I'm not a socialist and I haven't spouted a single socialist thing here. If you want to provide evidence to your assertions that would be nice.
It also isn't a conservative site. Some like to pretend it is.

Because pretending is fun.

Otherwise vaguely on topic. Meh. I have no issue with social justice movies. Or even uber cringy patriotic ones. (Still looking at you battle for LA) I will even ignore obvious product placement like Tony Starks Aldi.

People like to have a moral or a theme to a story that is pretty normal. So good luck to them .

As the saying goes. Every movie is about something. Exept Ghostbusters.

I watched it. I’m going to give it a few chances since I really am a fan of the movie and comic. Plus from what I read there maybe another aspect to the show.

It is conservative, but a few leftist fags like yourself can't stand the fact that conservatives gather here and so wake up every day wanting to rant here until your dole check shows up.

It has nothing to do with the watchmen movie. It seems to be nothing more than a 'blacks are the good guys fighting evil white men' show.
It is based off the movie. It picks up years later. And from what I understand will have even more to do with the movie as time goes on. Give it time. I think it will end up being really good and less cringe sjw. I think the cops are going to end up being bad guys just like the 7th Calvary. But I can’t be sure.

I am not stopping conservatives gathering.

But if you are pretending you have any more authority over this site than anyone else you are mistaken.

Just because the weaklings you surround yourself prop you up as some sort of alpha male doesn't mean I have to. That is the beauty of the internet. That you can access diverse opinions that you would not normally encounter in your trailer park.

Jut like the watchmen series. You don't have to agree with their stance to enjoy it.

Who would watch that crap anyway? Television is just a cartel of SJW writers who couldn't pass math in college and try to tell the world how it should be with their lame humanities training. Then they insert the subliminal messaging to encourage debt forgiveness on their student loans so they can spend that Hollywood paycheck on what they like instead of what they owe. Beyond business news my television stays off unless the weather is acting up.

Surround myself with yes-men? Are you high? I tell everyone here at SB to kiss my ass. It has never occurred to you that there are more than a hundred million people in the US who think like I do independently of each other. Yup, more than 4 times as many conservatives here than all of the people in your dusty island.

Trailer park? Not many trailer homes have an internal 2 car garage, 5 bedrooms, 3700sqft of living space on a 3/4 acre in the heart of a city as big as Sydney. Eat your heart out, loser. I'll bet your dole check barely affords you a Murphy bed in your rent controlled studio walkup.

I also seem to remember having this same conversation with you recently, where you were told by the forum admin how the wind blows here. You'd be wise to remember your short leash.

Watched the episode last night and I wasn't really that in to it. I see all the anti-white stuff, but I wasn't bothered by it. It seems that the races in this story have been switched around, cops being mostly black, heros being black, and those committing crimes are white. It's ironic that some here suddenly see the inherent racism as soon as certain tropes change race.

I'll check out the next episode, some shows take a few to get going, and this might had just been an attempt to create controversy and draw in viewers.

It'd be nice if they switch it, but I doubt it. I never saw the entire movie the whole way through, just parts here and there. Wasn't the comedian killed in the movie, and isn't there a comedian in the series? Is it supposed to be a new person?

Not sure if I'll watch it again. Maybe let the series run out, and if it DOES change direction, I'll flix or on demand it later. And if it doesn't, I'm not out any time.

I watched it and I agree, the cops may be the bad guys after all. Not to be a spoiler.. but a major star was killed in the 1st episode, I would have thought he would have been around a lot longer.

I could only make it through half the first episode. The overt racism against Christian Whites is unbelievable. If I hadn't seen it for myself, I wouldn't believe it. Before I reveal any spoilers, especially about the interrogation scenes, I will await any other potential comments. Has anyone else seen this travesty of a propaganda piece?
Isn't the main antagonists white supremacists? If you aren't one, then who cares? Don't watch it if you don't like it. When you start (yet) another whine thread you just draw more attention to it. (Not that HBO needs you to advertise. I think they drew 2.5 million views for that one episode.)

This is actually the case.

The liberal scrum who are afraid of guns make "shoot em up" movies that they know will sell to fund their "social justice warrior" trash.

They have literally sat there on set and told me this.
Sure they did. What "D" list movie set did they say this on? "Navy Seals v. Zombies?" Even still, you cashed a check, right? So you weren't that bothered by the "social justice warrior trash."

People seem to be attacking this show because of the "blacks are good, whites are bad" theme. I simply found the show to be poorly done and bad acting. Story didn't really pull me into wanting to watch more. Because of this thread I might watch another episode.

I have to say I tried to watch it. It was just meh. and not really done well. Bad writing and poor editing.

Don’t waste your time on it.

Sounds to me they were selective. They make whites the criminal race, but conveniently keep the KKK around?

Sounds more like to me that if whites did it and it was bad then they kept it, but if blacks did it then they transferred it to whites.

A complete reversal would have the KKK being black. Being selective they are ensuring perception that white is always bad.

Are they planning to include the abolitionist movement, the Kansas blood feud, or the underground railroad efforts that the dominant race also offered in opposition to those of its kind who were for keeping the minority down?

Will there be a race reversal for the NAACP, ACLU, or NRA that whites set up to help blacks?

Will a black Charlton Heston march with poor oppressed whites?

Who will play the peaceful white MLK?

Reversal of roles means exactly that. If they are selective to ensure whites always look bad then it is no ironic role reversal. It will just be leftist SJW propaganda to keep whites looking bad at all costs.

If that's all they are doing then maybe we need to infiltrate some Mississippi peckerwoods onto the set and tell them when the faux clansmen go nuts for the camera that they should do it for real and burn the whole damn film set down.

If they go taking the worst of each side and saddle it bonto the whites then they are supporting slanderous bigotry and if you don't repudiate it then so are you.



When is the next writer's strike coming? Next time I think I'm waltzing across the picket lines as a scab.

I don't know man, I mark it up as creative freedom to make whatever TV show they want. I don't have some underlying race loyalty that I feel the need to pick it apart to find things to be offended over.

I am truly surprised that so many posting here have HBO to begin with. I thought that was on the boycott list.

That surprised me too... My cable provider offered free HBO for two weeks and I couldn't find a thing worth watching. Maybe I'm missing something, but I doubt it.

The original comic thought very little of both conservatives and liberals so I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case.

Nixon was still president and was behind the assassination of JFK and Woodward and Bernstein, Vietnam was won using Dr Manhattan...yep all sorts of interesting changes to history. I've read that they're incorporating the current president on the show from the clues at the end of the comic.

I haven't watched the series yet as i'm finishing up some other shows and only have limited TV watching time. but I'll probably binge through it this winter even if it isn't all that great just because I liked the comic.

Also for those of you with HBO that are hating on Watchmen.....Go watch Righteous Gemstones, it's great.
