No show speaks to our time better than "Watchmen" with themes of police brutality and white supremacy set against the Tulsa Massacre.

Fans of Moore's book will not be disappointed, while a new generation not familiar with its characters or the story should be inspired too.

Watchmen centers Black trauma in a way few other shows have and follows the inherited pain of Black Americans through decades of oppression.
June 11, 2020
Showrunner Damon Lindelof has pulled off a thermo-dynamic miracle, not unlike turning lead into gold.

Watchmen puts disparate things next to each other and admirably eschews didacticism by asking us to decide the relationship between them....

Watchmen remains magnetic in the moment of watching it. The production values are sky-high, and the score by Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor is divine.
February 19, 2020
The most surprising thing after six episodes is how much the show comes to feel like a funhouse mirror reflection of our own world. The proportions are all wrong, but the underlying identity is still the same.

A fantastic entry into the world of "different superhero stuff". [Full review in Spanish].

Because Lindelof doesn't confuse fidelity with loyalty, and is not afraid to manifest his own contemporary voice, he finally manages to capture Moore's spirit. [Full Review in Spanish]

Watchmen is not just a deconstruction; it is a celebration of what superheroes can be, and you have to love comics to be able to create content like that.

There's a lot going on in Watchmen. Actually, there's too much, a surplus of narrative, too many three-minute set pieces that don't advance the story, and way, way too many flashbacks.
January 6, 2020
Watchmen encapsulates the weariness of Black America, our wounds healing just enough for the scabs to be torn off again.

December 23, 2019
I can't begin to go into the smart, mind-bending complications the show, created by Damon Lindelof, detonates. But it's an example of our current golden age of television.

Regina King is fantastic.

Damon Lindelof manages to make fit all the relevant pieces creating a work that gives us the feeling of completeness. [Full review in Spanish]

This show transcends more than time, it transcends boundaries, it breaks the nerd ceiling and transports people into the narrative just beyond Jupiter - and people are not scared whatsoever of the climate and new world.
December 19, 2019
By honoring the past, but moving the property forward, the new Watchmen, created by Damon Lindelof, became one of the year's best television series.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

It works perfectly, and presents a linear continuation of the world created by Moore and Gibbons.
