‘Watchmen’ Episode Four and Five Review: Pieces and Cars Fall

Watchmen doesn’t seem to miss a beat from week to week. What appears to be the strength of this series is how it’s able to walk that fine line between world-building while staying true to the source material.

We finally get a bit of insight into why looking glass is so deranged. We find out that he was at ground zero in New York when the doomsday clock struck midnight, and 1/2 of the city was killed. His fear is what governs all the choices he makes. However, a seismic event occurs, which causes him to question everything and who he’s aligned with?

1. Did he make a good choice?
