    *Episodes 1-4:* NYC-brand Corporate America is pure fucking evil and you should be angry
    *Episode 5:* You should take out that anger at anti-LGBT Christians in Ohio
    Nice subversion, Amazon. Real subtle 👍

    I just finished the last episode after binging it in one night and all i can think of is "Im sure Star Wars Mandalorian is really gonna suck and be super unoriginal compared to something like this"

    What about the Batman v Superman-esque scene where Butcher uses a sink to beat Mesmer to death?

    Homelander is like the words most powerful baby. I thought for sure they were gonna reveal that Stillwell was his actual mother during that comical hookup scene where he is oblivious as to how to have sex lol. It was so fucking weird that i was only able to cum once.

    it's funny that every episode begins with an Amazon prime smile.

    Not liking the end of season 8, feels kinda week? I'm just hoping Black Noir plot twist isn't changed because it is way better than abandoning it

    Rich and Jay are national treasures and we must dig up the declaration of independence, cover it with lemon juice, and evade the violent pursuit of hot British archaeologists in order to find out how to protect them.

    I watched the whole series based on this recommendation, and I loved it. Not gonna spoil anything, but I laughed harder than I've ever laughed at a TV show/film at several scenes featuring The Deep.
    And some scenes were genuinely horrifying and literally made my jaw drop. It's all so good.

      As an Aussie I appreciated Butcher's (Yes he's a Kiwi playing a Pom but they swear like us) rather liberal use of Cunt. I was kinda shocked an American show did that. I've been playing online games and casually dropped the C word to have a few yanks suddenly go all polite lol.

    At this pace it's going to be several seasons, I imagine they'll skip a couple of the comics. Hope they keep the ending the same.

    in the Comics, the "plane" is literally one of the two that hit the Towers in 9/11.
    ...not even Amazon wanted to touch that.

    Hearing Rich Evans echo what I've been saying for years about there being absolutely no fucking way Preacher's comic story could ever be shown on TV makes me so happy it almost makes up for the anger I produce every time he mispronounces Ennis.

    I don't know if anyone's said this or something like this already, but the show feels like what Heroes wanted to be and/or was trying to be.

    it seems like they're setting The Deep up for a redemption arc, which is pretty ballsy-yet-applaudable in this post-MeToo climate.

    Really? The dolphin scene you had a problem with and not the weird ass Deep rape scene that came not long after?
    The dolphin scene was fine, the rape scene.... that might have been pushing the envelope a bit.
    It was a serious subject, yet it was so over the top that it kind of made it hard to watch.

    • Eric East
      Eric East 6 days ago

      @Hundredaire Solitaire And the rape scene was especially overly-comedic. At least the dolphin scene is just harmless silliness. It was just really really weird and over the top.

    my problem is really that I'm burnt out on edgy, cynical, dark shit by now. Oh yeah, great you are edgy and cut yourself, yeah, you do dark nasty BS, yippieh you are a stupid prick. I am supposed to be entertained by horrible things all the time? I watch the news, you know!?

    I have ended up with Chinese fairy tale drama because this dark stuff is making me tired. And yes, that is a radical step.

    really no idea where they think they are going with that cliffhanger ending

  • Directionally Challenged

    I love the idea of this! I've actually done a super hero RP that explored this idea too and the players kind of kept creating new villains because they'd just like... throw some guys car at someone or punch their way through a building... Or break a dudes jaw and hospitalize a group of people.

    Okay dudes, this is the most off-topic and boring question, but I have to ask. What is that little vertical white strip thing under the TV that's obviously hiding the cords?? I need that! I mounted our TV and tried to run the cables through the wall but....blah, blah, blah, stupid wood is in the way...I need a discrete thing like that I can just funnel all the cords into.

    Just finished watching the show and I enjoyed every second of it. So many great, genuine characters with lots of different layers and somewhat unpredictable story arcs and personal developments. Just to name A-Train and The Deep, who I really didn't like at first but have become quite interesting in their struggle to rediscover their humanity.
    Homelander, obviously, kills it. Such a thrilling, terrifying, yet sympathetic character! And who knows in what direction his development goes! (Haven't read the comics)
    My secret hero is maybe Frenchie, who is a lovely guy and a perfect counterbalance to Butcher. But I could go on and on about all of them. Every single character is great in their own way and that is a huge compliment for this day and age of entertainment. Can't wait for season 2!

    That one part where Homelander was hunting The Boys down in that restaurant was the most terrifying part to me. Imagine if a serial killer had superpowers and was hunting you down how do you hide from someone like that?

    “Heroes” was cliffhanger after cliffhanger, with nothing of interest except the very beginning and end of each and every episode. I hope “The Boys” doesn’t turn to that.

    I think Jay should read the web series Worm if he hasn't already.

    • Tekky
      Tekky 12 days ago

      @Ergo Proxy Worm is a very dark take on the superhero genre, but frankly it's more about trauma and the ramifications of unstable people having access to potentially lethal abilities that many of them do not understand in detail. There is a lot going on, and it's quite a long story. If you intend on reading it I'd rather not spoil anything, but I'll state that the general mindset of the story is "it gets worse".

    Kripke also made Supernatural, which also ended each season on a cliffhanger. So it makes sense.

    Fun Fact: Despise that Ennis hates superheroes, he actually like the most famous archatype of them - Superman. In his Hitman (no, not that baldy one) storylines he's bassicly the only superhero who isn't potrayed as idiot or asshole.

  • Orb Plant

    Surprised people responded this positively to the boys. Butcher was a cringy stereotype with a hammy backstory. Huey was such a bland generic character, and the romance between him and Starlight was unbearably vanilla. The boys had no chemistry, and they didn't fulfill the "vengeful team of rogues" vibe at all. Definitely didn't live up to the previews. Lots of unfulfilled potential. Homelander killed it though.
