    I like the aesthetic shown a lot and Lindelof has my trust after The Leftovers. Depending on how "artsy" it is, it could be the next Game of Thrones in terms of popularity. It has prestige appeal through HBO and Lindelof and mass appeal through its superhero hook and Watchmen IP. Plus I'm convinced that the next Game of Thrones will only arise through a weekly release schedule rather than through binge releases.

    I'm a Lindelof fan but I know nothing about Watchmen so I'm wondering, how original of a story is this show?

    edit:

    Lindelof says, "For those not familiar with the brilliant source material, just know that EVERYTHING in this show was built upon the foundation created by the unbelievable artistry of Moore & Gibbons. I will continue to sing their names until I can sing no longer, for I am only here because of them."

      My guess is judging from how it looks like there is a Rorschach cult that has formed, it takes place following his death and the whole "averted apocalypse" at the end of the book.

      Same definitely a fan of his work. His Phineas and Ferb episode was the absolute best. Jokes aside I do like his work. From what I read on Reddit, this show is in a universe where the comic's ending is canon.

    This kind of looks interesting, a doomsday cult trying to "correct the world" idolizing the cult of personality around an unstable individual who broke one day and just kept breaking.

    But they already made Mr. Robot, why are they airing it again on HBO?
