Critic reviews for Martial Feats of Comanche Horsemanship

Watchmen dutifully follows [Angela] direction, using its second episode to lay foundation while pushing along current events just enough to keep momentum.

While the first episode laid the groundwork for this universe, the second episode served as a bridge into what's to come this season.

There's seven more episodes ahead, and just as the novel slowly revealed information this seems to do the same. More information is to come, more layers to be revealed. All that's left to do is wait.

The America of Watchmen is just like real America, but with the addition of x-ray goggles and superheroes, except the superheroes all seem kind of unhinged and borderline villainous.

While the role-reversed racial politics aren't fully fleshed out, the story of grief and betrayal is told with cinematic deftness.

October 29, 2019 | Rating: 8.0/10 | Full Review…

The second episode doesn't match up to last week, though flabby flashbacks and red herrings don't dampen a richly-drawn world we're eager to see more of.
