HBO’s new series WATCHMEN premieres on Sunday, October 20. Developed for television by Damon Lindelof, WATCHMEN is essentially a sequel to Alan Moore’s 1987 graphic novel of the same name (as with other adaptations of his work, Moore has disavowed the TV follow-up).

However, he is willing to tease Fitz’s state of mind following the bombshell events that ended Season 2. ASSIGNMENT X: Are all of the things that happened in […]Read On »
