Set in an alternate history where masked vigilantes are treated as outlaws, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name, while attempting to break new ground of its own.
Set in an alternate history where masked vigilantes are treated as outlaws and must embrace the nostalgia, Detective Angela Abar investigates the reemergence of a white supremacist terrorist group inspired by the long-deceased moral absolutist Rorschach.
As a child, Will sees a silent movie called "Trust In The Law!" about the U.S. Marshall Bass Reeves directed by Oscar Micheaux; in various ways, this movie deeply influences the rest of Will's life. Though this specific movie is fictional, both Reeves and Micheaux are real-life historical figures. Bass Reeves (1838-1910) was the first Black deputy U.S. marshal in the American West, working mostly in Arkansas and Oklahoma. Upon his retirement from the marshal service, he became a police officer in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Oscar Micheaux (1884-1951) was a pioneer in the early film industry who made both silent and sound pictures about African American life. See more »

I absolutely loved Watchmen! It's a thrilling dramatic series that will keep you entertained every episode with its powerful storytelling! It seems that most of the people who don't like it seem to be the right wingers! It not only just got the most Emmy Awards nominations for any show in 2020 but also broke the record for Emmy nominations for a limited series! All of those nominations are deserving because it's a phenomenal show!
