Ahoy Me Mateys Captain Cats here! Watchmen, a comic book series that change the way comic books were told and said that it could not be turned into a movie until the 2009 release and that was fine. Now HBO want to retell it as TV series according to The Hollywood Reporter¬†that HBO gave the Damon Lindelof’s take on the graphic novel the green light. HBO has released a logline for the series as follow:

“Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own.”- HBO

Lindelof’s take on Watchmen will be a “remix” of the source and has its cast already with Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Adelaide Clemens and Andrew Howard.

To me, I don’t think this is a good idea because how can one “remix” Watchmen, as I said before the 2009 movie did an excellent job retelling the series. Whoever at either HBO or Warner Bros thinks it is an excellent time to make Watchmen into a TV series must have a death-wish because if this flops and gets canceled after the first season, a lot of people will lose their jobs and heads will be rolling.
