Watchmen: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Watchmen: Season 1 (2019)



Critic Consensus: Bold and bristling, Watchmen isn't always easy viewing, but by adding new layers of cultural context and a host of complex characters it expertly builds on its source material to create an impressive identity of its own.

Critic Reviews for Watchmen: Season 1

All Critics (115) | Top Critics (30)

Lindelof has turned it into a stunningly cinematic look at white supremacy, policing and race in the US. Watchmen is mystifying but hugely entertaining, if deeply troubling.

December 17, 2019 | Full Review…

Sunday night on HBO, I saw something I thought I'd never see on television: the depiction of a dark day in American history that not many know about-the Tulsa massacre.

Top Critic

Based on the episodes I've seen, it's too early to tell whether Lindelof can make the show's enigmas pay off in a satisfying way, but so far, I'm ready to give him the chance.

Top Critic

Lindelof's work will either add up to the coolest, most intricate dramatic series this side of Westworld or the biggest swing-and-a-miss in recent television history.

October 23, 2019 | Full Review…
Top Critic

An energetic, unruly show with a very concise and ambitious objective.

October 18, 2019 | Full Review…

Watchmen is a thrilling and scintillating series that is sure to find armies of fans, old and new, who will undoubtedly be besotted.
