I’m Still Not Sure About This Watchmen TV Show

A Watchmen TV show is coming to HBO. It’s not going to be an adaptation of the legendary graphic novel. Instead, it’s going to be…some kind of continuation? I’m still not really sure, but I’ll probably get around to watching it. I hope it’s good! Even though I don’t have much faith, in spirit, in any Watchmen spin-off.

Today’s a pretty big day! My vacation is over and I’m back to work. But more importantly, the new expansion to Red Dead Online comes out today! I can’t wait to get home and finally play some new content!

Maybe I should have called in sick today…

The Watchmen TV Show Is Gonna Be Weird

HBO is making a Watchmen TV show. It’s not going to be an adaptation of the comic, it’s going to be…like, a sequel, maybe? Or a re-interpretation? I am not sure. But the first trailer arrived yesterday and it explains nothing!

When HBO first announced this series, I tried to do a List of Six of things I wanted to see in a Watchmen TV show. But after giving it some thought, the only thing I wanted was a solid adaptation of the graphic novel. We’re not getting that. so I guess I’ll just hang tight and see what we get instead.

Deadwood Will Be My Avengers Palette-Cleanser

I’ve been posting mostly Avengers: Endgame stuff over the past few days, so let’s cut that out and watch a new trailer for the upcoming Deadwood movie. I’m still very surprised this is happening, but it looks pretty good!

There could be more trailers later today, if the rumors pan out. But we’ll see. For now, let us rejoice at more Al Swearengen in our lives! And considering how much I played Red Dead Redemption 2, I could use a little more cowboy turn of the century adventure in my life.

My 6 New Favorite Game of Thrones Characters…Probably

The final season of Game of Thrones is upon us and it promises to be devastating! I have high hopes for the finale and look forward to each and every episode! About six years ago, just as the show was getting started, I put together a List of Six of my favorite characters at the time. It’s an interesting list to look back upon. And heck, all but one of the characters is still alive! Fancy that!

In honor of the final season, and because the list has changed a lot, I’ve whipped up a list of my current favorite characters heading into Season 8! I doubt this list will change by the end, barring someone doing something really awesome! Hopefully more than a few of these characters will survive the whole show.

GoT New Characters 01

There are still dragons!

It is definitely interesting to see how my favorite characters have changed over the course of the show. Most of my earlier favorites are still alive, like I said, and they remain cool characters. But mainly it seems new characters popped up and I found them just plain cooler and more interesting to watch.

So join me after the jump for my favorite Game of Thrones characters going into the final season! And feel free to share your own favorites in the comments!

Just, Like, a Bunch of New Movie Trailers

I don’t know what’s happening, but a ton of new movie trailers came out this past week. Avengers: Endgame is a month away. Are they gearing up to go before Us? Maybe!

Also, a surprising number of these trailers feature Ian McShane. Good for him!

First, here’s a trailer for John Wick 3: Parabellum.

I don’t know what the subtitle is about. Why does John Wick 3 need an awkward, cumbersome word tacked onto the end? Either way, it’ll hopefully be a fun film. They managed to stretch the first John Wick into one sequel, let’s see if they can do it for a threequel!

Next up is Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Quentin Tarantino makes good movies and this one should be no different!

Lastly, there’s finally a trailer for the finally made Deadwood movie on HBO! How insane is it that this actually exists?

Deadwood is a great TV show that ended with a stilted third season. They were ramping up for something big, then HBO pulled the plug and left the show and viewers dangling in the cold. Now, seemingly against all odds, they’ve all come back for a wrap-up movie a decade or so later. It’s madness!

But you’re damn right I’m gonna watch, you hoopleheads!
