Watchmen Podcast Season 1 – Episode 7: “An Almost Religious Awe”

“I prefer the stillness here. I am tired of Earth. These people. I am tired of being caught in the tangle of their lives.” – Dr. Manhattan

WARNING: Much like, Jon Osterman’s nonlinear origin story, this podcast jumps around all over the place. An EXPLOSIVE new Watchmen Podcast has arrived! Your hosts Carolyn, Wendy, Vanessa, and Toni basically spend a lot of time geeking out that THAT Doctor Manhattan fan theory proved to be true! Your hosts have had their suspicions about Cal Abar for while. We discuss that and:

  • Even more superhero parallels!
  • America’s Vietnam and imperialism (shout out to Puerto Rico!)
  • Who is Lady Trieu’s dad?
  • Clone confirmations
  • Mild frustration over the Adrian storyline
Abar: Black Superman (1977)

HBO provided supplemental reading on their site called “Peteypedia,” with all kinds of history, background and fill-ins for the episode.

LOGLINE: Set in an alternate history where masked vigilantes are treated as outlaws, WATCHMEN, from executive producer Damon Lindelof (Emmy® winner for “Lost”; HBO’s “The Leftovers”) embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name, while attempting to break new ground of its own. Nicole Kassell directs the pilot from a script written by Lindelof.
