I typically hate cap shut, but this is really good. Check it if get the chance.

Binged the whole thing this weekend it was pretty fucking great
I really love Homelander, just loves being evil and is crazy and manipulative. Really want some more backstory and shit about early tests or something in season 2. When he killed Stillwell that was some ice cold shit, also that ending, man Homelander really knows how to land those emotional punches

So it's about super villains?

I've already watched the first five episodes and I've been really enjoying it tremendously. What I appreciate about the show is its deconstruction of the superhero mythos and I think that it's especially relevant now because of how popular superhero films have become and have become a cog in the corporate machine like Disney's for making money and shaping public perception about them. A good example I thought was Homelander deciding not to save the passengers on the plane, which ended up making for a better story in order to gain support for the bill to integrate supes into the national defense. Plus I think the show has the most hypothetical yet realistic take on what living in a world of superheroes could potentially have like how

The violence is gory but it's fun in a crazy what the fuck kind of way like when Pop Claw had Alex eat her out on for her to crush his skull with her vagina or Billy Butcher using the baby's laser eyes to take out those armed guards. Looking forward to seeing how the last three episodes play out.

That's kind of a blank statement but it's more so about the corruption that those superheroes, who are basically mercenaries contracted to a PMC in Vought, and how The Boys and trying to expose them for who they really are through sabotage and violence.

I'm tired of glorifying celebrities. Trash celebrities, they're worse than actors. Unleash a pack of them on one of the floating plastic isles and see how long until they eat the camera crew.

I've been skimming past this thread for days because the OP pic made it look like a Capeshit general but holy fucking fuck, The Boys is finally out?!?! Aw yea, here's hoping it's as good as Ash Vs Evil Dead and Preacher for fucked up, violent comedy TV.

They use their powers for good 95% of the time, but the 5% is what's called into question. Imagine of Superman was accused of a #metoo moment? Would his years of service exclude him from being punished for forcing an intern to blow him?

I was just flipping through the showrunner's AMA and this made me LOL so fuckin hard
>There was ONE SCENE that Amazon said FUCK NO, you have to cut. I couldn't quite understand why considering everything else we have in the show, but: Homelander, after being dressed down by Stilwell in episode 2, was standing on one of the Chrysler building Eagles. He pulled his pants down and started jerking off, mumbling "I can do whatever I want" over and over again until he climaxed all over New York City. We shot it! Oh my God, Anthony was the BEST in that scene. Amazon seemed to think it wasn't necessary. I thought it told me something about his psyche.

Finished the season and I throughly enjoyed it. I was really surprised by the twist at the end with Becca being alive with Homelander's son so what I'm wondering is if Homelander didn't really know the truth of what happened to Becca until her forced it out of Jonah, it tells me that Vought had covered it up by faking her disappearance to live in seclusion. I like Karl Urban and Antony Starr in their roles and like in Banshee, Starr does a good job of being able to play an anti-hero role although I think Homelander's intentions are more devious than Hood's were.

I do also think this show does a good job of addressing the role that superheroes play within the military-industrial complex since the MCU really hasn't been as in-depth with it other than with Civil War. It is also funny that the show got Simon Pegg to play Hughie's dad when Hughie in the comics was based off Simon.

That was a pretty cool easter egg, coonsidering pegg is to old to play hughie.

I'm still trippin over the last episode. My man Billy got cucked into high heaven, man. As far as Homelander goes, it's been a while since I've seen a villain who legitimately gets off on being evil.

I thought I recognised Homelander, he's played by the kiwi guy who was in an old show a friend of mine got me into a while back called Outrageous Fortune, I don't remember much but I do remember him playing some kind of fuck-up character and being really really good in it, check it out. Crazy to see him go from a rinky little Kiwi soap playing a perpetual fuck-up to a big budget Super Hero critique playing a Superman analogue

is that the asian guy from mythbusters in the background?

There's like 12 episodes of Star Trek continues on Youtube.

The initial ones are kinda bad and the later ones are very rushed to get them out before CBS dropped the hammer on fan shows.

But the middle ones are really good.

I thought it was a great change by not having flashbacks, other than Butchers Origin we find out about things as they're happening. Im curious to see what they do with Black Noir. He reminded me of the recent seasons of Preacher, things that didn't happen in the comic that youd think would have. Him sipping tea and playing piano was perfect.

Black Noir was revealed in the comics but this version changed it up enough that he might not have the same origin. Still kept the character as a mysterious behind-the-scenes guy though.

I was hoping that Homelander would go completely off the reservation at some point. I guess I'll have to wait for next season.

That sounds amazing.
