While the alt-right has gone on this vendetta to hate on HBO’s Watchmen, a lot of fans agree that this is probably the best way to deal with the title; expanding on the story and making it relevant to today’s times. You know who can’t stop gushing about the show though? The Mandalorian’s Pedro Pascal.
Last week Pascal had come out to talk about the show on Twitter, and now he has a new post praising the show once more:
He even posts this link that illustrated what happened during the Tulsa Massacre that the show started with:
I have to say, the show is amazing, and it’s managed to give us some great new characters while at the same time making characters from the original comic relevant as well. Ozymandias may have his own mystery going on, but I really love the characterization of Laurie Blake a.k.a. Silk Spectre. I also love how they’ve handled original Minuteman Hooded Justice. Next week we’re going to finally meet Dr. Manhattan on the show, and it would be interesting to see how his appearance is going to be explained.
While the reveals have been big, they admittedly have been focusing too heavily on flashbacks. Hopefully with only two episodes left, we get to have the story in present-day Tulsa move forward.
As for Pascal, he’s starring in one of the most popular shows on television right now. Catch The Mandalorian Fridays on Disney+. Watchmen shows on HBO every Sunday night.
