Watchmen : It’s Summer and We’re Running Out of Ice

Episode 1

The episode should have been Sing Uncle Judd and I think every episode should start and end with Don Johnson singing from Oklahoma.

That is my review. That is all I have to say about the entire episode.

Honestly I wasn’t sure what I was going into with this, it is set after the comics and therefore has nothing much to do with the characters of the series I love but at least we go into the series knowing this. We meet our main character Angela Abar, played by Regina King, and she’s as bad ass as you’d want the main character of a Watchmen series to be. Everything from her attitude, her home life, her back story to her costume and the way she interacts with certain characters is just cool as hell and she is honestly the best part of the episode which makes it so nice to know she’ll be the person we’ll be following in the series.

We didn’t really get any kind of indication how the world has come to be the way it is, we don’t really know who the actual bad guys are or what fight Abar is joining but I guess it also didn’t matter.

It set up so much whilst giving us enough of a mystery to want to come back.

Plus it feels like a Watchmen show.

We’ve seen a few guys helping the police including Abar and they all seem pretty cool specially the guy with the reflective mask.ย  We’ve even caught a glimpse of two of our old friends too, one still not on this planet and the other very much on this planet in one sense maybe not another.

It made me excited.

Honestly my favourite part of the entire thing was the cast and I think that has to be the way it is with Watchmen. It has always been something that has made me fall in love with the characters first and the story after, I remember seeing the film for the first time, what got me into the series, and having no real clue what I was watching but knowing how I felt about each and every character. I really want to see what happens with Abar and who the old man is (I know WHO he is but we don’t really know who he is yet) and what he wants.

Whilst not the best first episode of a series I’ve seen all year it was pretty damn close.
