‘Watchmen’ Trailer: HBO drops its first look at the series, and I’m counting the seconds until its debut.
I am all f-u-c-k-i-n-g in for the Watchmen series coming to HBO. I was prior to this trailer, and fucking boy howdy, am I now.
Aiight, so calling these teasers are a bit of a stretch. But, like, they’re official posts and they’re teasing something. So, let’s just fucking roll with it.
After the jump, cause Instagram video!
Toot toot goes the fucking Watchmen TV series hype train, or some shit. Cause, I mean. Jeremy Irons as Ozymandias? Fucking perfect.
I’m here for anything regarding Damon Lindelof’s and HBO’s Watchmen remix. So, watch me shamelessly eat up a silly teaser image from Lindelof. Watch me!
Check it out after the jump.
‘Watchmen’ TV series has been officially greenlit by HBO. I already thought it was, but whatever, fuck yeah!
I, I already thought this shit was greenlit. But, I’m wrong! Nothing new, nor usual about that. That said, fucking stoked.
If Lindelof’s Watchmen series was directly following LOST, I would be worried as fuck. However, most of the people I’ve talked to said his work on The Leftovers fucking rocked. So, this guy? He’s going to be cautiously optimistic.
HBO is developing a Watchmen series alongside Damon Lindelof. Woah, nice. A Watchmen adaptation has always made most sense (to me) as an HBO series, or on another premium channel. As well, I’ve always had a problem with Lindelof, but apparently the dude more than acquitted himself with The Leftovers. So. Color me excited. Worst case Ontario, it still can’t be as bad as the Snyder movie.
I don’t really buy that Alan Moore is retiring from comics, but if he is? The Grand Shaman-Wizard of the Sequential Art World has earned his vacation. Say what you will about the dude – brilliant, blow hard, reject the binary and dub him brilliant blow hard — motherfucker is seminal. We’re all still surfing the ripples of Watchmen for better or worse (for worse).
When Zack Snyder ruined Watchmen, one of my sole sources of solace was the desperate rationalization, “Well, it couldn’t really be done in a movie, anyways. It needed to be a mini-series. Or a premium channel television show.” But now Zack Snyder wants to ruin this excuse for me, for he is apparently trying to ruin the comic series in televised format.
Don’t worry about it. Yeah you got that thing to do. But you’ll get to it tomorrow. Or maybe the day after that. Keep your nose down. Do your job. Talk about the weather. Feign interest in the Dead Democracy. Yeah you got that thing to do. But you’ll get to it next week. Or maybe the week after that. Make small talk about the local sports team. Notice your gray hairs. Lament the weight gain. Yeah you got that thing to do. But you’ll get to it next month. Or maybe the month after that.
