“In an era of stress and anxiety, when the present seems unstable and the future unlikely, the natural response is to retreat and withdraw from reality, taking recourse either in fantasies of the future or in modified visions of a half-imagined past.”
Welcome to another highly-anticipated episode of Watchmen Podcast featuring your hosts: Carolyn, Wendy, Vanessa, and Toni getting into the nitty gritty of this week’s “Martial Feats of Comanche Horsemanship.” In this episode, the hosts:

HBO provided supplemental reading on their site called “Peteypedia,” with all kinds of history, background and fill-ins for the episode.
LOGLINE: Set in an alternate history where masked vigilantes are treated as outlaws, WATCHMEN, from executive producer Damon Lindelof (Emmy® winner for “Lost”; HBO’s “The Leftovers”) embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name, while attempting to break new ground of its own. Nicole Kassell directs the pilot from a script written by Lindelof.
