    Definitely down for this. HBO should be a perfect fit.

    This should be great, especially with him attached. Always one of my favorite GNs and I loved the movie, even with Zack Snyder's faults.

    i may get better but we won't ever get well Prestigious

    in theory, this could work - i think the episodic format would better suit the source material and HBO is a good spot for it. I don't have high esteem for Lindlehof but he's not as aggressively bad as Zach Snyder is.

    but, i don't know if Watchmen can be effective today... i think we're in a post-Watchmen superhero mindset creatively. then again, it could be fun to return to Cold War themes of paranoia and unrest. whether or not that'll turn viewers out, or if the critics will like it... who knows.

    This could be either very awesome or very bad but either way I'm excited

    Might be Spider-Man...

    Hopefully it's good. DC for the most part knows how to do tv.

    The movie sucked, was that because of Snyder? I'll probably skip this, doesn't interest me at all

    Loved the movie, but how can anyone not be excited for more Watchmen? Even if they don't stick strictly to the book, I'm down for any rendition of these characters.

    Nope
