Hey, I did a rewatch of LOST in the “Watching Thread” and said explicitly to everyone there that the story was about the characters and that by Season 4 they had lost me as a viewer because I didn’t care about the lore or the myth-arc.
So, please, at least make an analogy that fits with what I actually say
Watchmen is different because the characters and the story are more intertwined, it’s a mystery, and it has an end all wrapped up. The comic is very concise and efficient. If the show can’t do that as well - then it’s wasting time. Again, a twenty episode season is far more than enough to tell as succinctly crafted a story as Watchmen.
