Does this show do any recaps of the comic for people who haven't read it? Trying to decide if I should watch this solo or try to get my wife into it, and there's no way I can convince her to read it. She saw the Snyder movie, at least.




As someone who hasn’t read the comics, only the 2009 movie, the show had me hooked by episode 2. Definitely some WTF moments, but in a good way. I had a lot of fun watching this show. Each show felt like it’s own little story. Me liking it as much as I did probably helped by the fact I watched the 9 shows in 2 days, we had a lot of snow and not much to do. I think watching the shows in bulk made it easier for me to kind of figure out what was going on.

Also, reading these comments, around episode 5 or 6 I did have a thought that Cal was actually Dr Manhattan. The only reason why is because basically every character in the show had an important role up to that point and I noticed Cal was in a lot of scenes just to be in them and I knew there was something more to him.

The only thing that is a big deal in the show that wasn't in the movie was the whole squid thing.  

 

Basically, the nuclear attack in the comic was made to look like an alien invasion by some weird species of squid.

Squid thing was fuuuuuucked up. But I rode with it. I love the quirkiness of the show. Its dark, deep, has a lot of serious undertones. And then it has squids, blue dick, and cheesy gay superhero porn. I dig it.

You should definitely read the comic then.

 

Speaking of blue dick-- I recall when the movie came out and Manhattan was mostly CG there was a debate that since the blue crank was rendered, they could decide what size it should be. too large or too small and it would become distracting. 

 

This show did not have that problem. They were just straight up about it being really really small. I look at that thing and I was embarassed for the actor. I mean, that thing is just TINY.
