Critic reviews for If You Don't Like My Story, Write Your Own

Coded language, deceptive truths, and a general aura of mystery dominate the fourth episode of HBO's Watchmen, an altogether perfect thematic drive for a story framed around a false-fronting billionaire.

We see fairly early on in episode four that she's [Lady Trieu] connected to these events and somehow they are connected to Angela's newly discovered grandfather as well.

Watchmen is shaping up to be possibly the finest show of 2019. It has hit a little under the halfway point, the pins are being set up and knocked down at the bat of an eye, and it just keeps getting more and more clever every week.

As great as the world-building is, and as much as I love watching all these great actors chew scenery at each other, I'd really like to get back to thematic storytelling.

Now that Sister Night, Laurie Blake, and the rest of the Tulsa PD are all firmly within one another's orbit and testing one another, things are starting to get weirder and more intense in the best of ways.

Helping matters, to little surprise, is Regina King, who is very much the emotional lynchpin of Watchmen. It's also enormously fun to watch her shifting dynamic with Laurie [Jean Smart].
