    As a huge fan of the graphic novel and the film adaptation both, i was worried they would botch this big time but was super impressed with the first episode. Lots of nods to the original and it shares a similar darkness as well. Very excited to see how much they blend the old with the new. Loved the Pod Scene. Wonder what Rorscach would think of the seventh calvary.

    Second ep was excellent too, especially the last few scenes. Loved the scene from American Hero Story too with over the top Snyder-esque action.

    Continues to be atrocious. Only thing worse than that god-awful funeral scene was the ridiculously sized Dr Manhattan dildo.

    Loved the big reveal of who Jeremy Irons is. What! No way!!

    Hopefully Dr Manhattan can bring something more to this than superficial nods to the original. Lifting lines from the comic doesn't feel cool, it feels lazy.

    Third ep continues the strong form, loving how they're weaving in the backstory.

    Good to see Jean Smart chewing up the scenery, the show seems to have taken a fair bit of influence from Legion.

    So far it's up there with Blade Runner 2049 as the best deftly handed sequels of beloved properties in recent memory.

    Jean Smart is fantastic in everything she is in.
