Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Watchmen is the sequel to the landmark 80s graphic novel. The original story was notorious for its extreme violence and psychotic characters, so some of that finds its way here.
  • Some of the violence is racially charged which adds to its intensity level even more.
  • In the very first episode, an entire field of cattle is graphically gunned down. This is upsetting for animal lovers.
  • Rated TV-MA for intense sequences of strong disturbing violence throughout, disturbing behavior, grisly images, language, sexuality and some drug materiel.
