Who watches the Watchmen?

A quickie review from Cameron Reilly of the Podcast Network ( of the Watchmen movie. I'm pretty jazzed about seeing it-I only recently read the graphic novel, which is just as great as everyone said it is.


When I see President Obama speak about what he plans to do, it feels kind of like if Terry Francona promised the Red Sox would win 130 games this season. It's not impossible, certainly-there's no law of the universe that prevents it from happening. (If Francona promises the Red Sox will win 195 regular season games this season, for example, I would be forced to conclude he was very bad at math.) But it seems impossible-based on everything I know, it doesn't seem possible to do it-win 130 games in the regular season, or achieve health reform, energy independence, and economic recovery.


  1. I loved the comic-book series. I read it as that long before it was compiled into a graphic novel.

    However, the movie to me looks to be poorly lit and over-stylized.

  2. It does look dark and shadowy. I can't wait to see how it is.

  3. It seems impossible based on everything I know also, but I am hoping I am damn wrong, since I don't have a whole lot of better ideas. My ideas are drastically different, but that is not to say better. Since he is now my president, I hope he has it going on.
    I found you through a list of NJ blogs (which I am not on, and plan to keep it that way) so popped over to check you out. ~Mary

  4. Thanks Mary.

    That is typically my response as well-OK, so what's your plan? More tax cuts? How's that worked out for us so far?
