Trivia

The commercials used in-between segments of this feature are genuine commercials from the 1970s, except with newly recorded voice-overs. The exception to this is the first commercial (Veidt Nostalgia), which ties in with the character of Ozymandias, played by Matthew Goode, from the main Watchmen (2009) movie. See more »

cut & dry companion piece to "Watchman" only worth a watch for die-hard fans
15 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This faux news show featuring interviews with Hollis Mason (Stephen McHattie) and Silk Spectre among others about Mason's superhero expose 'Under the Hood' which runs 37 & a half minutes and can be found as an extra on the DVD of "Tales of the Black Freighter" (and presumingly on the upcoming special edition of "Watchman" as well) feels rushed and too cut and dried. Although this was supposed to be an old 1970's news show complete with commercials, it didn't really have that feel in the least so the general conceit of it just falls flat. Worth a watch for only the die-hard fans of "Watchman" and sadly not worth the time invested for anyone else.

My Grade: C-
