The much anticipated original HBO series has finally arrived. Based on the groundbreaking graphic novel Watchmen, Damon Lindelof has remixed the plot with a fresh vision to create the Watchmen series.
The teaser trailer promises the audience a legendary series jam-packed with action, superheroes, controversy and the return of Dr Manhattan. Don't want to miss what is set to be another incredible HBO show? Keep reading to find out how to watch Watchmen online – no matter where on Earth you are.
Set in an alternative history where crime is prominent and recurring, the police are forced to wear masks to protect their identity from a terrorist organisation – the catch being that the titular vigilantes must also don masks to keep themselves safe.
And how do you tell the difference between a masked cop and a vigilante? Exactly the kind of philosophical question the show will seek to raise, with reflections on misunderstood superheroes and antihero sentiment. This isn't your average comic book blockbuster!
Although Watchmen is set in an alternative history, the series will draw many parallels to the current day and age – it is set to raise and tackle several issues including terrorism and fear of terrorism, racism, police brutality and the rise of the far-right.
With Oscar-winning cast members and the approval of comic artist Dave Gibbons (who helped write the original Watchmen comic) this series is set to be a hit! Can't wait to watch the Watchmen? Keep reading to find out how to watch Watchmen online – no matter where in the world you are.
