Critic reviews for It's Summer and We're Running Out of Ice
[Watcfhmen] establishes a black, female hero unlike we've ever seen on this scale.
Regina King was a phenomenal choice to play detective Angela Abar. The Emmy and Oscar-winning actress can straddle that line between being wife/mother and a hardened masked vigilante cop.
Watchmen is looking to be a thrilling and satisfying continuation of the world that changed the world 30 years ago, if the pilot is anything to base anything off of.
One episode in and Watchmen is already a fascinating and disturbing look at race in America.
I'm optimistic, albeit cautiously. Watchmen's first entry feels like both an epilogue to something we've seen, and a prelude to something else entirely, rather than a fully-formed story exploring ideas of its own.
