Description

“Watchmen” takes place in an alternative, contemporary reality in the United States, in which masked vigilantes became outlawed due to their violent methods. Despite this, some gather around to start a revolution while others are out to stop it before it is too late, as a greater question rises above them all; who watches the Watchmen? Join The Shat on TV crew that brought you "Game of Thrones," "Westworld," "True Detective," "American Gods," and "Taboo" as they launch their newest TV venture: "Watchmen" on HBO. Premise "Watchmen" is the superhero drama television series, based on the DC Comics limited series of the same name created by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, created and developed by Damon Lindelof for HBO.

Episode Date
Ep.18: Watchmen - 108 - Deep Dive
01:08:40

Episode 8, "A God Walks into A Bar." A Watchmen Deep Dive told in three acts.

Act 1: Gene Lyons, a man who took two semesters of physics at Arizona State University, attempts to explain the string theory and bootstrap paradox of Dr. Manhattan's existence while also arguing that Will Reeves destroyed Cyclops on his own. Fast forward to Act 2 (34:00) if you don't care about retrocausality.

Act 2: Non-practicing Catholic Roger Roeper proves, once again, that any major TV character can be connected to Jesus Christ if you try hard enough. He also examines gods vs. men playing gods as he compares the archetypes presented in Ozymandias and Dr. Manhattan. Zip ahead to Act 3 (50:00) if the Bible doesn't interest you.

Act 3: The King Bee explores what Adrian Veidt's persecution in the post-credits scenes tells us about Europa and Veidt's motivations. Oh, and he takes a stab at the horseshoe thing. It's pretty good.

Watchmen Episode 8 Summary:

“A God Walks into A Bar” In Vietnam in 2009, Doctor Manhattan attempts to convince Angela to have dinner with him the next night, as they will fall in love later. Angela is highly skeptical, and Manhattan, after explaining his non-linear experience with time, explains that since 1985, he had been creating life on Europa, and that in 2019, he will fall in love with her just as he is about to be taken by the Seventh Kavalry. He explains how he took up the identity of Cal to blend in, and used a device created by Veidt to give him amnesia about his true identity until it was necessary for Angela to take it out. At Veidt's request, Manhattan transported him to the Europa environment, and also visited Will to encourage him to help Angela in 2019. Angela, speaking to Manhattan in 2019, asks him to ask Will in 2009 about how he knew of Judd's secrets, but realizes she created that idea to Will just now. As the Kavalry prepare to attack, Angela goes to protect Manhattan, who sees this as the moment he fell in love with her, and helps her fend them off, knowing one last Kavalry member remained alive to use a tachyon cannon to capture him. In 2009, Angela accepts Manhattan's dinner proposal. In a post-credit scene, the Game Warden gives a captive Veidt another anniversary cake, which Veidt finds a horseshoe baked inside, and in glee, starts to dig his escape.

"An Almost Religious Awe." Angela continues to be treated for the Nostalgia as her memories of losing her parents and her grandmother June in Vietnam mingled with Will's. She also learns that the Manhattan phone booths supposedly connected to Mars route to Trieu's facilities before Trieu herself tells her Manhattan is actually on Earth, in Tulsa, disguised as a human. After learning of the Kavalry's plan to capture and destroy Manhattan to become like him, Trieu plans to activate the Millennium Clock within the hour to save the world. Angela breaks free, rushes home, and tells Cal she loves him as a husband - calling him by the name Jon - before she bashes his head in and pulls out a small disc shaped like Manhattan's symbol; his body starts to glow blue. Laurie goes to speak to Jane Crawford about her husband's death, but falls into a trap door and is taken to the Kavalry's headquarters, where Joe reveals their plan to capture Manhattan to fight against white discrimination. Laurie's partner Petey tries to track down Looking Glass, finding his fallout shelter filled with dead Kavalrymen, but no sign of him. Meanwhile, Veidt is put on a year-long trial by the Game Warden, which he treats as a farce.

Episode 7, "An Almost Religious Awe" delivered the biggest plot twists we've seen so far, but were they overly telegraphed? And are they true to the "Watchmen" spirit?

Our seventh "Watchmen" Deep Dive dissects some of the decisions made by Damon Lindelof's team as The King Bee busts out some Reflectatine and Gene Lyons explains why Episode 7 is the nadir of an extraordinary HBO series and might be setting up a great ending.

Ep.13: Watchmen - 106 - Newsstand
59:45

Thanksgiving weekend be damned; we just can't stop talking about "Watchmen!" True to the excess of holiday binging and Black Friday shopping, this supersized Newsstand edition is overflowing with listener mail and voicemail.

We'll explore whether Looking Glass is the worst cop ever, how Nostalgia works, Lady Trieu's secrets, Jehovah's Witnesses, The National Memorial for Peace and Justice, Adrian Veidt's escape attempts, and more. 

Apologies for the occasional audio pop and/or angry outburst. It was a wild ride of a recording.

Watchmen Episode 6 Summary:

“This Extraordinary Being” Laurie tries to get Angela to agree to treatment before the Nostalgia kicks in, but is too late as the latter starts to experience Will’s memories as a new officer with the New York Police in 1938. After discovering a ploy called “Cyclops”, he is nearly lynched by his fellow white officers. While walking home while, he dons a mask and hood to fight off men attacking a young couple. He is called a hero the next day, and supported by his wife June, takes on the persona of “Hooded Justice”. Will is invited to the Minutemen by Captain Metropolis, but when Will finds that “Cyclops” is a plan by the KKK to hypnotize black people at movie theaters to incite riots among themselves across the country, they refuse to help. Will takes out the New York operation on his own, killing all involved, and becomes disillusioned with his role; leaving his family. In the present, Will uses a modified form of the hypnotic technology to make Judd hang himself. Angela wakes up at Lady Trieu’s quarters, who has been helping to get the Nostalgia out of her system.

Episode 5, "Little Fear of Lightning" set our sights on "Watchmen" fans' favorite character: Looking Glass. It's a master class in illustrating an origin story while also answering loads of questions.

Watchmen Episode 5 Summary:

Wade suffers PTSD as a survivor of Veidt’s 1985 squid attack. Laurie bugs Wade’s desk and learns that Angela asked him about the pills. Wade’s ex-wife, Cynthia, tells him the pills are Nostalgia, which contains other people’s memories. The Kavalry lure Wade to a warehouse, where they are testing a teleportation portal. Joe explains both he and Judd are Kavalry members trying to keep them in check. Joe coerces Wade’s help to learn what Angela knows about Judd’s death after showing him a video of Veidt, made a day before the 1985 attack and addressed to future President Redford, explaining his long-term plan; shaking Wade to his core. At the station the next day, Wade gets Angela to state that her grandfather was behind Judd’s death. Laurie hears this via the audio bug and arrests Angela, but not before she ingests the pills. Wade returns home after work and Kavalry members arrive with guns. Veidt learns that his prison is on Europa, and arranges the frozen bodies of his servants to spell out “SAVE ME” so they will be visible to Juno. However, he is pulled back into the prison and arrested by the Game Warden.
