Watchmen

The HBO series is very good indeed.

A worthy successor to Alan Moore’s peerless graphic novel - which is saying quite a lot. In a world of pitiful DC and Marvel bollocks it really is head and shoulders above.

Highly Recommended.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

It was wonderful.
It was raining when we drove up the two-lane highway through the long tunnel of trees that led into the black district on the south end of St. Martinville.

Absolutely stunning show.

Be interesting to see what Alan Moore (who has long been dead against film/TV adaptations of his work - and doesn't have a credit here - thought.

Looks as if HBO are going to respect Damon (Lost, The Leftovers) LIndleof's desire to not proceed with a second series. Given how some series have been fucked up by outstaying their initially rapturous welcome - Homeland and, um, Lost itself - this would seem to be a very wise (and commercially brave) decision.
