It was just over a month ago when we shared what seemed to be the final trailer for the “Watchmen” show that begins its first season tonight on HBO and if you are still a bit in the dark about it just click HERE to get yourself up to speed. The new series makes its debut on the Premium Cable Channel tonight so if you don’t have it you are out of luck. Time to kiss up to a friend with access on their Roku or sign up via your providers. Here is the Official Poster, premise and casting.
The Premise: Watchmen is set in “an alternate history where ‘superheroes’ are treated as outlaws” and “embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own.”
The Cast and Characters:
Regina King as Angela Abraham
Don Johnson as Chief Judd
Tim Blake Nelson as Looking Glass
Louis Gossett Jr. as Old Man
Adelaide Clemens as Pirate Jenny
Andrew Howard as Red Scare
Jeremy Irons as Adrian Veidt/Ozymandias
Frances Fisher as Jane Crawford
Jacob Ming-Trent as Panda
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Cal Abraham
PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’m entrenched in a very musical weekend with shows to attend I will not be sitting and watching this as it happens tonight but will be programming the DVR to make sure to capture it to see at a later time. As you read this notice I am off to NJ to see friends and then catch an exciting set by Battle Beast. I’m still recovering from the Misfits show that destroyed NYC last night and will be working on a show review as soon as I can see straight again. What about you? Are you planning on dedicating some time to this continuation of the “Watchmen” story? Chime in down below in the comments section since I’d love to know what you think. See you next time.
