Episode 8 felt unnatural
Thank you guys for featuring my theory on last weeks newsstand episode. It was cool hearing your thoughts on it.
Now Id hate to say it, but I wasnt a fan of Episode 8. I was actually surprised to hear that you guys and a lot of other people liked it so much. I didnt really buy any of the scenes with Angela. I dont think thats how this character wouldve acted in a situation where a guy claiming to be Dr. Manhattan is pretty much hitting on her when shes clearly wanting to be alone. I also really didnt like her reaction to the reveal that she mightve started the whole thing. It just didnt seem genuine. But my biggest problem with the episode is how they handled Dr. Manhattans powers. In this episode, Dr. Manhattan makes decisions and acts in the present moment based on things that hes aware of happening in the future. That doesnt really make sense. And you cant just say thats how Dr. Manhattan experiences time because its really not. He experiences the past, present and future simultaneously, so he knows whats going to happen in the future, but he cant change it. In the comic, Dr. Manhattan always meets the future naturally. He doesnt do something in the present because of the future. When he meets Angela, its not because of anything thats actually happening. Its only because of what will happen in the future. Thats not how Dr. Manhattan works.
I dont like that this whole story has happened because of Dr. Manhattan and the only way for it to happen that way was to change Dr. Manhattans powers. It kind of ruins the whole thing when I think about it that way.
What do you guys think?
Keep up the good work.
