Blue balls is one thing. Blue penis? That's not Dr. Manhattan. That's Dr. Queens.

Ha!

 

 

So Jeremy Irons is Viedt, right? Has it actually been said?

 

Second episode was indeed strong despite what I feel is the wrong use of Rorschach. As much as I have been a NIN fan for 30 years, the soundtrack is a little over-powering sometimes. Also interesting that in this version of 2019 they have holograms and aircraft with anti-grav, but no cel phones.

So they made 2019 infinitely more awesome than reality?

He was referred to as Veidt in the first episode. By one of his clones I believe.

Why not. His attempt at stopping nuclear war worked. Society still devolved because humanity is imperfect. Next step. Create the perfect being.

Didn't watch from the beginning, so at first I didn't get who Laurie Blake was. Then I was like "Is she Silk Spectre?"

I think it's becoming cheese that Veidt isn't on Earth. Dr Manhattan has him in some sort of "prison" on Mars.

And by God Laurie, is that blue dildo just a tad big?

Veidt definitely on Mars but I think these are all flashbacks. It looks like each flashback is a different year based on the candles on the cake each episode.

Veidt is probably already out in the current timeline - Dr M destroying his prison in the first episode on that TV screen?

GLYCON FORGIVE ME BUT I HAVE WATCHED THREE EPISODES OF THE WATCHMEN TV SHOW AND HEARTILY ENJOYED EACH AND EVERY ONE - IF IT HADN'T BEEN FOR The Leftovers (2014-2017) BEING ONE OF THE BEST TELEVISION SHOWS OF ALL TIME I WOULD HAVE JUST SKIPPED THIS BUT, NOPE, I GAVE IN AND I'M GLAD I DID SO FAR - THANK YOU TRENT REZNOR FOR TAKING THE Knight Rider (1982-1986) THEME AND MAKING IT SLAP

 

I think something's going to happen (can't really back it up in the usual fashion; it's not a fan theory because I'm not offering any fan evidence, nope, no sir, this is totally not a return to the endless episode-by-episode theorizing on Battlestar Galactica (2004-2009) and Lost (2004-2010) and should not be treated as such) but this is a longshot guess that's close enough to being the modern day equivalent of assuming Ozymandias killed The Comedian while reading the backmatter in the 3rd issue back in '86 so I just want to be on the record here about this wild nearly unfounded speculation in case it turns out I'm ... right?

Even if I stop liking this show, I'll keep watching just for the soundtrack.

I really hope this gets a second season. I can't believe they were trying to tell this story in 9 episodes.

The character work on this show is amazing. I loved Truie's introduction.
