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.

Watchmen encapsulates the weariness of Black America, our wounds healing just enough for the scabs to be torn off again.

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.

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

Lindelof has turned it into a stunningly cinematic look at white supremacy, policing and race in the US. Watchmen is mystifying but hugely entertaining, if deeply troubling.
December 17, 2019
An inventive and complex series. [Full Review in Spanish]
December 17, 2019
Never did I think a show that discusses inter-dimensional squid-beings would also create poignant commentary about America's violent racist history and how that trauma is carried on through generations.

On a technical level it also leaves much to be desired. [Full review in Spanish]
December 6, 2019
I think the lead, Regina King, is one of the finest of American actors...
December 3, 2019
In Watchmen, blackness is the root of the story, as well as its underlying purpose: it's a show about the potential for pop culture to treat black identity as a default...
December 2, 2019
Watchmen is deeply steeped in black history, existential musings, politics, and otherworldliness, each scene containing a plethora of references/odes to the original.
