Just watched the Watchmen HBO TV show (spoilers)

Ugh, I don't even know where to begin with this shitty mess. The whole thing seems to be based around "white people bad, black people good." As if the world needs more polarization. The whole thing just drips with SJW nonsense like they were actually trying to make it as woke as possible.

Now that last sentence I think I can explain. Back when Alan Moore made The Watchmen comic, he wanted to make an awful character. He wanted to make a character that was authoritarian, brutal, and insane. He ended up making Rorschach and accidentally making the most popular character in the entire comic. Yet another Alan Moore fuck up as he tries to write a deep comic and only succeeds in turning people onto a character he set up to make as awful as possible. I think the show writers knew this and wanted to make the Kalvary (the Rorschach white supremacist movement) as awful as possible. The entire first episode the Kalvary is just being as redneck hobo trailer park as possible. My guess it will do what it always does when the writer has an agenda, it will do the exact opposite.

I've only watched the first episode so far and so far it's pretty bad.

Idk Fona, Shotime was worth it for many years. I'm lead to believe HBO is also very worth it.
