Trivia

Second attempt at a Watchmen TV series. Terry Gilliam attempted an adaptation in the early 90s but could only conceive the story being so epic that the time it would take could only be accomplished on television rather than film. Gilliam's vision went into pre production with HBO (as with this current one) & cast Robin Williams as Rorschach, Jamie Lee Curtis as Silk Spectre, Gary Busey as The Comedian, & Kevin Costner as Nite Owl. The project ultimately dissolved after HBO failed to provide a large enough budget for Gilliam's vision. Gilliam himself later claimed afterwards that an adaptation would've been "unfilmable" anyway.

Not Watchmen, not very good either
21 October 2019 | by gnug-24458See all my reviews

This feels like they took the name Watchmen as an attempt to rope in old fans and capitalize on its critical reception. Then, they made a show about things that seem very controversial so people would feel they have call it brilliant or seem like they weren't getting it. Add in plenty of little mysteries which Lindelof will continue to sprinkle in without ever doing a good job of tying together (ehem...Lost and Leftovers) and this show seems like it's destined to keep building until ending complete lack of payoff. Long story short, they should probably leave the legacy of Watchmen out of this and let Lindelof make another protracted non payoff without sullying a classic comic.
