Transcript:

00:00
today morning all right
00:11
this is Rashad HIPAA the hook-up date
00:14
every group this is number 66 the color
00:22
commentator crew will give you booze
00:25
from the Calvary side we are of course
00:38
reviewing the brand-new TV show The
00:41
Watchmen we was watching The Watchmen
00:44
I am Rashad I mean you know You Know Who
00:46
I am
00:47
owner found my block their musical
00:49
publishing a couple of providers who
00:50
review the conditions for marching bands
00:52
across the nation in my compadre so
01:05
we're talking about the new watchman TV
01:06
show the reason we'll start this in
01:08
office because I'm kind of familiar with
01:09
it I know a little bit about the comic
01:12
book I did see the movie and now we're
01:14
watching the TV show the thing that's
01:15
interesting to me is that it's a very
01:18
different take notice you're trying to
01:19
figure it out I'm not sure if this is a
01:23
sequel to the TV show I'm not sure if
01:25
the events are happening after the TV
01:27
show or if this is a retelling oh I felt
01:32
like in watching it is a retelling of
01:34
what was happening basically in the
01:36
original movie and in the comic book
01:38
it's not long after Vietnam doc met dr.
01:43
Manhattan is a weapon that's used by the
01:46
US government and basically Ozymandias
01:49
was a guy behind the scenes is trying to
01:52
force dr. Manhattan in the movie or
01:55
trick him I guess in order to attack New
01:57
York City so that it will bring all
01:59
people together who will stop killing
02:01
each other
02:02
in this situation what I think is
02:03
happening is that they're using instead
02:05
of just random people killing each other
02:07
all the time it's racism the dings and
02:10
you know you have two sides which i
02:12
think is really relevant to what's
02:13
happening in the world right now so it's
02:15
interesting because this episode the
02:18
first episode has absolutely nothing to
02:20
do anything I've seen in the comic world
02:22
but when you watch the previews from
02:24
what's gonna happen in the next couple
02:26
scenes next couple episodes I think it's
02:29
gonna happen it's gonna be more relative
02:32
I really enjoyed this it's a whole bunch
02:34
of what the heck is gonna happen here
02:36
and I definitely liked how it looked at
02:38
some things about black culture so let's
02:41
get into that real quick here it did
02:43
talked about the UH the race where I got
02:45
the race right but basically the yeah
02:54
and let me just clarify because I saw an
02:57
emergency awesome when you're watching
02:58
it he said yeah this is the thing that
03:01
really happened so let's make sure that
03:03
everybody knows this is something yes it
03:05
really happened like I know it's a it's
03:07
a retelling of events that may be
03:09
watching it maybe you don't know that
03:11
this is actually a real thing yes it was
03:14
a real thing the wealthiest group of
03:19
black people in America at the time you
03:21
know black people trying to you know
03:22
trying to achieve kinda yeah yeah if I'm
03:24
you establish and have their own
03:26
businesses and things like that and the
03:28
way from the area did not like that and
03:29
so they came in and they massacre
03:32
they're about 100 with airplanes I mean
03:35
what the freaking heck right so you know
03:47
the grind over this type of stuff
03:50
particular sense this is something
03:52
that's not very well known but this very
03:55
did I appreciate this movie or TV show
03:57
or bringing this to the attention of
03:59
people cuz I've never I've never seen
04:01
this portrayed in I'm using your word
04:03
against my second time I've never seen
04:05
this hum this particular event
04:10
shown on TV whatsoever see you know
04:13
smaller versions of that like in
04:14
Rosewood over all the TV show is great
04:18
and I look forward to seeing what's
04:20
gonna happen also you girls ever doing
04:22
it yeah yes he's doing great
04:24
he's come a long way from anyway she did
04:37
a fantastic job she definitely is worthy
04:40
a bit Oscar and I can't wait to see her
04:41
black woman power
04:43
superhero gold forever what about you
04:45
chuck what you think about this this TV
04:47
show I'm coming from the other side
04:50
nothing on Washington I knew it was a
04:52
movie and then we actually watched it I
04:56
didn't know anything about it at all I
05:04
was like yes he was and hold him down I
05:20
understand what they were doing you know
05:38
it's gonna be there
05:39
what's the prom girls a boy boy so I
05:45
kind of their boy version of my boys
05:47
prettier
05:47
I'm a superhero type of show and I
05:51
didn't know how to play house completely
05:59
blown away I was like oh wow this time
06:01
every show right here
06:03
you know black power they represent
06:07
right we're all in there and the power
06:11
so it was it was a pool table and
06:14
everything you know seeing things how I
06:18
guess our world changed in certain ways
06:22
you know they could definitely have went
06:24
down this road yeah
06:26
some things are a little extreme
06:29
I got a whole like you know they can't
06:31
policemen can't tell you where they're
06:33
going you know they got the math on so
06:36
all of that's like kind of cool is I
06:37
shopped it around so they don't it don't
06:39
keep it everything hit and everything
06:41
comes up on that first episode of why
06:42
stuff is happening so even if you
06:44
haven't watched watching like me you
06:46
still still a gritty shows watching them
06:48
to watch my head doesn't help you at all
06:50
but I actually do some reviews on it
06:55
they did I think you were saying
06:58
after the comic books and ended so those
07:12
it's definitely seems like so I'm gonna
07:15
watch the someone that gets my top
07:19
moments were silver team the king just
07:23
go beating people down wet Oh jokes like
07:27
she's kind of my arrow or something up
07:29
in these episodes ooh walking in places
07:31
kicking doors down dragging people out I
07:35
had that hole and I was like my biggest
07:38
thing I would be a chief police chief
07:42
actually everybody know his face I'm
07:44
like I thought I kept saying I said it
07:48
like 15 times like each other yeah I
08:09
take you had your mask on like yeah
08:17
definitely find so intriguing I'm so
08:20
thankful that they're actually giving
08:26
this is cool to see movies and TVs ever
08:30
trained who we are we can do in this
08:34
world why not just be like same typical
08:36
he's a thug or somebody that's you know
08:38
low and they have to come up from the
08:41
streets you know that's how he's seeing
08:43
like policeman we're heroes kind of
08:48
married yeah
08:57
I don't see a lot of Mary black couples
09:01
and the TV shows a lot of mixed ones a
09:03
lot of you know other races there Mary
09:05
but you know all really show I think I
09:07

09:13
different but it was cool to see them
