Just a heads up: Stephen McHattie, who portrayed the character Moss in seasons 2 and 4 will be appearing in the upcoming film adaptation of Alan Moore's Watchmen as the character Hollis Mason (fans of the comic know who I'm talking about).

Yeah I heard he was going to be in that flick. I'm dying to see this movie even tho I have NO idea who the 'Watchmen' were, other than some kind of comic book superheroes, but the trailer looks amazing...:)

Watchmen is a single volume graphic novel by Alan Moore, whom most comic circles have long maintained is the best writer currently working in the medium.  While the trailer makes it out to look like a superhero ensemble film (ala X-Men), that's not entirely accurate.  At it's heart it's a mystery, as well as a character study, but moreover, the story examines the micro- and macro-effects that the emergence of superheroes would have on the real world, and effectively serves as a critical deconstruction of the superhero archetype.

Though the story relies heavily on flashbacks, much of it takes place in an "alternate history" version of 1986 (which is when it was originally published), and as such, draws heavily from the lingering paranoia that gripped much of the populace during the height of the cold war.  From what I've read, the filmmakers opted not to shift the timeline to the present day, so for all intents and purposes the movie will be a period piece...so to speak.

You can find a copy of Watchmen at just about any book store.  I would definitely recommend giving it a read, because while I'm hoping against hope that the movie will be good, it's such a rich, multi-layered story that it's almost bound to lose something in translation.
