    Yeah I’m just confused because it’s NOT supposed to be free on cable anymore, unless you’re subscribed to HBO through cable, and even then, it wouldn’t be on Hulu live because that’s like a separate cable subscription. But the bottom line is, if you subscribed to HBO or HBO Max, then if the free episodes go away, you can still download the HBO Now app (which may have been renamed to “HBO” already, I’m not sure) to whatever device you’re using and finish watching that way, or, if you subscribed through a cable provider, do so via on-demand.

    Yep. Using your Max credentials. You just won’t have access to the Max content in that app. But Watchmen’s HBO, not Max, so it’ll be there.

    Never mind. It was on Prime for a day. Now it is off. Oh well. At least the first two episodes were great.

    I just finished this show. I have to let it simmer and digest it before I think i can accurately interpret my feelings on it.

    Yeah it was supposed to be free for last weekend only and it seems like a couple of services kept it up free for a couple extra days. I do recommend finishing it whenever you get a chance - episode 3 is where it got really good for me.

    Wish I would’ve known. I’m always behind on these things. Lol. But it was very engaging in the first two episodes. I really liked it, and I am not an enormous Watchmen fan. I will have to finish it sometime. I don’t typically do HBO services, but I think there’s a good bet that I will eventually do a free trial of their newest service at some point. (I wish it would hit DC Universe but I think that service is probably going to be neglected in the wake of HBO’s service)

    I love it. Honestly, I feel like the only ones of the actors who has a shot of potentially winning are Gossett and Smart. Still, nice to see Watchmen get so many nominations.

    Regina is a lock to win.

    Regina definitely has the best shot IMO, but I would also love it if Jovan Adepo got Best Supporting Actor, especially after how fantastic his performance was in "This Extraordinary Being" even though that whole episode was pretty incredible in itself. The entire Watchmen cast was great overall though and I would honestly be satisfied with any of them winning something.

    I was really hoping for a nomination for Tim Blake Nelson, but the three Watchmen dudes nominated in Best Supporting Actor all did fantastic work. I'd give the edge to Adepo

    All the cast were incredible in the series! Really happy for Regina, Lou, Jeremy, Jovan, and especially Yahya!

    He did such a great job as Cal/Manhattan in the last two episodes with the body language, change in vocal inflection, and had terrific chemistry with everyone!

    Also bummed out Tim didn’t get a nomination!
