“People’s lives take them strange places. They do strange things, and well, sometimes they can’t talk about them. I know how that is.” -Laurie Juspeczyk (Watchmen, 1985)
It’s all about the SWAGGER on this episode of Watchmen Podcast featuring your hosts: Carolyn, Wendy, Vanessa, and Toni as we discuss the immense power that Jean Smart imbued in episode 3, “She Was Killed By Space Junk” and the increasing weirdness of Adrian Veidt aka Ozymandias. Plus, your hosts:

HBO provided supplemental reading on their site called “Peteypedia,” with all kinds of history, background and fill-ins for the episode.
LOGLINE: Set in an alternate history where masked vigilantes are treated as outlaws, WATCHMEN, from executive producer Damon Lindelof (Emmy® winner for “Lost”; HBO’s “The Leftovers”) embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name, while attempting to break new ground of its own. Nicole Kassell directs the pilot from a script written by Lindelof.
