Review

Like Heroes but with more wit and grit, HBO’s dark fantasy unveils its grand design slowly. But the series is now branching out, and the best episode to date introduces us to a new character: mystery trillionaire Lady Trieu (Hong Chau).

Angela (a commanding Regina King) makes further inroads into her genealogy, and there are hints of a sisterly bond developing with FBI agent Laurie Blake, while Adrian Veidt (Jeremy Irons) uncovers more layers of his psychopathy.

It’s playful and funny, with everyone from Dolly Parton to Irma Thomas on the soundtrack, but also startling and ideas-heavy. Watchmen’s world is building impressively.

Summary

The Lord trains up two new servants, and Blake gets closer to the truth. Meanwhile, reclusive trillionaire Lady Trieu finally appears and makes a mysterious offer.
