That's amazing. I would totally watch that show. And buy the action figures. Especially the Dr. Manhattan-mobile.

It's so wrong that it comes back around to being right again. :smallbiggrin:

I just realized exactly what Comedian wanting a kiss from Silk Specter 2 entails.
I think I threw up a little.

I think he'd be cool with it. He was on an episode of the Simpsons and they did a Watchmen parody. (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/8c/Watchmenbabies.png)

Also, get vid. Watched it twice and laughed out loud both times. I was disappointed that it was only the theme song and nothing more.

It's so wrong... yet it feels so right. Dang but that would be an awesome show. I think 'Rorschach: friend to all the animals' has to be my favourite.

Hey, another Lewis Black fan!

I don't think it was entirely healthy for me to watch that directly after coming home from seeing Watchmen at the cinema.

I'm now going to go to bed, and probably have some very messed up dreams.

People put warnings that something will be damaging to one's sanity, brain, mind or whatever on everything that is slightly out of the norm. We see those warnings, shrug and think, okay, it's going to be a bit zany from here. Fair enough. And we stop to take these warnings seriously.

Then, something like this comes around, and people do not believe. They have forgotten that there is real madness, truly mind-shattering insanity in this world. They no longer care about warnings, they no longer believe in monsters. They have no idea what awaits them when they carelessly click on the link you so deviously provided.

And then there was a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions cried out and proceeded to giggle maniacally.

You, sir, have the blood of countless brains on your hands. I hope you can still sleep at night.

The guy who made this deserves a free drink of his choosing. The worst thing about this video is that the song is such an earworm you can't get it, and by proxy the whole thing, out of your head. I had to fight it off with another earworm.

I'm partially crying because I was laughing so hard, and partially crying because of the sheer mind-crushing horror.

That . . . was . . . amazing/awful/hilarious/soul-stealing/amusing/terrifying/funny/dangerous. Choose any or all of them.

And . . . what Winterwind said.

I'm gonna watch it again now . . . and maybe again . . . dear God it's addictive.

I am rarely that speechless after seeing most fanmade videos, but this was both shocking, funny and obviously a very affectionate parody; it so could be an in-universe show in Watchmen, but there were also so many details from the comics, I had to watch several times to get them all.

I have to second the "Rorshach friends to animals" as my favorite part... Just before "Jon will give you cancer... and turn into a car."

Rorschach petting the German shepherds was great.

While I thought it was pretty awesomely funny, I can't say I understand the people saying it's "insane". :smallconfused:

Anyway, "Jon can give you cancer...and then turn into a car!" is the best line of anything ever. Though the Comedian getting turned into the 'lovable loser' was also pretty hilarious.

So I was watching it a few more times, looking for anything I might have missed, when I noticed the little flyers on the wall when Nite Owl is introduced.

They were obscured and went by too fast for me to catch what they were, so I did a screenshot just in case there was something interesting written on it.

It's an advertisement for "Moloch the Mystic." :smallbiggrin:

Nevrmore
2009-03-08, 01:58 AM
I just like that the little floating dance floor that Nite-Owl is "partying down" on is lifted straight from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Michelangelo is a party dude!). Also Silk Spectre's thing was a reference to Jem and the Holograms, but I never watched that.

Would that even make sense? From what's been said about Tales of The Black Freighter, superhero stuff is hated because public opinion is against costumed vigilantism, so other genres, like pirates became prevalent, since the comic books weren't about supers. Since the comics industry doesn't run superheroes, it'd make sense that tv shows about superheroes would be just as popular, which is to say, make-you-want-to-throw-a-brick-at-the-tv-despised.

Rotipher
2009-03-09, 11:47 PM
Actually, there really was an Ozymandius cartoon show, within the Watchmen universe (Watchverse?). It's explicitly mentioned in the Veidt business documents that preceded the last chapter of the graphic novel, in which it sounds a bit like that world's version of G.I. Joe.

FWIW, Veidt actually rejected a proposal that Nite Owl, Rorschach, and Moloch be introduced as characters in the cartoon, despite his marketing department's lawyers having argued that none of the three would have grounds to challenge such an addition as a breach of copyright. Hence, no scale models of Archie (batteries not included) would be appearing on store shelves, next to the Ozzy action figures.
