This would be cool. We can have a community watch of the movie before the show starts. Maybe even community read of the comic.

We already knew that Damon Lindelof's upcoming HBO Watchmen series wouldn't be a direct adaptation of Alan Moore's classic tale, but based on some new details about the show's characters, it doesn't appear to be any kind of adaptation whatsoever.

The guys over at That Hashtag Show have shared some descriptions for the show's main players, and there doesn't appear to be a single recognisable character among them.

Angela Abraham: African-American female cop. Independent and intelligent, she's also a realist. She's married to Cal, with whom she has a daughter and is fiercely protective of them both.

Cal Abraham: African-American male who is the stay-at-home husband of Angela. While he seems at home as the king of his castle and being a loving husband and father, it's clear his past has a different story to tell.

Looking Glass: A good looking cop, the native Oklahoman isn't simple as his rural accent makes him appear to be. A top interrogator and behavioral scientist, he may also be a bit of a sociopath.

Panda: An ethnic desk cop, he's cynical and tough and puts his job first. Not a friend to many, he uses comedy to keep people at bay.

Red Scare: Mafioso, track suit wearing cop. His Russian accent lends to his abrasiveness.

Pirate Jenny: An androgynous and lustful bisexual cop, Jenny is an anarchist at heart.

Jane Crawford: The wife of the police chief, Judd, Jane is a veterinarian who's sharper than her guarded persona lets on.

Old Man: A former cop who is still an imposing figure despite his age.

So, the Watchmen TV pilot will be about... a bunch of Oklahoma police officers?

There are a couple of possibilities here. For one, the names and even the breakdowns could be faked in order to throw people off; or, the descriptions are real and the show is going to be about a bunch of Oklahoma Police officers!

If you've read Moore's comic you'll know that the cops did have a small presence, and were known for having it in for the costumed vigilantes that began to do their jobs for them. Is there a chance Lindelof and co. have based the series around that premise?

We'll just have to wait and see, but in the meantime be sure to let us know what you think in the usual place.

It really doesn't matter what they say or show, I will be watching this just because of Lindelof.
