    Wife: It seems weird that the man who destroyed Vietnam would be lauded and sold on Vietnamese land.

    Me: Mount Rushmore.

    Wife: ...Okay, look.

    I can't believe the swings they're taking on this show, and I can't believe how well they're connecting on them. Fucking hell.

    You have to love this show's realism.
    "I'm not racist, but it is really hard being a white man right now." is kind of refreshing to hear a villain in popular media just say outright.

    Also I wouldn't say that "nothing happens" when we find out that Angela's husband Cal is actually Doctor Manhattan, and then she stuck a hammer in his head and dug out a Manhattan activator ring!

    When Angela and Lady Trieu were talking, they never even mentioned the elephant in the room.

    what i liked about this one:
    angela's backstory being fleshed out

    what i didn't like:
    the veidt courtroom thing. laurie's dumb idea to go and tell the whole story to judd's wife. the strained parallel between the tulsa massacre and a fictional vietnamese rebellion. everyone in angela's family dying in the same episode

    I won’t say I outright disliked this episode, but right now this show is more than ever sitting on razor’s edge, depending on where it goes from here.

    I still think this show is brilliant and thrilling, but it does feel maybe a little like episode 6 is the only one that truly lived up to the promise set up in the pilot for me? Not trying to be a downer, because I LOVE this show. But I think I set myself up for disappointment by expecting something transcendent instead of just great

    Over the most recent episode's credits:
    Was that a rendition of "Life on Mars?"?

    Laurie in regards to latest episode:
    I know things need to occur for the sake of keeping the plot engine moving but you would figure all her years of dealing with goofy pulp villain bullshit would at least have made her wary of .....*gesture* .....that. I know I wouldn't have noticed a goofy ass Mr. Burns trap door chair either but come on now.

    Cal
    I did think the comment he made stating that there was no god was kinda weird in regards to almost everything else we knew about him at that point but thinking about it, it really is the kind of shit some comic-booky Supernerd would have to say on the subject. I am 100% sure Reed Richards would say that shit to his kid.

    Right up until the last seconds of the episode, I was thinking that Angela had straight up lost her mind and murdered her *not* blue man husband. they should have left that as a cliff hanger

    I thought it was gonna be revealed that
    getting captured was somehow part of laurie's plan; I guess it still might be but it seems unlikely

    also it's been a while since I read watchmen but wasn't being uncomfortable with lying something dr manhattan says at some point? I was thinking about how weird he was about that the end of the episode

    And after reading that article, the aforementioned Abar’s first name was John. So many layers to these allusions!

    Also read a review compare Angela’s childhood to Batman’s, with her parents dying in front of her and taking up a night-themed costume based off of a movie hero she admired

    We know Looking Glass took a 7K mask off of one of his attackers, so it's likely he's going to show up in the 7K base and do... something.

    Also, not related, but
    When the hell are they going to reveal that lube man is Petey!

    So I'm guessing the night of the police killings
    Cal had to intervene and that's why the guy who had the drop on Angela wasn't able to finish the job.

    hearing him say that basically turned me around on this show's politics, it was such a relief

    Between Watchmen and Chernobyl, HBO is really knocking it out of the park for limited run series this year.

    But which one will walk away with the Emmy...

    Was there a Chernobyl thread? One of my pet peeves about its "reviewers" were about the historical inaccuracy of one of the characters, when the last episode has a section at the end of the finale explaining it. jfc

    The whole show, including the ending slides, was riddled with inaccuracies, some of which were important.
