Watchmen May Be Over, But You Can Relive It All Via Its Digital Effects

Season one of Watchmen is over and it’ll probably be a long time before we see any more episodes...if we ever see any more episodes, which is a decidedly sad thought. At least now that it’s over, we can appreciate the entire season as a whole in any way that we’d like. Read More >>

Doctor Manhattan Has Brought Watchmen’s Story About Time Full Circle

As a young boy, Watchmen’s Jon Osterman had no idea that he would one day grow up to be the closest approximation of a god that anyone would ever live to see or that he would fundamentally alter the course of history in nearly unimaginable ways.

Even Sex Toy Makers Think Watchmen’s Big Blue Dildo Is ‘Extreme’ (NSFW)

In the third episode of HBO’s Watchmen series, Laurie Blake aka Silk Spectre pulls out a gigantic electric blue dildo. It’s an obvious sight gag – her ex is a blue man who can control his size, right down to the most intimate level. That said, it does raise some questions.

This week’s episode of Watchmen told the story of Hooded Justice, the first American masked vigilante.
