Completely disagree.  You'll enjoy it a lot more if you've read the book or at least seen the movie.

Another great episode.

For every question answered there seems to be two more asked. Really hope they can wrap these things up without having to push things over into a second season.

Supposedly this story arc is structured as a complete one-season story, no cliffhanger ending.

If it's popular enough you can near enough guarantee they'll shoehorn a loose end to spin out a second season.

Or maybe a different story set in the same world, like Fargo.  I hope there's another season, this has been the best show in ages.

Oh that's a good shout, I want more however they do it.

Episode 7 is up there with any episode of any TV ever made. So much fell in to place. Storytelling of the greatest ability.

PS: I hated the film, realising now that it was probably down to that I didn't understand it and thought it was going to be something else. So glad I gave this a chance.

Find any list of the greatest comics/graphic novels of all time, and Watchmen will be at the top, but it was always considered unfilmable.  The movie was basically a scene by scene remake, but it just didn't work, the screen was the wrong medium for that story.  If you like the show, give the book a chance, even if you're not into comics.  It's a lot deeper and thought provoking than the typical stuff.

The music (including cover versions) has been a big part of the enjoyment of this series.

That's great to hear.

I presume that version was by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross but the cover versions don't appear on the series soundtracks.

“I would never pass my abilities on to someone without their consent.  I suppose I could transfer my atomic components into some sort of organic material. If someone were to consume it they would inherit my powers.”

“So you can put them in this egg, and if I ate it I could walk on water?”

Seems obvious to me, but this show doesn't feel like it'll pick the obvious choice.

The backstory about Europa was cool.  Was surprised to discover that Adrian isn't in prison, and went there voluntarily.

I'm not following. Why would that require her to see him on the water?

Maybe she sees him not floating later (or someone else floating) and that's how she realises he's transferred his power.  It's definitely something that's happened to him in the future that he's already seen, and those lines means it's probably something to do with transferring his power.

The best show I've seen for a long time.
Did I ever tell you all about my encounters with Alan Moore when I lived in Northampton?

I lived in an area called Poets Corner.
It was about 15 minutes walk into town to the local comic shop.
So I would pop into the shop on my way into town.

It was a pretty well stocked - as good as Forbidden Planet used to be on Percy Street in the 90s.
One day, I was in there, browsing through a few books, when I felt a shadow behind me, and turned to face a huge (6' 3") hulking, hippy bloke.
He was dressed all in black with a silver Crow topped cane, and had huge silver rings on all of his fingers.
The 2 guys serving behind the counter went into 'Yeah, this happens every day' mode.
Yes, it was Alan Moore himself.

All I could say was 'Excuse me, mate' as I brushed past to get out of the shop.

Been kicking myself ever since that I didn't engage the man in conversation.
