Watchmen ?

Do you think somebody at Warners' is a bit peeved about Anonymous and other such groups picking up on those V For Vendetta masks in a big way?

Apparently a lot of the masks in circulation are knock offs rather than the official licensed ones that WB get paid a royalty on: I remember seeing an interview with Alan Moore during the occupy protests when he was bragging about that in a manner that might have struck some as a teensy bit mean spirited...

Though I have yet to watch the first episode and probably won't do so for a while, with angry fanboys and trolls review-bombing the show for being "too SJW/PC/insert your favorite buzzword here" on all the aggregate sites, I suppose that at the very least we can give this show some credit for pissing off the right suspects.

Sadly, some of these people are immune to satire: I've seen a few right leaning Americans using avatars of Rorscharch's fascist cult members on other messageboards.

That was surprisingly pretty damn good actually.

Can still go south, but as far as first episodes go, it made me look forward to a second.

Wasn't aware of the historical event that opens the episode which doesn't speak well for me!  Maybe more of the comic in there than I was expecting, some obnoxious pandering in there (that last shot...!) but overall I enjoyed it - some really interesting world building.
