Between Moore's name being thrown around a lot on social media lately, a doc on the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre that I caught the other day, and the fact that the anniversary of Damon Lindelof's Watchmen prequel/sequel/remix is coming up this October, this thing that's been buzzing around in my head finally found the open[...]

Personally, I'm all about HBO's Watchmen creator Damon Lindelof's theory on where Bezos got the idea for "Blue Origin" from Think back to that scene early in the series's run when Jean Smart's FBI Agent Laurie Blake reaching into her silver briefcase for a little (well, definitely not "little") bluish trip down memory lane (was[...]

Well, if there's one thing positive thing that the raging disaster that's still sliming his way through The White House has done over the past week or so (inadvertently, of course) is that it's given us an excuse to check back in with HBO Watchmen series creator Damon Lindelof Previously, we covered how Lindelof agreed with[...]

To be honest, barring anyone taking up series creator Damon Lindelof's challenge to jump into HBO's Watchmen universe sandbox, we figured the Emmy Awards would be the final chapter on our coverage And a great note it would be to end on, with major wins for the series overall, for actors Regina King and Yahya[...]

In Damon Lindelof's defense? He's been saying all along that he had no intention of coming back to craft a second season of HBO's Emmy Award-winning series Watchmen– but that didn't mean the series' universe shouldn't continue to be explored Now, we're on record saying that we feel Lindelof should go the Fargo route and[...]

Eleven Emmy Award wins isn't too bad of a way for Damon Lindelof's pseudo-sequel "remix" of the comic book classic Watchmen to wrap its "life cycle" as a series (even if there are additional seasons) The HBO series would earn the honor of being the first comic-book adaptation to walk away with the kind of[...]
