Episode Info

Episode Info:

ToB Breakdowns are back! Dan and Jeremy got together to delve into the latest HBO phenomenon. Based on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ prototypical dark comics, Watchmen simultaneously evokes familiar themes from the source material, while managing to fearlessly tackle deep modern issues as well.

Set amidst an alternate version of present day Oklahoma, HBO’s Watchmen introduces us to a violent, grimy, racially-charged world where police are forced to conceal their identities and (allegedly) trans-dimensional squid rain from the sky. Regina King, Don Johnson, and Tim Blake Nelson lead the cast as sanctioned detective/vigilante hybrids fighting a losing battle against an increasingly dangerous hate-group, and a crippling bureaucracy.

From a harrowing opening sequence to an enigmatic twist ending the first episode perfectly establishes the series’ tone, and with a clock ticking inexorably over the episode’s final moments we know begin to understand that by the time the answers are revealed it will be too late. Always has been, always will be. Too late.
