Watchmen HBO

I began viewing The Watchmen with an open mind. Sci-fi is my least favorite genre. I was intrigued about the alternate history plot line. And when you have a cast that includes Oscar winners Regina Hall, Jeremy Irons, and Lous Gosset Jr. you should be in good hands. But as I expected between the violence, convoluted dialogue and rules in the new society, the entertainment value dissipates. There is one scene that really pops. It’s when Don Johnson sings People Will Say We’re in Love from Oklahoma. Johnson’s vocalizing of that classic attempts to bookend a black version of Oklahoma that was presented towards the beginning of the premiere. Using Poor Judd Is Dead for the closing song again is a contrived way to tie up any confusion you would have about what the series is all about.
