If this picks up from the movie and/or comics there's a lot of explaining to do if they really want to call it The Watchmen instead of just having a series set in the world of The Watchmen. Considering the cameos of Dr. Manhattan I get the feeling it is the former rather than the latter. Viewers are going to need to be spoon-fed the backstory of the team specifically.
If the superhero group had ever been called The Watchmen (which they weren't), then I'd agree with you. The groups were known as The Minutemen or The Crimebusters. Since one of the major themes of the book was "Who will protect us from the protectors (ie, Who watches the Watchmen/Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?), there really wouldn't be any reason to change the name of the series.

This is the nuance that needs to be explained in the series. I get it, you get it, but without the back story of the comics and then the events of Dr. Manhattan are obviously going to play a big part. Hell, the movie was disjointed as hell and that's one of the reasons comic book people are the stanches fans and it basically meh'ed at the box office.

And without having that shit explained is going to leave people confused.

Looks like a freshly opened can of cold beans. I'll gulp it down & likely feel like shit & not hungry for more after. Not confident they've got the CG to pull this off.
