    The Boys and The Expanse are home runs!

    If you think that The Boys was trying to do the same thing as Man of Steel with Superman/superheroes in general, than you missed the point of either project, and likely both. Man of Steel was about the media hating Superman even though he was a good guy.

    The Boys is about the media promoting superheroes even though they are bad people.

    You even said that The Boys is really corporations. Man of Steel is not about corporations in the slightest. On the surface, the two projects share similarities, but they don't share similarities at the creative heart of either.

    No mention of using a baby as a laser-gun like in The Incredibles? I couldn't believe it. So great.

    Didn't the way to kill Translucent was sort of a nod to the way the Internet wanted Ant Man to kill Thanos?

    Cucked by fucked up. What a horrible "wife" felt soooooo bad for Butcher. Great acting from litterally everyone involved 10/10

    Karl Urban using that laser-baby as a gun was a highlight, also. I love how he then tenderly puts the baby back in its crib and says "keep your nose clean, or i'm coming for you." Anthony Starr is pretty riveting as Homelander. Really great performance. I also love how sincere and believable the relationships all are. Starlight and Hughie, Frenchie and the X-23 type girl, heck even A-Train and Popclaw. They all have very believable relationships.

    one of the best shows out there, the best about super heroes - way better than Watchmen so far and with probably half the budget , if not less.

    You can just feel the pure contempt they don’t have for each other. It’s so obvious that Jay can stand being around Rich and vice versa.

    "Garth Ennis" is all I needed to hear. I predict this show contains gratuitous swearing, child abuse, violence in general and various forms of implied or explicit sodomy, and quite a few tips of the ol' fedora. And every single person in it is a complete tool.

    I am intrigued.

    The pretty much eats shit from the get go. His friends with benefits dolphin goes splat while he was trying to rescue it. Mr lobsters gets the knife, he pretty much gets finger fucked in the gills against his will. Everyone in the 7thinks he’s a joke, he gets kicked out of the 7 and sent to a mid west town where there is only a small shallow lake. Had a mental breakdown and shaved his head and on top of all that he is noticeably scared shitless of starlight. He knows he can’t take her in a 1v1 . By the end of the season, despite knowing what a piece of shit he is I started to kinda feel sorry for him.

    Are you kidding me? Blac Noir has the perfect comedic timing. The scene with him bogart'ing the pianist, and to go on playing classical music? Perfection. Or the scene where Homelander gives him kudos for doing a good job while he's on the verge of ripping the entire room to shreds. Everyone is in fear, and Black Noir is just there all calm and stoic. Hilarious.

    Jay should give the comics a read, too. They went different directions, but I'm excited for Season 2 of this. Can't wait to see where it goes.

    "Preacher" is weird.
    by design, it is very religious, but the things it has to say? NOPE, that shit won't fly in 2019.
    too many Religious FANatics around, if that series get popular... it will get destroyed in the spot.

    They renewed the show for a second season before they even premiered the first season, so it'll be back.

    “The flash who runs near the speed of light” the flash is way faster than light he actually outran death himself he is basically so fast that speed as a concept doesn’t really make sense or apply to him

    Black Noir (in the comics) was a clone of Homelaner, bred to kill Homelander, if he ever got out of control. I dont think this is a spoiler because the show kind of combined the two into Homelander's character. HOWEVER, his character may be more than he appears, which actually works with his, behind-the-scenes nature.

    Watch Preacher and do this. I really like it, but don't know the comic. Would love your thoughts on it ☺️

    This is one of those TV shows where I hope they have a rough story set out and a plan to end it after X number of seasons. If they Walking Dead this I'll be annoyed because the first season was really good.

    I think that if this show goes the way that Supernatural has, that it will end up a disappointing mess.

    I’ve only watched the first two seasons of Preacher so far, but tbh I actually love it

    Actually Zack Snyder brilliantly/phenomenally relayed his vision with his films. I absolutely loved The Boys- most notably in its allusions/homages and winks/nods to Snyder’s amazing films (especially Watchmen and Batman V Superman).
    I’m eagerly anticipating Season 2!

    They mentioned Preacher.
    And they may not be following the comics books.
    But it sure as shit is hilarious and very entertaining to watch.
    Review it Rich.

    The show was wasted potential written for stupid people and those who don't actually read comics. This was evident by the end of episode 2, when their best solution after hours of thinking about it, for how to kill a man who could form an indestructible shell around himself is to put C4 up his butt. Things that also would have worked and they should have thought of mere minutes into capturing him: Make him drink gallons of bleach/antifreeze, hook a hose up to the exhaust pipe of a car and pump carbon monoxide into the room. Simplest solution: literally just shock him, chain his hands, and put duct tape over his mouth and nose. This was a dumb problem with a dumb solution.
    2nd dumb problem with dumber solution: the plane crash. A dead instrument panel doesn't make the controls stop working, and both the pilot and co pilot have controls. Water landings are the most survivable types of crash, and planes like that are designed to withstand them and keep the people inside from dying. They didn't have to stop the plane, they just had to aim it right to distribute the energy from the impact evenly and slow it down a little, both of which could easily have been done by both heroes. They just became conveniently stupid and heartless/cowardly when they needed to be even worse bastards for the plot.
    There were some cool scenes and great ideas, but half-way through the series, everything gets bogged down with ham fisted MeToo bullshit and completely unnecessary and contrived plot tangents. (Either The Deep is a piece of shit, or he's a flawed man who did good and bad things, pick one. Don't tell me he's off the team, then keep cutting to fucking Iowa every other episode like we're supposed to give a damn. Redeem him, or discard him.) The ending also put me off of any subsequent seasons. There is no way they can write a season 2 that isn't going to be utter horse shit. You got heroes that don't want to act like heroes or villains, obvious villains who don't want to act like villains, and the two villains that were willing to be complete bastards just got reasons not to be. (Homelander might not be a rapist, he might have been used by the giant corporation the whole time, Billy's wife might just be a skank, Billy might have been going after the Seven for no good reason.) If there's a season 2, it's just going to be a soap opera, where everyone is halfway between being a good guy or a bad guy, there's going to be even more ham fisted 'current year' tangential bullshit, and our main character has no reason to continue his quest for revenge when his chance was right in front of him and he threw it away. It was a great idea for a story, too bad the writers have no idea how to write that story.

    Just like TWD, this show has almost nothing to do with the book. Annie blew not one, but three...and "Superman" was the initiator, not "Aquaman". Stupid choices. Why bother adapting if you leave out all the good shit?

  • Collato
    Collato 2 months ago +1

    I have never been more conflicted with how I feel for a character in the Deep... I feel so bad for him and he turns into a likable character... but rapist... also Homelander is such a great character with such a terrifying concept. Cause they’ve done evil Superman a few times and it’s always kinda something like him having a god complex, but what if Superman was a flat out a psychopath. That’s Homelander for you.

    Garth Ennis is a sick MFer. He is good for one thing, pushing the envelope, but otherwise is a bad writer and bad storyteller.
