The Boys

Deserves it's own thread.

Couple episodes in and I'm loving it. Great adaptation of the comic.

Cool that they got Simon Pegg as Hughie's dad, since Hughie was based around Pegg.

Think I read about the comic years ago, "Mothers Milk" is definitely a memorable name. Amazon Prime too, so one I can definitely watch.

Most of the characters are spot on, and really great. Hughie isn’t Scottish but they still captured the personality of the character really well. Butcher, Homelander, and Starlight are the standouts so far. Theyre adapted from the comic excellently. Only disappointment is Frenchie. He’s not the happy go lucky crazy guy he is in the comics. In this, he’s more or less just really strung out.

It’s not quite as over the top as the comic, but some of that stuff wouldn’t work as well on screen anyway. I think they found a really good medium in between keeping the story grounded and the crazy shit from the comics.

Hughie isn't how it would be pronounced in Scotland anyway.

Shoe or Shoe-E is how we say it. Like what you put on your feet. Like if you're calling a pig.

I like what they've done with Stillwell here. In the comic (where the character is a male) he is a perfectly flawless, corporate machine who is always ten steps of everyone else, allt he way to the end. Which is very impressive and all that, but it also leads to him being a bit one dimensional.

They gave Madelyn just enough vulnerability to be more interesting, while keeping that cool calculated strength needed to give orders to living gods.

Also holy shit, that ending goes way off the rails from the book. Not a bad thing depending on where they go with it. It's definitely got me interested to see what happens with it.

SPOILER: show
Kinda bummed they killed Stillwell already though. She was great.

First episode is totally bonkers...
Good casting, particularly Anthony Starr - his expression looks so nefarious for a hero
Erin Moriarty is good casting too, vulnerable yet formidable is a tough one to pull off. Take note Marvel, this was missing from *Cap'n Maveral.
I'm enjoying this, it's all upside down and back to front but it all seems familiar until you're shown what's up.

This one is going to lead me down dead ends and false corridors before it's over.

I thought this was going to be extremely bleak but it's hilarious too. I mean I'm not one for gore but I can handle it if it's as ridiculous as what I just saw.
I'm 3 episodes in and this programme hasn't settled into one definitive style yet. It's like a comedy and a thriller with occasional extreme violence.

Kripke has really taken what he learned from supernatural and harnessed it here. He manages to juggle genuine levity without compromising the sting of the razor sharp social commentary.


I dont know how long they can keep the stakes this high but right now the show is aces.

Elizabeth Shue probably doing her best work since "Leaving Las Vegas" here.
She's not chewing scenery either, she's completely at ease in the character. Erin Moriarty is equally adept at this as is Anthony Starr and the more I see him I really quite like the Quaid guy playing Hughie.
Karl Urban is solid as a rock and carrying a sizeable share of the comedy on his shoulders, it's always great to have Karl Urban as he is shamefully underrated.

The deep is probably my favorite character. Lost my shit at both of his attempts to save sea creatures.

I keep thinking the wrong people are responsible for the shit that's going down... I'm well impressed with the way this has been put together. So creepy and grim and I am leaving with some weird, weird boners.

Romeo and Juliet had nothing on these two.
You think you're getting one thing, you get another. You assume the tone and they flip it on you every time.

This is a perfect show.

103


this is the ep i was waiting on. First two establish the world and the stakes. 103 slows things down and lets us see the characters live in the world they set up. This is more representative of what the show will be long tern.


Well paced show. Really knows what its doing. Structurally this is very well constructed tv.

I love the way it flips through genres, some scenes completely mislead me into thinking I was going into a horror, comedy, thriller or action scene and then completely changed within moments.
I haven't read the source material but I take it there is an ending to all of it because the wiki page says it ran 72 issues and hasn't been continued. That's a positive sign to me after the way GoT ended.

I do prefer shows that have an ending and build toward it. Its hard to see past success though. Most shows end up stretching for extra seasons even after their story is ready to end. How I Met Your Mothers final 2 seasons for example.

It has an ending and it’s an awesome twist, though developments in the show kind of contradict it.

BIG TIME SPOILER FROM THE COMIC
SPOILER: show
In the comic Homelander has no recollection of raping Becka because it was actually Black Noir. But here he doesn’t seem confused at all and seemingly did do it. Which begs the question what their plans are for Black Noir.

Hmmm.
MORE BIG TIME COMIC SPOILERS SERIOUSLY BIGGEST PLOT TWIST OF THE ENTIRE SERIES HERE

SPOILER: show
Black Noir puts on Homelanders suit before he does it. He also takes a bunch of pictures of himself slaughtering an entire family, and eating their baby. As fucked up as the show is, the comic is really vile. Anyway the fact is, Black Noir is a stronger clone of Homelander whose entire purpose is to be a killswitch for Homelander if Vought American ever feels it's within their best interest to off him. Supposedly they used their experience of raising homelander to better control Noir. But they still didn't get it quite right because the guy obviously goes insane. Because his entire purpose of existance is to kill Homelander and it's looking like it's never going to happen. So he does a whole bunch of awful horrid shit while wearing homelander's costume to try and trigger Vought into giving him the order.

So the footage of Homelander entering the room with Becka makes sense because it could still be Noir. What doesn't make sense is the actual Homelander reacting like it was him. If it was Noir, he should be confused and have no recollection of the encounter. I dunno we'll see where they go with it.

The show is a lot better than the book to be honest. The book is pretty good for a laugh most of the time, and there are genuinely great characters, but it's a bit up it's own ass, and at times feels more concerned with shitting on superheroes for the sake of it instead of telling the story.

It's a common problem with Garth Ennis cause at times he's more concerned with using his characters as his own personal soapbox. Butcher and Jesse Custer are literally the same fucking character. Two hard bad asses who constantly go on rants about something or other because something triggered Garth that day.

Like, don't get me wrong, Garth Ennis is a great writer, but he'd be a lot better if he wasn't so concerned with constantly telling people his opinions on everything.
