    15:16 8 episodes, 1 hour each....8 hours is not a "short movie," Jay. lol

      Yeah, I saw the movie Yesterday a few weeks ago. It's 2 hours long. I felt like it would have been better if it was 90-100 minutes.

      lol i thought the exact same thing - having said that movies are way too long these days so maybe hes just used to the grind

    Regarding the plane scene. I thought Homelander deliberately fried the controls. Because lives mean nothing, only his status does, and "we couldve saved them" looks better than "We saved them before anyone else could". He wanted things to be run his way, and this first season of the show has shown him gradually making that more apparent.

    The comic is so different, but I enjoyed them both. I actually had to separate the two in my mind and see them as totally separate. I made a motion comic for vol 1 of the boys btw to test out my voice acting skills if anyone wants to check it out.

    The dark humor's fine. The schmaltzy, cliche-romantic shlock & circa-15-years-ago social commentary are less fine. By ep. 5 it has that sinking feeling of being an Amazon Original Series

    If you notice, the boys poster have Homelander and Noir very similar in height and body build.. Hmmm 😀

    Read Marshall Law and The Maximortal. The ideas for The Boys are in these comics.

    Never heard of this Garth Eanus fellow, but his work sounds awfully derivative of Garth Ennis.

    Have Rich and Jay not watched Watchmen? It's a Zack Snyder film that's actually good. And has a very similar premise as The Boys, showing how horrible some of the superheroes are, by them being more "human" in emotion and having plenty of people misusing their powers for personal gain. As a person who hates superhero movies, Watchmen is one of my favourites of the genre.

    Until the very last second, this show delivered. It's rare for me to have this many "what the fuck" moments in just 8 episodes.

    Amazon approved a second season before they released the first so jay and mike take heart you will get a follow up.

      @Hugh James-Berry any red letter media mostly features rich's laugh. Its kind of a staple? But im not too much of a Ricky gervais fan. Whats his mosy popular flick? Aside from the office

    I still think AKIRA is the best anti superhero film. The Landis movie is based on it.

  • The Game Bros with Sirhc and Ar0n

    I know people complain when an adaption deviates from the source material, The Boys comic series is probably my favourite of all time, and when they started to change things it caught me off guard but all I had to do was switch off that part of my brain and now I have a whole new story set in the universe with the characters I like, the more they deviate from the comics from this point the better, although I'd like to see the G-Men saga or some other take on it if possible.

    Yes you are very, very smart for pointing out the supposed irony of Amazon publishing a show with an anti-corporate message. No you do not have to make another comment about it.

  • JohnnyNosebleed
    JohnnyNosebleed 2 days ago +2

    Garth Ennis is entertaining, but everything he does feels like it needs an editor. The showrunners for this feel like they're filling that role. All of the disparate threads of sex, violence, humor, and plot are so much more cohesively packaged in this show than in the comics.
    I find it odd that they're reviewing this without having familiarized themselves with the comics. They even speculate on whether or not it'll have a second season, even though the show was renewed for a second season before the first episode aired.

    I didn't care for it. Oh look something new, a show about super-sociopaths. The only 2 questions that occurred to me were, were they made assholes by power, or were they dicks all along? Which lead to the second question - before I got bored and stopped watching - where's the fucking kryptonite?

    • MrLego3160
      MrLego3160 2 days ago +1

      Made assholes by power, although the seven had theirs from birth, and there is no kryptonite, why would you make a product that renders your main product worthless.

    Most Brits are sick of Simon Pegg, and how he keeps popping up in huge Hollywood franchises and ruining them with his flappy comedy.
    I'm surprised you thought he did an "acceptable" American accent, when it sounded bad even to me.

    • VHSfx

      @Jeff Olsen Just watch him in the Mission Impossible movies. Shouting and screaming like JarJar binks every time he's in danger.

    Sat here and just finished the boys season 1 and I have to say it's probably one of the best TV shows I've seen in a long long time. The funny thing is I was sitting here watching episode 8 and I was trying to figure out who homelander was and it popped finally. Fuck he's Lucas Hood from "Banshee"

    Hopefully they make an extremely faithful version of The Boys, I understand that they had to change Starlight and her induction into the Seven due to bad timing, but there are so much good material in the books for them not to use it, cause otherwise what's the godamn point of taking it to Amazon if you can't go shot for shot

    I can see the potential of the Boys, but it has so many awful, corny lines and the clearly-shot-in-Canada NYC setting annoyed me

  • hybridial
    hybridial 2 days ago

    This series does seem a lot like what I've seen of Garth Ennis' work. If Preacher was anything to go by, Ennis has a knack for taking potentially interesting ideas and making sure to cut out everything that might make them compelling, ensuring only a really unpleasant stain of shit is left.

    Yeah, I really hate his work and I am kinda surprised Rich likes it, especially given Rich's stance on other things. And I love dark stuff, I love horror, but there's a difference between that and what Ennis does, which at times makes Fulci and D'Amato look in good taste.
