This could be potentially cool, though it probably would be a prequel series. It wouldn't be the same without Manhattan and Rorschach

Unless they make one season and retell the comic. Its already episodic after all. Still, I'd rather cover new ground. I also wouldn't mind a prequel about the Minutemen. Different characters, and all kinds of potential for a big new story.

hope not but for me it would depend on the cast

I might be down to see "Watchmen" adapted into an HBO series if the entire 12 issue story arc was faithfully done, especially since the movie was just crunched together and left out very crucial elements.

However, if this proposed series is going to be a prequel like "Before Watchmen" or, I shudder at the thought, a sequel to the story, then I say nay. I say leave it the f*ck alone.

Frankly, I wouldn't watch a series without Doctor Manhattan, Rorschach, or at the very least Ozy. Those are the only characters who made the series worth a damn, imo.

I'm a bit torn. I've always been curious to see them show what happened after the end of the original comic and how the world reacted to what Ozy did. Problem is with that..Manhattan is off world and Rorshach is dead.

Yet I don't want merely a retelling of the story..the Watchmen movie did that just fine IMO. I don't really need to see it done again with different actors.

Seriously HBO if you want to adapt a gritty comic series then let me say two words: The Boys.

Impediment
I have every issue of The Boys.

An adaptation of The Boys would definitely have to be on HBO.

You guys have my interest. I'll have to check that one out

Surtur
Or hell I'd love to see Invincible on the small screen. You'd also need HBO for that given the massive amounts of gore.

Garth Ennis (Preacher) and Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan).

This title actually "out Preachers" Preacher with black humor.

Seriously.

It'd be hilarious to see this scene reimagined on-screen:

The only way i can see a prequel working is if it were a few episodes leading into the actual story. There's nothing worse than prequels.

What is sexually explicit to you?

showing penetration.


imo, simulated sex and any nudity that isn't full-frontal should be considered pg-13 material. You're crazy if you think 13yo's haven't seen breasts.

I waited until I was a consenting adult before seeing a pair of bare naked breasts.

So besides Simon Pegg, who would you guys get to play The Boys?

Silk Spectre has a nice ass, though. Who is the phucking phaggot now?

I found out today that this is being made by the guy who made The Leftovers. This is going to be phenomenal.

It's starting!

I'm three episodes away from finishing The Leftovers, and holy hell has it been a good ride. I'm sad it's ending, but this man helming Watchmen is the best pairing they could have made. He knows how to make layered and interesting characters and drama.

Also, it seems the Watchmen are set to join the comics DC universe in November in a huge event called Doomsday.
