Episode 4 has classic written all over it due to that one amazing Homelander revelation.
The greatness of that scene is that it's gross, funny, weird and then with one swift shake it becomes darker than almost everything that they have done so far.

Anthony Starr is ballin' at this stage.
He's so great in the role.

As much as I hate having to wait a week, I'm totally cool with this being done for what a service deems a "big deal". Gets people talking and a lot of click bait comes out when people get a chance to ruminate on the goings on and potential theories.

In this day and age its hard to do that over a few weeks let alone months if you're looking to stay relevant for that long. Does it mean more subscribers? I'd like to see the data on if this works.

Episode 5 was excellent again.
This show is so weird but everybody plays it so strIght.

Anthony Starr's eyes are a whole other level of physical performance.
His face is just perfect for that character.

Love Stormfront and I have no idea where they are going with her. In the comic he's a minor character.

Also, super happy that Terror is in it now.

I was disappointed with Frenchie in the first season, but he's gotten a lot more development so far, and he's growing on me.

I love so much about the show but Ill start by saying the slow burn on Stormfront's "views" is great. They juuuuuust started broaching the topic with A-Train this episode. Knowing the audience would find out about the comic Stormfront it would be easy to introduce the character, then immediately pull back the curtain. There's something more going on with her than just her "views".

Storefront was guilty of the most ludicrously planted piece of racism ever.

"You yellow bastard".

Terrible.

I'm still pretending it was a shout out to Sin City just to get over it.

One thing this show needs to do is make The Boys a much more legitimate threat to superheroes.
They are continually made to look like ineffective dipshits.

Fighting Black Noir with a fire poker? Seriously?!

How is it ludicrous? She's a racist and she was around when it was a commonly used racial slur.

In the comics they have compound v in their veins right from the start. Maybe they're saving that for later in the show.

I didn't have a problem with the fire poker thing. He wasn't using it to be effective, he was just buying time.

It was ludicrous because no racist would save their one moment of truth and honesty to say "you yellow bastard".
That is hack writing at best and deliberate placement at worst.

"Oh I'm too multicultural to know what a racist might call an Oriental person...just have her call the guy yellow. That will do."

I expect the real deal and everybody knows a real racist would go Gook on that one. Yellow isn't even an insult in the mind of a racist.

Trust me I'm Scottish.

It is a big issue and it will inevitably need explained if they just start dosing these guys now.
Very hard to make sense of that in the narrative, they'd have been on it from day one if they could be.

Hopefully they have a good reason for this.

Gook would have made that a perfect episode but the critics are too afraid to say.
Rex Reed would have but he probably thinks The Boys is a "fag show" based on name alone.

Maybe they really do need to hire a consultant that knows a bit about racial epithets.

How much is bail for a Polish prisoner?

Gook is a slur originating from the Vietnam/Korean war and was used in reference to those people.

“Yellow” is a slur from WWII in reference to Japanese people. Stormfront in the comics was from that era, so again, it makes perfect sense that she’d use that specific slur especially towards a Japanese person.

Calling them yellow is not considered racist here, just a common expression.

You can't stick to etymology when you cover racial epithets.
These are interchangeable to all racists.

Episode 5 was a lot of fun. I agree that at some point, the Boys need to gain a physical advantage. They've been surviving by luck and cunning but that well will run dry at some point.

I expect the real deal and everybody knows a real racist would go Gook on that one. Yellow isn't even an insult in the mind of a racist.

Trust me I'm Scottish.
Eh. Nitpicky. Especially since it was from her standpoint a throwaway phrase when essentially he was the only one there to hear it. The "hackier" part was the whole wanting to see his eyes while he died thing... she just got done with indiscriminate mass murder, but this guy she wanted to savor for no reason. It didn't have to be anything over the top... well, more over the top than killing black bystanders simply because they were in the way of her target and not wort the effort of avoiding.

Personally, I think it sounds like a stupid argument that her racism wasn't racist enough for you. Besides, the way this show likes to play with or subvert such expectations from people familiar with the source material, there might be some more truth behind her little "saying without saying" dance with A-Train. Her comment about regular people being beneath folks with super powers might be more accurate than just an excuse to not say black people in that instance. Kinda like old school Magneto logic. It is possible even regular white people are subhuman scum to her, because they don't have powers. But we shall see.

Imagine being a Superhero that isn't invulnerable to bullets. You'd stick to muggings I think.
This show does a good job of showing you how many D Listers there would be if X Men was real life too. I like that some powers are good for certain things but they have no real advantage against deadly weapons.


It's an ever evolving race to figure out what kills them.
