- So woke....1 star

It’s a ok show...the comic was light years ahead of it

- Everything5 star

This show is art. That’s all.

- #WatchmenForever5 star

I love the The first episode is it can’t wait to Watch the rest 😀😀😀😀😀

- They did it!5 star

Incredible! Thought they couldn’t continue the story in a relevant way and I was wrong. Watchmen 2019 takes the reality of the graphic novel and builds a world that is strange, but also familiar. Taking on questions of race and morality that are thought provoking and important. Worth buying the season to watch again.

- Don’t expect this to be as good as the graphic novel4 star

I think ultimately Lindelof did the right thing in making this his own take, instead of trying to rewrite a classic. It was a solid move to make the story both prospective and retrospective, to attract both new and die hard fans of Watchmen.

- Jeremy Irons is amazing in this5 star

I love this show, from the message, the acting, and comic relief.

- Best Superhero Show Ever5 star

Definitely not for kids, and you may be confused for several episodes about what’s going on with the guy in the English castle. But stick with it! It’s an intricate, fantastically well written adventure that honors the original comic better than that movie adaptation did. But it’s a sequel to the comic set years later and focusing on different characters, not a copy or reboot of the original. Have a box of tissues on hand when watching episode 8!

- Wow wow wow5 star

What a show!!

- Never a dull moment5 star

This show was even better than I expected. I genuinely don’t know why it doesn’t have a unanimous 5 stars. I’m not a comic book person, nor have I ever watched/read anything Watchmen related whatsoever. I never felt like I was missing anything. Also the soundtrack is amazing g as well.

- Now I Understand The 1-Star Reviews...5 star

...they’re from all those viewers who want to make America hate again.

- Best show of the decade5 star

Title says it all

- Greatest season5 star

Of television I have ever seen. It was perfect.

- Total waste of time, don't bother.1 star

It's hard to describe how awful the writing and story is. The actors are quite good and the show clearly has a big budget, but the pointless idiotic scripts are written by someone in high school, apparently. Got though four episodes and gave up. Watch the movie instead.

- Nah1 star

Some more millennial tv programming. Squeeze every conceivable left agenda talking point into a move, regardless of weather it is germane to the movie, plot, or characters. It did make the story richer, by rambling, chasing every possible aspect of a character, it just cost more in film and left less time for more interesting shiet.

- Enormous Challenge5 star

I cannot think of another TV Series that shifts the Overton Window as much as Watchmen. Perhaps To Sir with Love and Guess who is Coming Home for Dinner was the last comparable shift on a screen. Even the homosexual scenes have symbolism, a black man dominating a white man. The white nationalist plot and resolution should make 33 percent of Americans uncomfortable. The idea of the first Watchman being black should challenge the status quo. This Series is unparalleled. The whole Series is deconstructionist and applauded . This Series can be purchased.

- It's not like the movie or the comics1 star

I guess I didn't expect much from a show called Watchmen, who's main character is a woman. I couldn't sit through the first half hour of it. Unnecessarily gory, and including all the woke, racial stereotypes that you'd expect from any sort show produced in the US today. I'm sorry I bought the season. Maybe it gets better further into the series. I'll never know.

- Good1 star

Good show but hardly Watchmen. Go read the graphic novel; it is true genius.

- Remixed with love5 star

The is a great continuation and remix of the source material that’s held in such high regard amongst the fans of the original comics. So many Easter eggs, references, and very thoughtful tweaks for the world we live in today. I loved this show and I would love to explore this world more, but I am totally ok with this being a one season masterpiece.

- Some fantastic parts, but way too long3 star

This show was so uneven in pacing. Some episodes absolutely went way to long. Really feeling mixed. Not a huge fan of the universe. Read some of the graphic novel and watched the movie. Mostly wished I didn’t watch it, but some scenes and moments great.

- Absolutely worthy of the name Watchmen5 star

This is coming from somebody who was 100% against it when it was announced. I am VERY surprised and happy with this series.



- Love this show!5 star

Worth a watch! Really enjoyed it☺️☺️

I literally check this every single day, waiting for any kind of price drop...

left888 - Great Show5 star

Every show from HBO is 50% more expensive then they should be and if you don't support the show HBO pulls the plug, it's that simple. Now to the show, excellent story, well acted and I hope we see season 2, it is one of HBO's best effort in years.

Undrgrndkng - Wow5 star

$40 for 9 digital episodes. Daamn.

darthpepsi - 2 stars Only for the price2 star

Thanks HBO for a terrible price of $40 for 9 episodes!! Oh and the trailer for $3.49!!! Who are you kidding. Will happily buy once it’s below $30 but for now I can wait.

James1198 - One The Best TV Shows4 star

Great Music Great writing Very satisfying to watch it’s great You should watch it person reading this. It all comes together in the end. Great twists and turns.

dn.mny - Good stuff.4 star

Worth a watch. Pity Foxtel has the rights to HBO and AU have to watch it months after it airs in the US.

Stephen S - Inspired5 star

Creating new characters within such a hallowed alternate universe and making the original story better? Genius. So many social commentary strands with a love story burning brightly within the tangled web. Immerse yourself.

bashian - Watchmen5 star

Simply amazing. A spectacular continuation of the all-time classic graphic novel.

Daaaangerrr - Spectacular5 star

The best show of the year.

yauami - Only 8 episodes?1 star

This is not the complete season. Unlike other HBO shows, once they are off Foxtel they make the whole thing available. This is missing an episode. I hope iTunes can fix this.

macstargirl - Flawesome5 star

Got to up in the top 5 this series. I would have watch the movie if I had it but it wasn’t so bad that I had to watch the series without having seen the film.

colin26dsme - In Awe5 star

I've not actually seen the film, but the series is stupendous. I'm sincerely in awe of anyone who can come up with such a tribute to storytelling. The mix of grittiness and sci-fi fantasy is very special. Well recommended!

the_jazzdevil - The sequel you never knew you needed5 star

As a fan of the original graphic novel and someone who for the most part enjoyed the movie adaptation (barring the sudden and bizarre digression if a different ending), even I was somewhat at a loss after the first episode of the Watchmen tv show. To those familiar with the source material the show immediately feels like it’s in the same universe, but there’s little to link it to the original story. For those unsure of where the story is taking you after the first two instalments, I highly recommend sticking with it as the layers begin to peel back and the story reveals its relevance to the earlier book. Watchmen’s fictional dystopia is cunningly underpinned by references to real world historic events and disturbingly on point allusions to recent rises in racial tension - painting a grim vision of a reality barely removed from our own. Regina King is superb as masked cop Sister Night, supported by similarly brilliant cast including Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson and Jean Smart. Without doubt one of the most brilliantly played shows of the past decade, Watchmen is smart, absorbing and frightening and definitely the sequel you didn’t know you needed.

julsey crown - well worth the wait5 star

Watchmen is one of my favourite films. I had high hopes for this series, it does not disappoint. A modern classic, joyful and intriguing. Bing watched in two days.

Jskdhfjwnhfkd - Wow5 star

Didn’t know what to expect. Definitely in my top 3 series.

Monkey oh - HBO Midas touch!!5 star

To much rhetoric about this being too political.. I think we need a little political right now !! This show is frankly amazing, thought provoking and genuinely a work of genius. It surpasses the movie and I hope season two is already in production. A modern day “game of thrones” but without the naff ending!!!

max_fro - Absolute5 star

An amazing show full of layers that takes the original graphic novel of the same title to another level. The acting and storytelling is superb; creating lots of different stories that are all interesting and come together at the end. Must read the original source material to understand, or at least watch the film but is highly worth it. Would recommend to any fan.
