Dear Young and Upcoming Watchmen Fans!

It's clear that you've been scanning YouTube for Watchmen related videos! And it's clear that you've stumbled upon my upload of the Prisoners of Gravity episode Watchmen.

Allow me to welcome you to your brief stay over in the fandom. It's nice meeting you. There's a tray of cookies in the back and some pop in the fridge.

However, while during your stay, could we come to an understanding over some things?

- I don't CARE about your movie reviews. Really, I don't. If I wanted a movie review, I would actually go to a movie review site or ask a friend. Also, you missed the point of my comment, which I tried to keep spoiler free.
- Please stop fantasizing over Watchmen's creators in the comments. IT'S CREEPY. Also, please be noting that this footage is also almost twenty old.
- Also, don't start cranking at me about the age of the footage.
- Don't start bitching at me because you think that some of the details are wrong. First off, I DIDN'T MAKE THE VIDEO. I just uploaded. It's not like I can edit it to change the detail to what you want them to be. Second, honestly, is the idea that the characters are based on Charlton comic characters still a point of disagreement?

However, to the person who said he applauded the episode: I love you. You can stay.

Not all of it is public. But some of it is. o.O

When was the Watchman's episode approx. air date or at least year?

And also of interest if you google Prisoner of Gravity you get a bunch of sites linking basically the youtube stuff you uploaded.

November 1991.

Ha! I looked that up. Bizarre. I love all the blog posts about the YouTube stuff, though.

Wow... does anyone accuse Alan Moore of getting details wrong?

Or make fun of Commander Rick for castin Dan Akroyd as Nite Owl? :)

There was someone accusing Alan Moore about getting details wrong. Which... yeah.

As for the second example, yes and no. I sometimes get messages about making posts are are horribly about of date or out of sync with fandom. It's very odd. I've had some interesting discussions with some people who didn't follow the show at the time because the circle of fans they were in felt that the fictional parts of the show were dismissive and insulting of geek culture.

People confuse me sometimes. Anyway, I never post responses at Youtube, but I was very grateful you posted that episode (and all of the others to date). I dearly loved them when they were still on the air.

I think you commented on the posts I've done of them over here, so it's all good!

And yes, these people really confuse me. I know that the only reason they're finding the show is because of the movie. I'm glad if people enjoy the thing, but some of these messages are just bizarre.
