I have a hard time believing they will be able to create stories that have even remotely the same level of impact as the original watchmen...

I am sorry, but all these actresses are way to old to play these characters. The actresses who play these characters need to be 25 - 30 not 35 - 40.

What bothers me is not the nudity or the dialogue itself, but rather the implied use of sex as a metaphor for love. Having this scene take place in the bedroom serves to represent the intimate nature of their relationship. However, what it also does is reinforce the idea that the intimacy of their relationship comes exclusively from engaging in sexual activity , and what can happen is an impressionable mind can develop the association that sex = love. While it is true that sex is perhaps the greatest expression of love, the converse is not true. So what can ultimately happen is people going through life with idea that love comes from sex and not the other way around. IE "I should have sex with this person so they will love me."
Because the stereotype of personal intimacy is so often portrayed in media through the device of sexual intercourse as we develop it is easy to get the idea that intimacy can ONLY be achieved by sex, which leads to unhealthy relationships.

I am no Nancy Drew fanboy (or am I?) but I think of the group listed Emma Roberts is probably the only one with the street cred to pull it off

MAUS changed my understanding of what a graphic novel could be.
Definitely a must read.
