The Boys Now Streaming on Amazon Prime


Quote:
THE BOYS is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about “The Seven,” and their formidable Vought backing.

Hey, yeah! It IS pretty decent!

Kinda dark, definitely adult-themed.

Wow, I'm surprised.

I’m up to episode 7 and I just don’t want it to end, it ‘s so good. I heard it got renewed for Season 2, but it’s going to be a long wait.

Holy sweet mother!, within seconds of checking the trailer I'm saying to myself "This. Is. Different! And in a good way!"

Thanks for the heads up on this!

Edit: Several episodes in, well worth watching. A different take on a pretty tired genre. Solid.

Yeah, although some things are different from the comics, the show is awesome. Really enjoying the hell out of it, wish the season was longer.

Now I'm wondering how this will compare to the new Watchmen.

You guys are right. The show is great. Like a better structured Watchmen. It really makes HBO’s upcoming series look like trash.

Finished it up today. Great series, I can’t wait for Season 2. Best part was watching Homelander just carve up some Jihadi scum with his laser vision. You always want to see Superman do something like that and it never happens in the comics. What a blast.

Lobster!!! Haa haa. Loved how they carried on with the fish ridicule.

What's refreshing is that it had a tight story compacted into 8 episodes. None of that 16\24 episode thing with 9 episodes filled with angst and bull. Lazy writing is exactly that. The twist was fun and season 2 cannot arrive quick enough.

Homelander is just... evil.

The way they've made Homelander so threatening, without the character actually going full on bat crap crazy, is really quite scary.

Fish guy (Deep) will hopefully become quite a threat, eventually, as he's been discarded. (I haven't read the comics)

The actor who played Homelander did an excellent job (really the whole ensemble did). Also, it was great to see Elisabeth Shue again. Had a crush on her in my much younger days. She was great in Leaving Las Vegas.

So, you have to admit that was an amazing scene from Shue. She has you RIGHT there.
