It is a sequel.  I'm glad they just jumped right into it instead of explaining stuff we already know.

First two episodes have been amazing, it could so easily disappear up it's own arse but if it doesn't we are in for some top drawer television.

That is the inevitable outcome, Damon Lindeolf permanently exists in that state.

Doesn't mean that it won't be quality still.

I think it's definitely written under the assumption that most viewers will be at least passingly familiar with the source material. There's a whole lot that would make no sense otherwise.

Could someone update the title (or tell me now) when it’s all online? Then I can subscribe for one month.

Season finale due on December 15th.  Would definitely watch the movie or (preferably) read the book first.

Cheers.

I’ve done both, but not for a while. Might have a refresh first.

This is up there with the likes of True Detective, The Wire, and Game of Thrones as one of the best ever debut seasons.  It really is that good.

:lol: I started ep 1 when I was super tired and felt immediately lost. I need to re-read the graphic novel before I start this.

Episode 6 was excellent, really enjoyed it.

I've seen the Watchmen film from a few years ago but never read the original comic source material, so some things are a bit lost on me. However, having a certain amount of mystery is one of the appealing things about it so far and they do seem to be joining up a lot of the dots as the series progresses.

I would also recommend the official podcast that explains quite a bit about the show and includes the writer and exec producer Damon Lindelof.

Only major difference between the book and the movie is

Spoiler
[close]

Apart from that, the film is basically a scene for scene retelling.

I had no idea, but someone on Reddit successfully guessed this week's reveal.  This show has all the world building and attention to detail Lost did, but none of the tediousness.

This show is f***ing unreal, it's so well written and plotted.  Honestly man it's close to having a perfect season not long left if they pull it off I'm in awe.

First episode I was like wtf. I'm still a bit wtf so far but it seems like the backstory is spoon fed pretty well as we go along so I'm not that worried about not understanding anything as I assume what I don't understand will be told later on. No need for any previous knowledge of the universe for anyone doubting whether to watch it or not. Don't believe what the basement dwellers may tell you about nerdy comic book lore, you're fine without it.
