.
As much as Watchmen is deconstructing the superhero genre, it's still coming down to good guys versus bad guys, though with this particular tale, the bad guys winning would not be shocking.
Watchmen raises the stakes by giving us a fascinating glimpse into how Doctor Manhattan perceives reality itself.
An expertly crafted piece of television that positions us in past and present simultaneously, while exploring what makes Dr. Manhattan human. A story of doomed romance, of sacrifice, and of what it feels like to remember falling in love.
It's the continuation of a conversation that creator Damon Lindelof has been having with his audience about time, love, and the connection between them for more than a decade.
