    listened to an interview where lindelof praised the ending of inception, so I knew exactly what the last shot would be once they showed that flashback

    That was the perfect season of TV. I don’t want anymore from those particular characters, because it won’t be topped. Give me more within the universe though.

    That’s literally my only gripe, but I guess not everything has to be plot worthy.

    I did call the Veidt statue.

    The Veidt stuff was great, especially his open-ended sendoff. He desperately wants to be acknowledged but not if he’s going to be punished.

    They need to give lindelof a Nobel prize or something just for recreating the feeling I got from the book 20 years ago. I just never thought it was possible

    finale was wonderful. a great capper.

    only thing i sort of disliked were the flashbacks at the very end on the significance of the egg. think it was a little heavy-handed... starring at the egg and going outside to eat it and walking on water (or not) would've been enough.

    but i suppose we all follow it a little bit more than everyone else.

    It’s a testament to this story that we’re so wrapped up in Watchmen 2019 concluding that we haven’t thought of S2 featuring any place in time other than immediately following the events we just saw unfold. I think they could do the original minutemen if they wanted

    He’s fast enough to be able to catch a bullet. I think the comedian says it about him. Him or nite owl but veidt is incredibly fast.

    that’s another callback. Rorschach and Nite Owl crack his computer and discover his plan in the original comics.
