The Best Quotes From 'Watchmen' The Show

Updated July 13, 2020 385 votes 42 voters25 items

The best Watchmen TV show quotes prove the series doesn't need a second season when the first season was so revolutionary. The show functions as a follow-up to the historic graphic novel from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. The series takes place 34 years later from the events in the graphic novel. This time, it focuses on the conflict between the white supremacist group, the Seventh Cavalry, and the Tulsa Police Department. 

A whole new crop of heroes is introduced in the series. However, there are appearances from heroes in the original comic book run, including Silk Spectre, Ozymandias, and Doctor Manhattan. The show became a hit, in part due to the superb dialogue, which consisted of ruminations on vigilantes existing in this world as well as on the idea of superheroes in general. 

With just nine episodes, the HBO series changed what was possible with a limited series. But what do you think the best quotes from Watchmen are? Vote for the lines that made the show a must-watch for you.
